Naturally beautiful with cocoa butter

  1. Cocoa butter is a natural fat extracted from the cocoa bean (yes, that of the chocolate!). Cocoa butter melts at body temperature and is therefore often used in lip balms and nourishing ointments. Cocoa butter contains a high content of vitamin E and is an anti-oxidant. It helps fade scars and its nourishing and soothing properties make it ideal for older and dry skin.

Skin

  1. Stretch marks and scars Coat your stretch marks or scars with cocoa butter twice a day. They will fade after a few weeks. Pregnant women should also apply twice a day to prevent stretch marks. Nourishing your skin makes it smoother and less likely to cause stretch marks to appear.

Dry legs

  1. If you suffer from dry or flaky legs, rub them with cocoa butter instead of body lotion or body cream.

Rough elbows

  1. You can grease rough elbows with a thick layer of cocoa butter.

Eczema and psoriasis

  1. Skin affected by eczema and / or psoriasis also benefits from smearing with cocoa butter. The cocoa butter helps prevent itching, a common consequence of these skin conditions.

Massage bar

  1. Heat 160gr cocoa butter and 10gr shea butter au bain-marie. Simultaneously heat 10ml almond oil, 10ml olive oil and 10ml jojoba oil au bain-marie in another jar. Once the cocoa and shea butter have melted and both mixes are at the same temperature, remove both pots from the heat. Gently stir the oils into the cocoa shea butter mixture. Add a scent and / or color if desired. Pour the mixture into one or more molds. You can pour the mixture into an ice cube tray to get small cubes that are good for single use. Let it cool down.

Add a scent and / or color if desired. Pour the mixture into an empty jar or an empty lipstick tube. Let cool.

Hands

Cuticle Cream

  1. Heat 15gr beeswax and 10gr cocoa butter au bain-marie. Heat 10ml almond oil and 5ml jojoba oil in a bain-marie in another container.
