General Cocoa Butter information

Cocoa Butter has been use in natural, high quality cosmetics for centuries. Cocoa Butter is particularly praised for its antioxidant properties. These properties are due to the tocopherols as well as certain polyphenol. The polyphenol CMP has been found to suppress active oxygen, a factor in cancer. CMP was also found to inhibit the production of an immuno globulin that exacerbates topical dermatitis. Therefore, it retains all its natural healing and preventative properties. In addition, it has a lovely chocolate scent that will carry through in your creams and lotions.

The moisturizing abilities of Cocoa Butter are frequently recommended for prevention of stretch marks in pregnant women, treatment of chapped skin and lips, and as a daily moisturizer to prevent dry, itchy skin. The fact that is a natural preservative and has a faintly pleasant aroma further lends benefits to its cosmetic uses.

Though many believe that Cocoa Butter has the ability to reduce or diminish the appearance of scars, this is a theory that is yet unproven. It does, however, promote elasticity in the skin and will aid in the healing of chapped skin if it is used regularly. Cocoa Butter is often mistakenly used by people to expedite a suntan and while it will enhance a natural tan, it does not have a sun protection factor (SPF). To prevent the harmful effects of the sun, use a suntan lotion with an SPF of at least 15 that contains cocoa butter.

What is cocoa butter?

Cocoa butter, also known as theobroma oil, is a natural edible fat derived from the cocoa bean, the seed of the cocoa tree (Theobroma cacao). It plays a vital role in the manufacture of chocolate, giving it its smooth texture, rich flavor, and melt-in-your-mouth quality.

Cocoa butter has a creamy yellow appearance and a characteristic chocolate scent. Due to its stable fat composition, it has a relatively high melting point, close to human body temperature, which is why chocolate melts in the mouth.

Beyond chocolate production, cocoa butter is also extensively used in the cosmetic industry. It is known for its moisturizing properties and is a common ingredient in skincare products like lotions, creams, lip balms, and soaps. The natural antioxidants found in cocoa butter give it a longer shelf life and also contribute to its skin-healing properties.

Its moisturizing benefits, coupled with its pleasant aroma, make it a preferred choice for many skin and hair care products. Additionally, it has been claimed to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, although scientific evidence on this particular benefit is inconclusive.

Where does cocoa butter come from?

Origin of Cocoa Butter

The Cocoa Tree

Cocoa butter is derived from the cocoa bean, which is the seed of the Theobroma cacao tree. The cocoa tree is native to the deep tropical regions of Central and South America.

Extraction Process

After harvesting the cocoa pods from the cocoa tree, the beans are taken out and fermented for several days. They are then dried, roasted, and pressed. Through the pressing process, the fat (cocoa butter) is separated from the cocoa solids, resulting in pure cocoa butter.

Edibility of Cocoa Butter

Natural Origin

Cocoa butter is a natural fat extracted from the cocoa bean, which is harvested from the Theobroma cacao tree.

Please note, Soapgoods does not sell items for use in food. Our products are for external use only.

Culinary Uses

Yes, cocoa butter is edible and is a key ingredient in chocolate-making. It provides the creamy, melt-in-your-mouth texture of chocolate. Apart from chocolates, it's also used in various baking and cooking recipes, as well as in confectionery items, due to its rich flavor and smooth texture.


While cocoa butter is edible, it's essential to ensure you're consuming food-grade cocoa butter and not products meant for cosmetic use. Food-grade cocoa butter is processed to be safe for consumption, while cosmetic-grade cocoa butter might contain additives not meant to be ingested.

How is cocoa butter made?

Harvesting the Cocoa Pods

The production of cocoa butter begins with the harvesting of cocoa pods. These large, colorful fruits are handpicked from the Theobroma cacao tree when they are ripe.


Once harvested, the cocoa beans are removed from the pods and placed in shallow containers, like baskets or wooden boxes, to ferment. Fermentation is a crucial step as it helps in developing the beans' flavor profile.


After fermentation, the cocoa beans are spread out under the sun to dry. This process reduces the moisture content, preparing them for the next stages of production.


The dried cocoa beans are roasted at a chocolate factory. Roasting helps in bringing out the deep chocolate flavor and also aids in separating the outer shell from the inner nib.

Separation of Nibs and Shells

Once roasted, the beans are cracked open, and the nibs (the edible part of the bean) are separated from the outer shell.

Pressing the Nibs

The separated nibs are then ground down to form a liquid known as chocolate liquor or cocoa mass. When this liquor is pressed under high pressure, it splits into two components: cocoa solids (which can be processed further to make cocoa powder) and cocoa butter.


The extracted cocoa butter may undergo further refinement, depending on its intended use, to remove any impurities or to modify its texture and aroma.

What are the skincare benefits of cocoa butter?

Skincare Benefits of Cocoa Butter


Cocoa butter is a superb moisturizer, known for its hydrating effects. It contains natural fats that lock in moisture, alleviating dry skin and improving skin elasticity.


Cocoa butter is rich in antioxidants, particularly vitamin E and polyphenols. These compounds help combat oxidative stress and neutralize harmful free radicals on the skin, reducing signs of aging.

Reduction of Scars and Marks

Regular application of cocoa butter can help in fading scars, stretch marks, and other skin discolorations. Its moisturizing properties help in the skin's natural healing process, promoting the regeneration of skin cells.

Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Thanks to certain active compounds present in cocoa butter, it has anti-inflammatory effects that can help soothe irritated skin and reduce inflammation, making it beneficial for conditions like eczema and dermatitis.

Protective Barrier

Cocoa butter forms a protective barrier on the skin, preventing harmful environmental factors, such as UV rays and pollutants, from causing damage. This barrier also retains moisture, preventing skin dehydration.

Improved Skin Texture

With its emollient properties, cocoa butter makes the skin feel soft, smooth, and rejuvenated. It can help improve the overall texture and tone of the skin when used regularly.

Can I use cocoa butter on my face?

Using Cocoa Butter on the Face

Deep Moisturization

Cocoa butter is an excellent moisturizer due to its high fat content. When applied to the face, it can provide deep hydration, especially beneficial for those with dry skin.

Potential for Clogged Pores

While cocoa butter is incredibly nourishing, those with oily or acne-prone skin should be cautious. Due to its thick consistency, there's a possibility it might clog pores. It's recommended to do a patch test first or consult with a dermatologist.

Rich in Antioxidants

Cocoa butter contains natural antioxidants like vitamin E, which can help protect the skin from damage by free radicals and environmental pollutants.

Soothing Properties

For individuals with sensitive skin or conditions like eczema, cocoa butter can offer a soothing effect, reducing inflammation and redness.

For best results, it's recommended to use cocoa butter on the face at night, allowing the skin to absorb its benefits while sleeping. Ensure the product is pure and free from additives or fragrances that might irritate the skin.

Is cocoa butter comedogenic (does it clog pores)?

Cocoa Butter and Comedogenic Properties

What Does Comedogenic Mean?

Comedogenic refers to substances that have a tendency to clog pores, potentially leading to blackheads, whiteheads, or acne breakouts.

Is Cocoa Butter Comedogenic?

Yes, cocoa butter is considered comedogenic. Due to its thick consistency and high fat content, it has the potential to clog pores, especially in those with oily or acne-prone skin.

Recommendations for Use

If you have acne-prone or oily skin, it's advisable to use cocoa butter with caution on the face. Consider doing a patch test before full application or consult a dermatologist for personalized advice.

Benefits Despite Being Comedogenic

While cocoa butter might be comedogenic, it still offers numerous skincare benefits, including deep moisturization and antioxidant properties. It's about finding the right balance and understanding your skin's needs.

Can cocoa butter help with scars and stretch marks?

Cocoa Butter for Scars and Stretch Marks

Healing Properties of Cocoa Butter

Cocoa butter is rich in natural plant compounds called phytochemicals. These substances can improve blood flow to the skin and slow skin aging by protecting against damage from the sun's UV rays. Moreover, they help to smooth scars, wrinkles, and marks on the skin.

Effectiveness on Scars

While cocoa butter possesses moisturizing and nourishing properties that can improve skin elasticity and tone, there's limited scientific evidence to conclusively prove its effectiveness in scar reduction. However, many people report seeing improvement in the appearance of scars after consistent use.

Impact on Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are tears in the skin caused by rapid growth or stretching, often related to pregnancy, weight gain, or growth spurts during puberty. Cocoa butter is a popular remedy for stretch marks. Its deeply moisturizing properties help to hydrate the skin, making stretch marks less apparent. However, as with scars, empirical evidence regarding its effectiveness is limited, but anecdotal evidence suggests potential benefits.

Usage Recommendations

For the best results, it's recommended to apply cocoa butter daily to affected areas. Massaging the butter onto the skin can also help improve circulation, potentially aiding in scar and stretch mark reduction.

Can Cocoa Butter Be Used in Haircare?

Benefits for Hair

Cocoa butter is an excellent moisturizer due to its fat content. When applied to the hair, it can provide hydration, reduce hair breakage, and improve its manageability.

Application Methods

To use cocoa butter for hair, it can be melted down and mixed with other oils or ingredients to form a hair mask. Alternatively, it's also found in many commercial hair products such as conditioners, hair balms, and hair treatments. Due to its thick consistency, it's best applied to damp hair and left on for a period, either as an overnight treatment or washed out after a few hours.


While cocoa butter offers many benefits for hair, it's essential to note that due to its richness, it might weigh down fine hair types. It's advisable to start with a small amount and adjust as needed.

Does cocoa butter contain caffeine?

Cocoa Butter's Composition

Cocoa butter is the fat extracted from cocoa beans. While cocoa beans do contain caffeine, the amount present in the cocoa butter itself is negligible to none. This is because caffeine is water-soluble and does not integrate well into the fat content during the extraction process. Therefore, if you're concerned about caffeine, using cocoa butter shouldn't be an issue.

Caffeine in Other Cocoa Products

It's worth noting that other products derived from cocoa beans, like cocoa powder or chocolate, do contain caffeine. However, this caffeine content doesn't translate to the fatty cocoa butter.

Is Cocoa Butter Safe for Pregnant or Breastfeeding Women?


Cocoa butter is commonly recommended as a topical moisturizer for pregnant women to help prevent or reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

However, it's always a good idea for pregnant women to consult with their healthcare professional before introducing any new product into their skincare routine.


For breastfeeding mothers, cocoa butter is safe when used as a skin moisturizer. However, if using it on the nipples, it's crucial to clean the area thoroughly before breastfeeding to ensure that the baby doesn't ingest any residue, even though cocoa butter is technically edible. As with pregnancy, always consult with a healthcare professional or pediatrician when considering new products during breastfeeding.

How do I store cocoa butter to ensure its longevity?

Storing Cocoa Butter for Longevity

Optimal Storage Conditions

To ensure the longevity of cocoa butter, store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Like many natural butters and oils, cocoa butter can melt when exposed to high temperatures.

Sealing and Container

It's best to keep cocoa butter in an airtight container to prevent contamination and the introduction of moisture. This also helps to preserve its natural aroma and properties.

Shelf Life

When stored correctly, cocoa butter can have a shelf life of up to 2 to 5 years. However, always check for any changes in texture, color, or smell as these could indicate that the butter is no longer good to use.


While not strictly necessary, refrigerating cocoa butter can extend its shelf life and keep it in a more solid state, especially in warmer climates.

Benefits of Cocoa Butter for Skin


Cocoa butter is a natural emollient, which means it provides a barrier that helps retain and restore the moisture in the skin. Its rich fat content deeply hydrates the skin, preventing dryness and leaving the skin feeling soft and supple.


Beyond moisturization, cocoa butter forms a protective barrier on the skin's surface.

Is cocoa butter good for cooking and baking?

Cocoa Butter in Cooking and Baking


Cocoa butter is a stable fat that has a mild and pleasant chocolate flavor, making it suitable for various cooking applications. It can be used in sautés and frying due to its high smoke point. Moreover, its smooth texture can enhance the creaminess of various dishes.

This product is amazing! It has a strong chocolate smell and the small discs make it easier to measure. No more wasted product or messy cleanup. The discs melted easily and evenly for my body butter recipe. The scent is great if you don't mind the smell of chocolate, but if you want to use a fragrance oil, I would suggest purchasing refined. I will definitely purchase a larger size next time.
I am in love with these little cocoa butter disks!, the smell is intoxicating, and they are super easy to use and measure. I have bought this butter 3 times and will be ordering much more!
I like the natural fragrance of vanilla and chocolate the cocoa butter gives off. So its nice for people who cant use fragrance lotions. I like to add peppermint oil for a mint chocolate scent.

I love this cocoa butter. The waffles were easy and the smellhad me craving chocolate.You have a customer for life. It's also very easy touse abd scent.
I have never used cocoa butter before purchasing this, but I have to say I was not impressed. I assumed there would be a bit of a chocolate-y smell, but this was SO overpowering, I couldn't even scent it. In my opinion it was sickeningly sweet. Also, after melted, it took HOURS to harden. Really weird. This is not Soapgoods' fault, I guess I just don't care for cocoa butter at all, and won't be using it in my products.
I love this butter...It makes my skin feel like silk...I use it to remove make-up, to seal the ends of my hair, a skin moisterizer and looking to find more uses for this product...I also mixed this with my Aloe butter and the two together packs a powerful punch...A little goes a long way...Again, I love this product and will be buying this again...But this time I will purchase more that 1 pound...Can't get enough!
Really nice to add to any body products, I cant do with out this product is amazing. It smells really good on its one but hard to sent over unless its a food comfort smell.
I love cocoa butter and when I saw the opportunity to buy in bulk, I jumped. I've used natural cocoa butter for years, just as it is. All I did was melt a little of it down and smooth it on my skin. It keeps my skin so soft and moisturized that I never use anything else. I will definitely keep buying my butters from this site now that I know that different types are sold here. Thank you Soapgoods, you are the best.
Thank you so much for such an awesome product at such a great price! I haven't found a better price for such quality product anywhere else!! It has worked so well in my healing salve:) Thanks again soapgoods!
The Cocoa butter packs the most intoxicating chocolate smell ever. This is the perfect complement to my homemade vanilla body creams. I will be repurchasing!
This Cocoa Butter smells so nice, just like Chocolate. It melts nicely also. I have repurchased.
I purchased this cocoa butter and it is awsome! It smells so good and added just the right touch to my cream lotion :-) Soap goods site is soooo informational too! I look forward to my next purchase order.
Yum! This butter smells sooo good, melts very nicely, and is a beautiful natural color. I just made the best hand lotion with this product -- next up, lip balm!
I love this cocoa butter. It is so fragrant and is a wonderful addition to my soapmaking needs.
