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), 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.

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!

A deeply nourishing overnight treatment to hydrate dry, damaged skin and smooth visible imperfections with 100 percent organic Nilotica Reserve™ from the Nile Valley.
The ultra-hydrating facial balm the Melt is 100% organic, cold-pressed Nilotica. The buttery formula melts instantly upon application, delivering fatty acids, allantoin, and vitamin A, E & K to hydrate, brighten, and protect skin—even reversing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
LXMI sources Nilotica from the pristine Nile River Valley in Uganda, where local women are known to have glowing skin despite the dehydrating climate. The rich, alluvial soil of this region lend a unique terroir to our key ingredient (Nilotica), earning it the distinction of Nilotica Reserve™.

"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."
"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 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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"A straight-up skin care miracle."
"A sustainable and philanthropic dream cream."
