What is Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Seed Extract?

Coffee Seed extract, Latin Name Coffea arabica, is derived from the coffee bean and has remarkable benefits for our skin. This extract is rich in essential fatty acids, sterols, and vitamin E, making it a potent antioxidant that plays a crucial role in safeguarding our skin from various forms of damage, particularly from the harmful effects of UV rays.

Incorporating Coffee Seed extract into our products provides a natural and effective way to protect and nourish the skin, resulting in a radiant and youthful complexion.

What are the benefits of Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Seed Extract for your skin?

One of the key reasons why Coffee Seed extract is highly beneficial for our skin is its ability to provide robust protection against skin damage, including sunburn. The antioxidants present in the extract act as a shield, neutralising the effect of sun exposure and environmental pollutants on the skin. By doing so, it helps prevent oxidative stress on the skin, which is a major contributor to premature ageing and other skin-related issues. Please remember, it is not a replacement for SPF. A high factor SPF should be worn daily.

Moreover, Coffee Seed extract goes beyond mere protection and actively contributes to the prevention of photoaging. Photoaging refers to the ageing of the skin caused by prolonged exposure to the sun's UV rays. The extract's high concentration of essential fatty acids and vitamin E aids in maintaining skin elasticity and suppleness, counteracting the detrimental effects of UV radiation on collagen and elastin fibres.

In addition to its role in preventing photoaging, Coffee Seed extract addresses inflammatory skin disorders. Inflammation is a common underlying factor in various skin conditions, including redness, irritation, and certain types of acne. The anti-inflammatory properties of Coffee Seed extract help soothe the skin, reducing redness and promoting a calmer complexion.
