PLEASE NOTE THAT: Our natural butters may melt naturally around 25 to 30 degrees C.

But do not worry! The melting can change the appearance of the product on the surface but will not degrade its properties. Vegetable butters should become solid again within a few hours (or sometimes days, depending on the butter). We kindly recommend that you store your butters in the fridge in hot weather, and to always keep them in a fresh/cool environment at room temperature otherwise.

TRADITIONALLY USED FOR

This butter gets very hard at room temperature. Heat the Cocoa butter slowly (in a bain-marie) until melted and mix with other components.

 

Use it combined with softer butters or carrier oils to make:  

 

• a balm (30% cocoa butter for 70 % of Softer oil),

• a richer body cream (5% cocoa butter into 95% of cream, lotion…) or  

• a delicious body massage butter (50% cocoa butter for 50% of a carrier oil)

• a nourishing Dry Hair mask (40% cocoa butter for 60% carrier oil). Apply on hair and wrap in a warm towel for ½ hour before shampoo. For a deep intensive hair regenerating mask, wrap and leave overnight.  

 

CAUTION

Keep out of reach of children and pets.

As a general rule, always perform a skin patch test before using your essential oils for the first time.
