This organic certified cocoa butter is a cream-colored fat, extracted from cocoa beans. Besides in chocolate, it is also used in cosmetics as an ingredient for soap and in a variety of lotions and creams (body butter, shower gels, lip balm, lipstick, etc.). It is often used because of its natural emollient properties and bringing stiffness to the end product.
Cocoa butter has a good oxidative stability, and is naturally rich in antioxidants and vitamin E. Due to the good ratio of unsaponifiable matter it enhances skin elasticity. The melting point ranges from 31˚C - 35˚C, so cocoa butter is stiff solid at room temperature. It is known for its moisture-regulating properties. All this combined makes this product super emollient.
