Pure Nilotica Melt

100% 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 buttery formula melts instantly upon application, delivering fatty acids, allantoin, and vitamin A to hydrate, brighten, and protect skin—even reversing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Use it as an ultra-rich overnight mask, as a healing salve for sunburns or scars, or during the day as needed.

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.

HOW TO MELT

Stir the Melt with the flat, black end of our cooling Copper Wand until it’s soft and spreadable. Take a small scoop and use the round, copper end of the wand to massage product into 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.

50 Nilotica Nuts go into a single jar of Melt.

Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • What is the metal knob accessory that comes in the box?

    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!

  • Is LXMI cruelty free?

    None of our products (nor our ingredients) are tested on animals. We thoroughly test our products on ourselves before putting them through rigorous clinical testing as well. 

  • Is the ingredient stable in the jar/tube since it is 100% organic?

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

  • Is this product non comedogenic?

    Yes! Nilotica is related to shea butter, which is classified as non-comedogenic. We've actually heard reports of Nilotica Reserve helping clear up blemish-prone skin. Hope this helps! Thank you for your question.

  • Can I use this if I'm pregnant?

    Absolutely, Pure Nilotica Melt is one of the safest skincare treatments to use during pregnancy. It's such a clean formula that we've eaten it in a chocolate truffle recipe without any concerns at all! Hope you are having a relatively easy pregnancy. Hang in there. xo

What else do you need to know?

LXMI sources Nilotica Reserve from low-income women in the Nile Valley, paying them three times local wages for each harvest, as a means of alleviating global poverty. This product is vegan, 100 percent naturally derived, a certified organic ingredient, free of gluten, cruelty-free, noncomedogenic, and dermatologist approved.

"Discovering Nilotica Reserve first changed my skin, then my life. This miraculous skin superfood inspired me to found LXMI. Today we go above and beyond to source the best quality Nilotica with unique terroir, for a noticeable difference on skin. Plus, I insist we source from women who desperately need opportunities to lift themselves up."—Leila Janah, Founder

"For an overnight treatment, I recommend applying this Melt in a pattern like the LXMI seal. This technique ensures that you cover all the right contours, and the facial massage stimulates skin for a natural glow. "—Leila Janah, Founder

How do I use the Pure Nilotica Melt?

- Scoop with spatula and massage into skin.
- Use as an overnight facial mask, even around the eye orbitals, and throughout the day as needed.
- Wait one to two minutes for optimal absorption.
- If you feel a few microscopic crystals within your natural formula, they are normal and will dissolve on skin. Like imperfections in raw silk, these crystals reflect the unprocessed, natural state of LXMI's Nilotica Reserve™.

Precautions

Store in a cool, dry place, as direct heat can change product consistency (but efficacy will not be altered).

Should I use the melt under my makeup?

LXMI Pure Nilotica Melt is more of a buttery texture, so use under makeup only if your skin is thirsty and will absorb the product within minutes, or if you are looking to achieve more of a glowy (v. matte) effect.

*A trick of the trade for Melt: try mixing our formula with some of your drier makeup pigments, such as matte lip colors, lip pigments, and even eye shadows. Melt will make these products creamy and easy to apply, while preserving the shades you love.

Where should I use the melt?

We recommend using it where needed (dry cheeks, around the eye orbitals, and on the lips are our favorite places), or all over the face before bed as a leave-on nighttime mask. You won't believe how juicy and plump your complexion seems upon waking in the morning.
