Illipe Nut Butter – Refined, Fair Trade
INCI: Shorea Stenoptera
Extraction Method: Cold Pressed
Fair Trade Source: Borneo
This exotic butter is extracted from the fallen nuts of the Illipe Trees grown in the South Pacific region. The nuts are gathered, dried in the sun, and then pressed to extract the raw fat inside. Illipe Nut Butter has a similar chemical makeup as Cocoa Butter, but it is harder and more resistant to heat, imparted by its higher melting point. These characteristics make this white refined butter an ideal component in lip balms, bar soaps, and other end use products that require a high melting point. Usage rate in recipes: 3 – 100%
Price is per pound.
