Whether you realize it or not, you’ve probably eaten cocoa butter many times in your life — plus smeared it onto your skin. Cocoa butter (sometimes called theobroma oil) is a natural, meltable oil extracted the cocoa bean. It’s the fat source used to make chocolate, even healthy chocolate, responsible for giving it its alluring, melt-in-your-mouth, silky feel.
Plus, just like other skin-loving sources of healthy fatty acids — such as raw shea butteror coconut oil — cocoa butter is great for naturally healing dry, sensitive skin. Real cocoa butter is completely edible, and has a faint taste and smell similar to dark chocolate! Dr. Axe, Food is medicine
