Aura Cacia Nourishing Organic Cocoa Butter -- 4 fl oz
Pure and Nourishing
Cocoa butter is very difficult to find without all of the harsh chemicals and unnecessary additives from what I've found. I was a bit taken aback when I opened the container to find it completely solid, the normal state for the cocoa butter. I throw it in the microwave from 30 seconds to a minute to get it to really warm up and turn liquid. When it's a little bit warm, it feels amazing on your skin. It really helps to hydrate it and you don't have to worry about any additives and it's 100% organic. I use it anywhere that could use a little bit of moisturizing. Plus, at Vitacost's price, it's a steal!

Luxurious scent, healing effects
I've now given this as a gift to several people who raved about it later. I like that this is a simple formula, without lots of additional scents and products added. Straightforward chocolate scent when first applied after bathing that fades to pleasant unobtrusiveness later. Cbutter soaks into skin leaving it soft and non-greasy. Does a great job on dry and chapping skin. I keep it in the fridge. When I go to bathe I take it out. With a whack on the counter the bar pops out. A little goes a long way. This will last a while. I'm a fan of Auracacia products. I trust them for authenticity and quality. Great price too.

Moisturizing and great smell
This product smells and moisturizes well. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because it melts well (it comes solidified) but it doesn't stay in a melted or creamy state unless mixed with another oil. I wanted straight cocoa butter for a moisturizer, but it takes too much time to melt it on a daily basis.

I bought this to make a face cream and it smells like chocolate, which I love! If this is worrying you, it doesn't last long. I mixed it with coconut oil and olive oil for my face cream and it can be greasy if you use too much. A little goes a long way and it absorbs well!
