Introducing Moabi Butter - Baillonella Toxisperma Seed Oil: the natural ingredient that promises to revolutionize your hair and skin care routine

Derived from the tallest tree in the Congo Basin rainforest, Moabi Butter is known for its moisturizing and nourishing properties, making it the perfect addition to body butter, rich lotions, and face creams. The luxurious butter repairs and nourishes hair, while also strengthening the protective barrier of the skin.

Protecting Rainforest

Moabi Butter is produced sustainably. By using Moabi butter, you are not only benefiting from its amazing properties, but also contributing to the preservation of the tropical forest. This is achieved by supporting local communities who are incentivized to preserve parts of the forest and plant new Moabi trees. By supporting the demand for Moabi Butter, the cosmetic industry encourages local communities to preserve parts of the tropical forest. With just three years, the profits from Moabi Butter can exceed those made from sawn timber, making it a win-win for everyone involved.

A Logistical Challenge

Harvesting Moabi Butter is no easy feat, as the trees are few and far between and only bear fruit every two years. With less than one tree per hectare, harvesting requires traversing long distances through the rainforest, all while protecting the seeds from elephants. The harvest is made by pygmy communities. We then sort, crush, cold press, and filter the nuts to extract the precious butter. A traceable quality process, ensures that every product is of the highest quality. Only trees that are more than 50 years old bear fruit.

Despite the logistical challenges of harvesting, the result is worth it: a premium product that repairs hair and gives it a healthy shine while strengthening the protective barrier of the skin.

Discover the luxurious and nourishing benefits of Nilotica Shea Butter - Butyrospermum Parkii subsp. Niloticum

Shea butter, obtained from the nuts of the Vitellaria paradoxa tree, is native to West Africa. East African shea butter, on the other hand, is made from the nuts of the Vitellaria nilotica tree, which is native to the Nile River Valley in East Africa.

Traditional Production Methods

One of the main differences between the two types is the method by which the butter is extracted from the nuts : East African shea butter is made by traditional hand pressing, which preserves the natural nutrients and active ingredients in the butter, while in West African producing shea butter involves boiling the nuts to extract the butter. As a result, East African shea butter is often considered purer and higher quality than West African shea butter.

Smooth Consistency

Difference does not stop there. The soft, creamy consistency of Nilotica shea butter makes it a dream to apply, quickly absorbed into the skin leaving it soft, smooth and hydrated. With its light scent, Nilotica shea butter is perfect for those who prefer a subtle fragrance or have sensitive skin.
