“Fuente de Juventud” Fountain of Youth Facial Soap

Scientists at Cacao Biotechnologies & Cacao Prieto have developed a new method of fermenting and extracting cacao beans that significantly increases the potency of natural antioxidants. The molecules being developed are Epicatechin based bioflavoniods with extraordinary antioxidant activity; more than 1000 times more potent than similar molecules derived from green tea.

In collaboration with ASP (Art, Science, Passion) and founder Rhett Butler, a facial soap was formulated with our developed Cacao Epicatechin antioxidant. The soap is truly a fountain of youth product formulated with natural and organic ingredients it posses a high percentage of functional ingredients. There is no “angel dusting” in this meticulous formula that spared no expense for function.

UV rays, IR radiation, pollution, and lifestyle factors generate damaging free radicals that can prematurely age skin. Antioxidants neutralize these unstable molecules, acting as a second line of defense against photodamage and accelerated aging.  This soap will improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation by neutralizing free radicals and stimulating collagen production.

The unique soap’s ingredients include: Epicatechin antioxidants from Cacao Prieto, Widow Jane mineral water, olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, almond oil, activated carbon, iron oxide, brown sugar, honey, green tea, urea, jojoba oil, macadamia oil, avacado oil, rose hip oil, grape seed oil, sheat germ oil, evening primrose oil, camellia tea seed oil, sunflower oil, sesame oil, walnut oil, perrila oil, apricot oil, hazelnut oil, vitamin E, bentonite clay,  honeysuckle oil, chamomile oil, blood orange oil, neroli oil, sweet orange oil, myrrh oil, cardamon oil, bergamot oil.

The soap will be branded and marketed by ASP later this year as part of their “black” line of natural products. The below samples were packaged by Cacao Prieto for our beta test panel of doctors and consumers.

    I am fortunate to be on the beta test panel. I have used the soap for 4 weeks. I have noticed my skin is much softer than it was, and I have received many unsolicited comments that my skin looks great. I have not had any breakouts since using the soap and it truly is something special. I’m hooked and am looking forward to other products being added to this line.

    I am scientist at Cacao Prieto and also on the beta test panel. You might think I would be biased towards a product I worked on but I will say I am very critical of my own work.

    I am mostly bald with a beard. I have been using the soap for three months now, my skin (face and scalp) has never looked better and my beard is super soft! I love this soap.

    In addition to our Cacao antioxidants in this formula we included cacao theobromine. The combination of which we are patent pending on, and has been proven to be an excellent natural UVA and UVB sunscreen with no harmful side effects. In fact two recent studies have shown a reduction in skin cancer rates as high as 70%, when applied topically.

    As a bald man with fair skin and freckles I can attest that the formulation work well for me. I use daily in the shower before I go out and now it’s a routine for me. Strange because I have never been loyal to any particular soap before, never before feeling it mattered…
