We are ecstatic with this new batch of Cocao Absolute! Thick and rich with the deepest dark chocolaty aroma we have ever sourced. The color of this delicious absolute is dark-dark brown with a reddish-rusty hue. Truly an exceptional premium quality not to be missed.
Our hexane free cocao absolute is a chocolate lover's decadent delight. Warm sensuous rich aromatic notes stimulate an emotional sense of wellbeing to decrease anxiety, promote clarity of mind, relax muscles, and resonates through history as an aphrodisiac. It smells absolutely fantastic, nothing like the creamy 'cocao butter' aroma present in Co2 extracts. Our new Cocao absolute is extracted from the actual beans, not an extraction of the butter, and as such carries the deep, rich, unmistakable aroma of dark chocolate.
We are proud to offer this Cocao Absolute ethical farmed by Fair Trade practice from the Ivory Coast (Ghana). We feel it vitally important to source cacao by sound ethical means of Fair Trade and steer away from other sources using child and slave labor. When buying our Cocao Absolute it is priced accordingly that in turn helps to sustain local workers of the exquisite raw material sent to France for hexane free extraction.
Because of the anti-oxidant and antibacterial properties of Theobroma cacao we highly recommend its use in anti-aging skin care formulations, scrubs, body wraps and facial masks.
