Love Your Skin Back with Kokum Butter
What is kokum butter?
Kokum butter comes from the fruit of the Garcinia tree, which is native to India. Kokum butter has been used around the world for centuries, and is celebrated for its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. It is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamin E, and will not clog pores, as it is non-comedogenic.
Why do we feature kokum butter in our Violets Are Blue skincare lines?
Like many naturally sourced butters, kokum butter is ultra moisturizing for skin. We love using kokum butter in our eco-lux skincare because it is fragrance-free, emollient, easily absorbed and safe for use on sensitive damaged skin. Its nurturing, comforting properties are perfect for those looking to treat their skin with the love it deserves.
You can find kokum butter in our award-winning Body Cream with Shea Butter and Argan oil.
