Who doesn't love chocolate? Well, I have actually met a few people that are allergic to chocolate, which I think would be a terrible affliction to have. I personally love chocolate. Dark, rich, 85% cacao bean bars. Those are my favorite. No funky stuff added. No milk. Barely any sugar. Just like munching on a cacao bean. My love of raw chocolate is what introduced me to cacao butter. When you make raw chocolate at home you use cacao powder, cacao butter (we say cocoa you say cacao...tomato tomatoe), a little bee pollen, some peppermint essential oil, maybe some raw honey and you have crazy homemade raw chocolate. Cocoa butter gives raw chocolate the creamy texture and it has an amazing aroma. These same benefits are what cocoa butter does for skin care! Makes our Black Seed Oil Vitamin C Anti-Aging Cream smell so good you want to eat it.
Aside from the nice, smooth chocolatey smell that cocoa butter gives our anti-aging cream, it also adds moisture and anti-oxidants to the cream. Cocoa butter is an off-white to tan colored natural butter. It is hard when cold but will soften and melt when applied to your skin. The cocoa butter that we use at Susie Q Skin is not deodorized. That means that it has not been processed to remove all the smell and flavor. We believe in using the most pure forms of oils and butters possible, and this means that you have a more pure product for your skin.
Susie of Susie Q Skin has spent 16 years researching raw materials and skin care ingredients. During her time as Director of Operations of a private label skin care lab she encountered high quality ingredients, and also ingredients that had been adulterated and diluted of all nutrients. When Susie launched her line one commitment was that Susie Q Skin products would only use the highest quality ingredients possible. The cocoa butter that we use in all our products is un-refined, organic, fair trade cocoa butter. The quality of ingredients creates the quality of skin care, and that is our priority. You can feel good about all the ingredients used in Susie Q Skin products.
