Since becoming more ingredient conscious and discovering pure and REAL cocoa butter I’ve sworn off Palmer’s brand cocoa butter products. A while ago I told you guys I would share my cocoa butter recipe. The time as come! This butter crumbles and then melts into a nice creamy, spreadable moisturizer that will leave your skin feeling as soft as a baby’s buttox. This recipe contains 3 simple and pure ingredients, each for their ability to penetrate and hold moisture.
cocoa butter: delicious smelling butter which contains high concentrations of vitamin E, promotes healing and regeneration of skin cells and of course helps to fade scars and other discolorations
monoi oil: this is a fragrant and highly refined oil which quickly absorbs into the skin (and hair) containing anti-aging properties
jojoba oil: with properties similar to the sebum our skin naturally secretes, this oil is a no brainer
Melt 4 oz. of pure cocoa butter over a double boiler to avoid scorching the butter as it liquifies.
