Green coffee beans are rich in antioxidants that reduce the harmful effects of free radicals in our body. Studies have confirmed that green coffee extract has 100% pure chlorogenic acid, a strong antioxidant. This is why here at Callyssee Cosmetics we make sure to include hefty amounts of these magic little beans in our coffee-infused skincare products.
Why Green Coffee Extract is the Next Skincare Star
Green coffee extract is the next skincare star not only because of its glorious benefits when ingesting it:
- Helps to burn fat
- Reduces appetite
- Helps to improve diabetes treatments
- Reduces cholesterol
- Improves blood circulation
- And the list goes on!
… but also because studies have shown that this magic natural resource, a.k.a. green coffee extract also helps make your skin healthier and happier.
Green coffee extract reduces the effect of free radicals in the body up to 10 times compared to regular tea leaves. Because the beans are roasted there are some other antioxidants like polyphenols and ferulic acid, among others, that slow the aging process and give us youthful skin.
Green coffee beans help our body to remove all kinds of toxic and harmful elements and thus detoxify. In turn, we are able to get rid of dull skin and acne and unveil clearer, more even-looking skin.
Further, these coffee beans strengthen the cells throughout the body and help us manage the effects of stress (and who doesn’t struggle with that?!) which also benefits our skin.
Green coffee beans are unroasted, and because they do not undergo the roasting process, they retain high levels of various chemicals that help delay the signs of skin aging.
Ingredients including theophylline and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which you may have heard of in reference to green tea, can help maintain the health and vitality of our skin to prevent wrinkles.
And it gets better: aside from antioxidants, green coffee beans are rich in fatty acids including Arahidic acid, linoleic acid, and oleic acid — all of which nourish and moisturize the skin to halt sagging, discoloration, and other long-term damage.
Last but not least, green coffee extract fights cellulite — something that virtually every woman alive knows about and might want to celebrate — thanks to the draining and lipolytic actions of its unroasted grains.
For these multiple science-backed reasons, we celebrate green coffee extract as the next skincare star.
