If you're looking for vegan, natural skincare ingredients with transformative capabilities, Nilotica might just be it.
Boosting your skin with nutrients and vitamins to reveal a healthy and radiant complexion, it's made from cold-pressed Ugandan Nilotica nuts, wild-harvested from mature trees found along a remote stretch of the Nile River. The region's unique soil biome yields pure Nilotica with uncommonly high concentrations of nutrient-rich bioactive compounds to deeply moisturize and nourish skin, promote cell turnover, and accelerate healing.
If you haven't tried this superfood skincare savior yet, below are some reasons why we think you'll fall in love with Nilotica.
1. It's one-ingredient - free from parabens, silicones, sulfates, petro-chemicals, and animal byproducts
Compared to traditional West African Shea, which is hard when cold-pressed and requires the addition of emulsifiers to be spreadable, cold-pressed Nilotica is instantly a rich, super soft, nourishing whipped-effect butter that cocoons your skin with all the goodness it needs - sans additives.
2. It's 100% Organic, Vegan, Cruelty-free, Unrefined, Unscented, Gluten-free, and Raw
Leaping Bunny certified, Nilotica checks so many boxes, it makes even the pickiest beauty lover happy.
3. It's brimming with regenerative bioactive compounds
With high levels of Vitamin A, E + K, and catechins, the same powerful antioxidants as in green tea, Nilotica nourishes and protects your skin against visible signs of aging, damaging free radicals, and enhances cell regeneration. Like a green juice for your skin, it delivers nutrient-rich bioactive compounds to reveal a healthy and glowing complexion.
4. It's rich in essential fatty acids
Critical building blocks of healthy skin, fatty acids improve moisturization and accelerate healing. Nilotica contains 25% more essential fatty acids than traditional Shea, to renew the skin’s natural moisture barrier and heal any skin imperfections.
5. It's non-comedogenic
Naturally anti-bacterial and non-clogging, Nilotica is great for people with acne prone and sensitive skin.
6. It's packed with soothing Allantoin
Loaded with potent healing and soothing properties, Allantoin promotes cell turnover for smoother, brighter, more radiant skin.
7. It's safe for the whole family
Completely free from additives and irritating chemicals, Nilotica is safe for moms and babies - it’s even safe enough to eat! (So, even though we don’t recommend it, no need to panic if your dog accidentally goes to town on your Nilotica). It is soothing and nourishing for growing bellies and newborn skin.
8. It’s balancing
When your skin barrier is compromised, the natural sebum (oil) production in the skin can get out of balance. With the concentrated nourishment, deep calming properties, and non-comedogenic, close-to-skin features of Nilotica, it sends signals to your skin to naturally calibrate your oil production, to effectively restore the harmony in your skin.
9. It does a world of good
Beyond the positive effects on your own skin, Nilotica nuts are wild-harvested through women’s fair-trade cooperatives in Northern Uganda, to combat poverty and climate change through social impact. By paying our female producers 3x the local living wages, we enable them to lift themselves and their families out of poverty, and show the local communities the long-term financial benefits of preserving the Nilotica trees, protect the biodiversity and limit deforestation.
