Process: Minimally processed, unrefined hand made butter from cacao nuts
Botanical name: Theobroma cacao
Note: Our unrefined cocoa butter is hand made under the Fair Trade Act. It is sustainably harvested and certified organic by Ecocert.
Most cocoa butter on the market is heavily refined, producing a yellowish-whitish substance with no aroma.
Ours is a true unrefined product with a subtle aroma, color, texture, and intact healing properties.
Cocoa butter is often used as a skin moisturizer, due to its skin softening and lubricating nature. It is solid at room temperature, and can add a firmness to cosmetics, cremes, salves, and balms.
One of its really great uses is for making a belly rub, to help banish stretch marks when pregnant. It can either be melted and applied to the skin; or mixed with coconut oil or other oils and cooled to make a salve for this purpose.
It is a great treatment for sunburn, dry and damaged skin. It makes an excellent base for any creme or lotion for these purposes.
Expected shelf life: 3 years or longer, when stored at room temperature out of light.
Ingredients: Only 100% natural, certified organic, wild crafted cocoa butter.
