Esthechoc – Cambridge Beauty Chocolate is among one of the 50 most innovative, well-crafted beauty products of the past year, chosen by elite panel of dermatologists and cosmetic scientists.
After receiving the Grand Prize and Skincare Award at the Beauty Challenger Awards 2015 in Paris, now it’s time for another prize – the Best Beauty From Within product.
Women’s Health Magazine said about esthechoc: Chocolate that is good for you? Powerful antioxidants including anti-ageing astaxanthin and epicatechins improve dermis circulation and turn your daily treat into a skincare ritual.
Esthechoc scoops Best Beauty From Within Award as the natural product that goes back to basics with unrivalled efficacy.
Esthechoc is the world’s first anti-ageing chocolate and a breakthrough in skin biomarker management – in other words it is a skincare nutricosmetic in a unique form of low-calorie dark chocolate. It increases oxygen saturation of tissues, improves oxygen transport in plasma and reduces oxidative damage in mimicked inflammatory conditions – based on clinical studies at Lycotec Ltd., Cambridge, UK.
It was developed by and based on the technology invented at Cambridge Chocolate Technologies, a company created by Dr Ivan Petyaev as a spin-off from Cambridge University, UK. Dr Petyaev is a medical doctor and cardiologist. He specializes in the development of personalized diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and cosmetic products.
