Ingredients: 100% pure cocoa butter extracted from organic cocoa beans
If making your own cosmetics here's the recommended usage for different types of products:
Lotions & Creams: 5 - 20 %
Balms: 5 - 100 %
Bar Soaps: 5 - 20 %
Hair Conditioners: 1 - 5 %
When adding butters to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm them until the texture can be incorporated into the final product. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle your melted butter to fully incorporate. For addition in soaps, the general rule of thumb is 1 tablespoon per pound. As with most raw materials, results may vary, so we strongly recommend small, lab scale batches prior to any commercial manufacturing.
