Cocoa butter, also called cacao butter, is the cream-colored fat
extracted from cacao seeds (cocoa beans). Cocoa butter is a great moisturizer/emollient,
because of its high fatty
acids, meaning it can penetrate deep-down into the skin and hydrate from
within. It is one of the most stable, highly concentrated natural fats known.
When applied topically, it creates a barrier between the top layer of the skin and
the dermis where the
body is more able to retain the moisture. It melts at body temperature and is
quickly and easily absorbed into the skin.
Scaring and Stretch marks
can be applied both to scarring and the skin surrounding it as well as used as
a prevention for stretch marks. In addition to softening and moisturizing your
skin, it will smooth out the tone and texture of it, making scars look less
noticeable and keep stretch marks away, Furthermore, applying cocoa butter
topically on a daily basis can help facilitate repairing damaged skin. In order
for the body to regrow skin tissue, the skin must be well hydrated. Therefore,
cocoa butter's unique ability to lock moisture in at the deeper levels of the
skin makes it particularly beneficial as a treatment for scars.
Recent research indicates that massaging the skin with cocoa butter may help relieve stress, boost the immune system, and help with arthritis.
