Kokum Butter Unrefined

Choose Size

Our Kokum butter is unrefined so has a slight off-white colour  compared to refined which is white.  Please note it has a natural characteristic aroma decreasing the % in your formulation will make this less noticible.

Kokum is a relatively hard butter that does not apply well as a “stand alone” application. It is most suitable for being blended with other ingredients to make it more pliable when you are developing exquisite body care products.

Please note that Kokum butter by nature is a dry and flaky butter. This dry and flaky appearance causes many to think that the butter has gone bad, but this is a natural characteristic of Kokum butter.
