Fresh from the kitchen at Hothouse Botanicals is a new limited edition body butter that is perfect for Valentine’s Day! We are proud to introduce Chocolate Almond Truffle Body Butter, which contains the same luxurious organic ingredients as our other body butters, but to this one we have added Organic Sapote Fruit Seed Oil (with a natural almond scent) and Cocoa Absolute (with a delicious chocolate liquor aroma). It will definitely make your mouth water!
- Cocoa Absolute (Theobroma cacao) is an exotic natural oil extracted from cocoa bean powder and has a rich, delicious chocolate liquor aroma. Its botanical name translates to Theobroma (“food of the gods”) cacao. Cocoa contains valuable anti-oxidants and promotes softer, more youthful looking skin. Anti-oxidants aid in protecting cells, collagen, and elastin from damage caused by free radicals in our environment. Cocoa has also been used throughout history as an aphrodisiac, probably due to the positive effects of flavonols, which are active constituents naturally found in cacao.
- Organic Sapote Fruit Seed Oil (Pouteria sapota) is an orange colored oil that is cold pressed from the black seeds of the Sapote fruit. Sapote oil contains a natural almond scent, similar to marzipan. Mamey sapote is rich in vitamins A, C, plant proteins, carbohydrates, iron, potassium, and calcium. Sapote oil has deeply moisturizing properties that are beneficial for dry skin.
