We add coffee extract to our products from raw, green, cold-pressed coffee beans (Coffea Arabica). This super plant-based ingredient is rich in chlorogenic acid (CGA), fatty acids, ferulic acid, vitamins, and caffeine.
Anti-inflammatory effects may be attributed to the rich antioxidants and vitamins found in green coffee extract such as chlorogenic acid (CGA) and vitamin E. CGA is linked to reducing hyperpigmentation that may have a connection with inflammation.
High levels of caffeine found in green coffee extract stimulates blood flow and dilates vessels. This increased blood flow can help tighten the skin. The caffeine also acts as a diuretic and pulls moisture out of fat cells. This helps reduce puffiness around the face and eyes.
Green coffee extract is rich in fatty acids and esters such as Arahidic Acid, Linoleic Acid, and Oleic Acid which help to moisturize and hydrate the skin. These polyunsaturated fats also help produce the skin's natural oil barrier, critical in keeping skin hydrated, plumper, and younger looking.
