    Why is our Cocoa Butter so wonderful for your skin? For one, it’s easily absorbed, and the antioxidants within the butter repair bodily tissues and protect the skin, your body’s largest organ, against free radicals, which can wreak havoc on your cells. Quite literally, Cocoa Butter improves the condition of your skin from the inside out.

    Cocoa Butter comes from the cacao bean, which is found inside the cocoa pod and grows on the cacao tree. Cocoa butter is created from pressing roasted, hulled, and milled cocoa nibs into natural liquor. This product is the solid form, it has a neutral taste that can be used in many recipes.

    It can be a nourishing addition to both sweet and savoury recipes. Perfect if you are looking for adding creaminess to beverages and desserts. It can be a sub for Coconut Butter or Oil and as a substitute for butter in vegan or dairy-free recipes. We also love getting to have more items for plant-based cooking and baking!

    Our Organic Cocoa Butter is made from fair-trade cocoa from Peru. We love the work that this fair trade program provides like monthly training programs for the farmers and financial support to the local communities. It also covers the costs of organic certification, logistical, and other miscellaneous expenses. We know that many small farmers cannot afford to be certified Organic so this makes us so happy to work with programs that offer such amazing support to the farming communities that make such a difference in the food industry! We want to help improve the lives of farmers and their communities, they are part of the future of food. Our team values taking care of the people who take care of our food which is so vital to our industry.

  • Directions

    How to make homemade whipped body butter recipe:

    Ingredients
    • 1/2 cup shea butter
    • 1/2 cup Cocoa Butter
    • 1/2 cup coconut oil
    • 1/2 cup light oil (like almond, jojoba, or olive)
    • Optional: 10-30 drops of essential oils of choice (optional – we love lavender!)

    Instructions
    1. In a pot, combine all ingredients except essential oils.
    2. Bring to medium heat and stir constantly until all ingredients are melted.
    3. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Add essential oils if using.
    4. Move to the fridge and let cool another hour or until starting to harden around the edges but still somewhat soft.
    5. Use a hand mixer to whip for 10 minutes until fluffy.
    6. Return to the fridge for 10-15 minutes to set.
    7. Store in a glass jar with a lid and use as you would regular lotion or body butter. If your home stays above 75 degrees, it may soften and need to be kept in the fridge, but it will stay whipped at a temperature lower than that.
    8. Keep some for yourself, and then give the rest! Enjoy!

  • Uses

    - Many women claim that the regular use of cocoa butter kept stretch marks at bay both during and after pregnancy.
    - You can use cocoa butter instead of butter, but you can't use it as a one-to-one swap as cocoa butter is 100% fat. Butter is normally 82% fat so to use about 80% of Cocoa Butter as a sub.
    - Cocoa Butter is perfect for making homemade creams and balms, you can make your own lip calm with cocoa butter, amazing during dry seasons.

  • Storage

    Due to the natural antioxidants in cocoa butter, it can remain shelf stable for 1.5 years if stored in a cool, dry place at room temperature or below.
