If you have been on Nat Mane‘s blog or my twitter account (@naturalnigerian) recently, you may have read that I now offer cocoa butter for sale. 

Cocoa Butter

The day I finally got my order in, I was as excited as a kid. You see, I had never ever ever seen or used raw cocoa butter before. My experience with it has been limited to finding it in imported creams and lotions. 

First of all, cocoa butter smells divine – like chocolate. I had done my research and knew it was a hard butter but was still surprised at just how hard it was. If you thought that Shea butter was difficult to spread, wait till you experience raw cocoa butter. Anway, I made a quick basic whipped butter with it (and Shea Butter and coconut oil) and used it on my daughter – from head to toe. She declared that she would smell delicious all day! Of course spreadability was no longer an issue…

Cocoa Pods - My Grandfather had a Cocoa tree. As children, we would pluck Cocoa pods off the tree and lick that white covering over the seeds.

The cocoa butter I carry is export quality – y’all know I don’t play with standards – and I am happy to say it is quite affordable. I have not settled on a unit of measurement for final sale but 1kg comes to about N1,500. It will most probably be sold in smaller quantities though. 

I have heard people say that Cocoa butter makes them dark. My question to them is – were you using just cocoa butter or cocoa butter mixed with other things? I am fair complexioned, have been using my whipped butters for about 2 weeks and haven’t noticed a change. Anyway, if you decide not to use it for your skin, by all means use it on your hair. 

I won’t go into all the details about what Cocoa butter is all about in this post – a post dedicated to that will come soon.

Special thanks to Nat. Mane for putting the word out there!

Thanks for sharing! I don’t find Shea butter hard at all. There are different grades (Grade A – Grade F) Grade A spreads easily. We get Shea butter from a fairtrade co-op in Burkina Faso and it is divine. I’ve got to try your cocoa butter!

Please try the Nigerian Shea Butter as well. I don’t sell any but can put you in touch with someone who does. Hmm, didn’t know about the different grades. You’ve given me something to read up on!

Please do you know the ‘native’ or yoruba name for cocoa butter?
The last time I was in Nigeria, I was searching everywhere for it in the market, but the market women did not really understand what I wanted.
I figured that if I had also asked them for shea butter and not ori, they would have reacted the same.
In case I do not get any I’ll definitely order some from you the next time I’m in Lagos.

I really don’t know the name. I am told that the closest is to ask for Ekpo cocoa which translates to cocoa oil. Naturally, this can’t be the real name for cocoa butter. Let’s leave it open and see if anyone that reads this post can help out with an answer.

Thank you, at least that’s a step further. I might be in Nigeria in May. When I’m sure, I’ll pre-order some from you :)

Thanks :)
I already knew that, because that’S the only thing the market women understood. But I was also looking for cocoa butter, but could not get any because they did not understand the English name and I did not know the Yoruba name.

cocoa pods on thier own smells absolutely delicious! I can only assume the butter would smell just as delish! good job on adding an extra product, would love to know the results on hair and skin. We hear more about shea butter than we do on cocoa butter.

Never used cocoa butter on either my skin or hair. I heard these “butters” clog our skin pores cos they’re too heavy and the only natural product good for the skin is jojoba oil.
I’ll try it on my hair and hopefully it’ll work for me. Using only shea butter an coconut oil on my hair now.

Comedogenicity is a valid concern. Taking risk factors into account means that some people are more affected than others though…Here’s a good link for checking the comedogenicity of your oils, butters and other ingredients. However their claim that only jojoba oil is good is not so. Jojoba is the oil that comes closest to resembling our sebum – which is pretty remarkable but doesn’t make it the only natural product out there that is good for skin or hair.

Thanks for raising this point.

Hello Chinasa, there is no scientific proof that it can do so. However, there have been oral reports from people that they have experienced some success in this matter. You have to decide for yourself if you would rather go with science or anecdotal evidence.
