In addition to softening and moisturizing your skin, it will smooth out the tone and texture of it, making scars look less noticeable. Furthermore, applying cocoa butter topically on a daily basis can help facilitate repairing damaged skin. In order for the body to regrow skin tissue, the skin must be well hydrated. Therefore, cocoa butter's unique ability to lock moisture in at the deeper levels of the skin make it particularly beneficial as a treatment for scars. Because scarring is permanent, no amount of topical treatments will ever make it disappear completely; however, daily use of cocoa butter can prevent scars from forming in the first place, particularly during pregnancy. Massaging it onto your growing belly will keep your skin soft and pliable, which will allow your skin to stretch without tearing." Origin: Peru
