Cocoa Butter
We have combined the two beautiful butter along with the proper oils to ensure moisture and skin repair. Take the time to feed your skin.

 Shea Butter

Shea butter is a great moisturizing and antioxidant. These two properties work together to help your skin generate healthy new cells.

Your body is constantly making new skin cells and getting rid of dead skin cells. You actually get rid of anywhere between 30,000 to 40,000 old skin cells each day.

Dead skin cells sit on the top. New skin cells form at the bottom of the upper layer of skin (epidermis).

With the right moisture balance on the surface of your skin, you’ll have fewer dead skin cells in the way of fresh cell regeneration in the epidermis.

Cocoa Butter
 
Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, which is why it’s often touted for its ability to hydrate and nourish and improve elasticity. The fat in cocoa butter forms a protective barrier over skin to hold in moisture. Cocoa butter is also rich in natural plant compounds called phytochemicals.

Cocoa butter  penetrates not only the  top layer of skin but the dermis layer as well where the body is more  able to retain the moisture. It will smooth out the tone and texture of it, making scars look less noticeable.
