The Beauty of Kokum Butter

August 18, 2022

chunks of natural kokum butter

Many different butters, creams, and lotions are marketed for treating dry skin, hair, and lips. However, we frequently discover that these products have drawbacks, such as an oily and heavy consistency that causes discomfort and causes greasy skin and hair. However, the restorative qualities of kokum butter, a natural moisturizer that is light and straightforward, are beneficial to users.

What is kokum butter?
Kokum butter is made from the fruit seeds of the kokum tree, otherwise known as Garcinia Indica. These trees can primarily be found in India. The seeds are rich with saturated fat such as stearic acid, fatty acids such as omega-3 and omega-6, as well as vitamin E; all of which provide wonderful health benefits. Kokum butter takes the form of a solid at room temperature, and melts when applied to skin. It is firmer than other types of lotions or butters, which causes the butter to be less heavy and oily on the skin and/or hair. Kokum butter can be used on the skin, lips, or hair.

Kokum butter aids aging and acne
Kokum butter is amazing for skin as it moisturizes and restores elasticity. The butter can be applied to dry or ashy areas, and as it moisturizes the skin it does not clog pores. Kokum butter is regenerative, and its restorative properties (a result of prevalent fatty acids and vitamin E) help significantly with scars and stretch marks. Skin cells are regenerated through kokum butter and given the proper elasticity to heal. These restorative properties also aid aging and acne. Kokum butter’s anti-inflammatory properties not only soothe acne, but also make this product a great option for those with sensitive skin.

Kokum butter hair benefits
When used on hair, kokum butter’s lightweight nature does not cause the hair to become too greasy or oily through usage. Its moisturizing properties work wonders on dry hair, while its regenerative aspects cause damaged hair to heal. When used on the scalp, kokum butter stimulates hair follicles and chemically affected areas, which in turn aids with healthy hair growth. Kokum butter can be applied directly to the hair or scalp.

Kokum butter is an incredible resource for users in search of a simple, lightweight and multi-use product for their skin and hair care; while the butter’s foundation of healthy vitamins and fatty acids provides a multitude of benefits.

baked rigatoni casserole dish

by Angela Propes

Early in my marriage I realized pretty quickly that I did not enjoy cooking and would need to find simple recipes that were good, but didn't require a lot of work. As I was checking out at the grocery store one day, I grabbed one of those impulse-buy booklets called Lawry's Weekday Gourmet. It had easy recipes that didn't require a lot of fussy ingredients, and I used it so much that over the years it completely fell apart but I made sure to save this recipe which was o...

a diversity of women's hands

by Angela Propes

If you’re like most people, you spend time caring for your skin. You probably spend a lot of time in cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing your face (and neck!) but it's very likely you don't give the same amount of care to your hands.
