Cocoa butter (Theobroma cacao) is an ideal moisturizing product. It has been used as an ingredient in cosmetics, toiletries, ointments and more. It is known and valued for both its skin-nourishing properties and its strong cocoa aroma.
Aura Cacia Organic Cocoa Butter comes from a village in Peru that produces certified organic and Fair Trade cocoa butter.
What’s the difference between organic cocoa butter and conventional cocoa butter?
Organic oils differ from conventional oils in that the botanicals from which they are derived are grown according to the USDA’s Organic Standards. Our manufacturing facility and all of our organic oils have also been certified organic by the established third-party certifier, Quality Assurance International (QAI).
Cocoa butter is solid at room temperature and liquefies at around 95 degrees.
Cocoa butter is moisturizing and nourishing. It works particularly well in many skin care applications, especially on the hands, feet, and rough places like elbows and knees.
Cocoa butter blends well with many skincare oils and essential oils.
Known for being one of the more stable fats in skincare, it is a carrier that can last on the shelf longer than other lipids when stored properly.
Despite its many skin benefits, it’s generally not recommended for facial use on a regular or daily basis because it is not as absorbable as other oils.
