How to use it
It is an excellent moisturiser that improves the skin’s elasticity. Helps to combat fine lines and wrinkles as well as age spots. Very regenerative to mature and ageing skin.
Kokum Butter makes an excellent skin salve as it is quite brittle, and when this is blended with Cocoa Butter and other oils, it makes a very elegant, smooth and almost gel like texture. Use for sensitive skin, damaged and inflamed skin.
Dry skin benefits exceptionally well with Kokum Butter as it improves the skin’s barrier for natural hydration without feeling sticky, greasy or heavy. As an emollient, it softens the skin and restores elasticity to the skin.
Excellent for use in hand creams and foot creams for dry, cracked, rough and calloused skin. Kokum Butter will soften the skin and restore the flexibility, leaving the skin feeling very supple. It helps to heal cracks and fissures in the heels and between the toes. Its antibacterial qualities are useful for these types of foot creams as well.
The texture is non greasy and is absorbed into the skin very fast. Use in men's aftershave products and moisturisers.
Use in leg lotions for healing marks left by razor nicks when shaving or other scars.
