Awww coffee! I can't imagine my day starting without this beverage. One morning while drinking the first sip of Karibu Kaaawa coffee I came up with an idea of making coffee from the coffee grounds. The cup of coffee in the morning is a ritual for me, I love the smell and taste of it. So I thought why wouldn't I start my day with a shower with coffee soapThe first question many asks is always "Why coffee in soap?". The second question is "What makes coffee soap so precious for your skin?".
I've chosen to work with Karibu Kaaawa because I know what type of Arabica I drink and where it comes from. I know if coffee arrives from the farms in Africa, Central and South America or Asia. It's important to known the origin of the product, the farmer which grows and produces coffee and the way coffee is produced. Today, specialty coffee offered by Karibu Kaaawa has great quality compared to comercial coffee. Thus, the benefits for our body with such coffees are more effective and valuable.
Coffee in soap comes in two ingredients: liquid and finely ground beans (coffee grounds). Such natural soap belongs to the world of "zero waste" products and we do good to ourselves and the environment. It is made on the principle of "less is more", which means that production didn't use artificial coffee or color, but only real coffee. Along with coffee, this soap contains only quality vegetable oils and fats such as: olive, coconut, shea, castor, cocoa, WITHOUT palm oil. It doesn't contain preservatives or parabens.In addition to all the above, this natural soap has many benefits for our body such as:
ANTI-AGING - coffee beans are rich in caffeine and vitamin C and have pronounced anti-inflammatory properties, therefore it slows down the formation of wrinkles and the aging process of the skin!
GLOWING EFECT - coffee stimulates extra blood flow on the surface of the skin thus making the skin softer and shinier!
PEELING EFECT - coffee exfoliation is perfect for the whole body as it helps to smooth and tighten the skin!
AGAINST ACNE - has antifungal and antimicrobial properties, which makes it a treatment against acne as well as in reducing dark spots and skin imperfections.
ENCOURAGING A GOOD MOOD - the smell of coffee itself has mild antidepressant properties, and improves circulation and thus raises energy levels and mood.
This is a hand made soap made in collaboration between two small brands, Biljarica and Karibu Kaaawa.
