Garcinia indica is a tree from India whose edible fruit is used in various dishes as a seasoning. It has many common names, including Bhirand, Kokam, and Red Mango (though it is not a Mango). There are numerous uses for other parts of the plant, including dyes and preservatives from the rind, and lip balm and other uses for oil from the seeds. Kokum is a relatively hard butter. It is best used within cosmetic formulations along with other ingredients to make it more pliable when you are developing exotic body care products. Kokum butter will have a dry and cracked appearance which is quite normal.
