Made in Ghana, cocoa butter has long been used as a great natural moisturizer for dry chapped skin or in commercial and home made products to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy. It has a beautiful natural cocoa scent and helps improve the look of scars and fine lines, improves hyper pigmentation plus so much more. Cocoa butter is harder then shea and most other butters. You may need to melt it first using the double boiler method or you can microwave if you really have to but we recommend the double boiler method. Cocoa butter makes a great addition to do it yourself skin care recipes some of which will be shared.
