Cocoa Butter has been used for ages as the solid to make white chocolate, as well as other chocolate bars. It holds together at room temperature providing that ideal candy bar crispness. It has a mild chocolate taste & flavour, and carries only trace amounts of caffeine.

Elephant brand Cocoa Butter has a clear pale yellow colour. It is obtained by traditional pressing of cocoa liquor made from select Ghana beans that are roasted, hulled and milled to perfection. Stringent quality parameters make it the choice of discerning chocolatiers and it is appreciated as best over the years by international chocolate and confectionery companies world over.

In addition to its use in chocolate formulation and confectionery, it is also used as a beauty care product. It has antioxidants properties which prevent rancidity (giving it a shelf life of years), and melts onto the skin in a velvety smooth, pleasing way. Cocoa butter is perfect for salves, lotions, lip balms, and certain types of make up.
