These pastille are SO much easier than the deodorized cocoa butter I had been using. I was kind of glad that I ran out of that so I could try these. I melted them slowly with my coconut oil before adding my other oils at room temperature. It was perfect. And easy. I will only be ordering these from now on.

This product is the bomb! I just wondered what the shelf life is?

Nice quality

These have a very light scent and that is exactly what I was personally looking for. I did not want it to scent my final product. This is a really affordable version of this product and have used it with great success in body mousse and bath truffles alike. A little seems to go a long way but I will definitely be ordering more.

Love This Stuff!

This cocoa butter is amazing! I prefer my cocoa butter to not have a strong scent, as I don't like having to compete with it in lip balms. Not only is this cocoa butter easy to use because of the pastille form it comes in, but it doesn't have a strong scent! Win win! I see a lot of reviewers whining about stuff that is very obviously user error. You need to read the description! It tells you all about graininess and all about the faint smell. It's a shame this product has less stars than it should all because some people can't be bothered to do a little reading.

Gritty in lip balms

I was excited when I got these pastilles, because they were so much easier to measure and handle than the big chunks of cocoa butter. Unfortunately, I discovered they make my lip balms gritty. I have never had this problem before, so I didn't anticipate it. Embarrassed, because I had made a new batch and sent some out to customers, and then I used some myself--gritty, nasty feel. They also do not have the lovely cocoa butter smell. I will not be buying these again. Unfortunately, I still have a lot to use up. Will have to use in soaps, as I don't want the gritty feel in my balms and body products. Very disappointed.

Hi Pamela! I'm sorry you had trouble working with this product. We love the Cocoa Butter Pastilles specifically for their ease of use in measuring and melting those tiny pellets. However, they can get a gritty feeling if they cool too slowly. To get rid of the grittiness, you can temper the butter. To do so, slowly heat the butter to about 100° F and hold this temperature for 45-60 minutes. Once your butter has been tempered, pour it into an airtight container and place into the fridge to cool rapidly. Find out more about tempering in our Soaping in the Summer Heat blog post. While the Cocoa Butter Pastilles do smell faintly of cocoa butter, it is not that strong due to their pellet form. For our strongest smelling cocoa butter check out our Organic Cocoa Butter Cubes.
