A powerful combination of raw cocoa butter and pure shea butter. Customers call this our ‘hot chocolate butter’ for its delicious smell.


Powered by a duo of shea and cocoa butter this lotion gives skin a deep glow while healing and repairing it. It has a delicious natural chocolate scent and just four ingredients — cocoa butter, shea butter, coconut oil and almond oil. No preservatives, no filler, no synthetic fragrance.

What is the texture of Cocoa Shea Blended Butter?

This body butter is whipped in a commercial grade mixer for close to an hour to give it a light fluffy, texture that absorbs right into skin and hair. Because it is so soft it spreads easily, making application effortless. It absorbs easily into hair and plays well with other products, so you won’t experience flaking or build up. A little goes a very long way.

What does it do for skin?

Softens skin over time, reducing scarring and irritation. It reduces blemishes and stretch marks, and relieves eczema and psoriasis. Use it all over your body or in a more targeted way — as a foot cream to remove dry, dead skin, a hand cream to grow nails and keep hands soft or a lip balm.

Shea butter is also known to boost collagen production, plumping skin and reducing wrinkles.

Because our body butters do so much we’ve compiled a full list of 17 uses. Click here to check it out.

How do I use it in hair?

Apply to wet or damp hair. It will soften strands, define curl pattern and lock in moisture. Use it as a styling product to get definition in twists, braids, twist outs, braid outs and wash and go’s. Good for beards too!

Does Cocoa Shea Blended Butter promote hair growth?

Absolutely! It strengthens strands, leading to consistent hair growth.

    I have been using your butters for a year now to lavishly moisturize my body. Recently, I decided to try the Cocoa Shea Blended Butter in my hair and on my scalp. For about a week now, I’ve been applying it and my very dry, type 4 hair has softened dramatically and stayed moisturized longer. Plus there’s the lovely chocolatey scent from the cocoa butter that gently wafts in the air and has so many people ask me what am I using that smells so good. Thank you Leila for creating such wonderful products. You have a customer for life!!

    This coco-shea smells DIVINE!!! I love the fact that there are no chemicals & additives…. All Natural! I had to support this business because it’s homegrown from my hometown BROOKLYN, NY ♥️

  3. Senia (verified owner)

    I had been looking for a natural lotion that smelled like cocoa butter but without all the fake stuff. I don’t know how or why it took me this long to find this one! It’s literally perfect and just a few ingredients. Amazing. I’m already obsessed and will be using on my baby ❤️ It smells like chocolate. Can’t wait to try their vanilla shea butter! I bet using both will smell like heaven ☺️ Thank you so much for your products!!!

    This not only smells good enough to eat (don’t eat it!) but it hydrates my skin like no other. I have really bad psoriasis, especially in the winter, and it is the only product I have been able to find that is not only nourishing enough, but one I don’t have to re-apply mid-day. The scent is also just light enough (a nice touch) where it is not overwhelming or irritating for sensitive skin. Thank you so much!

  5. Shannon Larmooh (verified owner)

    I’ve tried almost every scent and they all smell so good but they are so nourishing for my skin. I have skipped a day of applying the shea butter and my skin was still moisturized! I’ve used cocoa she blended butter on my lips too. I used this on my scar from having an open hysterectomy earlier this year and it has lightened it significantly! I also gave a big jar to my sister who had a major surgery on her leg requiring a skin graft and it has helped her skin heal so much better and faster. I can’t see myself ever using anything but your products for my skin.

  6. Jackie (verified owner)

    Absolutely LOVE this! I have been looking for a lotion that smells like the cocoa lotion in the stores BUT without all the fake stuff in it, and THIS IS IT. Smells so good, easy to put on, lightweight, etc. I will definitely be a repeat customer for this item!

  7. Tobi-Velicia (verified owner)

    This blend of cocoa butter and shea butter is an excellent moisturizing treat for the skin. The moisturizing effects last a long time, but a really great way to maintain moisture and suppleness is to apply to slightly damp skin after gently exfoliating. A little goes a long way and it smells amazing!

  8. Christie (verified owner)

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS BUTTER!! It is so smooth and moisturizing. It smells like heaven and works wonder on my skin!! I’d definitely order this again!

  9. aleasanicole

    I have to admit that I cannot stand the smell of cocoa butter (gag) BUT this butter is so very good that I use it anyway. Some days I skip it for the vanilla or vanilla latte but this particular blend as well as the olive oil one are the best that I have found for my skin. I have significant skin issues as well as medications that cause my skin to be photosensitive, dry, and paper thin. Yours are some of the very, very few products that make me feel like my skin is almost normal. So thank you very much for your work and your commitment to quality! My mom and I are repeat customers and fully intend to continue supporting your business!

    I waited a few weeks to review so it was honest. Now honestly… I love it! Im obsessed. Im sensitive to scents, but the light chocolate smell makes me wanna eat it! Seriously though, Ive had eczema on my hands & dry patches on my legs for a year now & nothing has worked; prescription ointments, cortisone, nothing. Within a few days, my eczema cleared up & the dry patches are almost all gone by now. My skin feels very smooth after massaging it in after a shower & the butter is not heavy. The GLOW! I be glistening out here haha! New permanent customer!

  11. emaynard018 (verified owner)

    I don’t like the smell in my opinion. It does works great I’ve had dark scars from my bra strap and has helped it clearing up within days!!

  12. Camille Chantel

    I love love love it !!!!it smells extremely good && it makes my skin glow ! I’m going to keep ordering this lotion! I’m satisfied! It didn’t take long to get here either.

  13. Cassie (verified owner)

    This stuff is unreal. It’s incredibly light and fluffy, and absorbs well into your skin. It also smells exactly like hot chocolate. I can’t wait to repurchase 🙂

  14. mm21104

    Incredible moisturizer! It definitely smells strongly of cocoa butter, it is a very rich smell but it’s very pleasant and in no way overwhelming. Because these butters are whipped they have such a satisfying texture and melt beautifully with no effort, unlike say raw shea butter which can be very hard to apply. I have very sensitive skin but get no reaction from these products, instead I’m left feeling soft and smelling wonderful all day! Shipping to Colorado in February was of course a non issue. Even if I have to pay extra for insulated shipping in the summer I will be doing so because these butters are just THAT good.

  15. Gwynne

    I love everything about this product! I’ve only had it for two days but I can already see and feel the difference. Thank you!

  16. Ci Ci (verified owner)

    Smells amazing and melts right into my skin! I do wish the moisture lasted much longer as it is tough to keep my skin glowing in the winter but you have a customer for life

  17. Nichole (verified owner)

    This butter is very moisturizing and smells amazing! I will definitely order again.

  18. Natalie

    I am usually resistant to using lotions (I don’t like the texture), but these whips are so fluffy and fun to use that I’ve become much better at moisturizing. I’m a mail carrier in a dry state, and this has brought a lot of comfort to my poor weather-beaten skin. Also, for anyone that has tattoos: I used these butters to heal a new tattoo and my artist was thrilled at how nicely it healed. Obviously it’s also great for keeping healed tattoos moisturized and bright. (At least, in my experience!)

  19. Angela Cunningham (verified owner)

    I finally received my whipped butter! I love it and never change your ingredients!

  20. Alethia (verified owner)

    I love how this melts on my skin. The smell is pretty nice as well! A little goes a long way.

  21. Sabrina Tafoya-Spence (verified owner)

    Amazing product! I’m on my second jar! A little bit goes a long way. It’s really helped my dry skin during the winter months and my husbands eczema has greatly improved.

  22. Kenya Setzer (verified owner)

    I just got my whipped butter today. I have to tell myself to stop using it, because I love it so much. Lol. I love the way it makes my skin feel and the sheen it leaves.

  23. Chibeze (verified owner)

    I have been using this butter for about 6 months now with great results. My skin is very soft and smooth. I have keratosis pilaris (chicken skin) and noticed recently that my bumps have reduced and do not feel rough anymore, especially on my elbows. Actually no area of my skin feels rough anymore! I wish I had taken a before and after picture of my elbows as proof , ha!

    I enjoy the rich chocolate scent when I am applying it but the smell does not last for long which is perfect for those like me who with scent free workplaces.

  24. Paige (verified owner)

    I absolutely love this butter (and many others) but as a natural I have been using this butter as a sealant for my hair and Honey let me tell you! I can’t express how moisturized my hair has been!! I’m relieved and happy to finally have a product that aids in my hair retaining moisture. I’ll be a customer for life!???? Blessings to this company and many more to you Ms.Noelliste.

  25. Shannon Barber (verified owner)

    I have very sensitive, reactive dry skin on my body. I go through butters looking for something that will keep my skin moisturized. This is an excellent product. It was well packaged and emulsifies very easily. My skin drinks it up and the scent is very natural and not overpowering. I will absolutely repurchase, excellent quality and timely shipping.

  26. kenyadscott (verified owner)

    This is the best stuff ever!! I have been looking for something to lock in moisture and make my skin soft and smooth. I am in my 40s and I am trying to keep my skin healthy. I haven’t tried it for my hair yet but I am sure it will do wonders for my hair as well. I love the coco butter smell to this. I am not a big fan of coco butter scent but this here is not overpowering. Will purchase again.

  27. Rasheeda Al-Badee’ (verified owner)

    Good Stuff! Cleared my 2 month old daughters open sore eczema and made her skin baby soft again!!! Bless you all ????????????????????????

  28. kiannam15 (verified owner)

    Ordered this for my brother and he’s extremely picky on what he uses on his skin but he loves this so much. Gave this to him as a sample and now he’s in love with this and gave up his other products. Amazing!!

  29. Teresa (verified owner)

    This is great moisture for my dry skin. Has replaced all of my lotion.

  30. Montara (verified owner)

    LOOOOOVE! I have used many different shea products and this whipped version is far beyond any other! It feels good when I apply it. Although initially, I thought that the produce would not absorb the way I liked but I was wrong. The scent of the cocoa butter is profound but goes away over a small amount of time. My skin feels nourished and soft since I have been using this product.

  31. Rosemary54c (verified owner)

    I love this coca butter and shea blended. Love the smell and make your skin feel soft an go on so smooth. Been using a few months now and really tell the different from other drugstore lotion.. This butter so much better for your skin. I am in love withbit, also use it on my hair it’s great.

  32. Stephanie (verified owner)

    I absolutely love this butter! We first sampled the product with the 2.5oz size, and my family fell in love with it. We now order the 12oz because we use this as our sole body moisturizer. We even use it on our hair during out night time routines. We initially used it as a facial moisturizer, but now we use the Lemon Creme without the Almond Oil. Thank you for your care in quality products; my family is forever done with lotions.

  34. bfap99 (verified owner)

    I am a man ,who is very picky about the products I put on my skin.For years I had been using coco butter body butter by THE BODY SHOP, which I loved until they changed the formula. So I have been looking for something since then.A friend who lives in N.y. recommended this.As so as I put some on my arm…JACKPOT! My skin never felt this smooth ,I coundnt believe it.Not to mention the sheen it left.I immediately placed my order.I had a coworker feel my arm,she said it felt “As smooth as a baby’s ass”.

  35. Courtney (verified owner)

    ❤️ I love it…leaves you feeling smooth & smells delicious

  36. Kristin (verified owner)

    This product smells sooooooo good. I had to buy a separate one for my family because I didn’t want to share. Looking forward to a visit to Brooklyn soon so I can get some items in person!

  37. Ava Brown (verified owner)

    I chose this one to use after my bath or shower. It’s soooo flipping good! I love my skin (not that I didn’t before) because everything that’s on me is now natural. WOO HOO!

  38. Sidney (verified owner)

    This company continues to blow my mind. This product, as everyone I’ve purchased, has exceeded my expectations.

      Wow. Thank you so much! And we will keep working at exceeding your expectations!

  39. kai (verified owner)

    I ordered a sample and from the first dip of my finger in the product I IMMEDIATELY regretted not ordering a larger size! This is the lightest, fluffiest, most whipped butter I’ve ever used! It went on so smooth on my face and it left my face feeling so soft! I tried it in my hair and left my hair light and fluffy and feels very moisturized. I was back ordering the larger size within 2 days! I think I’ve met my Holy Grail moisturizer!

  40. Dejah (verified owner)

    I was excited to get the coco Shea butter my skin loves it smell delicious my skin glowing feeling so healthy thank you so much ????????????????????????

  41. Rex (verified owner)

    Used this growing up and am so thrilled to be using it again. I love cocoa butters smell, and whipped is my favorite formula. Plus who doesn’t want to support Black woman owned business?

  42. Katie (verified owner)

    I was skeptical to buy a cocoa scent lotion. Most smell like a bad tootie roll. This one smells amazing! Like real cocoa I could almost eat it. It is work great wonders on my baby bump. I will continue to purchase!!

  43. Taneshia (verified owner)

    I absolutely loved this product. I purchased it because of a acne treatment I’m going through is severely drying out my skin and the moisturizer my dermatologist recommended broke me out. My skin is really sensitive. I cant use anything with SPF in. So I was looking for a more natural product and someone recommended this and I am very pleased.

  44. Felicia Smith (verified owner)

    This product smelled heavenly. Unfortunately, I opted not to do the weather proof shipping because even though I am in Georgia and it was cooler when I ordered it…by the time it came we were in warmer days. Which is typical of Georgia.
