Cocoa butter, the essential nourishing ingredient

Gebhard Sophie

In this article, BeautyMix has thought of the most gourmet… And yes, October 1st is World Cocoa and Chocolate Day!

As a result, we meet to talk about cocoa butter which is one of the flagship components of chocolate. In addition to having an enticing fragrance and providing a smooth texture, it is known and recognized for having many virtues and properties for the skin!

D e which includes cocoa butter?

The cocoa comes from a tree called thecocoa tree. It is a vegetable fat, composed of two types of acids: monounsaturated and saturated. It is made up of naturally occurring antioxidants that allow it to keep for several years! Depending on the tree it comes from, cocoa butter can be yellow or brown. It can be found in many shops in the form of pasta or lozenges. We have made the choice of tablets to facilitate their use!

What are the cosmetic properties of cocoa butter?

Cocoa butter is known to have many uses. It is very good nourishing because it is rich in fat (to be consumed without moderation…).

Rich in flavonoids, it is also a very good anti-oxidant. In other words, it has soothing and healing benefits. But not only ! It is also known to have some slimming properties and to fight against cellulite (and yes, we all have them!) Thanks to the caffeine present in the shell of the cocoa bean.

It also has vitamins to fight against skin aging, by stimulating collagen synthesis and promoting cell regeneration!

It can be used as much in the care of the skin but also in those of the scalp. 

It therefore has many qualities! It would be a shame to do without it, wouldn't it?

Cocoa butter, the ally of dry and atopic skin?

Finally, if there is one point to remember, it is that cocoa butter is more suitable for dry, sensitive and atopic skin thanks to its fatty substances. It is therefore to be applied to your flaky and dry areas. It will undoubtedly be your best ally of winter!


In which products is it found?

We told you, this butter is mainly nourishing! That is why it is mainly found in the composition of rich balms or creams. It is an excellent consistency factor for this type of cosmetic!

BeautyMix therefore uses it in particular in its recipe for lip balm, from deodorant and very soon ... in its lipsticks, multi-purpose balm and massage bar! 

So, will you be tempt ? 😉
