Summary: Organic Illipe butter is made from the nuts of the Shorea stenoptera plant, native to Borneo, and has been used for centuries to moisturize and protect the skin and hair. The nuts are collected from the forest floor, dried, shelled and then pressed. The resulting butter is highly emollient and similar to shea butter. Illipe Butter is high in Vitamins A and E, which are known to soothe and hydrate the scalp and hair. They help stimulate the production of healthy sebum and shield the hair and scalp from external aggressors to keep the hair from drying out and breaking off.
