  • Cocoa beans are a good source of healthy minerals
    and vitamins. They also contain potassium, iron
    and copper.
  • On top of that they contain healthy doses of
    calcium and magnesium and for this reason they
    are good for the cardio vascular system and also
    to provide adequate oxygen for all the major
    organs in the body.
  • In Africa the cocoa bean in Nigeria is one of the
    largest export items of agriculture sold in all
    corners of the world.
  • These beans only grow in moist and hot climates
    in the shade of other trees. For this reason
    they mainly grow in South America in the Amazon
    region and, as already said above, in Africa too.

  • The cocoa tree produces pods in which you will
    find the cocoa beans. After they have been
    harvested they are fermented. This changes the
    chemical composition which causes the chocolate
    flavour to come out and this process also changes
    the colour of the bean.
  • In this state they will be shipped as raw
    material to be processed by the buyers. They end
    up as cocoa butter, cocoa powder and cocoa mass.
  • It is said that Switzerland is the biggest
    consumer of cocoa beans. It is not for nothing
    that they make the most delicious chocolates in
    the world. The surprise fact is that the
    chocolate industry shares cocoa with the cosmetic

This is because apart from chocolates and drinks,
cocoa mass is also used in the cosmetic industry.
Ingredients based on foodstuffs are increasingly
used for natural and organic cosmetics. You only
have to visit a beauty salon and you will very
often find a chocolate based body treatment in
their price list. The reason for this is that
this ingredient has a lot to give to the health
conscious. The bean is full of anti-oxidants.
It has anti-ageing properties and also activates
fat burn because of its stimulating effect on the
skin. The cocoa bean provides more antioxidants
than most other foods. Skin products based on
natural ingredients have taken a real hold in the
beauty industry. Women are becoming increasingly
self-conscious about how they look and are trying
to stave off the signs of ageing for as long as
It is said that people who have a daily intake of
cocoa in drinks or other will preserve the
elasticity in their skin. This is linked to the
flavanols it contains keeping blood vessels
supple so that they can deliver oxygenating blood
to all parts of the body including the skin. The
result is higher skin density and better skin
hydration. This reduces roughness and also
prevents scaling of the skin. If you are
