 organic fair trade coffee grinds

 

coffee grinds act as a natural exfoliator to rid dead skin, helping to keep your body fresh and reveal the smooth, glowing layers of skin. rubbing these grinds on your body also helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite as it is thought that the caffeine assists in dilatating blood vessels beneath the skin to improve overall blood flow. coffee is a rich source of vitamin B3 (niacin), due to a breakdown of the key compound trigonelline. trigonelline breaks down into niacin after coffee beans have been roasted & according to the skin cancer foundation niacin can be helpful in stopping nonmelanoma skin cancers and other unwanted skin growths.
 
organic coconut oil
 
applying coconut oil to your skin helps to keep it hydrated. coconut oil also contains medium chain fatty acids which have antimicrobial properties; helping to prevent the growth of harmful microorganisms. this is especially important for skin health, as several types of skin infections, such as acne & cellulitis, are caused by bacteria or fungi. similar to shea butter coconut oil has also been shown to contain anti-inflammatory properties, helping to reduce heavy inflammation, assisting with acna & eczema as well as further improving your bodies antioxidant status.
 
organic shea butter
 
shea butter contains high concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins hence it is an ideal cosmetic ingredient for softening your skin. shea butter also contains anti-inflammatory and healing properties, helping to calm redness and swelling. the rich tree-nut oils in shea butter can soak into your skin and create a soft barrier that seals in moisture. this moisturizing effect can last for several hours. using shea butter on your body helps to condition, tone, and soothe your skin.
 
100% essential peppermint oil or real dried peppermint leaves (your choice)
 
peppermint oil has an amazing ability to naturally cleanse and rejuvenate your skin, leaving you feeling well restored. both peppermint oils and mint leaves contain antiseptic & antibacterial properties that can work as a natural alternative for clearing acne. the cooling effect in peppermint can help sooth soothe dry & irritated skin. it’s sharp and refreshing scent helps fill your bathroom with freshness and rejuvenation.
