It’s summer and the days are getting hotter and hotter. Our two newest products are from some of the warmest climates around; surprisingly, we did not plan to debut these in the summer months but if the shoe fits…
Have you tried shea butter, cocoa butter, or jojoba butter for your skin care and still looking for another unique butter to try? Illipe Butter is a great alternative! It’s similar to other natural butters and becoming a favored moisturizing ingredient throughout the personal care and cosmetic realm. Illipe butter is a white, solid butter pressed from the sun-dried nuts of the Shorea Stenoptera plant. Shorea stenoptera is a tree native to Borneo, which is the largest island in Asia.
Illipe Butter – Organic Fair Trade (B4079) is a natural emollient and yields highly moisturizing properties for the skin due to its high content of stearic, oleic, and palmitic essential fatty acids. Products seeking to improve skin elasticity often utilize illipe butter such as topical lotions, body butters, natural deodorants, soaps, and lip balms. Due to its higher melting point, higher than other butters such as Jojoba and Cocoa butter, it is specifically sought after for products that are likely exposed to higher temperatures, such as a lip balm being carried around in your pocket during the summer weather! Purchasing our Organic and Fair for Life Certified Illipe Butter positively contributes to the Dayak people, natives of the rainforests in which this plant is grown and harvested.
Our second product comes from the seeds of a beautiful tropical flower: Hibiscus Seed Oil – Virgin Organic (S1269)! You may have seen hibiscus-infused products on the shelves more lately as it’s a trending ingredient! Hibiscus petals are often steeped in water, delivering a tart flavor to beverages, and now its seed oil is gaining traction as an ingredient in skin and haircare! Hibiscus seed oil is high in palmitic, oleic, and linoleic fatty acids. It’s content of antioxidants like vitamin E makes it an excellent addition to any personal care product.
