Cocoa Butter: The chocolate for your skin to fall in love!
No matter what skin type we have, moisturization is a necessary step in our daily skincare routine. It keeps our skin hydrated, reduces dryness, and reduces excess sebum production in oily skin. Dry skin is more susceptible to premature aging. Moisturization also protects our skin from showing early signs of aging.
What’s better than natural ingredients to moisturize our skin. And did you know that source of our favorite delicacies also provides us with healthy and moisturizing butter? The ingredient is Theobroma Cocoa Butter.
What is Theobroma Cocoa butter?
We all love chocolates regardless of our age. From a young age though, we have been told how chocolate is bad for our health. It is bad for our teeth, it is bad for our weight and what not. Of course, chocolate in excess is harmful but so is any other food. Here’s the thing, pure cocoa contains a high amount of antioxidants. This can help reduce oxidative stress from our internal organs keeping them healthy and well-functioning for long.
Theobroma cocoa butter is obtained by cold-pressing the cocoa beans. The butter is slightly yellow in color and is thick but since its melting temperature is close to human body temperature, it melts the moment we apply it on our skin.
Similar to cocoa chocolate, theobroma cocoa butter also has the bittersweet taste and aroma of chocolate.
Why use Theobroma Cocoa Butter in Skincare?
Theobroma Cocoa butter makes an excellent base for different skincare products. It has amazing skin moisturizing and antioxidant properties that are very important for our skin. Also, it keeps our skin hydrated and protects it from the attack of free radicals
This is because it contains phytochemicals like flavonoids. These act as antioxidants and theobromine that seek out reactive oxygen species & destroys them to protect our skin. Additionally, it is rich in omega fatty acids that rejuvenate our skin. This provides our skin intense hydration to make it soft and plump.
