Coffee body scrub – turning waste into a resource
Coffee is a popular beverage consumed all over the world. However, with worldwide coffee production rising tremendously, the amount of waste is, unfortunately, increasing accordingly. We, at Impact Roasters, joined efforts in sustainability and hence try to engage in the circular economy by reusing our coffee grounds in various ways.
Inspired by the aspiration for a more sustainable way of living, our team among other products developed the coffee body scrub. The coffee grounds used as a base for the body scrub is a waste product, and we decided to put it to good use by turning waste into a resource.
Coffee in your beauty products
Coffee is filled with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, and because of its the stimulating effect can be an ideal ingredient for your skin. To fully exploit its health properties, we combine spent coffee grounds with other products and turn into moisturizing body scrub.
With a base of almond oil, coconut sugar, cinnamon and scented with peppermint essential oil the body scrub is to exfoliate, moisturize and antioxidize your skin. Applying spent coffee grounds together with coconut sugar can increase your body circulation, whereas almond oil certainly makes your skin soft and smooth. In general, coffee grounds firm and tighten skin cells, therefore, being an ideal natural anti-aging booster for your skin.
