What are the benefits of Cacao?

When it is time for dessert, there is mostly one thing on our minds – chocolate! Who doesn’t love the gooey sweetness of rich and decadent chocolate? Derived from the humble cacao beans, native to Central and South America, there is so much more to chocolate than just being a great dessert. Cacao beans also contain some of the most potent ingredients for beauty care.   

Cacao as antioxidants for your skin

Cacao beans have the highest measured antioxidant capacity which intensely protects your skin from free radical damage. It prevents your cells from aging and oxidation. The Polyphenol antioxidants also defend skin from environmental damage and reduce fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and hyperpigmentation. Being rich in flavonoids also enables it to filter UV rays, protecting your skin from further sun damage. It also prevents the destruction of collagen fibers which maintain the elasticity of your skin and hence wards off sagging skin. 

More benefits of Cacao

Rich in vitamin C, it evens and brightens skin tone as well. The vitamin E content repairs scars and damaged skin. Not useful just for repairing damaged skin, Cacao beans are also intensely hydrating. Packed with fatty acids like Oleic Acid, Palmitic Acid, and Stearic Acid, it restores the skin’s lipidic layer which reinforces the barrier of the skin and prevents moisture loss. The omega 6 fatty acids also help improve blood circulation bringing more oxygen and nutrients to the surface of the skin. This helps revive dull skin, rejuvenating it and leaving it with a natural glow. 

Cacao beans also have natural anti-inflammatory properties that can be very soothing to the skin. It soothes redness, swelling, and blemishes which overall improves the complexion of your skin. The high caffeine content also reduces the appearance of cellulite. It prevents excess accumulation of fat in cells and constricts blood vessels which results in tighter and more toned skin. It also draws out any excess fluid from cells, all of which combine to reduce the appearance of cellulite. 

Cacao, Color and your Hair

Great for hair care as well, the high content of fatty acids also intensely nourish and hydrate hair making it softer and easier to manage. Cacao beans are rich in magnesium which is anti-inflammatory and has cell repair properties. This can also stimulate hair growth. The presence of copper, which triggers production of melanin and pigments in hair, also works as a natural and nourishing hair dye, particularly for premature greying. 

*Cacao refers to the raw plant that once roasted becomes cocoa.
