The illipe tree (Shorea stenoptera) is a magnificent tree that grows in the forests of Borneo in the South Pacific. Biochemica® Illipe Butter Ref is an ultra refined pale yellow oil and a large proportion of its triglycerides are symmetric, such that relatively sharp melting characteristics result. It has long-lasting moisturizing properties and is most renowned for its skin softening quality. Illipe butter’s chemical composition closely resembles that of cocoa butter, and it may be used in similar applications. Suggested use levels: balms: 5-100%; bar soaps: 4-8%; lotions and creams: 3-5%; hair conditioners: 2-5%.
