Your feet can become dry and cracked at any time of year. So what is the trick for relieving cracked heels? You can use cocoa butter for feet and heels year-round. It’s great for men, women, and children, too!


Cocoa butter-based products, like the classic solid balm, are known to relieve skin irritation while deeply moisturizing skin.

Why is Cocoa Butter Good for You?

When you think of cocoa butter, you may think of your favorite chocolate bar, but this versatile ingredient is ideal for use in skin care products due to its high fat content and body temperature melting point that allows it to easily and quickly absorb into skin. When blended with Vitamin E, this superior healing duo leaves your skin healthier looking and feeling. After applying Palmer’s Cocoa Butter for feet, you can expect softer, smoother and healed heels.
