Skin is a complex fusion of various fatty acids. We discussed various natural oils, their composition, and micronutrients in the previous blog post. You can read it here. Different plants have skin-friendly fatty acids, and using them helps you keep your skin youthful.

What is plant-based butter?

Plant-based butter is a fat and protein component of natural fruit. Natural butter is solid to semi-solid at room temperature due to low water content.

How is butter made?

Plant-based butter is extracted from the seed or fruit. Raw, unrefined process of extraction produces butter with the top-quality skin-friendly fat and retains natural micronutrients. Refined and ultra-refined butter removes biological color particles, several fatty acids and thus appears softer and white. But, it also removes skin-friendly fatty acids and micronutrients.
