Allanblackia Butter

Organic seed oil

INCI: Allanblackia Floribunda


Allanblackia oilseed is a unique product in Sigma Oil Seeds' range. Unlike other butters such as shea and palm, Allanblackia has a high melting point (42 °C) and so is ideal for inclusion in solid products such as lip balms or body butters. 

Allanblackia offers long-lasting moisturising and skin softening properties, especially useful for targeting cracked dry skin as it is able to deeply penetrate the stratum corneum and restore and protect the skin barrier.

It is also a great choice for hair products as it hydrates the scalp and helps stimulate the production of sebum whilst also shielding the hair from external pollutants.


    • Solid at room temperature (melting point of 42 °C)

    • High levels of stearic acid and oleic acids present

    • Naturally moisturising

    • Organic


    • Great alternative to palm and shea butter due to its high melting point.

    • Strong emollient offering excellent moisturisation.

    • Low protein content and an excellent alternative to cocoa butter - conditioning without feeling greasy.

Typical Applications

    • Solid cosmetics: lip balms and lip sticks

    • Skin Care: moisturising bars and butters, body lotion, hand creams, soap bars
