Illipe Body Butter
The Illipe Tree (Shorea Stenoptera) is a magnificent tree which grows in the forests of Borneo in the South Pacific. Illipe butter is light tan in color and has long-lasting moisturizing properties. It is most renowned for its skin softening quality. Illipe’s chemical composition closely resembles that of cocoa butter, yet with a higher melting point, making it ideal for use in bar soaps, lip balms, lipsticks and other stick type applications where a higher melting point is desired.
