By economically enhancing this under-utilized tree, we are helping to safeguard this heritage of global biodiversity.
Local communities ethically collect the seeds.
Renala produces Rarabe Butter by cold pressing the seeds, followed by a fine filtration.
But above all the Rarabe butter is traditionally used as a cosmetic product for skin and hair both for its moisturizing and detangling qualities and its inimitable fragrance remaining nutmeg.
Its richness in unsaturated fatty acids gives it emollient soothing properties. It is particularly recommended for dry to very dry skin and hair.
Gadoleic is an unsaturated fatty acid close to human sebum; it has a high penetration capacity in the skin and hydrates it without greasing.
Rarabe butter contents 70 % of Myristic acid used in cosmetic for its cleansing, smoothing and protective powers.
