independent validation by the jury of leading beauty experts from the cosmetic, beauty and fashion industry endorses the anti-ageing chocolate developed by Lycotec as a leading nutracosmetic and best new beauty product
Cambridge UK (PRWEB UK) 25 September 2015
Last week in Paris at one of the most prestigious Cosmetic Industry events an anti-ageing dark chocolate from Cambridge won two top awards: Best in Skin category and the Grand Prize: http://www.lycotec.com
Yet this chocolate is not for topical application but for conventional oral enjoyable administration. - to support health and beauty of the skin from “within”.
The dark chocolate is imbued with technologies from the Cambridge based company Lycotec and marketed by its spin off company Cambridge Chocolate Technologies.
It is based on 72% Cocoa dark chocolate and represents a combination of two of the most powerful antioxidants with pleotropic anti-ageing properties – cocoa flavanols and marine carotenoid astaxanthin. The blend of proprietary technologies behind the laboratory and clinical development of this product empowers these bioactive molecules to such a level that one 7.5g piece of the chocolate delivers flavanol activity equivalent to 100g of dark chocolate, and astaxanthin to the level of 300-400g of wild Alaskan salmon.
This chocolate is able to not only suppress markers of sub-clinical inflammation in blood, but also reverse age-related depression of microcirculation and blood supply to such peripheral tissues as subcutaneous fat and skin. This can consequently result in a boost of oxygen delivery to these tissues and restoration of their respiration - the essential physiological need in controlling and supporting skin health.
Dr. Ivan Petyaev, the inventor of the technology, said that he is delighted by the independent validation by the jury of leading beauty experts from the cosmetic, beauty and fashion industry.
Their recognition of the company’s scientific evidence, skin health benefits and sensory properties of the chocolate endorses it not only as a leading nutra-cosmetic but also best new beauty product.
