ESP Welcomes Jarchem to the Family!

ESP has started working with Jarchem, and innovative company based in the USA. We are excited to be able to promote their range of Shea Butter derivatives.

Jarchem™ is a leader in the trend toward natural ingredients. They helped start the phenomenal use of Shea Butter products and have a complete line of Jarplex™ and Jarxotic™ exotic butters, oils, and derivatives. Most notable is their Jarplex™ WD technology which allows you to add butters easily to water based systems.

They offer the highest quality and broadest selection of Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii) and Shea Butter derivative products for all your application needs. Shea butter is an excellent emollient for personal care applications. Its unique combination of triglycerides and minor lipid components makes it an ideal choice for functional cosmetic products. Its rich content of bio-active triterpene esters, such as lupeol and amyrin cinnamates, provides beneficial effects including anti-irritancy, anti-inflammatory, and enhanced UV-B protection.

The derivatives offer, not only the wonderful attributes of Shea Butter, but other excellent benefits.

Consider trying Jarplex™ SB-OE -Shea Butter Octyldodecyl Esters.

This is a proprietary ingredient which is a nature-based, moisturizing ester with improved oxidative stability compared to shea butter alone.

It is light, fast-spreading and penetrating with a less waxy feel without being tacky. It is great in protective products, such as winter products, cold weather applications, as well as sun care products. In sunscreen applications, it adds shine, lubricity, and gives a lighter, less greasy feel. It is an excellent dispersant for both organic and inorganic sunscreen actives.


Jarplex™ SB60 - Shea Butter Powder. It is an excellent additive to provide moisturization and emolliency to both body powders and powdered make-ups. Thanks to its high loading of shea butter and quantity of unsaponifiable matter, Jarplex™ SB60 provides skin protection against the following:

  • Weather
  • Sun
  • Aging

It is ideal to use in sun care and cosmetic skin care products, both in cream and liquid emulsions. It gives great flexibility in maximizing shea loading and functional skin benefits, while providing a softer feel.

Jarplex™ SB60’s unique product form delivers ~80% shea butter, achieved through a sophisticated concentrated powder form technology that uses super-critical carbon dioxide to gently process the shea butter at low temperature and in the absence of oxygen in order to maintain the raw material’s natural qualities.

Jarplex™ SB60 is well-suited for use in a wide range of cosmetic and dermatological applications.
