Native to the foothills of the Andes in South America, the cocoa bean has been prized since the beginning of time. Aztec emperor Moctezuma II refused to drink anything other than chocolate in a golden goblet, and cocoa beans were once used as a common currency. But it’s not only chocolate itself that’s adored the world over, cocoa butter too is valued, for its beauty benefits.
In Africa, women have been using it for centuries to nourish their skin and help with stretch marks, as it’s naturally rich in antioxidants. Inspired by the natural benefits of the cocoa bean, Palmer’s has harnessed the power of it to develop its own iconic Cocoa Butter Formula range, using only the richest and best quality beans.
