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, pressed and the fat is then extracted from the beans, giving us this beautiful cocoa butter.
Cocoa butter was chosen as the main ingredient due to its ability to hydrate and nourish the skin and improve elasticity. The fat in cocoa butter forms a protective barrier over the skin to holds in moisture. It is anti-oxidant rich and has anti-aging vitamin E.
Shea butter – is blended with cocoa butter to form the base ingredients of this luxurious hand balm and is the African treatment for skin conditions such as eczema, scarring sunburn, itching, insect bites & skin blemishes.
Shea butter is the fat that is extracted from the nut of the shea (Karite) tree, mainly grown in West Africa.
