Cocoa butter comes from the vegetable-fat part of the cocoa bean. It provides a wonderful barrier on your skin to lock in moisture. Though it may not get rid of them, cocoa butter does help to prevent your skin from getting stretch marks. It is especially good therapy for extremely dry skin. The best time to use Cocoa Butter Lotion is after a shower, while the skin is still moist.

Chef’s notes

Cocoa Butter Lotion must be refrigerated for up to 2 months to avoid spoilage because it contains no preservatives. Using unscented cocoa butter is ideal for those who love the benefits of cocoa butter but not the scent. Adding fragrant essential oil is a wonderful option if you would prefer your lotion to have the aroma of flowers. Cheers to goodness!
