Cocoa Absolute (France)
Botanical Name: Theobroma cacao
Cocoa is the dried and entirely fermented seed of the cacao tree. Botanic Universe's Cocoa Absolute is solvent extracted from high quality standardized cocoa bean powder.
Cocoa butter may be applied to the skin to treat wrinkles and to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy.
In manufacturing, cocoa butter is used for suppositories and for ointment bases.
Cocoa contains a variety of chemicals, including antioxidants called flavonoids. It is not clear how these might work in the body, but they appear to cause relaxation of veins.
