When developing the Crema Esencial, we considered an endless number of powerful botanicals - but instantly fell in love with White Porcelain Cacao. This hero ingredient in our youth-preserving cream is a 100% natural ingredient that has recently been prized in beauty for its impressive skincare benefits.
What is Porcelain Cacao?
Porcelain Cacao is derived from a rare and premium Peruvian white cacao bean – criollo porcelana – prized by chocolate lovers for its exceptional taste and quality. Our extract is sustainably sourced from local cultivators in Alto Piura in Peru, and has been extensively studied to show its ability to help protect the skin against environmental aggressors and blue light pollution.
The Skincare Benefits of Porcelain Cacao
When infused in skincare, Porcelain Cacao has been shown to provide key environmental defense. It is rich in peptides, saccharides, and polyphenols that help to maintain youthful, vital, protected skin and to protect from the signs of blue light pollution.
Studies have shown that blue light pollution – overexposure to blue light that emanates from our devices - can cause “Digital Aging.” In other words, it can cause oxidative stress to the skin as well as the production of damaging free radicals, which can lead to premature aging.
When 60% of people spend more than six hours a day in front of their devices, addressing this side effect of our modern lives is more relevant now than ever.
How to Incorporate Porcelain Cacao into Your Routine
You can infuse your routine with the benefits of Porcelain Cacao through our Crema Esencial. We recommend daily application of our universal moisturizer – a midweight, soft cream that instantly absorbs into the skin, and layers beautifully with serums, toners, and essences. The Porcelain Cacao extract in this product helps to maintain youthful, vibrant skin with bounce and elasticity you can feel. We hope you love experiencing its beautiful benefits!
