Raw Organic Peruvian Cacao Butter – 16oz

$15.99

In its original form, raw cacao butter comes from cacao beans which grow on the Theobroma cacao tree. These cocoa beans are the same ones that produce chocolate and cocoa powder. Raw cacao butter has antioxidant properties due to tocopherols as well as certain polyphenols that suppress free radicals and soothe skin irritation. This raw cacao butter is produced without any harsh chemicals and has not been refined in any way and has NEVER been heated above 112 degrees F at any time of the pressing. Therefore, it retains all its natural healing and preventative properties. In addition, it has a lovely natural chocolate mocha scent which goes well with our raw cacao powder and in desserts. Our truly raw organic cacao butter is also an excellent moisturizer and has a wonderful texture.

At room temperature, this oil solidifies just like coconut oil. But when it’s applied to your skin, cacao butter melts like a lotion and is quickly absorbed into your pores for instant moisturizing.

But you can also eat cacao butter to reap its many health benefits. While cocoa butter does have hints of chocolate flavor, the texture is more like coconut butter and coconut oil combined.

The fat that occurs naturally in raw cacao beans gives chocolate its distinctive smoothness and “melt-in-the-mouth” texture. Cacao is loaded with healthy fats. In just one tablespoon of raw cacao butter, you’ll find the following healthy fats {*}:

14g of total fat
8.1g of saturated fat
4.5g of monounsaturated fat
0.4g of polyunsaturated fat
There’s also both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in each tablespoon.
