Whipped Cacao Butter For Skin
Cacao butter is the fat source that gives chocolate its signature melt-in-your-mouth consistency.
The “by-product” of making raw cacao powder, cacao butter is the oil that is pressed out of the cacao nib. Wildly Organic’s Cacao Butter is unrefined and never exposed to chemicals or solvents. It is neither roasted nor exposed to high heat, so it is truly raw. It’s excellent for cooking and using in cocoa butter recipes for your skin.
Using whipped cacao butter for skin will reap you benefits:
This cocoa butter recipe will leave your skin feeling silky soft and deeply moisturized.
Moisturizing Whipped Cacao Butter
It is amazingly simple to turn hard chunks of raw cacao butter into a fluffy and silky whipped cacao butter that sinks into skin in a matter of minutes.
Just melt the ingredients, cool them, and whip until they look like delicious whipped cream.
Use different fats, like rich shea butter, switch up the fragrance with essential oils, or even spice your whipped body butter with cinnamon or nutmeg. The variations are endless!
- If the oils don't change consistency for a while once you start whisking, the mixture might not be cold enough. Place it in the refrigerator for a few more minutes and try again.
- I use beeswax in the summer only. It helps the whipped body butter to keep its fluffy consistency longer.
- I use refined beeswax because unrefined wax smells a little too strong for me. You can use your preferred beeswax.
