We Love Cocoa Butter!

Cocoa Butter is one of the natural ingredients that helps make up the base of all our Aloha Alchemy products! Get to know this luxurious butter better.

Here are some of the reasons why we love cocoa butter:
“Cocoa butter is derived from the fat that surrounds the chocolate bean. Chocolate, made from the bean, is considered ‘food of the gods.’ The cocoa beans are pressed to yield the butter. Cocoa is a creamy, waxy, fatty substance that is solid at room temperature but melts at very low heat and when it comes in contact with the skin. It is used in lotions, creams, ointments, and soaps for dry skin, as it is very softening, emollient, and lubricating. It helps eliminate scars, is excellent for cracked dry skin and mature skin, and has some natural sun protective properties. Cocoa butter is very stable and not prone to going rancid. A bonus is that it smells like chocolate!” ~Brigitte Mars, Beauty by Nature
