Illipe butter is made from the nuts of the endangered Shorea Stenoptera tree, which only grows in the forests of Borneo and Sumatra. This butter is traditionally used e.g. to heal sores and sunburn, moisturize the skin, and as a flavor enhancer for traditional dishes. Illipe butter has a higher melting point than cocoa or shea butter.
Benefits of using Illipe butter:
- It moisturizes and prevents drying of the skin.
- It is used in sunscreen products as it will protect our skin against sunburns.
- Heals mouth and sore ulcers
- It can help with dry and damaged hair.
Does Illipe butter clog pores?
Illipe butter may clog pores because it contains high levels of fatty acids like stearic acid, palmitic acid, and oleic acid.
