Our organically crafted, extra virgin cocoa butter is expeller pressed from the roasted seeds of the cacao tree grown in the tropical forests of Ecuador. It is high quality, unrefined, and decadently aromatic. Our cocoa butter is not deodorized, so it still has its natural chocolate aroma that many people love. This yellowish-toned, hard butter softens at body temperature, making it a silky butter that is one of the absolute best butters for skin preparations. It adds a rich, creamy consistency to your lotions and creams.
Cocoa butter contains 5 IU of Vitamin E per ounce. Vitamin E, as many people know, is a powerful skin healer and antioxidant, making this butter a spectacular skin moisturizer. Cocoa butter also improves skin’s flexibility, helps with brittle nails, great for treating wrinkles around the eyes and mouth and prized for helping heal existing skin damage such as scars and stretch marks. Cocoa butter is gentle and great for sensitive skin.
Our cocoa butter should be stored in a cool, dark area. Doing so will give it a shelf life of approximately 3-4 years.
We have so many recipes that use cocoa butter, ranging from luscious body butters and lotions, to foot creams, lip balm, and much more. We are sure you will love them all as much as we do!
