Organic* Cocoa Butter Cubes: If you are looking for a strongly scented, easy to handle cocoa butter, you have come to the right place! These adorable cubes weigh only about 1 gram each, and are simple to scoop, measure and melt. 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. It is a vegetable fat that is obtained from cocoa beans. Cocoa Butter is one of the most stable fats and also contains natural antioxidants.
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.
