Cocoa butter

Give in to the irresistible aroma of cocoa butter which leaves your skin velvety smooth and smelling utterly divine. The slightly yellowish butter is a fat obtained by pressing ground, roasted cocoa beans from the Theobroma cacao tree. It is rich in antioxidants which prevent it from going rancid, giving it up to several years of shelf life. This makes cocoa butter a fantastic ingredient to use in cosmetics as well as in the food industry.

Cosmetic products with cocoa butter should definitely be part of your routine. Not only are they rich in fatty acids and provide quick relief to dry and tight skin – they also contain phytosterols for quick skin regeneration and vitamin E which prevents premature skin ageing.
