Cocoa butter comes from the cacao bean which is found inside the cocoa pod that grows on the cacao tree. The cocoa pod is a large gourd-shaped fruit and inside are found 30 to 40 cocoa seeds.How to choose the best raw cocoa butter?
It is best to find raw cocoa butter that is organic and unrefined. This means that the beans have been touched as little as possible by humans, so that they retain their inherently excellent qualities. In fact, when cocoa beans have been harvested, they can simply be put into sacks and placed in a warm room.What does cocoa butter do for your skin?
When cocoa butter “melts” into your skin, it is not only incredibly moisturizing, but also provides that nice barrier needed for protection. Cocoa butter has an unusually high amount of antioxidants, which means that it helps grab up free radicals that could otherwise inflict damage to your skin.Can you be allergic to cocoa butter?
In fact, it is quite rare to have an allergy to cocoa butter. Cocoa butter melts at skin temperature, but is rather hard at lower temperatures. Put a piece of butter in your palm and it will soon start melting. This is why it makes a great additive to products like lip balm. It helps keep it thick, but melts and moisturizes deeply upon touch.
