Cocoa, Absolute

COCOA GHANA/ IVORY COAST THEOBROMA CACAO description The chocolate aroma is known to reduce stress and anxiety. It may also help reduce appetite cravings and addictive issues. We offer this absolute for those who want a food-grade chocolate essence in their personal care products such as soaps, lotions and salves. Absolutes are solvent extracted products. The maximum level of ethanol (grain alcohol) in this Cocoa Absolute is 1.9%. According to EWG's Skin Deep, "Potential risks from ethanol in personal care products are significantly smaller than the health risks posed by the consumption of alcoholic beverages." Absolutes are solvent extracted products. They are produced by a multi-step process which involves first extracting the flower (or other biomass) with a non-polar solvent such as hexane. After the hexane is evaporated, a waxy product is obtained called the concrete. The concrete is then extracted using a polar solvent such as ethanol, a grain alchol such as Vodka. The polarity of ethanol allows extraction of the volatile aromatics from the concrete while leaving behind the non-polar plant waxes which don't dissolve well in ethanol. Finally, the ethanol is evaporated to leave behind the absolute, which will typically have 1-5% ethanol remaining in it and sometimes a trace of hexane, depending on the method used. When hexane traces remain, they are present in parts per million. To offer some perspective, a chemist wrote that a burning a typical paraffin candle disperses 10-100 grams of petrochemical contaminates into the air of the room.
