This Cocoa Butter is a cream-colored fat extracted from cocoa beans from Ghana and Ivory Coast. Besides in chocolate it is used in cosmetics as an ingredient for soaps and a multitude of lotions and creams (body butters, shower gels, lip balms, lip sticks, etc.). It is often used due to its natural emollient properties and bringing stiffness to the end product.
Cocoa butter has good oxidative stability and has a good ratio of unsaponifiable matter and vitamin E, so when applied to skin it enhances skin elasticity. The butters melting point (close to the human body temperature) allows this ingredient to be a super emollient. The melt point is ranging from 31˚C-35˚C, so Cocoa Butter is a stiff solid at room temperature.
