Meanwhile, let's nerd out about some cool stuff!!!

Is the idea of cacao for skincare new for you? Here's 7 reasons why you (and your friends!) should try this mask:

Cacao powder in skincare Fact #1:

Look for (1) health benefit posted daily on our page! Like a vitamin, you can choose to absorb this information or not --- what you decide to do with it is entirely up to you, but here you go --- potent cacao details coming your way!

Cacao powder contains Polyphenols – a type of antioxidant that absorbs UV rays and helps ward off skin cancer.

This face mask is not a replacement for sunscreen, but why not protect your face in any way you can?


Cacao powder in skincare Fact #2:

Sifted cacao powder can help protect your skin cells from oxidation – what we know as aging. Studies have been showing that applying raw cacao powder to the skin offers a lot of the same benefits as eating it! The high levels of antioxidants help protect and repair the skin.

Cacao powder in skincare Fact #3:

The omega-6 fatty acids promote cellular healing, provide hydration, giving skin that plump, dewy appearance!


Cacao powder in skincare Fact #4:

The antioxidants and polyphenol in cacao stimulate blood flow to the skin, which promotes that healthy glow! When it’s topically stimulated, it creates a slight redness to the skin - but that’s the blood being pulled from the dermal layer which feeds all the cells. And it’s that activation phase of skin care that’s important and overlooked. Cacao activates the skin by pulling blood through to the surface so that it’s nourished and fed, and it really does result in toned, bright, plump skin.

Cacao powder in skincare fact #5:

Cacao powder is rich in antioxidants called flavonoids, which block harmful free radicals. What does that mean? It’s an extra layer of protection for your skin! These same flavonoids also help smooth fine lines.

Cacao powder in skincare Fact #6:

The anti-inflammatory properties in cacao can soothe redness and diminish the appearance of blemishes.

Cacao powder in skincare Fact #7:

The cacao bean has over 300 identifiable compounds including vitamins, minerals, amino acids and phytonutrients. Magnesium, zinc, iron, calcium, beta-carotene and omega 6 fatty acids are just a few of the nutrients that help your skin perform at peak levels.
