One day in a coffee shop in Australia, five friends had a drink and an idea: a humble coffee scrub. Their mission was to remove the hyperbole that saturates the skincare industry and make natural skincare fun. Ever since they have been feeding our skin with their natural product ingredients.

  1. Coffee

    Interestingly, the thing that wakes you up in the morning can also wake up your skin! Coffee is great for your skin for three reasons: it stimulates blood flow and this can aid in collagen production, it has the same PH as your skin – so it won’t damage or dry out skin the way some other products can and it is high in antioxidants which target free-radicals caused by things like stress, pollution and sun damage that create skin imperfections.

  2. Sea salt

    Sea salt is a wonder ingredient for the skin. It is a natural anti-septic and exfoliant so it reduces inflammation and targets skin conditions and imperfections as well as treating wounds. 

  3. Almond Oil

    Cold-pressed almond oil hydrates and nourishes the skin using Vitamins A, E and D while reducing the appearance of pigmentation. High in linoleum and oleic acids this oil promotes skin healing.

  4. Cacao Extract

    Cacao extract is extremely high in antioxidants, containing almost 40x that of blueberries. It fights off free radicals and the effects of pollution, reducing the appearing of lines, pigmentation and dark spots

  5. Olive Oil

    Rich in vitamins, minerals and fatty acids this oil nourishes, rejuvenates and protects the skin. It helps to maintain skin elasticity and softness.

  6. Coconut Oil

    Bursting with anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties, this oil is great at targeting breakouts and skin infections, while providing moisture that doesn’t block pores.

  7. Grape Seed Oil

    This antioxidant fights off free radicals, but also contains high levels of Linoleic acid and vitamin E, which assist in cell repair and healing of the skin.
