The Power of Cacao

plantLust utilizes cacao's healing and nourishing power in our Mood Flow adaptogenic chocolates and our Madeline Body Butter. Cacao is a natural source of antioxidants and minerals like magnesium, iron, and zinc. It also contains mood-boosting compounds like tryptophan and phenethylamine. For centuries, people have used cacao to promote mental well-being and emotional balance. Today, we continue harnessing cacao's benefits to help us feel our best. Our Mood Flow chocolates are designed to help reduce stress and promote feelings of calm and relaxation. And our Madeline Body Butter is enriched with cacao butter to soothe and nourish the skin.

Cocoa butter is a natural product that has many benefits for your skin. It is a rich, creamy moisturizer that helps to keep your skin looking smooth and healthy. Cocoa butter also contains antioxidants that help to protect your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays. Additionally, cocoa butter has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging.

About Cacao

Theobroma cacao, also known as the cacao tree and the cocoa tree, is a small evergreen tree in the Malvaceae family. Its seeds, cocoa beans, are used to make chocolate, cocoa solids, and cocoa butter. Cacao beans have been used as part of ritual beverages and once as a major currency system in pre-Columbian Mesoamerican civilizations. The benefits of cacao to the mind, body, and skin have been extensively studied and documented. Cacao contains flavonoids and plant-based nutrients that have been shown to improve cognitive function and protect against age-related cognitive decline. Theobromine, a compound found in cacao, has also improved blood flow and increased alertness. In addition, cacao is a rich source of antioxidants, which can help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. When applied topically, cacao butter has been shown to hydrate and nourish the skin. Due to its many benefits, cacao has been revered as a superfood for centuries and is enjoyed by people all over the world.
