WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
I was amazed when I first touched it. It has the perfect balmy texture and almost no scent. I use it as a base for a lot of products now.
For our company I am always looking for the next big new ingredient. When I met Caio I knew their Nilotica was an undiscovered gem and the perfect addition to our product range. Our customers now love that we give them access to such a rare ingredient.
I was long searching for the perfect ingredient to build my brand on. Something that both inspired me, changes the world for the better and is an effective and multipurpose cosmetics ingredient. Nilotica shea butter from Caio was the answer.
After a lot of searching I landed on Nilotica. Now it is a my secret ingredient that I use in almost all my products.
My whole family uses Nilotica for everything. In fact we use it soo much, a 500g jar lasts only about 4 weeks. And knowing it empowers women up North and that it is natural.. It just makes me happy :).
When customers ask me to recommend ingredients, Nilotica is almost always on the list. It is clean, pure and effective so it helps my clients create products that meet customer demands.
