Illipe Butter, Shorea stenoptera, is an exotic butter obtained from the nuts of a magnificent tree that grows in the forests of Borneo. For centuries, the inhabitants of the island have been using his butter as a treatment for skin problems.
The grand tree can grow to 50 feet in height and produces 2 inch nuts with a very thin shell. The nuts, which contain about 50% fat, are collected from the forest floor and dried in the sun. The shells are separated and the inner nut is pressed to extract "butter."
Illipe butter is creamy white with a mild scent. It is similar in nature to cocoa butter, moisturizes and helps restore skin elasticity. Many believe it to be the most nourishing of the healing butters.
