    We cooperate with 500 farmers in 20 villages to collect Illipe nuts.
    Illipe butter (tengkawang fat) comes from the nuts of the endangered Shorea Stenoptera tree and is native to the forests of Borneo. Traditionally it is being used for therapeutic and cosmetic purposes for skin and hair.
    The Illipe seeds grow on tree and and the fat is enclosed in a thin shell. One time per 2/3 years the Illipe tree can be harvested, the nuts are collected from the ground and are dried in the sun until the shells are brittle to be separated from the fat.

    Illipe butter is known for its moisturizing properties and its ability to restore the elasticity and flexibility in the skin. It prevents the skin from drying which leads to the development of wrinkels. It reduces degeneration of the skin cells.
