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.
Pure Nilotica Melt Annual Subscription
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), soothing allantoin, and Vitamin A, E + K to hydrate, brighten, and protect skin—even reversing 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 = great for moms and babies, on growing bellies and newborn skin.
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.
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.
