The 7 top benefits of chocolate for your skin and hair

Faith in Nature ChocolateWe’re rather partial to chocolate here in the Faith in Nature office (So Free Chocolate ticks all the boxes!). But did you know chocolate isn’t just great to eat? It’s really rather good for your skin and hair too.

Why chocolate is great for your skin

1)      It’s a fantastic natural moisturiser

Cocoa beans are packed with fatty acids (including oleic acid, palmitic acid and stearic acid), which are really nourishing and leave your skin feeling soft and pampered. If winter has left your hands feeling dry and sore, try swapping to a natural chocolate soap.

2)     Helps to protect your skin from damage

Antioxidants protect your skin from the damage caused by free-radicals, and cocoa is one of the best edible sources of antioxidants you can buy. It’s rich in flavonoids, which help to filter UV rays, and it’s a good source of vitamins A, B1, C, D and E.

3)     Soothes skin irritation

Chocolate is a natural anti-inflammatory and very gentle on your skin. It can help to soothe irritation and is suitable for even sensitive skin.

Why chocolate is great for your hair

4)     Nourishes your locks

Those fatty acids we mentioned above ‘feed’ your hair, making it look and feel much healthier. They also help to make your hair softer, glossier and easier to manage.

5)     Promotes hair growth

Did you know that chocolate is known to boost circulation? That’s good news for your scalp and may help to encourage your hair to grow. So, if you’re yearning for longer, thicker hair, chocolate shampoo is definitely worth a try.

6)     Suitable for all hair types

Looking for natural products that the whole family can use? Our chocolate shampoo and conditioner are suitable for all hair types, from dry and damaged to greasy, and the chocolatey aroma appeals to men, women and kids alike.

Faith in Nature chocolate range

So, if you fancy a chocolatey treat with a difference this Valentine’s (or any other time really), do take a look at our chocolate range. As with all Faith in Nature products, everything in the range is free from parabens, SLS, artificial colours and synthetic fragrances. We’ve added a hint of vanilla to the organic cocoa, as it really brings out the warmth of the chocolate aroma, without making it too sweet - think hot chocolate on a cold winter’s morning. Mmmmmmm.
