Crazy About Cocoa Butter

  • Softens and protects dry, chapped skin
  • Treats skin irritations
  • Helps erase wrinkles on neck, around eyes and mouth
  • Aids to minimize stretch marks
  • Promotes elasticity in the skin

The most desirable quality of cocoa butter is it contains natural antioxidants. Cocoa butter has the ability to reduce or diminish the appearance of scars. It is naturally rich in Vitamin E as well as a number of other vitamins and minerals. Vitamin E helps to soothe, hydrate, and balance the skin and also provides the skin collagen which assists with wrinkles and other signs of aging.

You can also just buy a glass jar of Coconut Oil at the health food store. Place the jar in a bowl of warm water. The coconut oil is solid at room temp, but melts right away. Massage into skin as an excellent moisturizer, or use as a hair mask to repair dry damaged hair. You'll smell amazing afterwards too!
