Kpangnan Butter

Pentadesma butyracea

Our wildcrafted, unrefined Kpangnan butter (pronounced Pawnya) comes from the Pentadesma butyracea tree known as the African butter tree. These rare trees grow in the dense wet forests and riverbanks in West Africa. Kpangnan butter is processed from the nuts of the tree and is a slow, intense process. It has a smooth silky texture with an aroma similar to Cocoa and Shea butter mixed together.

$20.00 Option Not Available


This rare butter is hard with a silky texture and has a beautiful yellow color. Its mild aroma is slightly nutty and warm.  Kpangnan butter has a lovely warming effect on the skin and is even more moisturizing than shea butter. Studies have shown that kpangnan butter also contains high amounts of stigmasterol, a plant sterol that contains anti-inflammatory and pain relieving agents. It makes a wonderful addition to any of your favorite body butters!
