A little indulgence every now and then is good for the soul, but what if we told you that not only could your chocolate cravings be met on a daily basis, but that it could also work wonders for your skin? A dream come true for chocoholics, Cambridge Chocolate Technologies presents Estechoc Cambridge Beauty Chocolate, the world’s first beauty chocolate.
While the addition of fat, sugar and dairy over the years has given chocolate a reputation as a less than healthy treat, natural cocoa itself is actually considered to be a superfood. Full of polyphenols, a powerful antioxidant, cocoa can help neutralise free radicals and reduce inflammation. However, to get the most of these skin-loving benefits you would need to eat dark chocolate with at least 90% cocoa solids, something that is rare to find and not always very tasty.
Determined to utilise the benefits of cocoa, the scientists behind Estechoc have created a chocolate that is both enjoyable and healthy. Boasting two powerful antioxidants, Astaxanthin, a strong anti-inflammatory and Cocoa Polyphenolic Epicatechins to increase oxygen transport and microcirculation, this break-through treat has been clinically proven to improve skin health. Providing antioxidant protection, reduction of inflammation and a boost of oxygen levels and microcirculation to the skin combined with an effective delivery system, Estechoc helps skin appear healthier and younger-looking.
How It Works
"Chocolate when combined with our patented technology has a range of benefits throughout the body. When combined with Astaxanthin, the active in Esthechoc, there is a super-additive effect from the polyphenols in the cocoa and the antioxidant so that they become 10 times more powerful than when ingested alone." Dr. Ivan Petyaev, Cambridge Chocolate Technologies Co-Founder.
All it takes is one small bar of Estechoc a day to start reaping the benefits of these super-powered antioxidants. And at just 38 calories per portion, compared to the jaw dropping 500 calories of dark chocolate you would need for a similar effect, this guiltless little indulgence makes looking after your skin a luxury like never before.
