Cocoa butter is a solid-at-room-temperature butter, that is extracted from the cacao bean, which grows on the cacao tree. The cacao pod is a large, gourd-shaped fruit; inside the pod are 30 to 40 cocoa seeds. These seeds are dried, roasted, and pressed and the fat is then extracted from the beans giving us this beautiful cocoa butter. That fat is what we know as cocoa ‘butter’. What is left over from this process is ground down to become cacao powder.
Cocoa butter helps to hydrate, nourish the skin and improve elasticity. The fat in cocoa butter forms a protective barrier over skin to hold in moisture. Anti-oxidant rich, free radical fighting & anti-aging vitamin E, cocoa butter is rich in natural plant compounds called phytochemicals. These substances may improve blood flow to the skin and slow skin aging by protecting against damage from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
It also contains polyphenol CMP, which has been found to suppress active oxygen, a factor in cancer. Polyphenol CMP also inhibits the production of an immuno-globulin that aggravate dermatitis and asthma, which would account for the incredible feedback we’ve had from customers reporting that our hand balms (containing 80% cocoa butter) have helped clear up their skin conditions.
Shea butter is the fat that is extracted from the nut from the shea (Karite) tree, mainly grown in West Africa.With its creamy texture it is a delight to apply to the skin. Scientific investigations have found that shea nut butter does not pose any known or likely allergy risk to consumers, including those with peanut or tree nut allergies. Heavenly Organics uses organic and fair trade shea butter which contains naturally occurring vitamins A, E & F, helping to maintain optimum skin health. Shea butter not only works on the surface of the skin, creating a protective barrier but it also penetrates deeply into the dermal layers of the skin to heal within.
