Cocoa Vera Whipped Body Butter
The Cocoa Vera whipped body butter was born at the start of the second pregnancy journey for the creator of the brand. She already knew that Aloe Vera was good for diminishing unwanted spots but was curious what it would do mixed with Cocoa Butter to keep away stretch marks. Before, releasing the product, she tested it on herself every single day for 7.5 months! Take a peek at the unedited stomach in the pregnancy photos.
Cocoa Butter is very common in smoothing scars, stretch marks and wrinkles. It's rich in vitamin E, which helps to improve skin elasticity--soothing fine lines, smoothing skin texture and diminishing dark spots. It is high in fatty acids which provides a protective barrier over the skin to lock in moisture and prevent the skin from drying and peeling. It increases collagen production in the skin which is why it's recommended to use on stretch marks.
This butter is made with an additional real treat because there is Aloe Vera Gel extracted straight from the plant and infused at the bottom of the butter! When using, simply work your way from top to bottom. This butter has a whipped texture, but is a little more firm than the other butters. It definitely will melt instantly in contact with skin! The scent of this butter is chocolate which comes natural from the Cocoa Butter. Our skin care line maintains its true essence by eliminating fillers and fragrances, while giving you 100% of our power packed ingredients. The ingredients combined, take on their own refreshing natural scents, which without fillers are easily able to penetrate your skin without competing with any unnatural ingredients. The two top contributors causing skin irritation that leads to unwanted breakouts are parabens and fragrance. Parabens are used in skincare and cosmetic products to preserve its shelf life. Our products DO NOT contain parabens. All of our butters are unisex.
CAUTION: External Use Only. Discontinue use if irritation or itchiness occurs. Store in a dry and cool place.
The body butter comes in an 8 oz frosted black container with dimensions as followed:
Height: approx. 3.15"
Diameter: approx. 3.66"
Every butter comes with a mini spatula to scoop onto your skin. Research suggests that when using moisturizer in an open container, it's best to use something other than your finger to scoop, so that you’re not adding bacteria into your moisturizer. Bacteria is the leading cause of clogging pores, skin irritation and conditions such as acne, whiteheads, blackheads, pimples and more.

Aloe Vera: This is the ingredient we like to refer to as the "Magic Eraser!" Every blemish, blackhead, burn, stretch mark, acne mark, discoloration needs a little touch of Aloe Vera. It helps to treat, exfoliate, restore, reveal and provide constant nutrition and radiance to the skin.
Virgin (Organic) Unrefined Shea Butter: This is golden! It highly moisturizes the skin. It reduces razor irritation and bumps. It does well in reducing stretch marks, acne and blemishes.
Quick history: Shea butter is extracted from the nuts of a Shea tree found in Africa. It absorbs quickly into the skin as it melts at body temperature. It stores many healing properties that are beneficial to skin issues.
Organic Cocoa Butter Wafers: This is the "Wow" ingredient known to reduce stretch marks and scars! This ingredient is rich in natural plant compounds which helps improves blood flow to the skin and slows skin aging. It protects your skin against damage from the sun's harmful UV rays.
Extra Virgin (Organic) Coconut Oil: aka "Magic Oil"...This oil hydrates skin that keeps it highly moisturized. It protects the skin from harmful bacteria helping to eliminate bumps ( whiteheads and blackheads) and acne. This is caused by a build up of clogged pores. This oil is also great in removing makeup even stubborn mascara.
Sweet Almond Oil: contains a significant amount of vitamin E which keeps your skin cells healthy, protects your skin from UV radiation damage and helps to keep your skin with that glow. The fatty acids in it helps your skin absorb and retain moisture and the vitamin A in it helps to reduce acne.
Jojoba Oil: This oil is full of vitamin B and E. It has the highest level of antioxidants and nutrients. Antioxidants help ward off cell damage by cleaning up waste products in our cells. This oil keeps the skin glowing without clogging pores. It doesn't evaporate like water based moisturizers--which is vital when skin is exposed to the environment aka "germs". Although, it's a light oil, it quickly absorbs into the skin--deeply penetrating to soothe and soften the skin while leaving a healthy glow.
Vitamin E Oil: helps to fight off free radicals, and helps protect the skin from damage. It helps to replenish lipids and great for fine lines. Additionally, vitamin E has moisturizing and healing benefits, and helps to strengthen skin barrier function. Vitamin E is also a natural anti- inflammatory, so it can be soothing and help calm the skin, helping to keep it clear, smooth and supple.
What is Body Butter?
Body butter is high conditioning moisturizer made with combining all natural oils and butters. In this case, we've whipped it for a lengthy amount of time, to have a light, fluffy texture. Applying a little goes a long way. We wanted our product to be 100% at its natural state. We did not want to dilute or take away from any of the nutrients the Shea butter and oils provide. This whipped butter is FREE of parabens, phthalates, mineral oil and any other preservatives that don't belong on your skin. Vegan-friendly and not tested on animals.
In the Winter Season, the body butters are going to dry a little harder than in the hotter season months. The whipped consistency remains and will melt on your skin when applied. One way you can ensure that it stays soft/moist through the winter is by storing it in a warm temperature place. In the Spring/Summer Season, the body butter will stay soft. However, if it’s an extremely hot day, it can melt. Keep it stored in a cool temperature place. If it does melt, simply put it in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to thicken up. The cool thing about whipped body butter is it always returns back to its original consistency and maintains the whipped texture that melts on your skin.
