Illipe Nut Butter is derived from the nuts of the Shorea stenoptera tree, a species indigenous to the dense rainforests of Borneo in Southeast Asia. For centuries, local communities have harvested these nuts, both as a source of nourishment and for their precious oil content. The butter, known for its similarity in composition and properties to cocoa butter, boasts a unique set of attributes. Rich in essential fatty acids and Vitamin E, Illipe Butter stands out for its exceptional moisturizing qualities and its ability to restore elasticity to the skin. Holistically, its use in traditional practices often leans towards addressing skin issues and as an emollient in hair preparations. The butter's skin benefits are numerous: its deeply moisturizing properties make it ideal for extremely dry or flaky skin, and it offers a protective barrier that can help the skin in harsh weather conditions. Illipe Nut Butter also assists in skin regeneration, reducing the appearance of fine lines and keeping the skin supple. Due to its stable nature, it's a popular ingredient in cosmetics and skincare formulations, from lip balms and body butters to lotions and hair conditioners. Embracing Illipe Nut Butter in a skincare regimen not only guarantees moisturized, resilient skin but also connects one to an age-old tradition from the heart of Borneo's rainforests.
