Cocoa Butter (100% Natural)

RatingRatingRatingRatingRating
Average Product Rating: 4.8 / 5 (Based on 69 Customer Reviews)



Cocoa Butter (also known as cacao butter) is a natural, cream colored vegetable fat extracted from cocoa beans during the process of separating the powder and liquor from the bean. Although Our Cocoa Butter is sourced from Ghana, due to lack of processing facilities in cooperatives of our source, the butter was cleaned and processed at a food processing facility in China. Our Cocoa Butter is carefully processed to maintain its purity and natural properties.

Common Uses: Cocoa Butter has a soft, sweet cocoa aroma and is one of the most stable fats known. It has been used to heal and moisturize skin that has been exposed to the elements. It also helps reduce the formation of stretch marks during pregnancy by keeping the skin supple. It makes a wonderful ingredient in lotion bars, lip balms, body butters and soaps. Cocoa Butter is one of the most stable fats known and it contains natural antioxidants that prevent rancidity. This butter is very hard in consistency.

Recommended Usage:
Lotions & Creams: 5 - 20 %
Balms: 5 – 100 %
Bar Soaps: 5 - 20 %
Hair Conditioners: 1 – 5 %

When adding butters to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm them until the texture can be incorporated into the final product. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle your melted butter to fully incorporate. For addition in soaps, the general rule of thumb is 1 tablespoon per pound. As with most raw materials, results may vary, so we strongly recommend small, lab scale batches prior to any commercial manufacturing.

Shelf Life: This butter should be stored in a cool dark place and has a shelf-life of 1 year when stored properly.

I LOVE this butter. As soon as I opened the container I thought I died and went to come kind of cholatey heaven! My daughter thinks her new body butter smells like "cupcakes" and a pregnant friend couldn't get enough of the richness of this product.

I absolutely love this butter and the smell that comes with it! It smells divine and delicious! Makes me want to eat it. It works beautifully in body butters without any added scents because it's so powerful on its own. Smells like lovely chocolate, and it's the best thing to use for pregnant women who can't use essential oils as it still smells amazing on its own.

Love the butter - NOT the scent. Ew! NO matter what I put in it, the chocolate seems to seep through. It's worse when I use EOs that go with coocoa (vanilla, for one) - like they ENHANCE the smell! Next time I will purchse unscented.

Definitely smells like chocolate! I'm finding it difficult to find scents that compliment it. I soppose peppermint would work well but I'm not a fan of peppermint. I used vanilla and my body butter does smell like a chocolate chip cookie. It works fabulous in my body butters and haven't had any issues working with it. I do like that it is broken into clumps. Next time I think I will try the refined, only because I want to play with different scents.

I really like that this butter comes in chunks, it makes it so easy to work with. It doesn't smell like I thought it would, but I think that's because I've never used the natural butter (only the stuff from the store with added fragrances). It does smell exactly like a hunk of nice dark chocolate. It's really nice stuff.

Smells just like chocolat with some great nutty undertones. Love it. It comes in small chunks - makes measuring for CP soap easy. Great product for many applications - but I think I'll order some deodorized for use in CP soaps with lighter EOs as the cocoa smell tends to overpower.

This is wonderful, quality cocoa butter. When I ordered it I expected it to smell like chocolate (I guess white chocolate) since I had never used pure cocoa butter before. Little did I know that it has a rich, deep dark cocoa scent. I took a piece of the pure butter and rubbed it in my palms to melt it, and it was wonderful! Quite a joy to use, just as it is! It will be fun to experament with. Plus the shipment was very fast. Thank you New Directions Aromatics for the great quality, and great priced cocoa butter, and for giving me the opportunity to get it.

This butter smells fantastic I made lip balms and whipped body butters with this and I'm a newbie at making products for myself. I used cocoa butter as the only butter in the lip balm mixed with orange oil for a chocolate orange flavour, I use it at night and sleep with it on and my lips are so soft in the morning. Don't use the orange in sunlight though just for reference.

The smell of chocolate is great, if you don't plan on scenting your blend with anything else. I found the smell very overpowering, even after leaving it open to the air for weeks. Blends well though, if you're only using a little bit the smell isn't bad. I had to adjust any recipes that included this product to include less of this so that the scents I was using weren't competing with the chocolate smell!

New Directions Aromatics Response:

Our Cocoa Butter is completely natural and unrefined. It has a rich, chocolately smell that is a reflection of the quality of the beans being used. In fact, we have many customers who use this natural emollient as a stand alone product.

To address the demand for Cocoa Butter without scent, we are awaiting our first shipment of deodorized Cocoa Butter.
