Ashanti Naturals 100% Pure Cocoa Butter is extracted from high quality, fresh cocoa beans. Cocoa beans are seeds from Theobroma cacao L. plant. To make cocoa butter, cocoa beans are first fermented then roasted. At this point, the cocoa “butter” (which isn’t actually the kind of butter made from any type of milk at all) is able to be separated from the rest of the beans, leaving behind solids that are used for other purposes like making cocoa powder.
The moisturizing abilities of cocoa butter are frequently recommended for prevention of stretch marks in pregnant women, treatment of chapped or burned skin and lips, and as a daily moisturizer to prevent dry, itchy skin. Cocoa butter's velvety texture, pleasant fragrance and emollient properties make it one of the most popular ingredients in skin care products.
