Theobroma cacaoTHE SECRET FOR
This tropical tree with large leaves and small yellow flowers produces a large pod which contains the precious cocoa beans. Originally from Mexico, the Cacao tree requires warm, humid climates; due to its sensitivity to sunlight it grows exclusively in the shade of other trees.
The Mayans made a divine drink from Cacao, one reserved exclusively for the king and his court—hence its scientific name “Theobroma” meaning “food of the gods.” Cacao also acts as a stimulant and antidepressant and has cardiovascular protective properties.

The Creation of Crème Prodigieuse®
THE CREATION OF CRÈME PRODIGIEUSE®
NUXE’s R&D used Cacao cells from the leaves of South American Cacao trees and obtained through biotechnology . NUXE Laboratory identified these cells as rich in polyphenols (high in free-radical fighting value). Combined with sea lavender and blue Ageratum (flossflower), they protect the skin from oxidative stress, one of the main causes of premature skin aging. This exceptional antioxidant effect has been demonstrated in an original test conducted on the finished product and on volunteers.
