What is it?
Kokum butter comes from the fruit of the Garcinia tree which is grown along the Western coast of India. It’s sometimes referred to as the wild or red mangosteen tree. In order to make Kokum butter, Kokum oil is extracted from the fruit kernels of the tree and processed into a vegetable butter, similar to cocoa or shea butter. It’s rich in antioxidants and vitamin E, making it a perfect ingredient in skincare.
