COCOA BEANS (chocolate)

     Theobroma cacoa, the scientific name of the plant from which
raw cocoa is made and the main ingredient in chocolate , literally means " food of the God" .  Basically chocolate is made up of  Cocoa beans. 

                                            So friends here i am going write about the properties and uses of cocoa bean powder. Basically Cocoa powder is the one used to make face masks but its called chocolate face mask every where because chocolate mask sounds much more appealing. We can't use chocolate in masks because they contains relatively low levels of cocoa compared to high calorie, high fat ingredients such as sugar, dairy, artificial flavors and additives instead of doing anything good they will harm your skin.

                   Chocolate which  you use in mask should contain maximum amount of cocoa in it and very less amount of sugar and other ingredients. Some people even use dark chocolates but instead of using any type of chocolate one should prefer unsweetened COCOA  BEAN  POWDER. Which u can easily  get from market.
