Cocoa Butter - 14oz
Cocoa butter is one of the most stable fats known to man. When you couple that with its high antioxidant properties, it is great at preventing rancidity in all sorts of products. This makes it a great addition to any product with a high oil content. When you add all that to the fact that cocoa butter has amazing emollient properties and a very pleasant fragrance, it is no wonder that it has become popular in soaps and personal care products. These properties also make pure cocoa butter a popular ingredient in stretch mark creams.
Our Natural Deodorized Cocoa Butter is extracted from the cocoa bean, refined, deodorized and left in its natural color. This version is higher in natural antioxidants than the white, refined stuff because it does not go through the bleaching process. Because of the deodorization, it does not have the strong natural odor that natural cocoa butter is known for. This is great for soap making and personal care products where odor is an issue.
