Cocoa Butter

Also known as theobroma oil, cocoa butter is a pale-yellow, edible vegetable fat extracted from the cacao bean. It’s used to make chocolate as well as various beauty products. Cocoa butter has a distinct cocoa flavour and aroma.

💫BENEFITS FOR SKIN

✨Cocoa butter is high in antioxidants, which help fight off free radicals. Free radicals are skin stressers and accelerate aging.

✨It is widely claimed to help reduce the visibility of stretch marks and scars. There are no guarantees, but many women claim regular use of cocoa butter was what kept pregnancy stretch marks away. We’re not entirely convinced anything can keep them away, but you’ll find many anti-stretch mark cocoa butter products in the market.

✨Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids and moisturizes the skin deeply.

✨Regular use of cocoa butter might help reduce skin irritations such as eczema and dermatitis.

💫BENEFITS FOR HAIR

✨Nourishes hair and the scalp with vitamins and minerals thereby helping to keep both healthier for longer. This nourishing feature makes oil great for treating dry, damaged and frizzy hair in hot oil treatments and for massaging the scalp.

✨Has moisture sealing properties thereby keeping hair softer for longer. However, all liquid oils (except coconut oil, which is actually solid anyway and jojoba , which is actually a wax and not an oil) can seal hair better than butters because they have a higher proportion of polyunsaturated fats – the type that cannot penetrate the hair cuticle.

✨Penetrates the hair cuticle to fortify hair from the inside; they do this better than oils because they have a higher amount of saturated fats and monounsaturated fats.

✨Help to boost hair’s shine but not as well as liquid oils.

Cocoa butter is usually solid at room temperature and this may make it tedious to use. However, it smells delicious and really is a great moisturizer. You can use it on it’s own, mix it with your other oils or butters or make yourself a delicious whipped butter that will keep your hair and your skin wonderfully moisturized.
