Emollients - Solid and semi-solid butters

INCI NAME: Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter

LIPEX® CocoaSoft RA MB™


Sustainably sourced from Ghana and Ivory Coast, Lipex CocoaSoft RA MB has a flatter melting profile and superior crystallization pattern than standard refined cocoa butter to prevent bloom, protect and repair the lipid barrier, and deliver increased thermal stability to final formulations.


Lipex CocoaSoft RA MB offers cosmetic formulators new opportunities to deliver rich, luxurious, superior emulsions without needing to add texturizing agents and to create innovative anhydrous formulations that remain smooth, firm, and glossy.

Features and benefits

  • Lipex CocoaSoft RA MB crystalizes faster to a small, homogenous, stable crystalline network which prevents the formation of bloom and grainy textures without the need for specialized equipment or the addition of texturizing agents.


  • The more stable crystalline network helps obtain smoother, glossier, less brittle anhydrous formulations.


  • The flatter melting profile indicates a less temperature-sensitive product and predicts the following behavior:
    • Less solid fat content at room temperature means that the ingredient is softer and more pliable.
    • A higher solid fat content at skin temperature results in a longer playtime providing a luxurious skin feel and the ability to protect and repair the lipid barrier.
    • The higher solid fat content at 40 °C helps stabilize formulations at high temperatures, which results in improved thermal stability and helps avoid temperature-induced phase separation.
