Kombo butter is produced from the seeds of the tropical Pycnanthus angolensis tree, often referred to as African nutmeg. The Kombo tree mostly grows in Central and West Africa; it is known as “otie” by the Akans in Ghana. The kernel nutshell is surrounded with a red mace, with a similar taste to that of nutmeg but sweeter and more delicate. It has a fruity and earthy aroma. Kombo butter is not as oily as other skincare butter when applied; it quickly sinks into the skin. It may also appear slightly grainy in parts, but this melts away on skin contact.
Kombo butter is an incredible joint pain reliever. It is high in Anti-Rheumatics and Myristoleic acid, which help treat pain in the muscles and joints and gout.
It is an excellent ingredient for soaps, creams, and deodorants intended to neutralize body odor. Antioxidants that protect the skin from harsh environments abound in the butter. It is an excellent ingredient for formulas intended to fight acne and various skin conditions, revive dry skin, and soothe irritations. It reduces fine lines on the skin and protects it from premature aging.
