  • Rubber spatula
  • 16 oz. glass jar

Cocoa butter is known for its nourishing and hydrating abilities on the skin, and it's a common ingredient used in lotions and soaps. One way to make cocoa butter even more luxurious is to whip it. Whipped cocoa butter turns the rich cream into a soft, decadent balm that can be used directly on your skin to soothe dryness and irritation. Once the cocoa butter is whipped, you can store it in a glass container in your refrigerator.

Place the cocoa butter into a large mixing bowl.

Beat the cocoa butter using an electric mixer on high for 10 minutes. This will incorporate air into the cocoa butter, making it fluffy.


Spoon the whipped cocoa butter into the glass container, using a rubber spatula to scrape the side of the bowl.


Seal the jar with its lid and store it in a refrigerator for future use.
