Illipe Butter (also known as Shorea Stenoptera Butter or tengkawang fat) is made from the nuts of the endangered Shorea stenoptera tree, which only grows in the forests of Borneo and Sumatra. This product is certified by Ecocert according to the Fair for Life and organic (NOP and EOS) standards. Also available as non-organic / conventional. This product is Halal certified.
When ripe, these large nuts fall to the forest floor, where they are harvested by hand before being soaked in forest river stream to soften the hard shell. Once opened, the seeds are sun-dried for several days before being transported to our processing unit. Here, the seeds are cold-pressed in expeller presses and vacuum filtered to obtain a pure, raw product.
Illipe Butter is traditionally used to moisturize the skin, to heal sores and sunburn, and also as a flavor-enhancer for traditional dishes.
