It would be an understatement to say that we are obsessed with Nilotica. We love the rich, luxurious texture of the Nilotica nut in its natural state. And we especially love how our skin is smoother, brighter, and more hydrated as a result of our continuous use of this covetable ingredient. As advocates of the magic of Nilotica, one of the questions we are frequently asked is…

“But, isn’t it just shea butter?”


There’s a world of a difference! It’s basically the difference between a tea bag of dried green tea and the rich, nutrient dense matcha latte. It’s the difference between listening to your favorite artist’s latest song through a scratchy YouTube video or hearing it live with all of the best acoustics.

And, while it is true that Nilotica is a subspecies of Shea there is a world of a difference between the two ingredients. Western Shea is heavily refined and processed making it incredibly difficult to rub onto the skin. Meanwhile, Nilotica is so luxurious in its natural state that your skin easily absorbs (and enjoys!) all of the positives without any negatives. We’re talking high levels of vitamins A and E as well as 25% more fatty acid content (an essential building block for healthy, plump skin) than Shea.

In its most natural and pure form, Nilotica is a single-ingredient skin savior that transforms and nourishes dry, damaged skin. Harvested seasonally from 20-year old trees from the lush Ugandan Nile, we exclusively formulate with USDA-ceritifed-organic Nilotica Reserve. We only impact sources the highest quality fruit butter for organic designation and proven efficacy to bring you skincare products that make a difference on the skin and beyond.

Once you try Nilotica, you’ll never go back. Don’t take our word for it. Try it for yourself!
