Our organically crafted Kukui Body Butter is derived from the cold pressing of the large nuts of the Aleurites moluccana or Kukui Tree, the official state tree of Hawaii, to render the light, virgin Kukui Nut Oil, also popularly referred to as Candlenut Oil. We then take this organic, nutrient-dense Kukui Nut Oil and combine it with our proprietary exotic butter base using our unique blending process to produce a truly luxurious, off-white body butter which quickly melts into the skin and hydrates from within.

Kukui Nut Butter is easily absorbed by the deepest layers of the skin, and forms a protective barrier on the skin that protects against environmental damage, providing tissues the essential elements that it needs. It is also used to heal skin conditions like sunburns, eczema, psoriasis, acne, scars, lesions and maturing skin. Kukui Nut Butter contains Vitamins A, C, and E, which are potent antioxidants known to protect the skin and prevent free-radical damage to the skin cells. Due to its rich essential fatty acids composition, Kukui Nut Butter can also be used as a treatment for an itchy scalp or dandruff, leaving hair looking healthy and moisturized. This butter exhibits excellent spreadability on the skin, making it ideal as a massage butter or carrier for treatment products.


Unlike other commercially available butters, our range of organic body butters are all 100% natural and have NOT been blended with cheap fillers like Hydrogenated Vegetable Fat or Mineral Oil and additives like water, alcohol, silicon, colouring agents, synthetic fragrance, parabens and preservatives. For all our exotic infused butters, we use a highly emollient, luxuriously rich butter base made up of natural, organic ingredients including Butyrospermum parkii (Shea) Butter, Theobroma cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter and virgin Cocos nucifera (Coconut) Oil.

Suggested Use Levels: Creams, Lotions, Balms, Make-up Foundations, Bar Soaps and Hair Conditioners. Use from 3% to 100% pure (as a butter-like balm).

Packaging: Our butters are packaged in airtight plastic containers (jars or pails) and not the retail packaging. We are a wholesale supplier, and most of our customers use our butters in their product formulations. Butters can sometimes melt during transit, and these containers help ensure that the butters don't leak. Also to avoid excessive, and repeated exposure to artificial heat, we avoid heating them to pour them into jars or pails for shipping as it can be damaging to the quality of the butters. All of our butters are scraped, shaved or scooped, as needed to package them into jars or pails, without applying heat. Because of this practice, butters will always be packed into a container that might be a little bigger than the size of the melted butter. We believe that spending a little more for the package is better than jeopardizing the integrity, and quality, of the butter. If the butter is received in a warmed condition, due to transit, the container may appear to be less than full. This is normal, and expected, as they are packaged by weight, not by volume.

Recommended Storage: This butter should be stored in cool temperatures (below 25u00b0C) away from light and moisture in an air-tight container. The butter will become liquid above ambient temperatures (e.g. 36u00b0C), but will re-solidify upon cooling without affecting functionality. This butter has a shelf-life of 24 months when stored properly.

This is a cosmetic raw material and is meant for external use only in cosmetic formulations. As with all of our materials, it should not be taken internally.
