Cocoa butter is extracted from the roasted cocoa beans from Theobroma cacao plant, native to Amazonian areas of South America and the tropical areas of Africa and Asia. Cocoa is usually associated with chocolate making, but it has been used by South American civilisations for thousands of years as food and to moisturise skin and promote skin health. Cocoa butter has become a popular ingredient in natural skincare products and is suitable for cooking, baking and vegan recipes.
