Not only does it smell delicious, but cocoa butter does wonders for the skin! The antioxidant qualities of cocoa butter can help to prevent signs of aging, and the antioxidants can also help to protect the skin from environmental, internal, and external forces that can cause irritation or damage to the skin. We just got in a new batch of massage lotions made with cocoa lotion! Be sure to check out our Cocoa-Comfort Massage Lotion by Biotone. This delicious Cocoa-Comfort Massage Lotion is made with cocoa butter, avocado, aloe vera, and soy oils that provide lasting work-ability with a smooth glide and silky texture.

Yummy Skincare! The Beautifying Benefits of Cocoa Butter

Looking for a skincare product that's so delicious you kind of just want to eat it? I'm sure your clients are too, and while I definitely do not recommend eating our cocoa butter products right out of the jar (please don't), I have a great list of its beautifying benefits that will make your clients keep coming back for seconds (to put on their skin, of course).

Cocoa butter is made from whole cocoa beans that are fermented, roasted, and then separated from their hulls. The remaining residue is.. voila.. cocoa butter! Check out some of the beautifying benefits of cocoa butter below as well as products we have for your spa that your clients will love!

Hydrating


Due to its fatty acid and nutrient content, cocoa butter is great for moisturizing dry skin and keeping it that way. Are you in need of a new retail product you can suggest to your clients? You should try out our Queen Helene Cocoa Face and Body Butter Cream! Aside form the attractive packaging, your clients will fall in love with the way it smells and makes their skin feel!





Soothing


Cocoa butter is known for its healing properties because it's so rich in nutrients. It can be helpful for your clients with irritated skin or even eczema. Try adding some cocoa butter into your next facial! Our Cocoa Butter Facial Scrub by Queen Helene is a great exfoliate to incorporate into your skin services (I told you their packaging was cute)!





Healing

The healing properties of cocoa butter are amazing! Due to its high antioxidant content, cocoa butter has the ability to greatly reduce the appearance of scars, minor scratches, and even stretch marks. 

Healthy Hair



It's not just for your skin, either! Cocoa butter is hydrating for dry and damaged hair, and it's also great for strengthening it. Incorporate a Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning Treatment into your salon services using our Organic Pure Cocoa Butter. Your clients will appreciate the scent, as well as their new, healthy hair.

Create your own Spa Treatments with Spa Pantry!

A little experimentation will always help in the Spa industry.  Mixing and matching certain butters, creams and oils will be the craze at your spa...if you get it right.  For instance, something as basic as mixing Spa Pantry's Whipped Cocoa butter and Body Concepts Aloe Vera will give you a creation that you can use as part of your services!
By mixing these two items you get a great moisturizer with so many benefits.   

Aloe Vera: 
  • contains antioxidants vitamins A, C and E which calms the skin from irritation an inflammation
  • helps with dermatitis or psoriasis
  • it helps with wound healing 
Mixed with the cocoa butter, you will have a fast-absorbing mixture that retains body moisture and softens the skin.  The reason for this is that cocoa butter melts at body temperature, so the moment of application is the moment the skin will absorb the product.  Cocoa butter leaves a protective barrier that will help protect the skin from the harm of everyday life.   

  You can even use this product as part of your massage services.  Research has indicated that massaging the skin with cocoa butter can help boost the immune system and relieve stress.  I wouldn't mind getting a massage with this lotion.  Along with all of the topical benefits of mixing these to items together is the benefit of using it for aromatherapy, the sweet smelling aroma will definitely add to the massage experience.
   Be bold and experiment,  Cocoa Butter and Aloe Vera are just two items you can experiment with.  Visit Pure Spa Direct to see what other items we have for you to use for your secret recipe.
