What is cocoa butter in cosmetics?

Cocoa butter is a natural fat contained in cocoa beans. After harvesting the pods, the cocoa beans are cleaned, roasted and then pressed to obtain a paste.

This natural cocoa butter contains numerous antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and offers exceptional benefits for the skin. If it is also often used in cosmetics, it is also because of its thickening texture, which makes it possible to create solid balms, compact and nourishing hair masks or creams that are creamy and pleasant to apply.

Cocoa butter mixes perfectly with other quality cosmetic ingredients, making it possible to create exceptional treatments with gourmet notes and unparalleled, sensory textures.


Cocoa butter cosmetics: the benefits on the skin

Cocoa butter is an exceptional ingredient that offers many benefits to the skin. By treating yourself to a natural treatment containing this ingredient, you are actually treating yourself to a real compendium of benefits .

1. Intense hydration and nutrition

Cocoa butter is particularly rich in fatty acids, which help retain moisture in the skin, promoting good hydration and good protection against external aggressions.

Omega-9 and squalene offer protective and emollient properties which strengthen the skin's hydrolipidic film and provide nutrition and comfort. It is therefore a particularly beneficial ingredient for dry and dehydrated skin, helping to prevent dryness and cracking.

We recommend the Nourishing Face Mask with a gourmet scent, which intensely nourishes and protects the skin.

2. Improved skin elasticity

Cocoa butter helps stimulate the production of collagen and elastin , especially if it is applied using a circular massage.

Little by little, it allows the skin to regain suppleness and elasticity , giving it a more youthful appearance. Likewise, the presence of vitamin E and polyphenols in cocoa butter protects the skin from oxidative stress and free radicals, thus helping to slow down skin aging.

We recommend Xo-Chiq Oil , which contains not only organic cocoa butter but also 7 precious oils that will enhance your skin and hair.

3. Healing and prevention of stretch marks

Thanks to its restorative and antioxidant properties as well as its high vitamin E content, cocoa butter effectively stimulates the regeneration of skin damaged by external aggressions, thus helping to sustainably restore the skin barrier.

The polyphenols, squalene and phytosterols present in cocoa butter soothe irritated or damaged skin. Their action on the lipid film helps the skin regain suppleness and heal more effectively.

In cosmetics, cocoa butter is therefore used to reduce the appearance of acne scars or in body care to fight against the appearance of stretch marks.

If your skin needs a dose of intense nutrition, opt for Baume des Dieux , a wonderful repairing body treatment with a melting texture.


4. Soothing of Sensitive and Atopic Skin

Organic cocoa butter, rich in emollient, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, instantly soothes irritation and redness of sensitive skin prone to eczema, for lasting comfort.
If your skin is prone to blemishes or redness, vitamin E present in poop butter is recommended because it stimulates cell regeneration and reduces acne scars and other imperfections.

Cocoa butter and hair care

Cocoa butter is also found in many nourishing and repairing hair masks.

Indeed, cocoa butter is an effective natural moisturizer for dry hair , prone to frizz or breakage, because it seals moisture in the hair fiber. It helps tame flyaways and gives it a softer texture while limiting frizz.

In addition, it provides natural protection against UV rays, thus preserving hair health and color in summer. Cocoa butter also promotes hair volume by improving blood circulation in the scalp, which stimulates hair growth. In summer, it protects hair from damage caused by sun , wind and cold, and prevents split ends and breakage.

We recommend our exceptional, natural and vegan Hair Mask , Ecocert Cosmos Organics certified, and rated 100/100 on Yuka. Thanks to its high content of organic cocoa butter and jojoba oil, it is the ultimate remedy for damaged and dull hair.

Finally, depending on the texture of your hair, you can use it daily in light touches on the ends to hydrate dry and damaged hair, reduce frizz and add shine to the lengths.
