Kokum butter is a hard butter that contains nutrients and antioxidants which help nourish and repair damaged, cracked skin. It is naturally flaky and brittle when at room temperature making it popular for its stability. Once it comes into contact with your skin it melts and absorbs easily leaving it feeling soft and moist without a greasy residue.
Kokum Butter can be used on its own though it is more popular as an ingredient and thickener in lotions, soaps and body butters. Kokum is a vegan butter and is safe for all skin types.
Kokum Butter is derived from the Garcinia Indica tree, native to India. It is extracted and mechanically refined without the use of chemicals or additives.
It is a white or off-white color. It has a mild to nonexistent odor.
Kokum is often used as a substitute for Cocoa Butter due to its similar texture and the fact that it has little to no scent.
This butter is particularly popular for its fast absorption and healing abilities.

How to Use
Melt a pea size amount of the butter between your hands and apply to your face or body. You may also mix this into homemade skin care products.
If your product is melted upon arrival, put it in the fridge until solid, then keep it stored outside the fridge in a cool place away from direct sunlight.
If your product is too firm, you can soften and partially melt it by placing the jar in a bowl with 2 inches of hot water. Let the jar sit there until the butter has softened enough to be used.
