Cocoa butter is the oil extracted from cocoa beans, used as an emollient in skincare and cosmetics and with properties similar to those of other non-fragrant plant oils. Cocoa butter contains various antioxidants that are related to catechines and epicatechines, as well as others that are related to procyanidines and polyphenols.

Research has shown that cocoa butter helps improve skin elasticity and promotes collagen production when applied to a model of ex vivo human skin and when compared with a commercially available product.
