“The scent of chocolate triggers the release of chemicals in the brain that produces a feeling similar to when one first falls in love,” says Dr. William Comiskey, N.D., founder and president of Keyano Aromatics, Inc., makers of the Chocolate Spa Collection. “In addition to being a sensory indulgence, chocolate contains over 300 different compounds, some of which can have a significant impact on one’s health and beauty. Theobromine, a substance similar to caffeine, produces a slimming effect on the body; magnesium, potassium, and calcium have a calming effect; and polyphenols, which are antioxidants, thwart free radicals.”

> Chocolate Butter Cream: A fat-free hydrating indulgence for the hands, feet, and body with 20% shea butter, grapeseed oil, vitamins A, C, and D, and natural food-grade preservatives.
