Roxy & Rich Cocoa Butter Collections
Our new collections of coloured cocoa butter might have you wondering about the differences between the ranges. At a first glance, they may not seem too different, but it’s quite the opposite. The effects of these ranges vary in finish and style. To ensure you’re getting the right product to suit your needs, we thought we’d write up a comparison post.
What ranges are available?
All products in the ranges can be applied directly to chocolate, used in chocolate moulds, airbrushed or mixed with melted white chocolate to colour it. All products are pre-tempered and won’t change the consistency of your chocolate. Better yet, each range is 100% edible, gluten free, lactose free, nut free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
‘They sound the same’, you might say. So, what are the differences?
Unlike other cocoa butters on the market, Roxy & Rich’s Natural Collection of Cocoa Butter is made from 100% natural fat soluble colourants from vegetable sources, whilst meeting European food standards. Colours available vary from White, Yellow, Orange, Fuchsia Red, Purple, Blue, Midnight Blue, Chlorophyllin Green, Green and Brown.
MATT FINISH • 100% NATURAL • OPAQUE • 10 COLOURS AVAILABLE
What truly separates this range from the other collections is the vibrant, matt finish you’ll struggle to get with other cocoa butters. The Artist Collection is made up of cocoa butters that are opaque and saturated with colours, made using fat dispersible dusts. When applied to chocolate, these colours will completely cover the chocolate like a paint, drying to a matt/velvet finish.
MATT FINISH • SOLID COLOUR • OPAQUE • 23 COLOURS AVAILABLE
The Gemstone Collection is the largest of the ranges with a choice of over thirty colours available. Similar to the Artist Collection, the Gemstone Collection also produce solid colours, but with a lustre/shimmering effect. It is opaque, covering chocolate completely when applied, but it shines like a lustre paint. The cocoa butter retains the lustre when airbrush too, drying to a lustre/metallic-like finish.
LUSTRE FINISH • SOLID COLOUR • OPAQUE • 31 COLOURS AVAILABLE
GEMSTONE PEARL COLLECTION
The Gemstone Pearl Collection is perfect if you’re looking for a beautiful pearlescent effect. The cocoa butters in this range contain no solid colour, only lustre. When applied to chocolate or airbrushed, the chocolate beneath will be visible unlike the effects with the other ranges. It is instead a reflection of colour, giving off a metallic finish that shines more than the other ranges – especially when moulded.
PEARLESCENT/METALLIC FINISH • NO SOLID COLOURS • REFLECTIVE • 7 COLOURS AVAILABLE
