Chocolate Panache: Sweet Treats That Benefit Skin

British beauty brand The Organic Pharmacy has plans for candy bar made from polyphenol-rich organic dark chocolate.

Brad Pitt, candlelight and a little imagination likely tops the list of the ultimate fantasy for many women. However, complexion-enhancing chocolate probably is a close second. While Brad is busy with his brood, The Organic Pharmacy is cooking up candy using polyphenol-rich organic dark chocolate and açaí, goji and blueberries, which are meant to boost the skin’s ability to combat wrinkles. “They’re really good ingredients to boost energy and boost the metabolism,” says Margo Marrone, co-founder of the British beauty brand. The dairy- and sugar-free bars will be available from February priced at about $5. Once that fantasy is fulfilled, organic pharmacy will move on to realizing another: chocolate meant to aid slimming, which will bow in May.
