More information about Mafura Butter

This natural butter comes from the Mafura tree that grows primarily in the southern regions of Africa, predominantly Zimbabwe and Mozambique. The tree is also known as ‘forest mahogany,’ ‘Natal mahogany,’ ‘Cape mahogany,’ ‘thunder tree,’ ‘Christmas bells’ and ‘red ash.’ Mafura butter is derived from the tree’s seeds and comes in a cold-pressed form.

Natural Medicine

The seeds are edible and can be cooked or otherwise crushed to yield a milky juice used for drinking. Rich in fat and used in soaps, body and hair conditioner. The bark, seeds, leaves and roots are used medicinally by the Zulu people to treat many ailments such as stomach complaints, backache, and kidney problems.

It is abundant in critical fatty acids and is known to have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. These can help prevent and treat blemishes and other skin problems like athletes’ feet and cold sores. It makes for an excellent hair moisturiser or conditioner.

This butter nourishes, revitalises and conditions hair.

Due to its high oleic content, the butter is relatively stable and, like olive oil, enjoys a shelf life of two to three years.

The butter has a strong nutty aroma and blends easily with other plant butter or base oils.
