Description 

Cocoa Butter:  This oil is a hard solid at room temperature, making the term "butter" a bit misleading. It is an edible vegetable fat that is obtained from cocoa beans, and it has a very mild chocolate-y aroma. Cocoa Butter is one of the most stable fats and also contains natural antioxidants. It is reputed to provide a barrier that helps retain and restore the moisture in your skin. This butter is different than our other butters like Mango or Coffee Butter which are soft to the touch. If you hold a piece of solid Cocoa Butter against your skin, it will start to melt in the way a chocolate bar does, but stays solid at room temperature.

Note: To avoid crystallization when melting cocoa butter, it is best to temper it. It's simple to do: raise the temperature on your melting cocoa butter slowly, over 45 minutes. Then, turn the heat off, cover the cocoa butter and let it cool for approximately 10 minutes. Use this method to achieve smoother lotion and lip balms.

Ingredients:
Botanical Name:  Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter
Common Name:  Cocoa Butter

Bring Back the old version please
When I first ordered this I noticed the smell was not as intense as your previous block-version. At the time your customer service person addressed my concerns and told me it should have the same scent. After using it many times, it really does not have the same smell. Once made into soap, it has no smell at all. You already have deoderized cocoa butter, please bring back the old, fully-scented version. I'm not a large enough company to get it in bulk. I would love to see it come back by the pound. Pretty, please <3

Hi Kristine! I'm sorry this version is not your favorite! We love our pastilles Cocoa Butter and how easy it is to melt and blend in the pellets! Though, it does have a very mild scent as noted in the product description. This is purposeful as Cocoa Butters do have a less noticeable scent because of their form. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

Not going to purchase these pellets
BB has always had the best cocoa butter..Now it is sad because unable to get it in deodorized chunks...I never had any issues with melting the cocoa butter and using in my lotions, butter, or cp..Never had grainy issues, never had to temper it for 45 minutes..The pellets and melted and poured into jars or buckets depending on the size has caused me problems..I just want the original chunk back, it was the best..However I did find a great company that sells it this way and am as happy with it as I was with BB..I guess I have always been a loyal customer of BB and it does make me sad that they would change the product completely instead of giving us the choice as to which one we want to purchase..

Hi Carolyn! I'm sorry you're not a fan of our Cocoa Butter in pellet form. Our new lots of Cocoa Butter coming in will include the Deodorized Cocoa Butter in chunks that you know and love! I will email you personally to discuss this further.

Easy to use - but NO scent
I read reviews prior to ordering this and decided to give it a try despite the newest comments. I love everything I've received from Bramble Berry - until this. While the pellets are substantially easier to work with (no bruised hands or potential wounds), something caused this cocoa butter to lose ALL of it's smell. Even once it was heated I couldn't detect the faintest smell of cocoa. Considering the scent of cocoa butter is a large part of why I buy it, I was sadly disappointed and won't be ordering this item again.

Hi Eryn! I'm glad you found our Cocoa Butter easy to work with! Though I'm sorry you were disappointed with the lack of scent. Our Cocoa Butter does have a very light scent. We do this so the scent will not conflict with any fragrance used in your final product. We also love how easy these pastilles are to blend into products. We do have Bulk Cocoa Butter that has a much stronger scent you may like. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

Cocoa Butter review
I was used to the block of cocoa butter that actually smelled like cocoa butter. I thought maybe I ordered the descented one in error but after reviewing my order I see that was not the case. I think if the smell is not there then the cocoa butter quality is very poor.

Great in CP Soaps!
This melts evenly with my other solid oils unlike the larger cocoa butter wafers sold on another site. I do wish you sold them in 2 lbs or 3 lbs, or other amounts between the 1 lb & the 8 lb. I love your shea butter as well!
