Hey everyone! I’m back with some more tips and tricks on how to hack most kinds of skin and hair issues you may be dealing with on the daily, real skin issues that most of us have to battle with like cracked lips and feet, acne, scarring, stretch marks and dull tired skin. I want to tell you about another amazing butter known as “Kokum butter”.
Now I’m talking about the super skin healing, nourishing, soothing, and moisturizing powers all found in one butter. I know it's common knowledge when we talk about other well known wonder butters (shea butter, I'm looking at you....) but this one is truly amazing.
Kokum trees which are formally known as Garcinia indica — are usually cultivated in the tropical regions of India. The fruit and seeds of the kokum tree are used in many different ways for example they are used in cooking, beauty products and even for medicinal purposes. The butter comes from the Kokum tree (Garcinia indica; also known as butter tree, wild mangosteen or red mangosteen).
Kokum butter is non-greasy and gets easily absorbed into the skin once it is applied. It is often used as a substitute for cocoa butter due to its triglyceride composition which is an important energy source in forming much of the fat stored by the body. Kokum butter has the power to soften and soothe the skin.
Kokum butter is good for every part of the body. If you’re experiencing hair loss as a result of chemical treatments in your hair, Kokum butter can help rejuvenate your hair follicles and promote hair growth. By oxygenating your scalp, it helps provide the cells in your scalp with nutrients necessary for healthy hair growth. Therefore serving to prevent hair loss so that hair can grow as strong and beautiful as possible. Its moisturizing properties prevent hair damage and breakage without making your hair feel too oily. Amazing right?
And your skin, oh yes! It absolutely does wonders for your skin. Its powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties helps in dealing with acne, stretch marks, scarring, wrinkles, age spots and so many other inflammatory skin conditions.
This butter is super light and does not clog your skin therefore, it is highly non-comedogenic. Unlike cocoa butter, you can slather this butter on your face without the of fear of breaking out. It also aids in the breathability of your skin, and mixes very well with other oils and butters in different skincare formulations.
Due to the awesome effect of this butter on the skin, it will also boost your mood and uplift you. Did I say it has skin regenerating properties? It sure does! Imagine a world where cracked heels or lips, dull skin and such do not exist anymore. This butter will take care of that and more.
