Used for hair care, hair dressings, body butter, soap & sun care products. It also adds more body when melted into massage oils.

Coconut Butter is cold pressed from coconuts and the resulting fat is deodorised leaving  soft, off white coloured butter. It melts quickly on the skin as its melting point is 20°C - 28°C.

A typical fatty acid profile is:
2% – 16% Caprylic Acid
2% – 16% Capric Acid
40% – 58% Lauric Acid
12% – 22% Myristic Acid
4%  – 12% Palmitic Acid
1.5% – 12% Stearic Acid 

Inci:

Cocos Nucifera Seed Butter

It is an excellent emollient used for conditioning the skin and giving flexibility and shine to dry and coarse hair.

It gives extra texture when used it creams and lotions.

Use 1% to 100%. As it is heat stable, it can be added in the fat stage (stage 1) when making creams, lotions, butters and balms.

Use for hair products, skin care creams, lotions , butters and balms as well as massage products and sun care products. Adds a good, stable lather when used in soap making but don’t use more than 30% as it can then become drying..
