Why cocoa butter is good for you

Whether you realise it or not, you’ve probably been enjoying cocoa butter for years; it’s the main ingredient in most chocolates. We understand completely if you need to pause and take a moment to think happy thoughts about the last piece of chocolate you ate.

Now that we have your attention again, did you realise that in addition to tantalising your taste buds, cocoa butter can also work wonders on your outside? Extracted from the cacao bean, this natural butter does such a great job of protecting, healing and moisturising that people have been using it for centuries.

Cocoa butter is a great source of vitamins and antioxidants. (“That’s nice”, you may be thinking, “But what does it actually mean?”)

This rich natural moisturiser will soften, protect and transform even the driest skin. It discourages wrinkles and reduces the appearance of fine lines, scars and stretch marks. Safe for use on even sensitive skin, it soothes rashes, eczema and dermatitis. What can you expect? Soft, glowing, healthier-looking skin and a more even skin tone.

When used as a pre-shampoo treatment or conditioner, cocoa butter will reduce dandruff and leave your hair feeling soft, and looking and smelling amazing, (it’s a gentle fragrance reminiscent of hot chocolate). It’s also great for beards!

If you’re struggling with dry, sore or chapped lips, cocoa butter makes for a luscious long-lasting lip balm. And, as a bonus, it tastes yummy.

In conclusion, cocoa butter offers a range of benefits for your skin, hair and lips. Go forth and moisturise, and watch it enhance your natural glow!
