Cocoa Butter

Cocoa butter is used in chocolate, ointments, toiletries and many more of our favourite things. Its velvety texture and delicious fragrance make it perfect for skin products. After all, who can resist that rich chocolatey smell? The cocoa bean, from which cocoa butter is derived, only grows around the equator, like most of us it enjoys warmer climes, and today nearly 70% of all the cocoa beans produced hail from sunny West Africa.

For thousands of years, chocolate has been considered a food of the Gods due to its luxurious smell, taste and texture
Cocoa butter creates a seal on your skin, creating a barrier against nasty environmental pollutants and the aging effects of the weather
Many people believe cocoa butter contains coconut oil, but this simply isn’t true. They are, however, often used together to create a delicious tropical smell

Benefits in Facemasks

Cocoa butter is a fabulous moisturiser as it gets deep down into your skin, penetrating the top layer, to truly nourish your skin. But there is more to this mighty bean than simple moisturiser. Cocoa butter also contains antioxidants to kill off those nasty free radicals which, among other things, age the skin by destroying skin cells.

Some clever scientists have also found that cocoa butter can help against skin problems such as psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis. And it’s not just good for your skin, your hair can benefit too. Not only does cocoa butter help moisturise your hair from root to tip, it also help alleviate an itchy scalp and could even prevent chemical damage from excess drying.

Mud Masks

Mud within face masks acts as an emulsifier penetrating skin pore deep to absorb excess sebum and other impurities deep within pores. When you wash the mud mask off, you also wash away the dirt, grime, oil and dead skin. Mud also contains huge numbers of minerals which nourish your skin, leaving your face feeling fresh, clean and vibrant.

Self Heat Masks

Applied to damp skin, these ultra hydrating masks instantly self-heat to open pores, whilst the clays gently draw out impurities. One of the most relaxing masks you’ll ever use!
