Benefits of Cocoa Butter

Why don't you come in from the cold and wrap yourself in a warm blanket of chocolate? Cocoa butter is the same ingredient used in rich, decadent chocolate and is winter's best kept secret! Cocoa butter is actually the fat derived from the cacao bean. To make cocoa butter, the seeds of the cacao bean are fermented in banana leaves. They are then dried, roasted and pressed to release the luxurious butter from the beans.

Cocoa Butter is rich, delicious, and provides many benefits to our skin.  

Moisturize: Cocoa butter is a rich moisturizer than penetrates deep into our skin to offer intense hydration and a hint of delicious chocolate. Yum! It's abundant in antioxidants that protect our skin from environmental, internal, and external forces that can cause irritation or damage to the skin.

Skin Inflammation: Cocoa butter contains a blend of healthy fatty acids and antioxidants, making it the perfect choice for people who are suffering from skin inflammations, such as psoriasis, eczema, rashes, or other types on inflammation on the body. Research has also shown that cocoa butter may reduce the appearance of scars on the skin and help to boost overall skin health.

Anti-Aging: The antioxidants found in cocoa butter also help to neutralize free radicals throughout the body, particularly in the skin. By reducing the occurrence of oxidative stress, cocoa butter can help reduce the signs of aging, including those pesky wrinkles and age marks.

Stretch Marks: Cocoa butter is widely recognized to help reduce stretch marks that often come with pregnancy or fluctuations in weight. Nope, we're not kidding.
