Although there is no such thing as a perfect ingredient, Cacao Butter is pretty close to it.
Cocoa butter, also called theobroma oil, is a pale-yellow, edible fat extracted from the cocoa bean. It is used to make chocolate and has an amazing cocoa aroma.
It is used in cosmetics, soaps, and body care products because it wonderfully moisturizes and is a great natural ingredient for the skin. Cacao is solid at room temperature, easy to melt on the skin with a sweet creamy scent.
5 advantages of Cacao Butter you probably didn’t know about this amazing oil of nature.
1. Can help in the treatment of eczema and dermatitis
The Cocoa Mass polyphenol (CMP) contained in Cocoa Butter can inhibit the production of antibodies that aggravate certain diseases.
2. Strengthens the immune system
The Swiss love the consumption of chocolate and as CMPs can help the immune system fight certain diseases it could help explain why the Swiss have one the highest life expectancies in the world.
3. Pregnant Stretch Marks Avoidance
Cacao Butter has an extraordinary moisturizing effect great for women during pregnancy and after childbirth. Although it does not completely remove stretch marks, if you use it regularly as the tummy stretches and retracts back it can help prevent them. It does this by assisting in the elasticity of the skin in these more extreme extractions and contractions.
4. Rejuvenates your skin
Cacao butter is also rich in antioxidants, which helps fight free radicals (free radicals destroy healthy skin cells and age the skin). Cacao Butter also provides some protection against the sun’s rays. (important – it does not replace the use of sunscreens!)
5. Full of nutrients
It is rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and trace elements, especially vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, and E.
