So, what is kakaobutter?

Kakaobutter, also known as cocoa butter, is a natural, edible fat extracted from the cocoa bean. This pale-yellow, creamy substance is a common ingredient in chocolate and is used to give it its signature smooth, velvety texture. Kakaobutter is high in saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids, making it an ideal ingredient for baking, cooking, and skincare. It is also rich in antioxidants, which help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. In addition to its many culinary uses, kakaobutter is also a popular ingredient in cosmetics and is often used in lotions, creams, and other skincare products to moisturize and soothe the skin.
