Here is a bit about the Cocoa Butter…
The dark African Natural Cocoa Butter ™ you find at Skincare Care Naturals differs from the other cocoa butters we stock (organic steam deodorized and organic unrefined) in one major way, it hasn’t been through the fermentation/roasting process that is used to separate the cocao butter or cocoa powder from the bean.
It hasn’t been through the fermentation/roasting process that is used to separate the cocao butter or cocoa powder from the bean.
This leaves all the anti-oxidant (flavonoids) and natural fats, trace minerals and vitamins, intact, making African Natural as close to raw as you can get.
The fermentation and roasting are what create the chocolate taste and smell of processed cocoa butter.
Despite smelling and tasting different than processed cocoa butter, African Natural has all the same physical characteristics except for colour.
This butter smells like the cocoa we make hot cocoa from, which is part of the reason that it is such a popular ingredient. Dark Cocoa Butter is softer and slightly more greasy than other cocoa butters, but absorbs very quickly into the skin.
Use in skin care formulations requiring a thickening agent that will also create a smoothing & moisturizing effect on the skin.
Non-greasy and velvety smooth – it literally sinks right into your skin and hair used in small amounts. Delish!
Scent: Smells like cocoa to me. NOTE: The scent in this butter is not strong enough to scent most end products on its own.
Colour: Cocoa – Dark brown blackish colour.
Absorption: Absorbs easily into skin
Benefits: Great for use as a smoothing, moisturizing, thickening agent in soaps & other skin care formulations.
Gives a unique colour – excellent for summer time skin care products if you are wanting to make a dark brown product – or use just a little to control the depth of the final product colour.
I like to use cocoa butters in general for their powdery feel – this one has a totally decadent smoothness too it as well. Besides, it’s just really cool!
No cocoa butter collection is complete without dark cocoabutter. Helps with the prevention of stretch marks. Rich in Vitamin E & anti-oxidants.
Dark Cocoa Butter is great to use in your skin care formulations to take advantage of it’s moisturizing, softening, & smoothing effects. It makes a very unique marbly brown soap.
Nice if used in oils such as olive, jojoba or avocado. Or for a really yummy scent, try it with virgin coconut oil.
Dark Cocoa Butter is like any other cocoa butter – you can use it to moisturize your skin and help with the prevention of stretch marks during pregnancy or any time that rapid weight gain (or loss!) is predicted.
Great for use in recipes when a thicker or harder texture is desired. May also help to counteract against the sticky texture of certain fats, such as shea butter.
NOTE: It really is dark in colour and may stain clothing and skin. I did have some melt on a white tablecloth and it did come out when I hand scrubbed it with laundry detergent but it’s something to be aware of.
To see a few ways that I’ve used it for soap…
CROCK POT SOAP (great potential to make a lovely Tigers Eye gem soap)
Storage Recommendations Store Dark Cocoa Butter in a tightly sealed container, out of direct sunlight. Will have a shelf-life of up to 3 years under proper storage conditions.
