Also known as 'Golden Shea'. THIS IS A FAIR TRADE PRODUCT.
INCI: Pentadesma butyracea Seed Oil
Form: Hard, yellow butter.
Usage Rates: 1-100%
This bright yellow butter is extracted from the seeds of the Pentadesma butyracea tree, which grows in forests along the rivers of Central Togo. It has a fatty acid profile similar to that of Shea butter but is harder at room temperature and has different unsaponifiable constituents. Kpangnan butter has a very unique composition, with Stigmasterol being the main sterol.
Stigmasterol has been used in the manufacture of synthetic progesterone and extracts have been found to be effective anti-inflammatory agents.
Kpangnan butter has a distinctive odour and a smooth dry feel, which carries through into the finished product. It can be used in soaps, lotions and creams.
