Organic Cocoa Butter - Deodorized

*This product is for External Use Only. It is not for internal consumption

Cocoa Butter, also known as Cacao Butter, is obtained from the fruit of the cocoa tree — genus Theobroma. The cocoa tree dates back over 3,000 years, and is native to the Amazon forest and regions of Central America. Craft 360 Organic Deodorised Cocoa Butter is made from Peruvian beans.

Cocoa is cultivated organically in Peru, utilising an agroforestry system. This system integrates well with the existing forest structure — where the cocoa trees are grown in combination with taller shade and fertiliser trees, without chemical fertiliser and chemical pest control.

Once the fruits are completely ripe, the cocoa harvest commences. This involves splitting open the fruit and removing the beans from the pod. After fermentation, the beans are then roasted, stripped, and pressed to separate the fat, creating Cocoa Butter. The result is a premium, unrefined Cocoa Butter with a decadent, chocolate-like odour. This naturally strong aroma is hard to mask and utilise in cosmetics and toiletries. Therefore, Craft 360 Cocoa Butter is partially deodorised to eliminate the intense smell, leaving a natural, subtle, creamy chocolate scent. 

Benefits of Organic Deodorised Cocoa Butter

The typical fatty acid composition for Organic Cocoa Butter includes 34.5% stearic acid, 34.5% oleic acid, and 26.5% palmitic acid. These fatty acids contribute to the following benefits:

  • Forms a protective barrier on skin, locking in moisture — giving excellent hydration
  • Can be used to soften and condition hair 
  • Has a high level of oleic acid when coupled with natural antioxidants — preventing rancidity and creating a longer shelf life
  • Is known to contain vitamin E — replenishing the skin, scalp, and hair
  • Contains small quantities of vitamin K — believed to avoid development of stretch marks
  • Scientific studies suggest the presence of flavonoid and polyphenol antioxidants may reduce inflammation and shield the skin from UV-induced damage
