Origin and Elaboration of Pure Cocoa Butter
Pure Cocoa Butter, of vegetable origin, is extracted from the seeds of the cocoa tree, native to Latin America but now cultivated in various parts of the world. In our case, the product originates from Spain.
The production process begins with the collection of cocoa beans, which are then subjected to a fermentation process. Next, the seeds are roasted and pressed, extracting the oil from them, which when cooled solidifies and becomes cocoa butter.
Pure Cocoa Butter has several essential fatty acids, including palmitic acid, stearic acid, oleic acid and linoleic acid, which provide a wide range of benefits for the skin and hair.
