Skin Chocotherapy Basics
April 22, 2016Cacao has been prepared as a drink for centuries in the Mesoamerican region, where it has been grown for over 3000 years. The Aztecs knew this drink as xocolātl – meaning "bitter water" – and this is where the oh so popular word "chocolate" that we know today comes from. Chocolate has become many a person's favorite drink or food. It has been incorporated in many and varied products, from candy bars to liqueurs to perfumes. Chocolate also has many proven health benefits. For example, chocolate is high in antioxidants, has been proven to lower the risk for cardiovascular diseases, and it can protect our skin from the harmful effects of the sun… yes, you heard right! Consuming chocolate, more specifically, dark chocolate, is good for your body, your brain, and even your skin!
Did you know that chocolate is also good ON your skin? Chocolate hydrates and tones your body and re-mineralizes your epidermis. All the while, it revitalizes and nourishes the skin, providing a sense of well-being and relaxation. That is why, at Beauty Image, we decided to develop a waxing line that combines all the benefits of chocolate with top-quality waxing products. Our Chocotherapy line features all the products you need for a head-to-toe chocowaxing treatment. And the amazing power of chocolate and waxing is what this blog post is all about! If you want to learn more about the benefits and uses of our choco-products, just keep reading. Our Chocotherapy line features five products, all with properties derived from elements provided by cacao.
Beauty Image's Chocowax is a soft body wax enriched with cocoa oil and sweet almond oil. This deliciously-scented wax has an innovative composition, which provides for an effective waxing treatment while leaving the skin hydrated and regenerated, and your soul relaxed. As any other Beauty Image soft wax, our Chocowax is Paraffin-free, which allows our wax to have a lower melting point. Soft body waxes are recommended for any skin type, as that low melting point makes them perfect for people with heat sensitivity or circulatory problems. This wonderful product also minimizes the pain upon removal. Our Chocowax also comes in a Roll On presentation to be applied to the legs more easily, featuring the same benefits of the soft Chocowax.
This is a two-phase refreshing choco-tonic that perfectly complements a Chocowax hair removal treatment. It has cocoa butter and urea, both of which have emollient and softening effects, leaving the skin moisturized. It works best when applied right after treatment, leaving a calming and refreshing feel on the skin while minimizing the effects of waxing.
This treatment is 100% chocolate enriched with cocoa extract and sweet almond oil. The first ingredient provides for lipolitic qualities, aiding in the non-accumuation of fat nodules and helping the recovery of softness and uniformity of the affected areas. Meanwhile, almond oil strengthens the skin's elasticity thanks to its emollient and protective properties. In addition, chocolate stimulates the production of endorphins, providing a sense of well-being.
This package has everything you need for a Chocotherapy treatment in one kit, including the accessories. In addition to the products listed above, this kit also comes with the heater, a brush, firming ampoules, and anti-cellulite cream. This kit is the perfect way to start offering this innovative therapy at your waxing salon.
