NanoCacao is a lipophilic fraction of cocoa beans that is encapsulated in a nanoemulsion. Cocoa beans contain the “feel-good” chemical anandamide – this is a lipophilic substance that is also naturally produced by our brain. It induces euphoria, regulates appetite and relaxes our muscles.
It binds to a receptor which is also present in certain skin cells.
NanoCacao relaxes and smoothes the skin and reduces skin tension. Its applications include anti-stress formulations, color cosmetics, and wellness and spa products.
