Unrefined Cocoa Butter

(20 customer reviews)

$ 19.50

Saying Cocoa butter just makes you want to cook up something chocolate, doesn’t it? We call our products Skin Foods, because, well–they are! Though it sounds edible, it’s not actually chocolate yet. Rich cocoa butter is obtained from fermented, roasted, and separated whole cocoa beans.

So what’s Cocoa Butter got to do with skin care? Stretch marks, my friend! Cocoa butter is the leading ingredient in commercial stretch mark creams and lotions. It reduces their appearance by penetrating layers of skin, repairing and hydrating like no other. Our North American grown organic Cocoa Butter is unrefined and 100% pure–no chemicals or diluted product here. Just the real deal!

Go ahead–indulge today and show off your radiant, rejuvenated skin!

Weight: 16 oz.



Cocoa trees were first cultivated in Mexico all the way back to 1500 BC, but only fairly recently has cocoa butter become known as a skin care ingredient.

Unrefined Cocoa Butter has the ability to deeply absorb into the layers of your skin, far beyond any other butter, for this reason cocoa butter is the key ingredient in all stretch mark creams on the market.

It is also packed with anti-oxidants and fatty acids which helps create a barrier against free radicals. If you suffer from dry cracked skin or skin irritation, cocoa butter can help, sooth, and repair your skin.

Once you start to use our organic Cocoa Butter, straight or in combination with a DIY skin care recipe, we are confident you will fall in love with the quality and the light natural chocolaty scent it has. It works very well in combination with our famous Unrefined Shea Butters, waxes and carrier oils.

How to use Cocoa Butter

Drop a pea-size dollop of cocoa butter in your hands and rub together to melt then apply directly to the skin. If you whip it into into one of our luscious body butter recipes, apply much as you would any other cream. We recommend you use a wooden or plastic spatula or spoon to dip into your lotion or cream container.

You can also use Cocoa Butter to tame frizzy and unruly hair. Melt a small amount in your hands, scrunch into or run over your hair to moisturize, smooth and shine.

Storing Cocoa Butter

Store Cocoa Butter in its original container or place in a plastic or glass jar with a lid.  Keep it in a cool, dry place out of the sunlight. As long as the temperature is below 75 degrees there is no need to keep it refrigerated. Cocoa Butter has an average shelf life of 24 months.

  1. Brittany Ray

    I’ve been using products containing unrefined cocoa, shea, and mango butter for years, but none of them have compared to what I was able to create using Better Shea Butter products! The smell, quality, and quantity that you receive for the price is incomparable!

  2. Deborah

    My family loves Cocoa Butter. My granddaughter and I made a large supply of Cocoa hard lotion bars, for gifts. I also used empty, clean deodorant containers so my sister could have a roll on lotion for the beach. Thank you so much for this great product. Debbie

  3. Nichole Cooper

    This product is absolutely LOVELY! I adore the chocolatey smell and it is WONDERFUL for making body cream and lotion bars!!

  4. Kelley

    This is the best Cocoa Butter I had purchased in the last three years is not cheap but is the best so far.and I tried at least 5 company in the market not even close to this decadent Chocolate smells rich and lovely texture.
    I am staying right here! I am going for mango and Shea next time.

  6. Pam

    I ordered Saturday and received my order this afternoon(Monday)!! I have severe skin allergies which leaves my skin with giant hives and extremely dry! I mixed up this amazing Cocoa butter (the aroma is amazing) with part Mango butter (so silky) and a little Apricot Kernel oil. Once it had hardened up, I whipped it and used a little scoop to make walnut size balls. After my shower I just grabbed one at a time to moisturize my skin. My SKIN is LOVING this wonderfully hydrating, soothing combo!!

    • Isabella

      I know the feeling! It’s hard to describe how your skin feels with these simple ingredients versus using lotions and creams that have 20+ ingredients. Thank you for ordering from us and for your feedback 🙂

  7. Stephanie

    Can’t say enough good about this Cocoa Butter! I love it and it’s amazing in my formulations. Yes, it’s hard. But get a butter knife and cutting board and chip it off and you can break it into smaller pieces. I would totally recommend this Cocoa Butter to anyone!

  8. Joyeux777

    Absolutely amazing. I plan on trying to mix it with Shea Butter to try to create the ultimate skin moisturizer. Thank you sooo much!

  9. Chris Starks

    Love the smell and it leaves my skin with a nice glow and softness. The only thing i have trouble with it breaking off the pieces and having it melt in my hands, anyone figure out a good method for this??

    • Shea Butter Lady

      Hi Chris, it’s almost impossible to break off the cocoa butter with your hands, if you have succeeded, you are strong! Some options are: grate it just like you would with any bock of beeswax, or use a knife to chip off chunks – make sure you are careful when you do this though.

  10. Reenu B

    Amazing!!! When you first open the package you are hit with its beautiful and natural chocolate smell! I use this to make body butter at home and the quality is great!

    • Shea Butter Lady

      Thank you for the feedback, we would love to see your creation – you can post it on our Facebook Page or email it to info@bettersheabutter.com and we will post it for you and give you full credit 🙂

  11. Timothy Shelton

    Amazing stuff. Thank you. Fast shipment. Will order again.

  12. cac8277

    This is great cocoa butter. I’ve used several different brands and this one is easy to work with, stays fresh and smells great!! I use it in lotions both cream and solid and this is the best I’ve used.

  13. blingfairy

    I have not used the Cocoa Butter just yet. However, I do Iove the smell. I also like the fact that the Seller sends various recipes for making body creams and butters. Excellent job and I will purchase another when I finish using this one. The block is a nice size.

  14. D Tonn

    I purchased this to make lotion bars with for my feet …it is sooooo rich in scent and texture !!! Very nice product !!!!

  15. jim bellew

    A gift for my daughter. She just started to make natural skin care products for herself and she loved using this product

  16. Chavela

    Second time I bought from this company and it hasn’t disappointed me. Feels amazing in your skin without leaving a film of “grease”. I love making DIY body lotions so this product is perfect! And I am a very picky person.

  17. lacee

    I bought the Shea Butter from this company and was very satisfied with the purchase. So I decided to buy the Cocoa Butter from them as well. And I am thrilled that I did. The quality is exceptional compared to other brands. The smell is great, but can be strong for those who don’t like the sweet chocolate smell, you can just mix it with some essential oils. I didn’t because I love the cocoa smell!!! Best products hands down!!! Definitely recommend you try Better Shea Butter. You won’t be disappointed! At least I wasn’t!!!

  18. j evans

    Awesome. I used this and the shea butter for making hair and body products at home. Both products are great quality. Also, the owner sent me an awesome recipe for making cocoa butter lotion bars. What’s not to love?

  19. Misha G

    Amazing, amazing, yummy stuff. Well, yummy as in lovely to use. This works great as an addition to a homemade lotion with coconut oil or another base oil. Here’s an awesome way to keep your summertime feet luscious and soft:

    Once you are already in bed, rub a tiny amount of this 100% Pure Cocoa Butter in your palms to warm it up and liquefy it. Then rub it all over your clean feet. When you are done, rub any remainder into your hands and forearms. Lie down and bask in the incredible smell of chocolate, knowing that your feet are all lubed up and there is no way you are getting out of bed to satisfy the craving for chocolate you now have. Win-win? Yes, I think so. 🙂

  20. Patricia Young

    I received the cocoa butter faster than expected. It is a beautiful solid bar and smells wonderful before you even have a chance to open the bag. I used a kitchen knife to shave off a small piece at a time. It turns your bath into relaxation bliss and moisturizers your skin like nothing else. I also use it at night for feet and elbows and it works like magic!
