Hydrosols make sense in almost any and every personal care product creation. They add plant power to lotions, shampoos, cleansers, toners, room sprays…you name it! And cacao is the bean of pure bliss. When you add cacao hydrosol to your personal care products you’re in a phenomenal position to harness all the benefits of cacao based on the way that hydrosols work!
Hydrosols are crafted using the same method that produces essential oils and contain about 3%-5% of the volatile oil. The difference between the two is that hydrosols are actually plant-infused water and are thus lighter in scent and cost. The evolutionary intelligence of the ancient cacao bean is embedded in the structure of the water, creating an intelligent and beautifying skin care elixir. In the case of cacao hydrosol, that intelligence includes the ancient land, major skin revitalization and a super heavenly experience.
Within its molecules, cacao hydrosol holds the earthy, lush environment the cacao tree goes best in. Cacao trees are native to the deep, emerald jungles of Mesoamerica. There they grow in river basins with rich, creamy soils and consistent rainfall. Within these abundant, verdant environments, the cacao tree sprouts tiny white flowers that later develop into the miraculous cacao bean famously used to make that euphoric treat chocolate. Cacao hydrosol is like having all the benefits of chocolate in a water!
On the skin, the biochemical makeup of cacao hydrosol works miracles. Cacao actually contains more antioxidant power than wine, green tea, and berries, COMBINED. These antioxidants prevent rapid aging by blocking skin-damaging free radicals. Cacao is also chocked full of minerals and fatty acids like omega 6, copper, iron, sulfur, and magnesium. These elements repair tissue damage, increase blood flow, and promote cellular healing. All said, cacao hydrosol encourages a supreme youthful glow!
Spiritually, cacao has been called the “food of the gods”. That’s because cacao contains phenylethylamine and anandamide, two organic compounds that stimulate dopamine and other feel-good chemicals in the brain. Cacao hydrosol contains trace elements of these neuro-activators and so creates an experience of bliss and beatitude. It’s no wonder that ancient Mayans and Aztecs used cacao in all of their high ceremonies and even made it part of their creation myth!
Bring a little bit of the immortal into your products. Use cacao hydrosol!
Cacao hydrosol has almost endless utility. It makes an unbelievable toner, misting spray, deodorant, and linen refresher. It works anywhere anywhere in personal care products in place of water.
