Kokum butter is a naturally occurring butter. It is refined and white.
It is harder than shea butter but not as hard as cocoa butter.
It looks dry and crumbly and doesn't leave a greasy feel.
Kokum butter is used for its emollient and regenerative properties so is a good choice for damaged skin preparations.
It prevents drying of the skin, prevents development of wrinkles, softens and restores skin flexibility.
It can help to heal ulcers, cracked lips, hands and soles of the feet.
It regenerates skin cells and reduces degeneration of skin cells along with restoring elasticity.
Kokum butter is non-comodegenic (doesn't clog pores) and penetrates the skin quickly.
