Cocoa butter is one of the most versatile ingredients in beauty. We can use it to moisturize our hair, treat and heal the cracked and rough parts of our skin, and we can even work into our shower and skincare routines.
It’s so common that sometimes we sleep on it! What else can be done with this sweet-scented butter? A lot! But sometimes appreciating it isn’t about revolutionizing it, but going back to basics and loving it for what it is.
That’s why we’re always going to love a good body balm made from cocoa butter. No gimmicks, no exotic ingredients—just a solid body cream or butter with all the moisturizing properties you need.
Get your skin feeling just like butta baby! Here are 3 creams to try for the absolute smoothest skin.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of luxury? Personally, cashmere and other lush fabrics are at the top of my life. They’re so nicely made that you can just feel how expensive it is. That’s pretty much what this whipped body cream does to your skin—makes it feel rich, opulent, and of the highest quality.
Blended with cocoa butter, apricot oil, olive wood, and a subtle coconut sweetness, this cream is everything your skin could want. With just a slight rub between your hand and your skin, this luxurious moisturizer melts right into your skin, leaving it kissably soft.
Whipped with cocoa and shea butter, aloe vera juice, and tons of other plant-derived ingredients, this thick and velvety body butter absorbs quickly and guarantees 12 whole hours of soft, deeply moisturized skin.
Plus, it comes in a variety of scents that’ll make you smell like a whole snack! From cinnamon roll to lemon creme cake, this rich body cream is just what you need to feel, smell, and even look sweet and supple.
Mutha Body Butter, $45
Crafted with 100% natural ingredients, this body butter is made with the ultimate trifecta of body butter—cocoa, shea, and mango—while also being filled to the brim with vitamins, fatty acids, and pure seed extracts.
And unlike its other bodycare counterparts that focus solely on keeping your skin soft (which is awesome, too!), this bad boy is clinically proven to improve skin tone and discoloration of stretch marks and skin firmness.
