When you think of cocoa butter, it’s generally in the context of sumptuous desserts. However this wonderful butter is also a powerhouse ingredient in beauty-care products. Cocoa butter is high in antioxidants to help mitigate the effects of skin damage and from harmful UV rays. Its anti-inflammatory and is reputed to help heal scars and soothe sensitive and irritated skin. Its also high in fatty acids which hydrate and nourish skin.
Cocoa Butter, or cacoa butter (also called theobroma oil) doesn’t come from a cow. Rather, its a type of fat that comes from cocoa beans. To harness the butter, the cocoa beans are extracted from the inside of the large fleshy cocoa fruit. The beans are then cleaned, roasted and pressed to separate out the fat—the cocoa butter.
Divine Body Butter Bars
Global Soap’s Body Butter Bars are made with pure Cocoa Butter, a touch of Sweet Almond Oil and are infused with a gorgeous blend of scents. These bars are so luxurious they’re perfect both in the dry winter months and as a summertime after-sun soother. Many people find them especially helpful for dry patches on elbows, knees, feet and hands. No better way to restore and rejuvenate your dry skin.
Our Body Butters are solid bars but melt effortlessly when applied to warm skin. The most effective time to apply is while the skin is still warm from a shower or bath. Your skin will be rewarded with superior smoothness and a protective barrier while you go about your daily activities.
Massage is another highly effective use of our bars. The cocoa butter acts brilliantly as a conduit for all kinds of massage, whether it be sports, deep tissue, therapeutic or sensual. Best applied in a warm room, the butter bars are a fantastic, non-messy alternative to liquid oils that can be used over and over again.
Our Butter Bars have also been a huge favourite of expectant mums to rub on the hips, belly, and breasts to ward off dry, itchy skin, as well as pregnancy-induced stretch marks.
