Most of us don’t eat chocolate for the health benefits, mainly because there aren’t a lot of them. Dark chocolate can be healthy in small quantities, but more often than not, chocolate is seen as something that will ruin your skin, not fix it.
Recently, the world was introduced to ruby chocolate, which is the first new type of chocolate created in 80 years.
“We don’t add flavorings, we don’t add coloring, or additives: it’s purely coming out of this bean, and its all natural,” Peter Boone, chief innovation and quality officer for Barry Callebaut said. “It’s a dedication to years of research into the artisanal processes of making chocolate. But it was also luck that we found this potential in the bean 13 years ago.”
And if you thought that was exciting, then you’ll LOVE Estechoc, which boasts itself as both candy and skin care.
So how can a piece of chocolate really help your complexion?
