Skin products are directly absorbed into the bloodstream and a growing number of body care products feature healthful, organic ingredients that are entirely beneficial to your skin.

Organic body products means their ingredients are genetically pure, not modified. No harmful pesticides are used and farmers employ sustainable farming practices.

More and more, we’re finding chocolate and cacao making their way into skin care and body products. Not only do you find cocoa butter in lotions and sunscreens, but it’s a central component of many new body care products.

One product,  Neroli Orange & Chocolate Mint Body Lotion 12 fl oz, features certified organic chocolate mint floral water and chocolate mint oil. Certified vegan, this product don’t perform animal testing or use animal by products.

We also like the cruelty free Voluptuous Body Lotion Chocolate Orange 7 fl oz.  In addition to having certified organic cocoa blossom, this product features organic red tea blended with jojoba oil.  It’s packed with richness and antioxidants.
