Benefits of Cocoa Butter to Your Skin

If you're not familiar with cocoa butter, the first thought you might have when hearing the words might be some decadent chocolate dessert, but think again! It has many benefits to your skin.

The Bath Bomb Cocoa ButterWhat is Cocoa Butter: Cocoa butter comes from the cacao bean which is found inside the cocoa pod that grows on from the cacao tree. (pronounced ca-cow) The cocoa pod (pictured here) is a large gourd-shaped fruit an inside, 30 to 40 cocoa seeds are found. These seeds must be fermented in banana leaves, dried, roasted and pressed, releasing the vegetable fat from the beans, which we know as cocoa butter.

Benefits to Skin

  • Antioxidants: Cocoa butter is high in antioxidants, which help fight off free radicals. Free radicals are causes of skin stressers and signs of aging.
  • Stretch Mark Reducer: Cocoa butter is widely noted to help reduce stretch marks. There are no guarantees, but it seems like the secret tip is shared with every pregnant woman in the world. And many women claimed regular use of cocoa butter was what kept their stretch marks away. We're not entire convinced anything can keep them away, but you'll find many anti-stretch mark cocoa butter products to choose from. People also say it has helped heal scars.
  • Deep Hydration: Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids and hydrates the skin deeply.
  • Sensitive Skin Healer: Again, no guarantees, but cocoa butter has been noted to help skin irritations such as eczema and dermatitis.
