Beautiful on the Inside: A Look at the Benefits of Each Ingredient in The Coffee Scrub
Have you ever found yourself scanning the back of a skincare product sounding out the list of ingredients in your head and asking yourself, “is that even a real word?” Because, girl, same. Hopefully you put that product back where it belongs… on the shelf, and NOT on your skin!
To save you some time (and your skin), let’s filter through the organic and essential ingredients that make The Coffee Scrub the best for you and your skin! The Coffee Scrub contains Ground Organic Coffee Beans, Grapeseed Oil, Mentha Aquatica, Olive Oil, Almond Oil, Glycerin, Macadamia Nut Oil, Vitamin E, Cinnamon Cassia Essential Oil, Vanilla Extract and Water to create an earthy blend of natural oils and antioxidants safe for all skin types. Let’s break down the benefits!
Ground Organic Coffee Beans
We’re not just talking coffee… we’re talking ground organic coffee beans that create a full-bodied base for a full-body scrub! I’m sure it’s not a major surprise that coffee is our main ingredient. What may come as a surprise is the endless benefits that follow. The antioxidants and exfoliating properties found in our organic coffee grounds scrub away dead skin cells, boost blood flow, and clear cellulite to perfect and protect your skin. We talk more about the benefits of coffee for your skin here, join the conversation!
Coffee in the morning, wine in the evening… we know how it goes. Save yourself a glass and enjoy the benefits of both with The Coffee Scrub. Grapeseed oil is a by-product of wine known for its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties. High in omega-6 fatty acids, grapeseed oil strengthens your skin's elasticity to improve your skin’s barrier function, allowing it to bounce back softer and smoother. The antimicrobial properties help fight acne while the antioxidant properties tighten your skin and protect it from the sun. Age like fine wine, literally!
It’s mint to be included! Mentha Aquatica, or “water mint,” is a flowering plant that provides a minty and crisp feel. Like the other oils we are about to mention, mentha aquatica fights against itchy eczema and acne and serves as a skin-conditioning agent. Quit itching and start scrubbing!
Believe it or not, Olive Oil is not just a product for your pasta, but a moisture balancing, damage reversing, natural oil for your skin. Rich in vitamins and antioxidants, olive oil moisturizes your skin without clogging your pores and provides your skin with a youthful and hydrated glow. Compared to your skin’s natural oils, olive oil has a lower oxidation rate which helps block your skin from environmental damage and potential irritants.
Nut just any oil… Almond oil improves your complexion, treats dryness, reverses and reduces skin damage to soothe your skin. As a carrier oil, it allows the other oils in The Coffee Scrub to sink deeper into your skin, filling the gaps in between. The retinoids and emollient properties in almond oil rids your skin of scarring and stretch marks, while retaining moisture to maintain a hydrated look and feel.
The mission of glycerin is to keep you young and fresh with its antimicrobial and exfoliating properties. Not only does it solve your skin's problems, but it preserves the other herbal oils in The Coffee Scrub, keeping it fresh like your skin! Glycerin guides young skin cells to the surface, creating a quick regeneration process, healing minor wounds and scars. As a humectant, glycerin absorbs water from within the skin and brings it to the surface, further hydrating and moisturizing the top layer for fresh and flirty skin!
Macadamia Nut Oil
Considering our bodies do not naturally produce Omega-3 and Omega-6, we turn to food as our main source of these fatty acids. With the help of Macadamia Nut Oil, you can provide your skin with the perfect ratio of the two with just one oil! Together, they reduce skin irritation and enhance cellular growth to build a stronger, more flawless surface. Macadamia Nut Oil is one of the highest sources of palmitoleic fatty acids that play a part in delaying early aging, while the squalene and oleic fatty acid assist with cell regeneration. A superfood for your skin!
Vitamin E-ssential! Although Vitamin E can be found within many of the other ingredients in The Coffee Scrub, why not give you and your skin an extra boost to fight off UV damage and free radicals. Vitamin E easily absorbs into the skin to provide structure and stability, securing a strong and even surface.
Cinnamon Cassia Essential Oil
Coffee and Cinnamon… sounds like a recipe for coziness and comfort to us! Cinnamon Cassia Essential Oil not only provides a soothing scent, but smooths your skin at the same time! Consisting of cinnamaldehyde and eugenol, Cinnamon Cassia Essential Oil can relieve achy joints and massage the stress away.
Vanillin is a polyphenol found in Vanilla Extract that is powered with antioxidant properties to prevent breakouts and help neutralize free radicals. Vanilla Extract, like cinnamon, doesn’t just smell good, but does a lot of good, too! The B vitamins in Vanilla Extract calms irritated and inflamed skin. Sweeter coffee and sweeter skin!
Ever make it to the end of the day only to realize you avoided water with your six consistent cups of coffee? We’ve been there. Just how you fight off those jitters and control your coffee consumption, water balances and blends all of our ingredients together. One word… hydration.
Trash the chemicals and trust the earth! Feed your skin with the organic blend of natural ingredients found in The Coffee Scrub. Each ingredient is intentionally included to provide quality care and charm for you and your skin! Now get to scrubbing, girl!
