Coffea Arabica berries resemble cherries and their flesh is delicate and highly perishable. These berries were once being discarded until studies found that the coffee seeds had incredible skin care benefits.
The Coffea Arabica fruit is the most potent of the natural antioxidants due to its high levels of polyphenols and phenolic acids. It has such high antioxidant properties because the plant grows in high altitudes where the sun is very strong. So, this plant actually creates natural antioxidants to protect itself from the extreme conditions it grows in. It actually contains more antioxidant benefits than pomegranates, blueberries and green tea.
The powerful antioxidants found in the berries help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, cellular damage, sun damage and other visible signs of aging. It helps fight against free radicals in the air that are usually called by pollution or toxic environments.
The berries from Coffea Arabica are great for dry/flaky, sensitive or mature skin types as they help to improve elasticity, encourage cell regeneration, eliminate toxins, reduce cellulite and orange peel appearance resulting in toned and tighter skin.
