Our Cocoa Select CO2 Extract is highly aromatic and possesses a delicious cocoa aroma that we find to be even more delightful than that of our premium quality cocoa butters.
Cocoa Select CO2 Extract can be used to impart your finest natural products with a beautiful cocoa aroma while simultaneously enriching your product with its nutritive and skin soothing benefits.
Our Cocoa Select CO2 Extract is produced by CO2 supercritical extraction of cocoa beans, Theobroma cacao, resulting in a beautifully aromatic, nutritive extract.
Although our Cocoa Select CO2 Extract is best classified as a CO2 Select, it is rich in saturated fatty acids and possesses a thicker consistency similar to CO2 Totals that are abundant in fatty acids.
Our Cocoa Select CO2 Extract is solid at room temperature and is tan/caramel in color. It melts easily with gentle warming to 105 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius).
