- Fair Trade Certified Cocoa Butter
- USDA Organic
Natural organic cocoa butter (Theobroma cacao) is an ideal moisturizing product, valued for both its skin-nourishing properties and its strong cocoa aroma. It has been used as an ingredient in cosmetics, toiletries, ointments, lotions, body creams and more.
Aura Cacia Organic Cocoa Butter comes from a village in Peru that produces certified organic and Fair Trade cocoa butter.
What’s the difference between organic cocoa butter and conventional cocoa butter?
Organic oils differ from conventional oils in that the botanicals from which they are derived are grown according to the USDA’s Organic Standards. Our manufacturing facility and all of our organic oils have also been certified organic by the established third-party certifier, Quality Assurance International (QAI).
Aura Cacia® was founded over 40 years ago on pure essential oils and true aromatherapy benefits. We partner with suppliers to source high quality botanicals and rigorously test every batch to ensure purity. We then provide premium products with consumer safety at the forefront. And importantly, Aura Cacia is part of a member owned co-op that puts people and planet ahead of profits.
Use as desired to soften skin. For aromatherapy applications, gently melt cocoa butter and blend with Aura Cacia 100% pure essential oils. Remove cap and seal before heating. Heat only until product is softened. Let product cool before applying to skin.
