The Cacao Tree, Theobroma cacao is a small to mid-size tropical evergreen tree with large, beautiful glossy leaves. The tree produces pod-shaped fruits with colorful red, orange and yellow hard exterior shells that protect the numerous cacao beans that are housed inside. These dark, flavorful beans are rich in nutritive fatty acids, minerals, polyphenols and Vitamin E. The beans are used to produce cocoa butter, cocoa powder and chocolate.

Cocoa Butter has been used within skin and hair care for centuries, originally by those that live within the tropical regions abundant with cacao trees. Traditionally, the butter has been used to soothe, protect and moisturize skin that has been exposed to harsh elements.

Our Organic Cocoa Butter is a premium quality, 100% natural butter that possess a beautiful cocoa aroma. It is a pure, crushed butter expeller pressed from organic cacao beans and its composition includes highly stable, natural saturated lipids that give the butters long shelf life.

Recommended Usage Rate:


Vegetable Butter Texture: Vegetable butters may partially or fully melt if they are exposed to warmer temperatures. This is sometimes an issue for natural vegetable butters that are shipped through warmer areas. Some butters may become grainy if they re-solidify too slowly. This is a natural occurrence that does not impact the quality or usability of the butter. Click here to learn how to eliminate the grainy texture.

Vegetable Butter Packaging: Our butters are packaged in airtight plastic containers, not retail packaging. We are a wholesale supplier, and most of our customers use our butters in their product formulations. Butters can sometimes melt during transit, and these containers help ensure that the butters don't leak. For a selection of glass and plastic easy-open jars that are wonderful to use in conjunction with our butters, look to our Packaging section.

Comments: LOVE IT! I use it 'as is' in my pregnancy. Love it so much. I'm getting an another tub as I've gone through a 16oz tub in 4 months. If anyone is interested in the cocoa butter/stretch mark debate: I'm 8 months along and so far no stretch marks to be seen. Hopefully it stays that way with more organic cocoa butter!
