Cocoa Butter (Cosmetic)

52 reviews

Baraka Cocoa Butter is made from sustainably grown and community harvested cocoa beans. Originating from small-holder farms, the beans are harvested and prepared using traditional techniques.

As our cocoa butter is crafted in small batches, some natural variation in scent is normal. Occasionally, the cocoa butter may have a stronger roasted chocolate scent.

Please note: Food Grade Cocoa Butter is sold for cosmetic use. The Food Grade designation simply refers to the fact that it is put through a micro-filter to remove micro-solids to the level required for high-end chocolate making.

    Haven’t opened it yet but used before. But I do think your emails are too frequent! Once a week is enough-daily is too often and enough to make me unsubscribe

    My favorite!

    This is real cocoa butter and I can tell from the smell. It smells like real dark chocolate. It moisturizes and absorbs into my skin without leaving me greasy. Works like magic. This is by far my favorite item.

    A new die hard fan!

    Great value and worth the price! I was a little skeptical starting off because of the price compared to the other items I brought from Baraka. I took the risk as a newbie to natural skin care and I promise you I won’t order from anywhere else. If I run out... I’ll wait lol. Baraka’s Shea, coconut and cocoa butter is the best out there. If you are doing research like I did to find the best, here it is! I couldn’t believe how fast it got to me in the US too! Absolutely a fan and a new die hard customer

    Great cause!!!!

    I am so happy i accidently came across this company! The story line is hands down heart touching! My only problem is i thought i was getting coco butter but i got a open package of large pieces tgat the border thought was a certain kind of drug and i cant blame them because its exactly what it looks like. Im not to surd how to use it because i got instructions for black soap so i just take the cbunks and rub them on my body. My husband laughes at me saying i look crazy but whatever its a great cause so i have no regrets. Ive even shared with neighbors who asked me how to use it because i got so much. I demonstrated my way lol..Thanks ladies for your hard work, you are bri ging smiles to manu here in canada!!!
