Unrefined Cocoa Butter


Unrefined cocoa butter is a premium quality all natural butter, designed to be used as a base for creating your own beautiful face and skin cremes and products.  It originate in Brazil, where it is carefully hand made from hand-harvested cacao nuts.

It has a subtle but clearly chocolate aroma that adds to cremes and cosmetics, and soaps–or anything that you may choose to make with it.

Working With Cocoa Butter

Our certified organic cocoa butter has a thick texture.  It can be easily melted into liquid form, over  very low heat.  There is no reason to use high heat or cause the butter to boil.

Once heated to liquid form, many oils, cremes, butters etc. can be added and blended before it cools and hardens again.

It is helpful to dedicate a small inexpensive pan to the heating of this butter.  I like to simply wipe it out thoroughly with paper towels before it cools and dries, making the clean-up very easy.

Customizing Your Butter

You can add essential oils to your cocoa butter, for a specific purpose.

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.
