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.


Squeeze out a small amount into your hands. Massage the Melt onto dry spots, focusing on face, lips and around the undereye area. For an especially nourishing treatment, apply a thin layer all over face as an overnight mask. You can even use it as an all-natural highlighter on your collarbone and décolletage, or light lip balm.

The copper-tipped applicator has two sides: one for scooping out the product (black, flat end) so you can distribute the right amount of product every time. The copper ball tip is for distributing the product across your face and décolletage, you'll find it provides a cooling and refreshing effect that stimulates the skin as you massage. We'd recommend specifically using it in the undereye area, to help reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness!

Absolutely! None of our products (nor our ingredients) are tested on animals and our ingredients are all vegan.

Yes it is! This formula contains 0% water, which allows it to be stable after opening. Just keep your product away from the sink, and you shoudn't experience any contamination issues.

We recently switched our packaging from a jar to a tube, which further helps to maintain optimum performance. The tube also contains more product, has a smaller carbon footprint (lighter packaging takes less fuel to ship), and is more travel- and gym-friendly. 

Thank your for your question!

Yes! Nilotica is related to shea butter and is classified as non-comedogenic (meaning it won't clog pores). It can actually help balance skin and clear up blemish-prone skin. Hope this helps! Thank you for your question.

Absolutely, Pure Nilotica Melt is one of the safest skincare treatments to use during pregnancy. It's even so clean you can eat it, and we definitely recommend our delicious chocolate truffle recipe that includes raw Nilotica! Hope you are having a relatively easy pregnancy. Hang in there. xo

I truly love LXMI products. I use the melt night and day, on face and body. I have recently begun to use the lip melt as well. These are wonderful, pure products with a social conscience that really deliver.

"After discovering Nilotica, a rare ingredient sourced from the Nile River by beauty brand LXMI, I'm reconsidering my entire skincare philosophy. I'm just gonna say it: There is such a thing as a "miracle balm." And this is it. "

"Created to combat even the harshest weather conditions, this melt-on-your-skin moisturizer starts as a solid balm and turns into an oil when you rub it in. Filled with fatty acids, it keeps your complexion soft and plump all year long."

"Say hello to the ultimate skin savior! The luxurious balm-to-oil works to deeply nourish parched winter skin while also helping to smooth visible imperfections. The best part is it can be used anywhere on the body, including on chapped lips and dry elbows."

"The cold-pressed balm inside (which morphs into an oil once rubbed on the skin) is made from Nilotica Reserve (pronounced: ni-lot-ee-kah), a rare type of shea butter harvested in Uganda."

"A sustainable and philanthropic dream cream. LXMI Pure Nilotica Melt is the kind of multipurpose product to keep on hand all winter. A sumptuous hydrating balm that disappears into skin leaving behind a much-desired, glowing finish. The single-ingredient salve is great around tired eyes, as a natural highlighter and perfect for chapped lips."

"A straight-up skin care miracle."

"Nilotica Reserve delivers up to 25% more essential fatty acids than traditional shea butter. It's perfect as an under-makeup base or a hydrating night cream."

"Nilotica is the purest nut-based oil you can find, harvested exclusively from the 20-year-old trees that line the Nile River in an industrially untouched part of Africa. As a result, the nut maintains its purity and nutrients like essential fatty acids, vitamin A, and allantoin, an enzyme which promotes healthy cell development."

"The greatest skincare tips ever."

"Skin care favorite for fall. Not only will it hydrate your skin..."
