A friend of mine told me that cocoa butter lightens skin. Is this true?

Its known to help fade dark spots & stretch marks not necessarily used for lightening the skin.

when I came back from the West-Indies in 2000, my legs were covered in mosquito bites, and as i had been scratching them, it left black circle marks all over my legs and ankles.
 
I knew that maby people use Pure Cocoa Butter to lighten dark marks, but as it would've been too much hassle to melt it every morning & night to apply to my skin, I bought a tub of palmers cocoa butter and applied it to my legs and ankles each morning and night. I also bought the swivel stick verison and applied it once during the day. I'm not sure how long it took, but within a year, the dark marks were gone, cause the next Summer, I was able to wear short skirts again.
 
They're still gone to this day and have never returned.
 
Also, I have found that if I have dark marks on my shoulders caused by a tight bra strap, a few weeks use of cocoa butter and the marks will be gone. Also works wonders on my knees and elbows, as these areas are jet black, wheras the rest of my skin is much much lighter but when I use the cocoa butter they get really light quick, to the point that they nearly match my skin colour, but have noticed that once I stop using it , they go darker again.

The reviews are mixed for cocoa butter cause some say that it takes forever to see results. Shea butter is supposed to work quicker. On the other hand, Flamingo1 had great results. I've never had the patience to use cocoa butter tho

I think it depends on each individual as to how quick or slow it takes to see results or if it will work at all. Shea butter sound great too
