Cacao Butter For Skin

Cacao butter is the fat source that gives chocolate it’s signature, melt-in-your-mouth consistency.

The certified-organic cacao butter from Wilderness Family Naturals is simply delightful. It smells deeply of rich chocolate, yet is a light beige color.

The “by-product” of making raw cacao powder, cacao butter is the oil that is pressed out of the cacao nib. WFN’s Cacao Butter is unrefined and is never exposed to chemicals or solvents. It is neither roasted nor exposed to high heat, so it is truly raw. It’s excellent for cooking and slathering on your skin.

Using cacao butter for skin will reap you 2 benefits:

Your skin will be soft and silky, and you’ll also smell like irresistible chocolate!

Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a heavy bottomed sauce pan or water bath over low heat.
  2. As soon as the ingredients start to melt, remove from heat, and transfer to the bowl of a stand up mixer with a whisk attachment. Alternatively, you can use a hand mixer.
  3. Put the bowl in refrigerator for 40-50 minutes. You want the oils just to begin to solidify. Note the color: the mixture will change color from clear to opaque, and become lighter.
  4. Whip with the whisk attachment (or hand mixer), scraping down sides, for about 5 minutes, or until it resembles whipped cream.
  5. Transfer to small Mason jars.
  6. Keep at room temperature for about 2 months.
Recipe Notes
  • If the oils don't change consistency for a while once you start whisking, the mixture might not be cold enough. Place it in refrigerator for a few more minutes and try again.
  • I use beeswax in the summer only. It helps the whipped body butter to keep its fluffy consistency longer.
  • I use refined beeswax because unrefined wax smells a little too strong for me. You can use your preferred beeswax.

    I made this today, following the recipe exactly, and holy wow! The smell and feel of this is truly luxurious. I can’t wait to take a shower and slather my skin with this body butter! Thank you for such a simple recipe!

        Hi Jessie! I’m glad you finally got it to whip! 🙂 I’ve made this exact recipe and am still using it after showering. I love the feel and smell! I used WFN’s cocoa butter, and I had no problems getting it to whip. Mine also was not greasy. It’s very thick, but it does absorb into my skin. Did you use WFN’s cocoa butter?

    Hi Val,
    I have been making whipped white chocolate body butter for my friends for a few years using only 50/50 natural cacao butter chunks and organic, unrefined coconut oil. My friends love it, but my skin is sensitive to coconut oil and peels off wherever it is applied (I actually have to use gloves just to make the butter). What else could I substitute in an equal portion that would garner the same wonderful feel and delectable smell? I’m open to any of your suggestions. Thank you in advance for your help!

      Hi, Jessica! Thank you for your question. You can try substituting another carrier oil such as almond oil, jojoba oil, or olive oil. Shea butter may also be a suitable replacement. Depending on the consistency of the finished product when using a substitute oil, you may need to cut the amount of oil or add additional cacao butter to the mix.

    The label says Whipped Body Butter with Cocoa Butter but the blog seems to be about cacao butter. Is there a difference between cocoa butter and cacao butter? I’ve used both in skin care products but I would love to know if one is better for certain uses than the other.

      Great question, Christina! The terms are interchangeable. Frankly, we normally would have used “cacao butter” on the image but failed to do so in this case, for whatever reason. Thank you for asking! 🙂

    I made this today and while it’s still lovely stuff, it seemed to… seize… like when water gets into chocolate. When I whipped it it looked like whipped cream but underneath it was quite hard. I have to melt a chunk on my hand before rubbing it in. Still works a treat, just awkward to use this way. I remelted it and had another go at whipping it for not as long but the result was the same.

      The seizing didn’t happen for me, but the butter did get hard whenever my house was cool. So, next time I’ll add less beeswax.

    Hi there WFN
    Do you know what I could do or add to the cocoa butter to stop it hardening after whipping in cold conditions. I had a beautiful creamy consistency which became a bit to hard after a few hours.

    I would imagine less beeswax (or none) would help as beeswax is added to recipes like because of its ability to harden.

    Hum, love this stuff and mine hardened. Gonna try without bees wax next time. Too bad as beeswax came from put back, where home farmer has hives and honey.

    This looks so great! I was wondering – since my cocoa butter is in big chunks, could you give us measurements in weight instead of volume? Maybe I should be able to figure that out myself… feeling technically challenged. 🙂

    I’ve overwhipped the butter and it looks like overwhipped cream 🙁 do you by any chance know if I can melt it and do it again? I’ve used cacao butter and coconut oil, it feels quite solid

      Yes, you can re-melt and try again. No worries! Use a bit less beeswax if it’s too solid. Hope that helps!

    Wow, it looks delicious to eat, took a few rounds to get it soft, I used almond oil instead of coconut oil and added lemongrass essential oil, which cancelled out the cocoa-y smell, but smells nice and clean for my clients hands and feet!Thank you

    I’ve made something similar for surgical scars, using frankincense, lavender, and tea tree, no beeswax, and it is HARD. Blended shea, and cocoa butters with a bit of sweet almond oil, hoping that whipping will keep it softer? As it is now (NOT whipped) I have to melt it in my hand first, before applying….suggestions?
