INCI: Garcinia Indica (Kokum) Butter

Rich in antioxidants and Vitamin E, Kokum butter is often used as a substitute for Cocoa Butter. It's derived from the fruit of India's native Kokum tree, and harbours antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Kokum butter is one of the hardest and most stable vegetable butters available. It is solid at room temperature but melts immediately when applied to the skin. It has a high fatty acid content, comprising of up to 80% of stearic-oleic-stearic (SOS) triglycerides. It is non-greasy, which makes it great as both a mosturiser and a scalp treatment. It is an excellent emollient and absorbs quickly into the skin, promoting elasticity and skin regeneration. 

Traditionally, Kokum butter has been used traditionally to treat infections, digestive disorders, and even arthritis. 

This product is intended for external use only.

Lovely and light on the skin

I used this to make a body butter that was so lovely I forgot to take a photo of it haha it didn't last long. I find it to be lighter on the skin than shea butter and less oily feeling. It's a bit crumbly by itself so I'd recommend combining with other ingredients to make a skin product. Might try it in cold process soap too.

Lovely Kokum.. after I re-melted it

The kokum arrived very granulated making it completely unusable, luckily there is an easy fix, you will need to remelt the kokum butter in a double boiler over a low heat until it is completely clear, this can take a while, then pour it into whatever you wish to store it in, I poured mine into silicon moulds so I could access smaller portions when I need them. You will need to rapidly cool the butter in the freezer to avoid granulation. Unmould and store. It should now be smooth and creamy in texture.

Great for making solid conditioner

It does not have very strong smell which I'd liked compared to Cocoa butter.
