This Cocoa butter is 100% pure and has been deodourised.
Cocoa butter, also called cacao butter, is the cream-colored fat extracted from cacao seeds (cocoa beans). You can use cocoa butter straight up or mixed with other ingredients to give yourself glowing soft and smoother skin.
Cocoa butter has been called the ultimate moisturizer, and has been used to keep skin soft and supple for centuries. It is one of the most stable, highly concentrated natural fats known, and melts at body temperature so that it is readily absorbed into the skin. Cocoa butter is often recommended for treatment of skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.
Pregnant women have long used to cocoa butter formulations to prevent and treat stretch marks. When applied topically, it creates a barrier between sensitive skin and the environment and also helps retain moisture. In addition, cocoa butter contains cocoa mass polyphenol (CMP), a substance that inhibits the production of the immuno globulin IgE. IgE is known to aggravate symptoms of both dermatitis and asthma.
