Deodorised and bleached Illipe butter now available

Forestwise, supplier of sustainably sourced raw ingredients from Indonesian rainforests, now offers organic- and Fair for Life-certified, refined, bleached, and deodorised (RBD) Illipe butter.

The removal of colour and odour from Illipe butter allows it to be used with minimal effect on the fragrance and coluor of personal care and cosmetics formulations.

Theo Smits, Founder and CTO of Forestwise said: “Our line of RBD Illipe butter was created in response to manufacturers’ demand for Illipe butter that has little impact on the fragrance, colour, and most importantly, the formulation of products. With this product launch, we not only broaden the appeal of Illipe butter as an ingredient, but also further our mission to stop deforestation by developing a market for valuable rainforest products.”

Pressed from the nuts of the Shorea Stenoptera trees growing in the forests of Borneo, Illipe butter has been used for centuries by locals to moisturise skin and heal sores and sunburn. RBD Illipe butter holds the same properties as Forestwise’s original line of Illipe butter, namely, its moisturising efficacy and high melting point, that allows the butter to be applied in a wider range of formulations.

RBD Illipe butter contains only a negligible amount of free fatty acids, therefore, any possible chemical reactions with other ingredients in formulations are minimised. The low odour grade ingredient can also be used at higher concentration levels in body butters and other similar skincare products. Additionally, manufacturers that formulate with Forestwise’s RBD Illipe butter can include sustainability claims on their products, as the ingredient is certified USDA Organic, and Fair for Life and EU Organic by Ecocert.
