BEAUTY FOR HUMANITY
Our products contain USDA Certified Organic and Fair-Trade Ugandan “Nilotica” (NILE-ot-i-kah), a rare relative of shea that delivers superior hydrating and healing benefits to skin. We employ low-income women in the Nile River Valley to harvest, produce and export Nilotica, empowering them with fair-wage, dignified work.
Nourishing Body Oil
A luxurious body oil to protect and pamper your body and restore the skin's moisture barrier. Based on our popular LXMI 33 Face Oil formula, the body oil contains a nourishing blend of Tuhka oil, Moringa oil, Marula oil, and 33 other rare plant extracts to replenish your skin with critical vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids.
Massage into skin with gentle, loving strokes. For extra supple, soft feeling and to lock in additional hydration, apply to damp skin.
Sourced in partnership with environmental non-profit Conservation International, your purchase enables the protection of 235,000 hectares of pristine Amazon rainforest in Suriname.
Soothing Scalp Tonic
A reinvigorating scalp tincture with organic Moroccan Rose Water, Vanilla Bean Extract, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Extract, Kigelia Extract, and Malagasy Ravintsara.
The scalp is oftentimes neglected in skincare, but can easily become dry and irritated. Giving the scalp nourishment with wholesome ingredients specifically targeted for this sensitive area, the Soothing Scalp Tonic helps to calm irritation, nourish the scalp, and create a balanced foundation for healthy, vivacious hair - without weighing down the hair.
After washing your hair, apply a few droppers of tonic onto the scalp while hair is still damp. Gently massage in. Brush and style hair as usual.
Pure Nilotica Melt
Certified organic, cold-pressed Nilotica. That’s the only ingredient in this luxuriously rich balm-to-oil: the purest form of LXMI’s signature skin superfood. The whipped-effect formula melts instantly upon application, delivering essential fatty acids (+25% compared to traditional Shea), powerful antioxidants, soothing allantoin, and Vitamin A, E + K to hydrate, brighten, and protect skin—combating the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Use it as a deeply nourishing overnight mask, nutrient-dense moisturizer, as a healing salve for dry spots, hands, sunburns or scars, or throughout the day as needed. It is so safe you can eat it, making it great during pregnancy, for new parents and on newborn skin.
What is it:
The Melt is 100% plant-derived, vegan, organic, cruelty-free, gluten-free, unscented, unrefined, social impact-sourced, noncomedogenic (meaning it won't clog your pores), and dermatologist approved. It works wonders.
The hybrid formula starts as a creamy balm, MELTS on contact with skin, and transforms into a luxurious oil. The Melt is made from cold-pressed Ugandan Nilotica nuts, wild-harvested along a remote stretch of the Nile River. Related to the shea nut, Nilotica has a softer texture and superior nutritional density. The region’s unique soil biome yields pure Nilotica with uncommonly high concentrations of nutrient-rich bioactive compounds.
Social impact skincare:
Through our partnerships with fair-trade women’s cooperatives, your purchase gives dignified work to marginalized East African women, who receive more than 3x the living wages and are empowered to lift themselves and their families out of poverty. Furthermore, your purchase reduces local deforestation and helps combat climate change.
We recently switched our packaging from a jar to a tube. Why? The tube contains more product, has a smaller carbon footprint (lighter packaging takes less fuel to ship), and is more travel- and gym-friendly.
To reduce environmental waste, we are moving away from printed product brochures. For the digital product brochure for The Melt, please click here.
Nilotica is naturally rich in:
* VITAMIN A (a precursor to retinol), which supports natural collagen production and promotes cellular turnover for brighter, smoother skin.
* VITAMIN E, which helps to reduce inflammation, keep skin clear, blemish-free, and deeply moisturized without irritating.
* VITAMIN K, which helps to reduce puffiness and dark circles, boosts skin elasticity, and promotes wound healing.
* ANTIOXIDANTS, especially in the form of Catechins, which is the same antioxidants as in green tea. Great for free-radical defenses to fight fine lines, UV damage, and discoloration.
* ALLANTOIN to calm irritation and reduce redness.
* 25% more ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS compared to regular Shea butter - to calibrate and restore a compromised skin barrier, gently smooth texture and reveal glowing, healthy skin.
