Organic Raw Cacao Butter
For years, we have seen the words “cacao butter” included in the ingredients of a product. We also often see it in beauty products like salves, lip balm, lotion, shampoo and make-up. But as research about this butter deepens, it is slowly becoming apparent that its uses extend beyond just external beauty products.
How Cacao Butter is made
Raw cacao butter comes from raw cacao beans that have been pressed in order to extract its oils, which we now call raw cacao butter. The growing interest people have for raw food in recent years prompted many companies to delve more into the production of raw organic cacao butter. Cacao butter is the purest form of cacao oil and has the most of its nutritional value retained. Because of this cacao butter can now be found in health food stores. But is raw cacao healthy? Aside from being responsible in giving chocolate its consistency and bulk (it’s the reason why chocolate melts in your mouth), raw organic cacao butter delivers oleic acid which help reduce the risk of heart disease. It contains appreciable amounts of Vitamins K, Vitamin E, theobromine, antioxidants and other vitamins and micronutrients that all work together to promote weight loss, boost energy, improve brain function, combat depression, lower bad cholesterol and blood pressure, and strengthen the immune system. It is a stable vegetable fat that melts at human body temperature making it an ideal and effective skin cream, moisturizer and stretchmark remover.
