Cocoa butter, also called theobroma oil or theobroma cacao, is a pale-yellow, pure edible vegetable fat extracted from the cacao bean. It is used to make chocolate, biscuits, baked goods, pharmaceuticals, ointments, and toiletries - it has a mild chocolate flavor and aroma.

Cocoa butter is obtained from either whole cacao beans or chocolate liquor (also known as cocoa liquor). Chocolate liquor is pressed to separate the cocoa butter from the cocoa solids. The Broma process is used to extract cocoa butter from ground cacao beans. It is usually deodorized to remove its strong and undesirable taste.
Shea butter is a slightly yellowish or ivory-colored natural fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree by crushing, boiling and stirring. It is widely used in cosmetics as a moisturizer, salve or lotion.

Shea butter is edible and may be used in food preparation. Occasionally the chocolate industry uses shea butter as a substitute for cocoa butter, although the taste is different. The English word shea comes from 's'í, the tree's name in the Bamana language of Mali. The French name karité comes from ghariti, its equivalent in the Wolof language of Senegal.
