SHEA BUTTER VS COCOA BUTTER – WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
Have you noticed that many skincare products contain either Shea butter or cocoa butter ? Many have wondered, “what is the difference between these two natural ingredients, and is one better than the other” ? No need to wonder any further! In the article below is a detailed explanation of both products.
The key difference between Shea butter and cocoa butter is where it originates from. Cocoa butter is extracted from cocoa beans, while Shea butter is extracted from the nuts of the Shea tree. Both trees grow naturally in different areas of the world. The cocoa tree, also known as (cacao tree), is native to the tropical regions of South and Central America, while the Shea tree grows only in Africa. Both Shea and cocoa butter are natural fats. They have slightly different properties, but their uses are similar.
Both Shea and cocoa butter are extracts from the fruit of their respective trees. This is done through pressure, but in different ways. Shea nuts are lightly boiled and then sun-dried prior to grinding into a paste. The fat is then extracted from the paste and turned into butter through churning. Cocoa butter is removed from the beans by the use of an expeller, a hydraulic press or extrusion.
In the Beauty industry , you can find these ingredients in lotions, soaps, creams, and cosmetics. However, most of the products in the beauty Industry that contain these ingredients are not natural.
