descriptionNOTE: Large quantities/sizes of any product may have to be special ordered. If that's the case, customers must allow a minimum of 10 business days for a new supply to arrive at our warehouse. Some products could arrive sooner, some later. Cancellations are not allowed because an item becomes 'out of stock' soon after the customer places the order, the 'out of stock' product will ship as soon as it arrives at our warehouse. What do we consider large quantities/sizes of our products? Some examples are products classified as bulk or that include the word 'bulk' in the product's name, products offered in 5+ lbs., expensive EO's offered in 1+ lb. and certain quantities of packaging materials. If it's important for you to know before placing an order if a certain quantity's in stock, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and inquire before placing the order. The nature of our business is such that what is in stock in the morning may not be in stock in the afternoon. All products are subject to prior sale.
NOTE: If we unexpectedly encounter a problem with the packaging material used to pack the product you ordered (defective/missing part or delivery to us delayed for any reason including road/weather conditions or the manufacturer has a manufacturing delay, etc.) we cannot ship until the correct packaging part/material is delivered to us. Please understand this and do not place an order if this paragraph presents a problem for you. In 20 years in business we've only had one instance where delivery to us of empty 35 lb. pails/lids was delayed a couple of days. (Rev. 6/19/18)
Our cocoa butter is pure, food grade, prime pressed, golden. This product is sold by us for skin care applications. Cocoa butter is a fabulous addition for balms, lotions, creams, and soaps because of cocoa butter s softening and skin-healing properties. Cocoa butter has a beautiful light aroma of chocolate.
If you need to make a harder bar of soap, cocoa butter may be the answer for you. Most lip balms and massage butters require cocoa butter for firmness. It is the perfect butter for massaging daily into fast-growing pregnant bellies to try to prevent stretch marks from developing, it starts melting quickly upon skin contact.
In soapmaking, cocoa butter should be used along with more easily absorbed unsaturated oils such as olive, jojoba, castor, or avocado. A soap made with too high a percentage of cocoa butter will be hard and prone to cracking. Limit cocoa butter to approx. 15% of your total fats and oils. Use it to counterbalance the stickiness of certain fats such as shea butter. SAP value: 193.8. INCI: Theobroma Cacao.
NOTE posted 2/9/16: In all the years we’ve been offering butters, we’ve never, ever had a complaint from a customer indicating she was very displeased that her 5 lbs. bag of cocoa butter included what she described as chips and crumbs. We’re posting this information for all customers who’re considering purchase any of our harder, crumblier butters such as cocoa butter and kokum.
These butters come to us in 55 lb. blocks or other blocks of similar large sizes. Our clerks chip away at the blocks to obtain the various sizes in which the butters are sold. This is not an easy job and it’s very time consuming. We’re informing you in advance that any hard, crumbly butter you may order from us could arrive with chunks mixed in with much smaller beads or chips.
If this is not an option for you, then please consider ordering the largest block available which will ship to you exactly as received from the manufacturer, it’ll be a machine-extruded solid block from which you’ll have to cut the size you need. All sales are final, we will not accept returns of any butters which arrived at their destinations with chunks, beads and chips.

Best Cocoa Butter EVER!!
This is hands down the best cocoa butter of all times. Though my CG order was wrapped in layers of plastic (the best packing job I've ever seen btw), I could smell the cocoa butter OUTSIDE the box! Not only was the smell potent but it was mouth watering! In the past I have never cared for the smell of cocoa butter, but I completely changed my mind after smelling CGs. So much so in fact that I have changed my recipes to showcase this luscious butter. The amazing price makes it even better! I will seriously never order cocoa butter from any other company.

Smells almost good enough to eat!
Used this product for my body butters and lotions. It smells just like chocolate without all the fat! I like using this butter during the winter months to moisturize winter skin.

Yummmm! Perfect for those who love chocolate!
After four years of ordering and using camden's Prime Cocoa Butter, I've yet to be disappointed by the rich, sweet scent or moisturizing power of this unrefined butter! It been wonderful in making deliciously moisturizing body butters for the nw's drying winters. Even more exciting I'll share two of my favorite combinations for this butter! Whipped with Camden's raw shea butter, virgin coconut oil then added wildcrafted lemongrass and lavender essential oils creates a sweet, citrusy and creamy body butter. And even better in a emulsified thick cream with hazelnut oil, rosewater, aloe and added benzoin absolute and rose absolute--- I can't get over the scent of roses and nutella this combo creates!

Great quality butter
Camden grey is my newest go-to supplier for coco a butter, now. I was so pleased when I opened the package and it smelled just like chocolate! The scent is tad strong, but nothing a little fragrance oil or essential oil can't fix. The one thing I wish I had anticipated when I bought it was just how hard the cocoa butter was. My next order of cocoa butter will be melted as a whole and then pour into mini silicone molds. That will make it much easier to weigh and portion when making products.

Deep cocoa smell
This has a true cocoa smell. It's nice and firm and very moisturizing. It has that rich brown light ochre color. It's not crumbly either
