Cocoa Butter and its Many Great Benefits

Cocoa butter has many great health benefits that you might not know about. It can help moisturize your skin, manage your hair, and it's an excellent source of antioxidants. It is one of the most stable fats known, a quality that, coupled with natural antioxidants, prevents rancidity, giving it a storage life of two to five years. Its velvety texture, pleasant fragrance and emollient properties have made it a popular ingredient in products for the skin, such as soaps and lotions.

Cocoa butter is a very unique natural product that has been used for hundreds of years. Also known as theobroma oil or theobroma cacao, it is light yellow in color and made from the cacao bean.

It can be used to make chocolate, other baked goods, and create pharmaceuticals and general bathroom products. Most is an effective remedy for stretch marks.
In order for cocoa butter to be effective, it should get in contact with as many of your skin cells as possible, which involves rubbing it well into your skin.  The skin is very absorbent and will destroy free radicals in the lower depths of your skin as soon as they are produced, and before they can do damage.

It has been scientifically proved that cocoa butter will prevent skin degradation due to the harmful effects of the UV light in the rays of the sun - UV radiation generates free radicals that are very effective at destroying skin.  Just look at the effect of sunburn!

It is a brain food as well as food for your skin. Without a doubt, there are few better skin care products than cocoa butter, and few that also makes you feel good scientifically in addition to feeling great at the way you skin looks so good.
