Cocoa butter is also known as an excellant moisturizer, and has been used to keep skin soft and supple for centuries. It melts at body temperature so that it is readily absorbed into the skin. Cocoa butter is often recommended for treatment of skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. When applied topically, it creates a barrier between sensitive skin and the environment and also helps retain moisture. In addition, cocoa butter contains cocoa mass polyphenol (CMP), a substance that inhibits the production of the immuno globulin IgE. IgE is known to aggravate symptoms of both dermatitis and asthma.
Cocoa Butter is also a good source of Vitamin E (Beta- and gamma tocopherols) and has a unique composition including essential fatty acids Omega-6 and monounsaturated Omega-9 (oleic acid), as well as stearic acid.
