Chocolate contains fibre, essential fatty acids, proteins, glycerides, polyphenols, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, plus additional vitamins, which all combine to create very real and visible results. Polyphenols are known for their anti-oxidant properties, whilst glycerides deliver moisturizing lipids and fats to plump and firm the skin. The remaining minerals are necessary for healthy cell growth and renewal. In addition, because our products do not contain perfume, there is an unmistakable aroma of pure chocolate, which is known for its anti-depressant and stimulatory effect to lift and energise the spirits.
New research shows that cocoa has a higher concentration of anti-oxidants than red wine and both black and green tea. Cold chocolate milk does not have the same antioxidant benefits, as heat triggers the release of antioxidants from the cocoa. This is the reason we heat the chocolate in our mask and only offer hot chocolate as the after treatment drink, to further enhance the results.
Recent research from Harvard University found that people who ate chocolate three times a month had a life expectancy of almost a year greater. However, the same research showed that people who eat chocolate in excess have a lower life expectancy than non-chocolate eaters, possibly due to the risk of obesity.
Chocolate comes from the cacao plant and research at the University of California showed that the phenolics (antioxidants) contained in the plant may well account for why cacao plants have a natural protection against insects and disease whilst growing.
The Hot Coco Facial is original and innovative in every way and is the Worlds first Chocolate and Oxygen facial. Adored and lauded by the press and clients alike, this treatment is massage from beginning to end, and the results are dramatic on lines, hydration levels and clarity.
“My partner treated me to one of your chocolate facials as a surprise, and I loved it so much I just wanted to say thank you. It really was very special and made me feel like a celebrity. The fact my skin looked amazing afterwards was the icing on the cake”
“Without any question or doubt, the Hot Coco facial is the best facial I have ever had. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience”.
“I have been fortunate enough to stay at some of the World best Spas and Health resorts, and I have enjoyed many treatments. The Karin Herzog Co_CO2 facial is way up there with the best. I am a huge fan of the entire range”
