Illipe butter, also known as Shorea butter, is a natural vegetable butter derived from the seeds of the Shorea stenoptera tree, which is native to Southeast Asia, particularly in countries like Malaysia and Indonesia. The tree produces fruits that contain seeds, and these seeds are the source of illipe butter.


Illipe butter is solid at room temperature and has a texture similar to cocoa butter. It is pale to yellowish in color and has a mild, pleasant odor. Like many other plant-based butters, illipe butter consists of a combination of fatty acids, primarily stearic and oleic acids.


Illipe butter is widely used in the cosmetic and skincare industry due to its excellent moisturizing properties. It is known for its ability to restore skin elasticity and suppleness, making it a popular ingredient in lotions, creams, balms, and soaps. Illipe butter is often chosen for its similarity to cocoa butter, especially in formulations where a more stable consistency is desired.


In addition to its skincare applications, illipe butter is sometimes used in hair care products. Its moisturizing properties can help nourish and condition the hair, making it more manageable and softer.


One of the notable characteristics of illipe butter is its high melting point, which means it remains solid at higher temperatures. This quality makes it beneficial in warm climates where products containing softer butters might melt too easily.


As with any cosmetic ingredient, it's advisable to check product labels if you have specific concerns about allergies or sensitivities, and perform a patch test if you are trying a new product containing illipe butter.
