Kokum Butter comes from the seeds of the Garcinia indica tree indigenous to India.Kokum Butter is a firm, cream-coloured and stable vegetable butter, which exhibits a typical oily scent. It offers excellent emollient properties which promotes a healthy-looking skin. It is 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. With its relatively high melt point, Kokum Butter liquefies slowly at skin temperature making it ideal for use in lipsticks and lip balms. It is also used in bar soaps, body butters, creams and conditioners.
Non-comedogenic (does not clog pores).
