Making Use of Spent Coffee within the Beauty World

Making Use of Spent Coffee within the Beauty World

Little known fact I don't drink coffee, I can not stomach the taste but really do enjoy the fragrance - it almost smells like home! For coffee fans of all calibres there are a few great and somewhat new beauty products to be discovered most of which are ethically responsible, and help to prevent more coffee from joining landfill.

Making Use of Spent Coffee within the Beauty World

First up we have Recoffee Shampoo and Conditioner, a set of hair care products that have been formulated with Recoffee Oil - a natural oil, rich in antioxidants that is extracted from 100% recycled coffee grounds. Both products are created with 99.3% Natural Ingredients, along with certified organic foaming agents - kind to the environment and the hair. Even if you do not enjoy coffee fragrances (this is fairly mild and disappears from the hair once rinsed clear), you must give this product line a chance if you have dried out tresses. The Recoffee Shampoo and Conditioner has been formulated to repair and restore dried out hair - ideal if like myself you have bleached hair. It is one of the few shampoo's that I find to be truly hydrating and the conditioning. The Recoffe conditioner is fairly intensive so it may not be ideal for finer hair types but perfect for those in need of a deep condition. You can find the entire Recoffee line up here - link, prices range from £17.95 - £36.75.

You may be aware of Minor Figures? A prominent name within the coffee industry, well the brand has teamed up KeepCup to create an environmentally sound soap. Not only is the Minor Figures Coffee Soap handmade with an olive oil base and an abundance of essential oils Vanilla, Coconut and Star Anise but makes use of spent coffee to prevent it going into landfill (used coffee grounds). It has been designed to invigorate and exfoliate the skin in one quick step, smells great and is SLS free. The Minor Figures Coffee Soap (£5) makes a great hand soap and/or a beautiful gift for any coffee lover. You can find it here - link.

Now you can get your caffeine fix while making a difference to the environment!
