The use of chocolate in skincare ingredients is surprisingly not as common as one might think, and yet, it’s one of the most commonly eaten foods! Aside from its great taste and delicious, decadent aroma, chocolate has many health benefits.
The benefits of chocolate
are known far and wide. We’re here to help break down why chocolate skincare is a good option for you.
Why Is It a Good Idea for Me to Use Chocolate Skincare?
1. High In Antioxidants
Cocoa beans are high in antioxidants. Antioxidants have been shown to be beneficial to the skin – they help prevent and repair damage
that ultimately leads to wrinkles. They work by stabilizing and destroying free radicals in the cells – free radicals injure the cells. The buildup of free radicals leads to aging
2. Flavonoids and Cocoage Cosmetics
Flavonoid antioxidants help your heart by decreasing oxidation of LDL – the so-called “bad cholesterol.” The cacao blocks the oxidation which leads to plaque buildup, and helps improve circulation. In short, cacao is good for the heart!
Chocolate is one of the highest natural sources of magnesium. Magnesium keeps the heart healthy, and helps turn sugar into energy. That’s what allows the brain to become more focused and have more clarity.
4. Cocao Found in Cocoage Cosmetics Products Protects From UV Rays
Overexposure to the sun can cause sun spots and hyperpigmentation. However studies have shown that dark chocolate has special key ingredients that block this damage from occurring.
5. Tightens the Skin
Cacao’s antioxidants, among the other benefits listed earlier, also promote collagen production. This leads to skin that’s firmer and more youthful. Plus, the moisturizers in our products add just enough to ensure your skin is silky smooth, without causing excess oil production.
