INCI: Shorea stenoptera Seed Butter
Description: Illipe Butter is very similar in nature to cocoa butter but has a higher melting point which makes it suitable for making hard bars of soap. It has a mild characteristic odour and is creamy white in colour. Illipe Butter helps protects against UV-A and UV-B rays and as such can be found in products promoting sun protection and sunburn relief, while its skin softening and long-lasting moisturising properties make Illipe Butter a good choice to help repair chronically dry, cracked skin.
Uses: Typically used in lotions, creams, conditioners, body balms, hair balms, bath bombs, bar soaps, lip balms and lotion bars.
Skin Type: Suitable for all skin, especially mature skin, and dry, damaged hair.
