I’m thrilled to tell everyone I recently began offering LXMI’s Pure Nilotica Melt – an ultra-hydrating, balm-to-oil made from one ingredient: 100% organic Nilotica Reserve™. Pure Nilotica Melt is plant-derived, vegan, organic, cruelty-free, gluten-free, unscented, noncomedogenic, and dermatologist approved. I call it a wonder cream!
Nilotica Reserve™ is harvested from Nilotica trees that grow wild at the source of the Nile River in Uganda. Nilotica nuts are cold-pressed to preserve their special properties.
The texture naturally starts as a luxuriously rich butter that melts quickly when smoothed onto the skin. This deeply nourishing skin protectant delivers vitamins A and E, powerful antioxidants, allantoin, and 25% more essential fatty acids compared to traditional Shea – to hydrate, brighten and plump skin.
Through partnerships with local fair-trade cooperatives, the female producers of Nilotica Reserve™ receive more than 3x the region’s average living wages, which helps the women lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
The clinical results of The Pure Nilotica Melt are remarkable. 100% of people who tested it saw immediately brighter, more hydrated skin; 96% of users saw an immediate improvement in visible fine lines and wrinkles; and, 86% said their skin still felt more hydrated skin, even 24 hours.
The Melt has over a dozen uses, including…
- Eye Cream, moisturizer, lip treatment, overnight face mask
- Makeup remover
- Hand, cuticle and foot cream
- Salve for sunburns, minor cuts and scars
- Makeup primer
- Hair treatment and mask
It’s even safe enough to eat! Nilotica Reserve™ is USDA certified organic, and it contains high levels of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and essential fatty acids. You can use it to bake and cook, or in smoothies. There’s a delicious Chocolate Bark recipe on their website!
