Seattle’s Sweet Beauty skin care adds white chocolate to the mix

It’s no secret that chocolate is balm for the soul, but it turns out it also boasts moisturizing superpowers for your skin. SoDo-based organic skin care purveyor Sweet Beauty has added Theo Chocolate’s white chocolate to its new line of zesty body lotions and scrubs. Our favorite scents? Fragrant tangerine truffle and mojito ($22/8 oz.). Owner Lisa Françoise hand-mixes the moisturizing exfoliants in small batches, adding lime and mint or tangerine butter to the rich honey, organic cocoa butter and cane sugar base for scrubs that smell tantalizing enough to nibble. And considering that all of Sweet Beauty’s skin care products are organic and paraben free, lick away if you like. We’re happy just asking people to smell our freshly scrubbed, decadently scented skin. Available at Julep Nail Parlor (multiple locations, including downtown, 1427 Fifth Ave.; 206.985.0088; or at
