Whipped Cacao Butter For Skin

Cacao butter is the fat source that gives chocolate its signature melt-in-your-mouth consistency.

The Fairtrade certified organic cacao butter from Wildly Organic is simply delightful. It smells deeply of rich chocolate, yet it is a light beige color.

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.

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!

Luxurious Whipped Cacao Butter for Silky Skin
    Makes:2 cups
    1. Combine all ingredients in a heavy bottomed saucepan or water bath over low heat.
    2. As soon as the ingredients start to melt, remove from heat, and transfer to the bowl of a stand up mixer with a whisk attachment. Alternatively, you can use a hand mixer.
    3. Put the bowl in the refrigerator for 40-50 minutes. You want the oils just to begin to solidify. Note the color: the mixture will change color from clear to opaque, and become lighter.
    4. Whip with the whisk attachment (or hand mixer), scraping down sides, for about 5 minutes, or until it resembles whipped cream.
    5. Transfer to small mason jars.
    6. Keep at room temperature for about 2 months.
    Recipe Notes
    • 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.
