5 Awesome Benefits of Chocolate Antioxidants used in Cocoage Skincare
Antioxidants have been a big buzzword in health and nutrition research for decades. Recently, scientists have picked up on the fact that antioxidants are not only good for the body, but also for the health of skin, as well. What about chocolate antioxidants in skincare?
Chocolate skincare in particular seems to offer a number of specific benefits to the skin due to its abundant antioxidant potential.
It’s one of the major reasons why the skincare and beauty researchers at Cocoàge Cosmetics made chocolate the key ingredient in their new line of products. We spoke with them about just what makes the antioxidants in chocolate so powerful.
5 Awesome Benefits of Chocolate Antioxidants in Skincare
#1 The Flavonoid Advantage
The majority of the antioxidants in chocolate are flavonoids, a recently discovered form of plant-based antioxidant that provides major benefits to the skin. These antioxidants are more potent and may offer more skin protection than many of the “big” vitamins such as A, C and E.
#2 Cellular Regeneration and Repair
Antioxidants play a direct role in preventing damage to skin cells that comes from inflammation and aging. And when that damage does occur, antioxidants can even help the cells repair themselves.
#3 Firming & Lifting
One specific pair of antioxidants in chocolate, theobromine and theophylline, have a firming and lifting effect on the skin to keep it looking healthy and young.
#4 Sun Protection
One major area where the antioxidants in chocolate cosmetics play an important role is in protecting the skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Sun damage is one of the major contributors to early aging of the skin for most individuals.
#5 “Big” Antioxidant Power
While the power of flavonoids garners a lot of attention, chocolate skincare products also contain some of the major antioxidants that have been shown to help the skin, including vitamins A, B5 and B9.
