Researchers Report that Cacao is good for the Skin
Cacao butter has been used as a traditional healing medicine for the skin by indigenous cultures in South America and Africa for centuries. Modern science is now proving their beliefs about the healing nature of this nutrient-rich super food. According to a feature health report on dark chocolate by news leader CNN, research has shown that cacao is good for the skin. The report states that "German researchers gave 24 women a half-cup of special extra-flavonoid enriched cocoa every day. After three months, the women's skin was moister, smoother, and less scaly and red when exposed to ultraviolet light." The researchers think the flavonoids reduce skin's sensitivity to UV radiation, increase blood flow to skin, and improve skin texture by increasing its density, thickness, and hydration.
The new organic Cacao Lip Balm joins an impressive roster of raw organic cacao offerings from Navitas Naturals. Navitas Naturals' other popular organic cacao products include their best-selling Cacao Powder, Cacao Beans, Cacao Nibs, Cacao Paste, Cacao Butter, Sweet Cacao Nibs and innovative Organic Super food Chocolate Kits.
