12 Delectable Chocolate-Infused Beauty Products We Can’t Resist

Who said chocolate was just for eating?

If you’re a chocolate lover, you’re in great company: 265 million Americans (ourselves included) reportedly consumed the sweet stuff in 2019, according to the Statista research department. Tasty as it is, however, eating chocolate isn’t the only way to enjoy it. In fact, there’s an entire sector out there devoted to chocolate beauty!

Research has shown that cocoa, which is derived from the seeds of the theobroma cacao plant, is actually loaded with a whole host of skin-loving ingredients, such as polyphenols and antioxidants, that can help with everything from acne (yes, you read that correctly!) and inflammation, to signs of aging and decreased collagen production.

What’s more, the scent of chocolate is an undeniably scrumptious one: A 2019 study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that roasted cocoa beans have the same beta-ionone chemical compound that’s found in perfume and essential oils, making it all the more alluring.

Since most of cocoa’s nutritional value is lost during the processing of chocolate, beauty products are a great way for you to reap its benefits to the fullest.
