SKIN SUPERFOOD FROM THE NILE
NILE RIVER VALLEY
Nilotica Reserve™ is harvested seasonally from 20-year old trees, only at the source of the Nile River. We exclusively formulate with Ugandan “Nilotica,” a rare form of soft, delicately scented, luxurious Shea Butter that is underutilized in the cosmetic market, despite its superiority – particularly in regards to skin penetration and vitamin content. The East African shea export market has not matured at the same rate as that of West Africa, for reasons such as scarcity of trees, civil unrest, and high transportation costs.
Nilotica Reserve is certified organic, making it not only safe for your skin, but also safe-enough-to-eat.
SCIENCE BEHIND NILOTICA
The building blocks of healthy cell membranes, help produce the skin's natural oil barrier.
Keeps skin hydrated, plumper, and younger looking.
Encourages skin to shed dead cells and grow new ones
Promotes healthy cell development and prevents dull skin, moisturizes, protects, and heals.
Thickens and stimulates the dermis (where collagen, elastin and blood vessels are).
Increases blood flow to the surface of the skin, helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines.
COLD-PRESSED INTO A SILKY BALM
Whereas most botanicals are cold-pressed into oils, Nilotica is pressed into a soft butter. Occasionally you'll find microcrystals in the Pure Nilotica Melt that dissolve on skin, which prove cold-pressing in temperate Uganda v. refrigerated lab conditions. Like imperfections in raw silk, they reflect the unprocessed (v. machine- or chemically-altered) nature of Nilotica.
