Sweet Pete’s Healthy Chocolates Help Hydrate Skin!
Many of Sweet Pete’s customers already love our ATICOA chocolates. The chocolates are known for their super antioxidant properties and their great taste. The chocolates which are processed in the patented ATICOA process retain much more antioxidants than traditional chocolates. In addition to the many health benefits we already knew about ATICOA, including heart health, new research shows they are healthy for your skin.
Barry Callebaut unveils the results of a new study into the anti-aging properties of its range of ACTICOA® products. According to the study presented at FIE, the daily consumption of an ACTICOA® drink rich in cocoa flavanols has been shown to have a positive effect on the hydration of the skin, an important factor in maintaining a healthy, vital-looking skin.
Hans Vriens, Chief Innovation Officer at Barry Callebaut says: “This study is part of the mounting evidence in support of the beneficial effects of cocoa flavanols on human health. Barry Callebaut’s ACTICOA® cocoa and chocolate are one of the richest known sources of cocoa flavanols, powerful antioxidants which are rapidly changing the way we view chocolate. The growing body of research, of which this study is just a part, is helping to make chocolate more permissible by actively showing how it can be a constructive part of a balanced, daily diet”.
