Cacao butter has been used for nourishing and consumed for enjoyment since the time of the Aztecs, Mayans and Incas. Cacao butter is well known as basis for chocolate, but it is also highly regarded in cosmetics. The butter-like substance absorbs deeply and leaves a pleasant feeling on the skin. Cacao butter is especially suitable for treating dry, sensitive and flaky skin due to its fatting and elasticity-increasing qualities. It is very popular in lip balms, body lotions, soaps, balms and eye care creams.
