Moisturizing Cocoa Butter
Because of its natural make-up and its nutrient and fatty acid content, cocoa butter is amazing for dry skin and can actually penetrate further than the top layer of the skin, meaning it moisturizes deep-down and really nourishes the skin.Cocoa butter contains a number of different antioxidants which can kill-off a wide range of different free-radicals which are formed by exposure to pollutants such as car fumes, pesticides, and tobacco smoke.
These free-radicals destroy cells, and when these are skin cells you begin to age. Your skin wrinkles and dries up, and you begin to take on the look of somebody years older than you are. They do this through a process known as oxidation (a good way to think of it is to consider how iron rusts when it oxidises), and antioxidants can prevent it. They neutralize the free-radicals, and prevent your skin cells from being destroyed.
Cocoa butter is known to help reduce stretch marks. There are no guarantees, but many women have claimed that regular use of cocoa butter was what helped prevent stretch marks.
Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, meaning it can penetrate deep-down into the skin and hydrate from within. Cocoa butter can also be helpful for many skin problems like eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and skin irritation.
