As one of the nation's larger suppliers of Cocoa Butter and other natural raw ingredients, we currently offer 3 different versions of wholesale cocoa butter below. All three versions are available in larger quantities by calling the home office for a custom quote. We currently have a number of larger customers that order in truckload quantities and we can facilitate orders of any size. We typically stock over 50,000 lbs. of each version on the floor for prompt shipment.
Our Pure Primed Pressed Natural Cocoa Butter (Kosher food grade)...Natural Cocoa Butter is extracted from the cocoa bean, refined for purity and left un-deodorized. Because of the lack of deodorization, bulk natural cocoa butter has a pale yellowish or slight brown color and has the typical chocolate odor normally associated with cocoa butter. This version has a fantastic chocolate aroma making it the cocoa butter of choice for any customer that can appreciate the natural chocolate aroma.
Our Natural Deodorized Cocoa Butter (Kosher food grade)...Our Natural Deodorized Cocoa Butter is extracted from the cocoa bean, refined, deodorized and left in it's natural color. This version is higher in natural anti-oxidents than the white refined because it does not go through the bleaching process. Because of the deodorization, it does not have the strong natural odor that natural cocoa butter is known for. This is great for soap making and personal care products where odor is an issue.
Our Ultra Refined White Cocoa Butter...Our wholesale ultra white refined and deodorized coca butter is perfect for cosmetics or drug products that require an ultra refined product. Once cocoa butter is extracted from the cocoa bean the natural butter is fully refined, deodorized and bleached resulting in a white color. This bulk butter also has almost no odor or color making it better for items that have tight tolerances for color or smell.
Also known as Theobroma oil, cocoa butter is a pale yellow vegetable fat that is derived from the cocoa bean. The process is quite interesting. The beans are first fermented, then roasted and finally separated from their shells. After that process, about 54-58% of the remaining product is pure cocoa butter. Chocolate liquor is then pressed to separate the butter from the cocoa solids. After this process the butter is usually deodorized to remove some of the strong taste which is often undesirable.
As a manufacturer the facts are simple, we have some of the best wholesale prices on pure cocoa butter and essential oils wholesale anywhere in the USA which makes us your place to buy. Where to buy peppermint oil and thousands of other great products.
So what are the benefits of cocoa butter? Well, for starter's it is the primary ingredient in the commercial production of both white and milk chocolate and we all know how important chocolate is to our lives. In fact, chocolate production pretty much dominates the consumption of cocoa butter and really drives the price on this tasty commodity.
As far as other uses, you may find it interesting that wholesale cocoa butter is used widely in Pharmaceuticals. Today many companies exploit cocoa butter's interesting physical properties. We all remember the M&M commercials talking about how they melt in your mouth, not in your hand. This is because bulk cocoa butter is solid at room temperature and melts at body temperature. Because of this unique melting point it is considered a perfect base for medicinal suppositories that need to be in solid form until inserted into the body. Probably not something you would like to associate with your favorite tasty treats but now you know.
Bulk Cocoa butter is also one of the most stable fats known to man. When you couple that with it’s high antioxidant properties, it is great at preventing rancidity of all sorts of products. This makes it a great addition to any product with a high oil content. When you add all that to the fact that cocoa butter has amazing emollient properties and a very pleasant fragrance, it is no wonder that it has become popular in soaps and personal care products. These properties also make pure bulk cocoa butter a popular ingredient in stretch mark creams. In fact today, most stretch mark creams on the market contain large quantities of this amazing ingredient and many larger companies use it as their main marketing push. Take Palmer's Cocoa Butter Products. Their entire product line is designed and marketed around the benefits of this simple butter.

I previously had bought organic cocoa butter from a different source and while it was a great moisturizer and wonderful to make all natural paleo energy bars, I found the smell prohibitive on what I could make bath and body wise. The smell of the cocoa butter always overwhelmed the EOs I was trying to use. I bought the deodorized cocoa butter from Bulk Apothecary and I love it. It is still such a great moisturizer but the smell is no longer so strong that it overwhelms the EOs used with it. I love it! I use it in my bath salts, scrubs, lotions and lip balms.

I just love how great this smells, makes me want to eat it right off the jar sometimes. Im currently using it to sustain my own version of homemade deodorant and it is just wonderful mixed along with some of the bees wax. Thank god it doesnt melt cause my previous version with pure coconut didnt go so well.

We have a small esthetician made skincare line and we needed a new source for cocoa butter. Not only did Bulk Apothecary have the best price but it was the freshest cocoa butter we've ever had. It wasn't dried out and hard like the stuff we've been getting from Amazon. It was so easy to work with and worked so well in all of our products. We'll definitely be repeat customers. :)

I ordered pure natural cocoa butter for my massage candles. Though it was extremely difficult to get out of the container, I loved the result of my candle. I will definitely be ordering more.

I bought the 1 lb version of this and it came in a plastic container with a screw top. While I appreciate the screw top, it was a pain to extract what I needed for my use because I had to chip away at it while still in the container. The container did break so I had to transfer the remaining cocoa butter into my own container.
Also, I purchased the deodorized version thinking it would be better to not have competing smells in my lotion bars but, after making my first batch of lotion bars, I will be ordering the "natural" version since I do miss the smell.
Overall, this is a good product for the value, despite of the container issue.

I bought the deodorized cocoa butter for my lotion bars but I miss the cocoa smell. This is a great product and reasonably priced; however, I would buy the natural version next time.

1 lb. Pure Natural :
Excellent color, aroma of PURE and DARK cocoa and exceptional texture

I was a little concerned about ordering the 8 lb bucket as opposed to the 1 lb jars because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to get it out of the bucket. No concerns once it arrived - i was able to chip away pieces with the help of a sharp paring knife with no trouble at all and it is way cheaper than buying the once ounce tubes at $2.00 a pop at the beauty supply store. I use it to make both whipped and solid body butters :-)
