Dhupa Butter

Posted on


INCI name: Valeria indica




Also known as Malabar Tallow, Dhupa butter is cold-pressed from the dried seeds of the Valeria indica tree, which grows in India. It is high in stearic, palmitic, oleic, linoleic, linolenic and arachidic acids and has a long shelf life.


Dhupa butter is emollient, softening, UV-protective and aids spreadability when added to creams, balms and lotions.


Add Dhupa butter to creams and lotions at percentages of up to 20%; balms and lip balms up to 100%; hair treatment packs and conditioners up to 12% and soap formulations up to 12%. It can be used as a cocoa butter substitute in skin and hair care formulations.
