Products with this ingredient

llipe butter has been used for centuries to nourish and restore skin's vitality and elasticity. Containing oleic, palmitic, stearic and linoleic acid, illipe butter is similar in composition to shea butter but has a higher melting point, making it perfect for use in facial skin care products.



The illipe trees is native to Malaysia, typically found in Borneo. Regarded by some as the richest of all butters, illipe is made from the nuts of the Shorea stenoptera, a species of the Dipterocarpaceae plant family. Lush uses nuts from Borneo, which are collected from the forest floor and dried in the sun until the shells are brittle enough to be separated; the nuts, which are 50 per cent fat, are then pressed to extract this nourishing emollient.
