ABOUT COCOA SKIN
Due to the material properties - all soft vinyl is prone to scratches but they are hardly visible on our Cinnamon or Tea skin tones - for Cocoa however, they are more noticeable. For this reason, we include 1 Melamine sponge with cocoa vinyl bodies incase you scratch their body with your fingernail.
Take the sponge and brush lightly on the surface to remove the scratch. If you scratch the face by accident, brush very lightly with the sponge to remove it or you will end up removing the makeup too. Some of the sponge will leave white powder on the skin surface - just blow it away. Scratches will either disappear completely or become not as noticeable unless you are staring at it with a microscope.
All joints on the internal frame are lubricated with grease which may seep out in transit - no need to panic - just get a towel to wipe it off.
Also, the properties of soft vinyl encompass blemishes through the slush casting process which are more noticeable in the Cocoa skin tone - refrain from buying if this is not cool with you ;-)
ABOUT TAKING PHOTOS
Dust shows up more clearly on Cocoa so make sure to check the face for dust before taking photos. You may need to turn up the exposure slightly when taking photos of due to the dark complexion.
