With the website launching a few weeks ago everything has been a little bit crazy!!
However, we’re starting to finally get into a nice routine and thought a blog post was seriously overdue!
So, what better way to return to blogging than to look back to when the Coffee Scrub Company began..
If I can take a moment to introduce myself; I’m Hannah, founder of the Coffee Scrub Co. and I’d love to give you a little more information on when my passion for natural beauty products began.
I’ve always been passionate about two things: cooking and coffee, and when I say coffee I mean REAL coffee, like my grandmother used to make! For me absolutely nothing beats the smell of freshly brewed coffee in the morning, it sounds a little stereotypical for me to blame my Italian heritage for this love affair but it’s legitimately the only reason I have!
I practically grew up in the kitchen but it wasn’t until 2014 that I began to understand the real concept of health with food and lifestyle. Once I started to get to grips with this industry I became fascinated by the vegan lifestyle and beauty regimes, there was so much evidence to support the idea of plant based lifestyles/products being incredibly more beneficial to the body. Obviously after seeing all the research I had to try making products for myself, I was tired of using overpriced products from mainstream stores that firstly didn’t have great results for me personally and secondly contained a variety of chemicals which actually cause a lot of health issues to the body in the long term.
The results I started to get from using my own products blew me away. Straight away I noticed how soft my skin felt and just how much healthier my skin and hair were beginning to appear, I started to feel so confident in myself that I knew it was something I had to turn into a product that I could share with people everywhere. (I know we shouldn’t be a society that encourages people to focus on their looks too much but personally speaking I can’t think of anything better than being 100% comfortable in your own skin, especially when you feel so good naturally you aren’t hiding behind layers of makeup!)
So why coffee scrubs? Well out of the many things I made at home the coffee scrubs were always one of my favourites. Firstly because I just absolutely love the smell of coffee, so for me there’s nothing better than rubbing that delicious smell all over my body!
But more importantly, the scrubs have a list of health benefits which make them incredibly effective for a variety of problems. The coffee contains high amounts of two things: caffeine and antioxidants, this is an amazing combination as it naturally creates a synergy that targets problematic areas such as psoriasis/acne whilst also helping reduce cellulite and puffiness. Personally I haven’t ever suffered from major issues with my skin but of course being a girl in today’s society I’m conscious of any stretch marks or ‘dimples’ I may have, so to find a product that visibly reduces these areas whilst leaving my skin incredibly moisturised is absolutely superb! (I am obviously biased here but once you try the scrubs for yourself I have no doubt you’ll feel the same way!)
The scrubs work as an exfoliant and a moisturiser combined, I love the simplicity of jumping into the shower and taking a handful of the scrub, rubbing it in then after a few minutes rinsing it off, it’s so easy literally anybody can do it. Also it’s brilliant for people like myself who are usually in some kind of a rush and don’t have time for long beauty regimes!
I hope you feel like you’ve learnt a little more about The Coffee Scrub Co. and why we began. I will be updating the blog frequently with information about the scrubs and ingredients we use, so that our customers can learn a little more about health and why looking after the outside can sometimes help us look after our insides!
If you have any queries please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Thanks for taking the time to read this little addition to the blog, I hope you enjoy the rest of your Thursday night and have a brilliant weekend!
