The kernels of Kokum seeds contain about 33 to 44 per cent of oil, which when kept at ambient temperatures has a tendency to remain in a solid state; oil in this form is commercially known as “Kokum butter”. Medicinal and antioxidant properties of Kokum butter are known to be useful in cosmetic applications. It can be diluted in base creams and other oils or applied neat. Kokum butter extracted from Kokum seed kernels is one of the most stable and hard vegetable butters available in the market. This butter is solid at room temperature, but melts immediately on contact with the skin. Its triglyceride composition is uniform, and consists of up to 80% of stearic-oleic-stearic (SOS) triglycerides.
