Cacao Butter is the edible natural fat of the chocolate bean, cold pressed to retain its nutritional properties and exquisite natural aroma and flavour. It’s traditionally been used as a rich natural moisturiser; as a sexy and decadent massage oil; for soothing babies sore bums; in organic- based cosmetics like lipstick and balm, and in luxury soapmaking.
Suggested Uses: Raw Foodists love it !! Use instead of butter on toast etc, or warm gently until soft (melting point approx 35C / 95 F), then add as desired to raw foodist concoctions like blissballs or ice cream, chocolate creations, smoothies or desserts – or smear on skin and lips for the ultimate moisturiser.
We all know the myth that ‘fat is bad for you’ – in fact ‘good’ saturated fats are important for overall health and required by the body for skin and hair quality, hormonal regulation and fertility – and are irrelevant to cholesterol and weight gain.
Cacao Butter is a good source of Vitamin E (beta- and gamma- tocopherols) and has a unique composition including the essential fatty acids Omega-6 and monounsaturated Omega-9 (oleic acid, like olive oil) as well as stearic acid – an unusual fat in that it neither increases nor decreases blood cholesterol.
