Boy, oh boy do we love cocoa butter! The velvety texture when it melts upon contact with your skin. The yummy subtle chocolaty scent that is oh-so-divine. And the way it makes skin so soft, is just the cherry on top of the icing. Cocoa butter has got to be our all-time favourite ingredient, right above chocolate itself. That's probably why we will always find ways to sneak it in most of our products. We feature it prominantly in our Chocolàt collection, and it will be front-and-center in our upcoming lip butters.
Here, we list few of the many reasons why cocoa butter will always be a staple at Tinkerberry:
1. Skin soothing
Cocoa butter can heal and soothe the most sensitive of skins. It also happens to be mankind's salvation to skin conditions like eczema and dermatitis. The butter acts as a protective barrier against the harsh environment, and helps retain moisture.
2. Antioxidant powerhouse
Cocoa butter is a potent source of antioxidants, keeping those nasty free radicals away from causing premature aging to your skin. Fun fact : cocoa butter has much higher antioxidant concentration than most superfoods out there.
3. Reduces stretch marks
Cocoa butter has gained come traction in recent years for its abilitites to reduce stretch marks. It is an excellent emollient that heals marks and scars.
4. Deep hydration
Penetrating deep into the layers of the skin, the butter moisturizes from within, leaving behind plumper and hydrated skin.
