To those who are not familiar with cocoa butter, you may be surprised to realize how many times you probably enjoyed eating! Why? Cause it's the solid oils present in most chocolates, it adds that "melts in your mouth" goodness that we are all craving. But cocoa butter has even more to offer than just pleasuring our taste buds. 

What is Cocoa Butter?

Cocoa butter is the by-product of cocoa beans. It is also known as "theobroma oil" which basically means in Greek words "food for the gods". It is a pale yellow edible fat that is extracted from cocoa beans. The smooth texture, pleasant aroma and emollient properties of cocoa butter have made it a top-performing ingredient of many products we use every day for our skin and hair such as conditioners, soaps, and lotions.

Amazing Benefits of Cocoa Butter to our skin

Cocoa is also branded as a superfood, and whether you eat it or apply it to your skin you get almost the same benefits. We love to incorporate this ingredient along with the natural ingredients in some of our skincare products.

1. Ultra-Hydrating and moisturizing

Since cocoa butter has a low melting point, the rich saturated fat easily melts into and is absorbed by our skin and hair. It's a wondrous natural moisturizer that deeply lubricates skin from the inside out. 

Oyin Whipped pudding is an all in one product keeps that promises well hydrated and moisturized hair and skin brought by cocoa butter as one of its ingredients. Whipped Pudding is excellent to help lock in moisture. It is also great to pamper dry elbows, knees or heels.

2. Fights off skin aging

Cocoa butter's thick but not heavy creamy texture is rich in antioxidants that also help to prevent skin from aging. It fights off free radicals or skin stressors that can damage our skin which ultimately lead to a wrinkled and dull looking skin.

Many people also experience cocoa butter as an excellent treatment to eliminate or help treat stretch marks and scars. This is why it's a major ingredient in out body butter bars which are great for all-over lotion application, and serve as luxurious "spot treatments;" for scars, dry spots, or stretch marks.

3. Natural healing power

Cocoa butter deeply soothes burns like sunburns and is gentle to use as a natural treatment for serious skin problems like eczema or dermatitis. It helps reduce flaky, rough and dry patches on our skin.

For a rich and luxurious skin feel that nourishes your skin from the inside out you can never go wrong with Oyins Noashatall cocoa butter lotion. Along with other natural ingredients, the velvety, rich Noashatall lotion can keep your skin well hydrated and moisturized.
