cocoa butter makes an excellent skin moisturizer, plus it does more than just hydrate the skin — it helps actually heal it from the inside out too. it’s a great source of natural antioxidants that are found in cocoa beans (the same kinds found in real, dark chocolate that are tied to benefits like heart health and improved cognitive functioning). saturated fats are especially beneficial for healing dry, cracked skin because they’re easily absorbed and remain on the skin for hours.
cocoa butter contains compounds called cocoa mass polyphenols, which some studies have found can help diminish signs of aging, plus soothe sensitive skin suffering from dermatitis or rashes. polyphenols are types of antioxidants that promote health both internally when eaten and when used topically on the skin. cocoa’s polyphenols have been found to fight various chronic diseases, degeneration of the skin, sensitivities and even cell mutations.
research shows that it’s polyphenols have several positive indicators for skin health, including improved skin elasticity and skin tone, better collagen retention/production, and better hydration. when comparing cocoa butter to commercially available products, both showed positive results, but only cocoa butter is free from potentially harmful or irritating ingredients.

queen of hydration and cleansing
coconut oil, or copra oil, is an edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of mature coconuts harvested from the coconut palm (cocos nucifera). the coconut tree is considered the “tree of life” in much of southeast asia, India, the philippines and other tropical locations. and today, there are over 1,500 studies proving the health benefits of coconut oil.
coconut oil contains three unique fatty acids that are responsible for its various health benefits: Lauric acid, Capric acid, and Caprylic acid. these are some of the rarest substances found in nature and the reason why this oil is so beneficial. lauric acid has a particular structure that allows the body to absorb it easily. once absorbed, it morphs into monolaurin, found in human breast milk, and coconut milk and oil. monolaurin is known for its antiviral, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties (helps to kill epstein-barr virus).
some of the top uses and benefits of coconut oil include: eczema and psoriasis treatment, fight inflammation, fight acne, balance hormones, kills candida, improves digestion, moisturizes skin, reduces cellulite, decreases wrinkles and age spots, balances blood sugar and improve energy, cancer protection and defense.
