Unrefined Kpangnan Butter


Wild harvested

Kpangnan Butter is a rare butter that ranks in a league of its own. The butter is extracted from the seeds of the Pentadesma butyracea tree found deep in the tropics of Benin Republic. The tree itself is a rare find which makes this hard to find butter one of a kind. The butter is pure, uncut, and 100% organic. It is processed similar to shea butter but with a fewer processing steps. The butter has a dry like texture, it is not greasy but rubs on the skin like silk.

Oleic acid 47%

Linoleic acid 1%

Arachidic acid .02%


Saponification value, 192.5 mg KOH/g of oil

    Wow I'm shocked by how non greasy this butter is. It absorbs, and leaves a very light silky feeling on your skin. The scent is very raw and nutty with a hint of vegetable musk. It's not overpowering and dissipates quickly. Not unpleasant at all. The butter is very brittle but begins to melt upon contact, going from dry and chunky to very creamy within 30 seconds. It is a dark yellow color and it does color a final product . The more used the darker of a yellow tint. I'm really in love with this butter and I really love how it balances out the greasier butters. Seems very moisturizing, and leaves an almost silicone like film on the skin that is not greasy , not dry but just absolutely divine. The scent although not as yummy as some of the other butters, is pleasant , nutty , with a slight Shea butter latexy vegetable musk. I really love the feel alone. I used it on my legs after a shower straight up and it was wonderful. I think it'd be excellent in a lotion bar too, due to it holding up in warmer temperature, yet melting readily upon contact with the skin.
