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 moisturiser, 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 mums 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.
Nilotica is naturally rich in:
- Vitamins: A, E and K.
- Antioxidants: Catechins (the same antioxidants as in green tea).
- Allantoin to soothe skin.
- 25% more essential fatty acids compared to regular Shea butter.
