What an amazing product.

I have usually stuck to items containing coco butter and I never really liked them. Yesterday while I was out shopping I picked up pure coco butter. I love it.

The smell is great, my skin is so smooth. The only downside is I feel a bit greasy!

Cocoa butter, the real one, that comes in chunks, that actually "melts" on your hands, it's amazing for skin scars, acne, and spots...I've been using it for a while, and it's amazingly not greasy at all, and it moisturizes elbows, legs, heels (not high heels ) and your face.. But it's really different than the cocoa butter that you buy at drug stores...health stores carries them all around.

Alejandro,

I too bought the pure one. It comes in a nice jar and its a bit rough, the minute it gets into the palm of your hands it begins to melt. I love the feel of it. And when I read about its Vit E I smiled. I had surgery and have a huge scar down the middle of my chest so I'm assuming it will help minimize that!

Definitely. I used to underestimate the power of real Cocoa Butter, until I started using it

I love the smell of it.

I use it for moisturizer in the wintertime. In the summer my skin takes care of itself pretty well; I use a light aloe-and-glycerine gel, but in the winter, I have to break out the big guns.

A tiny dab of it does seem to help fade acne scars, too.

Make sure you don't buy Palmer's Cocoa Butter. It isn't real.

I prefer African shea butter myself.

Cocoa Butter smells like chocolate.

I use the Queen Helene brand. It comes in a big tube kind of like a chapstick, only bigger. One tube costs like $2 and lasts for ages and ages and ages.

okay so I can find this cocoa butter at a health food store? Also does it makes your skin greasy? Cause I've used some moisterizers before and they make my face break out cause of the oil.. I use Mango butter on my legs, etc.. and I love the way it smells!

I found the Coco Butter in my local pharmacy but it was in the "African Health Section". Makes me wonder why. I looked for it under the body creams section and found nothing, but when I went to the area that sells the jerri curl and reverse perm for african hair, it was there.

I find the scent of it just wonderful. Its a nice smell, like the Carribiean.

Yes I have and use the mango butter when I get out of the shower cause you're suppose to put it on when your skin is moist/damp
