Cocoa butter is known for excessively dry skin, stretch marks, and scars... but it is so much more than that too! This natural ingredient is an anti-aging genius because it is FULL of anti-oxidants, healthy fatty acids, and a special anti-oxidant called Polyphenol which has been known to reverse/diminish signs of aging and remove skin conditions and rashes. It is also known to fight inflammation, increase skin immunity and can even be used for shaving!
Here are some other reasons why this butter is so amazing:
Cocoa butter is too heavy for the skin when by itself, so it needs to be whipped with other oils, called carrier oils, that can help this butter penetrate the skin so that you can reap the benefits.
There are some DIY's out there, but just be careful that you're doing things that are HELPFUL to your skin and not HARMFUL. Try to choose sources that have some credibility - doing the wrong thing can create damage to the skin.
