Description
Pronounced “pan-ya,” this rare, pale yellow butter has a firm, powdery texture at room temperature, and melts easily on contact. Kpangnan butter’s aroma is mild, nutty, and smoky (similar to a blend of cocoa and shea butter). More deeply moisturizing than shea butter, kpangnan also has a warming effect, and its high stigmasterol content makes it popular for joint and muscle butters. Our wildcrafted, unrefined kpangnan butter is produced in a time-consuming process from trees in the dense forests and riverbanks of West Africa.

Kpangnan Butter

Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to actually use it yet. I bought it to use in place of Shea Butter as I'm not a fan. It seems harder than Shea Butter but without the grainy texture. So I'm looking forward to trying it, especially in lip balms.

Kpangnan Butter

I have tried Kpangnan Butter and Shea and prefer Kpangnan’s silky and dry finish. It has a barely detectable odor that goes away shortly after application and does not interfere with the essential oil aromas that are dropped into it when it is used as a carrier

Kpangnan Butter

I love Kpangnan Butter. I mix in other Essential Oils and trauma Oil to alleviate my knee pain. It is creamy and mixes well. It has such beneficial properties for pain.

Wow!

This is pricey, yes, but for what I bought it for, it's very reasonable. I have had a nervous habit of kind of pulling in my lower lip and chewing on it for years. Most of the time, I have been unaware I've even been doing it. It has left me with constantly chapped, peeling and bleeding lips and nothing has worked to keep them from getting worse. I've tried it all, or so I thought: organic and chemical-based balms, sticks and oils. Nothing worked. I'm concentrating on not doing this anymore and thought I'd try the Kpangnan butter as a last resort, as it's getting cold and dry where I live. The butter is very hard and I just scrape a tiny, tiny bit off the butter and apply right to my lips and rub in. It lasts and lasts and miracles of miracles, my lips are soft this morning! I also ordered several other items in order to make my own natural shampoo mix and I have to say I am very impressed with the quality of everything in my order. I'll be back soon, thanks so much!

Give this a try!

I really enjoyed using this in place of shea butter in a body butter blend.
