Kokum Butter // Healing Moisturizer
By Haina on August 15, 2012
We have all heard of Shea butter, right? The natural and vitamin-rich butter has been touted for it's easy absorption and ability to moisturize even the driest skin. It is a favorite in many skin care products, often listed as a feature ingredient. However, in the natural world there are a variety of oils and butters that posses vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants that improve the health of your skin. Though Shea butter, Argan Oil and Aloe Vera are key terms that signify quality and results, Kokum butter is a natural moisturizer that can truly transform your skin.
Kokum butter is similar to Cocoa butter and can often be used as a substitute of the butter. Kokum butter is high in fatty acids which aid in cell oxidation making it easier for nutrients to be absorbed into the skin. It is know to restore elasticity in the skin and is effective against the degeneration of skin cells. Most notably, Kokum butter is a highly healing skin moisturizer. The butter originates from India and works to soften dry, rough skin in addition to helping prevent wrinkles. It also helps to heal ulcerations on the skin. This butter is rough and dry in it's natural form, but melts on contact with the skin. This butter is best used as an additive to assist in the healing of rough, dry and cracked skin.
