Cacao Butter FAQs

What is Cacao Butter?

The cacao bean is loaded with heart-healthy fats! When the bean is ground and cold-pressed under pressure, the fats separate from the solids, producing two separate end products: cacao butter and cacao powder. The cacao butter is solid at room temperature, mildly chocolate-scented, and delicious in baked goods, skin care products, chocolate making and more. For more inspiration, visit our favorite recipes here.

Is there caffeine in your Cacao Butter Wafers?

No, cacao butter is naturally free of caffeine. During the cold-pressing process when the fats are separated from the solids, many nutrient compounds—including caffeine—are entrapped within the cacao bean fiber and removed from the butter. In addition to the heart-healthy fats that make up cacao butter, this product contains fat-soluble vitamins E and K, and bountiful antioxidants. However, our other cacao products do contain caffeine; cacao powder contains 6.6mg of caffeine per teaspoon and cacao nibs contains 4.6mg of caffeine per teaspoon.

Can Cacao Butter be used as a substitute for shea butter in cosmetics?

Yes! Whether making a body cream or lip balm, cacao butter can replace shea butter in almost all recipes. Both contain fatty acids and antioxidants that nourish and moisturize your skin. The main difference is the distinct chocolate aroma that cacao butter imparts, and the slightly firmer texture it has when cooled.

Why can’t I order this product in the summer?

We are unable to ship any products that have a high cacao butter content in the summer because they are at risk of melting during transit. While it doesn’t actually harm the product, it changes the form that the product arrives in and may impact usage options. We recommend purchasing this item from brick and mortar stores only during the summer months. For our store locator, please click here.

What is the shelf life of Cacao Butter?

When stored in a cool, dark place and properly sealed, our Cacao Butter has an 18-month shelf life from the time of manufacturing. The 'best before' stamp can be found on the back of the bag, and we recommend enjoying your Cacao Butter before then. If you haven't, but your product still smells normal (chocolatey!) and looks normal (no discoloration), you may consume it at your discretion. However, we cannot guarantee flavor, freshness, or nutritional potency after this point.

Why isn’t this product available as a subscription item?

Due to this product’s heat sensitivity, we are unable to ship it during the summer months. Unfortunately, this disqualifies it from subscription orders year round. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Does your packing facility handle allergens?

Yes, all of our superfoods are packaged in a facility that also handles common allergens. Our co-packers follow Good Manufacturing Practices, are HACCP certified, and thoroughly sanitize all equipment between every product run with organic, food-grade cleaners. All of our products are inherently gluten-free and are tested to ensure less than 20 parts per million of gluten, in compliance with FDA labeling regulations. We do not use soy, corn, or dairy derivatives in any of our products. Depending on the flavor, our Power Snacks may contain tree nuts and/or peanuts; see ingredient panels for more details.

Do you offer free shipping?

Yes! If your order is shipping within the contiguous U.S. and your product total is $49 or more, after any discounts are applied, a free ground shipping option will be available for you to select at checkout. If your order is below $49, a flat rate of $8.95 will apply for orders shipping within the contiguous U.S. For shipments to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and U.S. Territories, please see our shipping terms and conditions.

Can I order your products outside of the US?

Sorry, no! At this point, we only ship directly within the U.S. Our products can be shipped internationally via iHerb
