It’s what we have all been waiting to hear Chocolates are good for you. And can help with mindful living and glowing skin. Sakari Life’s Beauty Chocolates are not only comfort food but also a health supplement and rejuvenating agent. For the sweet-toothed.
Sakara Life’s pyramid-shaped Beauty Chocolates are meant to give a ‘daily collagen boost’ that will ensure glowing skin in two weeks. Each chocolate contains plant-based, collagen-boosting phytoceramides that are clinically proven to improve skin elasticity, hydration, and texture. Its makers claim the chocolates help to beautify the skin from within rather than tackling surface issues. Sakara Life recommends a daily ‘dose’ of one or two chocolates, explaining that each one of the gluten-free pyramid-shaped candies contains 70mg of plant-based, collagen-boosting phytoceramides derived from wheat’.
Sakara Life is a New York City-based wellness and lifestyle brand founded in 2012 by Arizonans Whitney Tingle and Danielle DuBoise, who bootstrapped the company with $700 they raised at a dinner party. Now available across the U.S. with offices in N.Y. and L.A., Sakara Life has changed the lives of thousands of people with its holistic approach to food and innovative meal delivery program nutritionally designed and chef-crafted to nourish the body, mind, and spirit.
Sakara Life has quickly become a favorite among celebrities such as Chrissy Teigen, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Drew Barrymore. A debut cookbook, “Eat Clean Play Dirty,” was released in April 2019.
Says Whitney: “Raw dark cacao is a fantastic superfood that’s very high in youth-promoting, disease-fighting antioxidants! It also contains compounds that boost mental clarity. So the chocolates are incredibly functional.
‘We chose phytoceramides as the beauty ingredient in our Beauty Chocolates not only because they are 100% plant-based, but also because they are clinically proven to improve skin’s texture in a fortnight with daily use.
“Ceramides are naturally occurring lipids in the skin. Think of your skin cells as bricks, and ceramides as the cement in between them. Over time, these ceramides become depleted, resulting in wrinkles, fine lines, and dull, dry skin.
‘You can moisturize the top layer of your skin with creams and serums, but phytoceramides replenish the skin’s cell barrier and stimulate collagen from within, helping to seal in moisture, plump up the cells, smooth wrinkles and boost your glow.’
Sakara Life believes that complexion should be addressed from the inside and that two beauty chocolates a day will keep wrinkles and Botox at bay.
