Cocoa Butter Dark - African Natural (tm) Bulk Sizes
Dark Cocoa Butter is created right after the pod of the cocoa plant has germinated.
The beans inside the pod are roasted, carbonating the shoots inside to create it's dark, rich chocolate colour.
This butter smells like the cocoa we make hot cocoa from, which is part of the reason that it is such a popular ingredient.
Dark Cocoa Butter is slightly softer than other cocoa butters and absorbs very quickly into the skin.
Use in skin care formulations requiring a thickening agent that will also create a smoothing & moisturizing effect on the skin.
Non-greasy and velvety smooth - it literally sinks right into your skin and hair if used sparingly. Delish!
Scent: Smells like cocoa to me although the scent in this butter is not strong enough to scent most end products on its own.
Colour: Cocoa - Dark brown to blackish colour.
Absorption: Absorbs easily into skin
Benefits: Great for use as a smoothing, moisturizing, thickening agent in soaps & other skin care formulations.
Gives a unique colour - excellent for summer time skin care products if you are wanting to make a dark brown product - or use just a little to control the depth of the final product colour.
I like to use cocoa butters in general for their powdery feel - this one has a totally decadent smoothness too it as well. Besides, it's just really cool!
No cocoa butter collection is complete without dark cocoabutter. Helps with the prevention of stretch marks. Rich in Vitamin E & anti-oxidants.
NOTE: It really is dark in colour and may stain clothing and skin. I did have some melt on a white tablecloth and it did come out when I hand scrubbed it with laundry detergent but it's something to be aware of.
