Where our pure unrefined Cocoa Butter comes from
Our Cocoa Butter is created from the fruit of Theobroma Cacao (the Cocao tree), it is a natural fat that is extracted from the Cacao bean from this tree. Some call it "Oil of Theobroma", most know it has Cocoa Butter. The trees that produce the high-quality fruits used in our butter grow in the mountain regions of Togo.

The butter is extracted from the seed kernels and yields a tan colored butter with pleasant cocoa (chocolate-like) odor. A relatively hard butter with steep melting curve ideal for body care products. May be used in a variety of cosmetic, toiletry and pharmaceutical applications to reduce cutaneous dryness and improve skin elasticity while imparting a natural color and cocoa odor, desirable in many of today's natural formulations. The "butter" is of significant commercial importance in foods, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetic applications. The Butter is solid at room temperature but melts readily on contact with the skin.

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.

Cocoa Butter is the natural fat extracted from the cacao bean.
The most desirable quality of Cocoa Butter is its stability as a fat-containing natural antioxidants that also preserve it well. Our Pure Cocoa Butter has a melting point just below average body temperature, which is what causes chocolate to remain solid at room temperature but melt in the mouth.

Cocoa Butter is also used in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products. In the pharmaceutical industry, Cocoa Butter is used in the making of suppositories and oral medications in capsule form. It has the ability to retain a molded shape while containing commonly used medicinal chemicals without unstable reactions.

Benefits and Uses of Cocoa Butter
Cocoa Butter is often found as an additive to cosmetics, shampoos and soaps, but it is also a natural emollient making it ideal for lotions, creams and lip balms. 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.

A trifle firmer at room temperature than our Shea Butter, we recommend melting and adding a bit of your favorite carrier oil to soften. Blend with a few drops of mandarin and Neroli for an absolutely wonderful "Belly Balm" for the mother to be or use it to help add body and thicken any balm, salve or cream.

It has a melting point of around 34 to 38 degrees Celsius (93 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit), rendering chocolate a solid at room temperature that readily melts once inside the mouth. It's melting points is just below body temperature, and it does change from a solid to a liquid quickly (ie. sharp melting point).

Our Cocoa Butter is a pure, crushed butter obtained from the cacao bean. It has a beautiful, rich aroma of dark chocolate. . Cocoa Butter is a soothing emollient that has been used for centuries in Africa for skin care. It has been traditionally used to heal and moisturize skin that has been exposed to the elements. Cocoa Butter helps reduce the formation of stretch marks during pregnancy by keeping the skin supple

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 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!
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 now ordering my 2nd shipment of the Cocoa Butter. The pellets are easy to use, the aroma is great and the quality is outstanding
Oh my word...the aroma is delicious. I can't wait to add with my shea butter for a body lotion. I love it!
Love it!!! Very happy with it. I have used it in so look many products. Will continue ordering it.
Just received my cocoa butter and absolutely love it the smell is amazing, I love that I dont have to add essential oils to cover the oil smell because this has a wonderful aroma. Easy to use and so silky smooth. Fast shipping too Ill def be ordering more!
This is a great product! The thin pieces are easy to work with and there's nothing better than the scent of cocoa butter.
I love the discs the Cocoa Butter comes in. It makes it so easy to use! I also really enjoy the texture and the scent in my lip balms. Thank you for an excellent product!
I love cocoa butter. It was one of the most moisturizing butters around.
You can use this butter in your shea butter mixes to add more moisturizing qualities of your butters and body lotions...We all know how well cocoa butter works to prevent or remove stretch marks before and after pregnacy. The only thing I can complain about this product is that it doesn't come in cream form...You have to melt it down in order to have a smooth consistency. Nevertheless, Love it!
I was a bit disappointed to see that the organic cocoa butter wafers are no longer available, but did want to say how much I loved having them within driving distance and how much of a valuable addition they are to my products. Any chance those will be returned to stock? Hint. Hint.
I absolutely looooove this butter!! It smells just like the finest chocolate and melts beautifully. Great for making lip balms!
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!
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 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.
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.
