about the product
Cocoa butter, also known as theobroma oil, is a pale-yellow, edible vegetable fat extracted from cocoa beans with a slight chocolate taste and fragrance and is used in chocolate confections, medicinal ointments, and toiletries.
This ingredient is coveted for its melting properties, including the ability to stay brittle at room temperature or below while melting only below body temperature.
Cocoa butter in the Philippines is also used for soap. Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, which is why it’s often touted for its ability to hydrate and nourish the skin and improve elasticity. The fat in cocoa butter forms a protective barrier over the skin to hold in moisture.
Cocoa butter is also rich in natural plant compounds called phytochemicals. These substances may improve blood flow to the skin and slow skin aging by protecting against damage from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
Cocoa butter in the Philippines is one of the most durable fats on the market, with antioxidants that prevent rancidity and a shelf period of two to five years. It increases the stability of other fats when mixed with them. The process of removing the flavor and color from cocoa butter often eliminates the antioxidants, making it more susceptible to rancidity.
