Cocoa Butter is extracted from whole cocoa beans that come from the cacao tree. They are fermented and then dried. After that, the hulls are roasted and separated to produce nibs. These nibs are ground and the heat from the grinder melts the fat away, turning the nibs into a liquid where the butter is extracted. Cocoa Butter is an ingredient in many skin care products that we see on the shelves, and for good reason. Cocoa butter benefits for skin are numerous!
