Other active constituents :

This butter, filtered to remove the brown color of cocoa, is less rich in polyphenols (catechin, epicatechin) than our raw organic cocoa butter, but it remains rich in interesting active ingredients, in particular:

  • Vitamin E: a natural antioxidant
  • Unsaponifiables including:
    • Phytosterols (beta-sitosterol, stigmasterol, campesterol) : antioxidant, healing, restorative, and soothing action.
    • Squalene: helps regenerate the lipid cement of the stratum corneum (squalene is naturally present in the skin and sebum).

Focus on cocoa unsaponifiables: vegetable oils and butter are mainly composed of fatty acid triglycerides, compounds which are "saponified" to give soap and glycerin when adding a strong base (soda, potash). Unsaponifiables are compounds present in small quantities in oils and butter which do not undergo saponification. They, therefore, remain in the finished soap and give it their properties. These "unsaponifiables" are real cosmetic active ingredients which also enrich your balms, butter, creams ... They are mainly vitamin E (tocopherols, tocotrienols), carotenes, phytosterols, squalene. These compounds have antioxidant, softening, repairing properties ...
