Origins

This raw cacao butter is made from 100% certified organic Criollo beans a superior variety of cacao bean that accounts for only 1% of the total world cacao production. Raw cacao butter (also known as theobromine oil) is a yellow vegetable fat that is extracted from raw cacao beans using a patented cold press method.

Facts

  • Raw cacao is commonly used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.
  • Cacao butter is a standard ingredient in many cosmetic products, including body creams, body lotions and ointments and can applied directly to your skin.
  • Melts at approximately 90 degrees Fahrenheit (35 degrees Celsius)
  • Our cacao butter is created through a new proprietary cold-pressed method. This process begins by cold-pressing our very own cacao nibs into a "cake" so that the oil begins to separate from the protein and fibre. Slowly, the pure, liquid cacao butter begins to sift off into a stainless steel valve that takes the cacao butter into a separate container
