Fresh on the shelves at Cedra, you can walk in today and find one of our new lines, Java Skin Care. JAVA Coffee Infused Skin Care products marry the rejuvenating properties of green coffee - one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants, with a unique blend of organic essential oils (like argan, pumpkin, and rosemary) that are proven to nourish, repair and protect the skin. This inspired union between coffee and essential oils produces JAVA’s remarkable skincare formula, which is unlike anything else on the market.
Botanically the species of green coffee that we are interested in is Coffea Arabica. The word ‘green’ refers to the immature coffee beans that have been un-roasted and processed cold so that they retain their waxy outer layer. Think the same way that people cold press juice, to retain the nutrients. Since the beans are not exposed to the roasting they retain a higher percentage of volatile components including the well known alkaloid theophylline like that found in green tea and the wrinkle stopping amino acid; gamma-Aminobutyric acid.
