Mmm chocolate. We all love it! Well this bad boy is right from the home of it! Cocoa butter is derived from the seeds of the cocoa fruit which is usually better known as where chocolate originates from.
The hardest of all the butters, cocoa butter is a great alternative to beeswax with the added bonus of nutritional, emollient and moisturising properties. It’s neutral in smell and melts at body temperature so it’s ideal for making lip balms, ointments and creams. It’s also great for soaps and lotions due to its soothing and skin softening qualities.
