Why Skin Loves Shea Butter & Cocoa Butter

Cocoa & Shea Butter Blog Hero

As an esthetician for over 10 years, I always flip over a product and read the ingredient list before I put anything on my face or body.  I created Zoey koko with the belief that moms, aunties and grandmothers were doing the same when buying body care products for their loved one.  That’s why I made sure that we didn’t skimp on the good stuff when formulating our products.

Many bath and body products are laden with alcohol and other drying ingredients that are irritating to sensitive skin.  So I decided to make something better, because well, why not?! I made sure all of our body butters, bubble bars and whipped soaps are chock full of the most nourishing nut butters to keep skin hydrated and healthy.  Not just any nut butter though – I made sure to use the best.

Enter, Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter.

So why exactly are these nut butters the MVP’s of skin care?

Dry skin is no match for the creamy and moisturizing properties that both Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter deliver. Both butters provide an excellent source of hydration to the skin’s barrier by containing healthy fats that make skin jump for joy.  Because both of these butters are all natural, they are a great choice for sensitive skin as they are loaded with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. And here’s a fun fact for ya– did you know Cocoa Butter is derived from the cocoa bean, the same origin as chocolate? No wonder I’ve been obsessed with it since I discovered it!

Don’t take my word for how amazing these ingredients are, just see for yourself.  Our Unicorn Body Butter, Watermelon Whipped Soap and Black Raspberry Bubble are some of the products that are chock full of Shea and Cocoa Butter.

If you remember the Almond Joy and Mounds candy commercial from 1989 you’ll know that the catchy “sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t” slogan was on repeat in the brains of millions.  Well, to that I say, if you must feel like a nut, choose a nut butter like Cocoa or Shea!
