    Can you use cocoa butter lotion???? I’ve done coconut oil and shea lotion, it came out well just really thin that’s all.

    Does it matter if I use cocoa butter organic skin cream? As I’ve tried melting it & it doesn’t seem to want to melt. Thanks.

      Skin cream is not the same as cocoa butter. Cocoa butter is solid at room temperature, and melts immediately.
