INCI: Butylene glycol (and) Water (and) Theobroma cacao (cocoa) shell extract
Definition: Phyto-active ingredient titrated in caffeine and theobromine, obtained by hydroglycolic extraction from cocoa bean shells.
Mode of action: Well known for its stress-relieving properties, cocoa contains molecules which can stimulate the release of B-endorphins (“pleasure molecules”) from human keratinocytes. Rich in xanthine bases (caffeine, theobromine) and flavonoids (promote the microcirculation), CAOBROMINE UP limits fat-storage by stimulating lipolysis and allows the skin to get back its smooth and uniform appearance.
CAOBROMINE UP at 1% stimulates by 153% the release of non-esterified fatty acids arising from lipolysis activation.
USE LEVEL: 1-3%
