Cocoa butter has been called the ultimate moisturizer, and has been used to keep skin soft and supple for centuries. It is one of the most stable, highly concentrated natural fats known, and melts at body temperature so that it is readily absorbed into the skin. Cocoa butter is often recommended for treatment of skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. When applied topically, it creates a barrier between sensitive skin and the environment and also helps retain moisture. In addition, cocoa butter contains cocoa mass polyphenol (CMP), a substance that inhibits the production of the immuno globulin IgE. IgE is known to aggravate symptoms of both dermatitis and asthma.
Pregnant women have long used to cocoa butter formulations to prevent and treat stretch marks, but this pleasant-smelling substance is added to countless other topical preparations as well.

Shipping is based on weight, size and destination of item. We ship USPS unless otherwise stated. Anything that is under 13 ounces we ship first class (keep in mind the packaging is also included in that total), we always try to use a priority flat rate box when it is possible and when neither of those are applicable we ship regular priority. We will always refund any shipping overcharge greater than $1.00. Generally purchasing more than one item at a time adds even more value.
We will be carrying all of the supplies for candle and soap making, I am in the process of getting them listed. If you are interested in something that you do not see please contact us, most likely we carry it, and I will then get it listed promptly for you. Thank you for visiting our shop.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
I ship using USPS predominantly and UPS occasionally, usually only large, heavy packages or items that have to ship ground. I try very hard to ship all orders the next business day after the order is made, and payment received.. (this does not include custom orders). Occasionally there is a delay, but I always keep you updated.
Please make payment upon purchase, or you can pay with a check or money order, but please be aware that this slows shipment down considerably.
