I came across this brand recently and purchased two of their products. Optiat is a brand that started off recycling ground Arabica coffee beans from cafe’s around London and up-cycled them in to body scrubs. Using Arabica coffee beans in their scrubs has many benefits for the skin. The ground coffee acts as a natural exfoliator, coffee has the same PH levels as skin and so won’t leave your skin dry, caffeine helps stimulate blood flow and helps to renew and regenerate the skin and the brewed coffee grounds are high in antioxidants which helps to fight free radicals.
The two products that I purchased are the potent peppermint hungover coffee scrub and the Nourishing exfoliating face mask.
The potent peppermint hungover coffee scrub is made from a blend of used Arabica coffee grounds and peppermint essential oils; potent peppermint perks up your mood after a night on the town. The coffee grounds act as a natural exfoliator, whilst the caffeine stimulates blood flow, effective against cellulite and stretch marks.
The nourishing exfoliating face mask is made from mineral-rich rhassoul Clay which gently draws out impurities, while English Hemp Husks polish away dead skin cells. Calendula and Marshmallow Root hydrate, soothe and boost cell renewal.
Other products that Optiat make are travel size scrubs, Optiat re-cup which is a reusable coffee cup as well as various gift boxes; for him, the hangover healer, the post gym lifter, the night out prep box and for the love of scrub boxes which all look amazing – I can’t wait to try the night out prep box.
Another reason to buy products from Optiat is that they’re Vegan Friendly and Cruelty Free. Check out their website here.
