CoffeeBerry: there’s more to Coffee than just the Beans

Antioxidants play a large role in skin care. These can be found in natural ingredients, such as blueberries, green tea and pomegranate. There is another recently discovered ingredient that has even greater antioxidant benefits. CoffeeBerry® extract is a powerful antioxidant that started being incorporated into skin care products in the past couple of years. It comes from the fruit of the coffee arabica plant. The actual berries of the plant resemble cherries and the flesh is delicate and highly perishable.  Coffeeberry extract is the most potent of the natural antioxidants due to its high levels of polyphenols and phenolic acids.

Why does it have such powerful antioxidant properties? The plants grow in high altitudes and close to the equator, where the sun’s rays are very strong. The plant actually creates the natural antioxidants to protect itself from the extreme conditions it grows in. As a result, the coffee berry extract prevents fine lines, wrinkles and cellular damage to skin, while reducing the appearance of existing fine lines, sun damage and other visible signs of aging. This extract also helps to smooth skin and neutralize free radicals. It has an anti-inflammatory effect on skin, which is helpful for those with eczema or dermatitis. These benefits are not found by drinking coffee as the coffee bean is much lower in antioxidants than the flesh of the surrounding fruit. Furthermore, the roasting process destroys many of the antioxidants found in the coffee bean.

How can CoffeeBerry benefit us?

When applied topically to the skin, CoffeeBerry has been shown to restore moisture and elasticity, making the skin softer and more supple. It can also soften fine lines and wrinkles as well as minimizing skin discolorations. CoffeeBerry has even shown to reverse the effects of sun damage, commonly referred to as photoaging in the cosmeceutical industry. Antioxidants like CoffeeBerry actually boost the effectiveness of sunscreens for added protection against the sun’s harmful rays.
