Kokum Butter comes from the Garcinia indicia tree grown in India. It has a marbled yellow-brown complexion with a slight earthy scent.
Off-white to light yellow
Often under-rated, Kokum Butter is one of the most hard and stable vegetable butters. It exhibits excellent emollient properties which can assist with skin regeneration. With its relatively higher melt point, Kokum Butter melts slightly at skin temperatures making it ideal for lipsticks and balms. It is also a great addition to bar soaps, body butters, creams and conditioners. It is more quickly absorbed into the skin without leaving a greasy feel and is often used as a substitute for Cocoa Butter due to its uniform triglyceride composition.
