So soft smell slightly like Shea but I defiantly get hints of chocolate.
This butter is good for when you need the benefits of coco butter but dont want the stiffness it will give your product. It does not have a smell which i though it would have as its unrefined. I wanted the smell but in echange for the softness i think its a fair trade. Its soft chunks. Did well in my body butters
I will buy this again
Awesome butter! It is not as brittle as some cocoa butters I have used and has a mild scent. It is perfect for lotions and creams where you want the benefits of cocoa but not the strong scent.
I felt like I received less than a pound but over all love the products
I use this in solid bubble bars and it leaves skin smooth and soft. Great quality!
Great quality cocoa butter and wonderful smell. I prefer unrefined as it's a harder butter and easier to get out of the bag.
