About NOW Foods

NOW's Mission
The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods-a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

History of NOW
In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed - NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.

NOW's first priority is to maintain quality where it counts the most - in the products. NOW's exceptional cost-conscious team of employees then focuses their energies on driving costs down. Nurturing this competency of value drives NOW's ability to provide high quality products at the very best prices.
  • Natural is Better - NOW is convinced that natural products are better than their synthetic counterparts and produce better results in human health. Therefore, wherever possible, NOW strives to provide products that contain natural ingredients because they are better for their customers.

    NOW Solutions Cocoa Butter - 7 oz.

    NOW Foods 100% Pure Cocoa Butter is food grade, and safe for consumption. NOW Foods 100% Pure Cocoa Butter is a highly versatile, all natural moisturizer that's safe for use on even the most sensitive skin types. Pure Cocoa Butter has been used throughout the ages, and has become popular for covering sunburns, dry and chapped skin, scar tissue and stretch marks. In its natural state, cocoa butter is solid, and may vary in both color and appearance.
    • 100% Pure
    • A 100% Pure All-purpose Moisturizer
    What is the source of NOW Vegetable Glycerine, and can it be used as a sweetener?
    NOW Vegetable Glycerine is a natural by-product of the cosmetic industry. It is derived from palm oil and is 100% pure. Vegetable Glycerine is safe to use as a natural sweetener, and actually metabolizes slower than regular table sugar.

    I just bought NOW Shea Butter, and it is very grainy and difficult to apply? Is this natural or is the product bad?
    NOW Shea Butter is a natural product that often settles after packaging. A grainy consistency is not uncommon – in fact, it’s rather common! Simply microwave the container for a few seconds and then stir, or submerse in boiled water for a few seconds and stir to a smooth consistency.

    How is your Cocoa Butter made? Is it OK to use it in baking and chocolate recipes, and is it healthy?
    Cocoa butter is mechanically pressed from roasted, winnowed and milled chocolate liquor. Prior to pressing, the cocoa butter is centrifuged to remove any remaining solids. It is identical to the cocoa butter used in food products and is appropriate for any use, including baking. In fact, we purchase this ingredient from a producer of fine chocolate. According to the International Cocoa Organization, “Cocoa butter is the fat that occurs in cocoa beans and is used in the manufacture of chocolate. Cocoa butter, like all fats, is composed of several fatty acids - Palmitic acid 25%, Linoleic acid 3%, Stearic acid 35%, Oleic acid 35% and others 2%. Stearic and palmitic acids are saturated fatty acids, oleic is a monounsaturated fatty acid and linoleic acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid. Research has shown that cocoa butter does not raise cholesterol as might be predicted by its saturated fatty acid content, because of the neutral effects of stearic acid on blood cholesterol levels. Unlike palmitic or other saturated fats, stearic acid does not raise blood cholesterol. Forty years of research have shown that cocoa butter has a neutral effect on blood cholesterol.”Cocoa butter is also prized as a healthy oil for the skin and scalp.

      when i was living in Jamaica i used organic coco butter on my skin and it was awesome. Three years ago i migrated to Florida and my skin deteriorated so bad. i tried several different brand of organic coco butter but none of them worked. While serching on the internet i saw the 'NOW' COCO BUTTER after reading the ingredientsi decided to order four I am a naturalist and i use only organice products. i am into my fourth week of using them and i must say its fantastic. Beauty has started to return to my skin and my baby it's marvelous. It made our skin soft, smooth and has started to clear up the mark left on my son's feet as a result of bug bites and even my husband observed the difference. I LOVE IT! my friends and co workers were excited about how my complexion has come alive. I will be making many more orders soon. THIS PRODUCT ROCKS!!!!!!!!!

      Excellent pure organic cocoa butter! I love that it contains nothing but cocoa butter. I live in the Northern part of the US, so it's always solid as a rock (I don't know at what temperature it starts softening at) but I found that, if I just squeeze the edges of the plastic container a bit, eventually the whole block of cocoa butter will just slide right out. It's great for moisturizing everything. I always use it on my feet and they're super soft. I'll definitely be back for more!! Great price too!! Love Lucky Vitamin!! =)

      the ONLY thing that kept me from giving this 5 stars (clovers?) is that it's hard and powdery right out of the jar. but it smells DELICIOUS, melts nicely, and works well.

      Nice product, but working with solid cocoa butter can be a pain, although this is not the fault of NOW Foods. I use it for my belly during pregnancy and the quality is very smooth and smells like you are a piece of chocolate, but I have to use a knife to get a chunk out that I can use, since it is solid and hard at room temp. Directions indicate you can heat the butter up, but it is in a plastic container, which would lead me to believe some plastics could be leached into the butter when heated especially, and I wonder if the product would suffer from the constant heating and cooling. So, with that said, I do not heat the container. I just carve out a scoop that I need, warm it in my hands, and apply. Really wish it were in glass however.
