Cocoa Butter is the natural cream coloured vegetable fat extracted from cocoa beans during the process of separating the powder and liquor from the bean. Natural Cocoa Butter has a characteristic, sweet cocoa aroma, and is one of the most stable fats known. Some cocoa butters are deodorized and decoloured, making them less fragrant in cosmetic preparations, but the removing of the fragrance and colour is one more refining process.
It has been used to heal and moisturize skin that has been exposed to the elements. It also helps reduce the formation of stretch marks during pregnancy by keeping the skin supple. It makes a wonderful ingredient in lotion bars, lip balms, body butters and soaps. It contains natural antioxidants that prevent rancidity, and has an extremely long shelf life.
