I am use to tempering butters so this was an easy thing to do before using it. I like using Kokum Butter as a replacement for Cocoa Butter. I like using Kokum Butter along with Mango Butter in the emulsified body butters I make. I even like to use it in emulsified sugar scrubs. Great butter at a great price!
Blossom offers premium quality Kokum Butter in bulk. It is off-white color solid with neutral odor for versatile application.
Kokum Butter comes from the seeds of the kokim tree (Garcinia Indica). Kokum mostly grow in the western region of India which is known as the Konkan region. Kokum Butter has unique composition of triglycerides that consists of up to 80% of stearic-oleic-stearic (SOS) triglycerides which makes this butter one of the most stable vegetable butters in the market. It can be applied to the skin as pure butter. It is used as thickener for lotions and body butters. It is also used as emollient in soaps, cosmetics, and toiletries. The antioxidants in the butter helps in the regeneration of cells and regular use helps prevent wrinkles and heal and repair skin. Kokum Butter melts slightly at skin temperatures and is ideal for lipsticks and lip-balm.
Natural butters have tendency to turn in to grainy texture. This does NOT mean the butter has gone bad or turn rancid. When a butter is heated the fatty acids separate from one another. Then if it cools slowly, these fractions stay separate causing the butter to go grainy. (This happens during shipping in warm weather). Gently melt the butter, and then rapid cooling or freezing may help to reduce/remove graininess.
