Description

Details

Ultra refined cocoa butter is produced from the fruit of the cacao tree. These are the same beans that are used to make chocolate. Once the cacao beans are harvested, the fat from the beans is extracted and further processed and refined to make a white, scent-free butter. Ultra refined cocoa butter is of significant importance for both food and cosmetic applications. Unrefined or semi-refined cocoa butter has a pale yellow color with a slightly sweet chocolate fragrance. This color and fragrance will come through in the end product. By using ultra refined cocoa butter in body care products, the color and fragrance remain neutral.
