Many vegetable butters contain a "bouquet" of useful trace elements. Kokum butter is very rich in fatty acids - it is the most stable used in cosmetics. In addition, it has enough antioxidants to "cheer up" the skin and help eliminate the visible signs of aging.
Kokum is a common name for Indian garcinia. This evergreen tree grows in India without the need for irrigation, pesticide treatment and fertilizers. In orange-purple fruit plants grow 5-8 large seeds. Seeds account for about a quarter of the volume of the fetus, and 60% occupy the nucleus of the seed. Kokum butter is obtained from the nuclei - they contain about 44% of the useful composition.
Outwardly, coconut butter resembles cocoa butter and shi. It is more solid and crumbly than other butters, can be yellowish or light gray. The butter melts at + 32-40˚С, remains solid at room temperature, but melts when applied to the skin and absorbs into it.
Cocum butter contains 80% of saturated fatty acids - they provide stability of the composition (its hardness) and long shelf life.
