At Anasa Skin, we seek to highlight the richness of Africa's land. We channeled this passion into our product range by carefully selecting key ingredients that are native to our beautiful, diverse continent. Our range includes, natural butter, oils and mineral salts that have been used over generations. 

Cocoa Butter

Native to: Ghana, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Cameroon

Product Containing Cocoa Butter: Cocoa Butter & Argan Oil Body Creme

    More than half of the world's cocoa beans come from West Africa. For centuries now, they have harvested cocoa beans to make cocoa butter (Theobroma Cocoa). This butter is very dense in fatty acids, plumping and nourishing the skin. It also has a rich fat content that forms a protective barrier, locking in moisture and keeping skin looking dewy.  

    Thanks to its natural phytochemical plant compounds, it also helps shave off a couple of years by improving skin's elasticity, improving blood flow, and slowing down skin ageing by guarding it against the sun's harmful rays. Cocoa butter is a wonder potion for smoothing scars, wrinkles, and any other marks.
