5 Benefits of Using Cocoa Butter On Your Skin...

Cocoa butter can replenish the skin's moisture and create a barrier to protect your skin from moisture loss. Compared to other oils and creams, cocoa butter tends to be absorbed well without leaving skin greasy. However, cocoa butter definitely helps skin maintain its elasticity and tone. To make cocoa butter, the seeds of the cocoa bean are fermented in banana leaves. They are then dried roasted and pressed to release the luxurious butter from the beans. Cocoa butter is rich, and delicious and provides many benefits to your skin.

A Natural Moisturizer

Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids and hydrates the skin deeply, making it a wonderful addition to body moisturizers and lip balms. It contains oleic, palmitic, and stearic acids, all of which nourish the skin. It penetrates deep into your skin to offer intense hydration and a hint of delicious chocolate.

Helps with Skin Inflammation

Research suggests that cocoa butter can improve the skin, and it can have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. It is another way it helps your skin resist the ravages of time. Research shows that its polyphenols have several positive indicators for skin health, including improved skin elasticity and skin tone, better collagen retention/production, and better hydration. It may reduce the appearance of scars on the skin. It is the perfect choice for people who are suffering from skin inflammations, such as psoriasis, eczema, rashes, or other types of inflammation on the body.

Reduces the Signs of Aging Skin

Cocoa butter is also rich in natural plant compounds called phytochemicals. These substances may improve blood flow to the skin and slow skin aging by protecting against damage from the sun's harmful UV rays. By reducing the occurrence of oxidative stress, cocoa butter can help reduce the signs of aging, including those pesky wrinkles and age marks.

Helps With Stretch Marks

Pregnancy, weight gain or weight loss, steroid use, fast development… stretch marks happen to the majority of women (…and men are not exempt.) They are natural, and common, and should be embraced as part of your life journey. But there’s nothing wrong with wanting to lighten or prevent these tiger stripes. Cocoa can help. Cocoa butter helps stretch marks by seeping into the dermis (middle layer) and not just the epidermis (top layer), of the skin. Cocoa is simply the one butter that can achieve this. When the butter is absorbed into the dermis, it is able to retain even more moisture.

Smells Wonderful

Unrefined cocoa butter smells like high-quality chocolate. That delicious scent will come through in formulations if you're using cocoa butter somewhere around 10% or more.
