Illipe Butter has emerged i the natural hair market recently. However, here at Entwine, we have been using it for years within our product. Why? Because it works for your natural hair. it is a plant based-butter that provides your hair with the moisturisation that it needs. The benefits are greater than the butters that we're use to seeing marketed in other brands.
Where does it come from?
Illipe butter is a plant based fat from the nuts of the Shorea Stenoptera tree.
This tree is native to the island of Borneo [Southeast Asia] where the Dayak People dwell. [Source: www.ethicalbiotrade.org]
How is it manufactured?
As the nuts fall from the tree, they are taken to be washed in the streams. Then, they are left in the sun to dry. This magical butter is pressed from then nuts using their own machinery. The production is very similar to other butters which stem from nuts such as Shea, Grapeseed and Cupachu.
What are the benefits for our hair?
It solves our biggest hair problem which is usually lack of moisture, lack of hydration or dry hair. Once our hair is in this state, it makes it susceptible to various forms of damage such as breakage, knots, heat damaged, colour damage and so much more. Illipe butter is rich in fatty acids which is able to penetrate the hair shaft So the butter aids in retaining more moisture into your hair strands. So your hair will stay moisturised for longer for even up to 7 days.
2. Restores Elasticity
Once our hair is moisturised, other benefits start rolling in such as being more elastic. If our hair isn't moisturised, then it will not be able to stretch or return to it's normal state without breaking. Illipe butter also contains linoleic which is a natural emollient for the hair shaft. It will penetrate the hair shaft of ill in the gaps along the hair gap along the hair shaft. Thus, allowing to become stronger and healthier.
3. Repairs Damaged Hair
Illipe Butter is rich in powerful antioxidants that will nourish your hair from root to tip. if your hair is damaged from colour, heat, excessive styling, or environment, it helps. The antioxidants will prevent or reduce the formation of free radicals that are causing the hair to suffer from the inside out.
