Cocoa butter can be used to make soaps, creams, hair products, lotions, and lip balms to bring stiffness to the end product or used alone as a body butter. At room temperature, cocoa butter is hard but melts on contact with body heat.
It has occlusive properties with skin barrier function.
Handling: To avoid crystallization when melting cocoa butter, it is best to temper it. It's simple to do: raise the temperature on your melting cocoa butter slowly, over 45 minutes. Then, turn the heat off, cover the cocoa butter and let it cool for approximately 10 minutes. Use this method to achieve smoother lotion and lip balms.

Now in pastille form. Much easier to measure out! Cocoa Butter is obtained from the fruit of the cacao tree (Theobroma Cacao) in Africa. From its seed kernels, the butter is extracted and refined to obtain a white butter, making it ideally suited for use in cosmetics and toiletries. Cocoa butter is solid at room temperatures but melts easily on contact with the skin. Prevents drying of the skin and development of wrinkles. Reduces degeneration of skin cells and restores skin flexibility. May enhance the stability, of certain emulsion systems.
I like to use cocoa butter in my lip balm and having a chocolate smell from the butter with flavours just doesn't feel (or smell) right. The deodorized coca butter pastilles from Soap & More are 100% scent free and their small size make melting them so fast! I love this product and would recommend it to anyone looking for cocoa butter & who do not want the cocoa smell. I also really appreciate being able to buy in a large qty.
Great for soap making. They melted nicely. Can’t wait to try a bar with them in it!
I love these! So easy to work with and it makes amazing products, especially my with my face lotions and bath butters!
Perfect for using to make vegan " butter" per Brianna Grogan and for baking.
Perfect! The tiny pellet size makes it so easy to weigh and use. No more annoying chopping.
