Our Organic Cocoa Powder is a lovely herb that is perfect for any kind of bath and body product. First of all, cacao beans are rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, E and pantothenic acid. Plus, they are rich in magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, manganese and potassium.  Furthermore, this herb contains caffeine, which is actually beneficial to the skin.

So, cocoa powder is already winning on its beneficial vitamins and minerals for your skin, but you must remember that this is basically powdered chocolate! How does chocolate lip balm sound to you? Chocolate facial masks? Yummy!  I mean, we used this powder in Hot Fudge Brownies Cold Process Soap Recipe,  in our Chocolate Sugar Scrub Recipe, and in our Gourmet Chocolate Bath Melts Recipe. All of these turned out perfectly and were great for skin!

The Vanilla Powder is a unique ingredient for cosmetics with a scent that is absolutely mouth watering. This white colored herb won’t alter the color of your product, but it will add a strong dose of sweet vanilla goodness. The scent is so strong and smells exactly how you would expect vanilla to smell. Thus this scent is strong, true, natural, and perfect for bath and body products. We have used this fantastic bath and body additive in the  Vanilla Sugar Scrub Cubes Recipe, the Natural Vanilla Body Powder Recipe, and a few other recipes. All of them had that amazing vanilla scent mixed in with their fragrance oils that added to the existing scent to create something even better!
