Trend Alert: Cacao

Cacao is a deep liquid that is extracted from the nut of the cacao tree. It is grown in tropical jungles and contains higher concentrations of antioxidants than Vitamin C and about 20 times the amount in green tea. It is also known for its natural anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and cell regeneration qualities. Cacao is really starting to catch on in the beauty world, so here are three products where it is featured as the main ingredient.

Jo Malone Blue Agava and Cacao Cologne ($95) is a fragrance that was inspired by flamenco dancing. It contains notes of blue agava, cardamom, sea salt, grapefruit, lime oil, red berry, orchid, geranium, white lily, vetiver, cinnamon, vanilla, and cacao.

For two more beauty products that use cacao as their main ingredients,

Treat Cacao Lip Scrub ($16) is a a sweet and good-for-you indulgence for your lips. It is made with shea butter, sugar, and cacao. Rub a small amount onto your lips and then rub your lips together. The sugary taste is completely safe to lick off, too.

Raw Gaia Living Beauty Massage Bar ($6) is a natural body massage bar made from solid, organic raw cacao butter. Apply it all over to achieve soft and smooth skin. It also packs a lot of benefits into an inexpensive product: It contains high amounts of antioxidants, omega 6 fatty acids, minerals and vitamin C to nourish, repair and revive your skin.

You could just get a huge bottle of coco butter at your supermarket for $2. People have been doing that for years.

Just checked out the bar at the end. It is made in the UK, and retails for 6 pounds. About 13 dollars I believe. Add on shipping, and it is not such a great buy. :(
