Need a Valentine’s Gift for your Spouse, or Family Member or maybe a Galentine’s Gift for your Bestie?

JAVA Skin Care has awesome items for you to consider – at 30% off sitewide now until February 10th, no code needed.

Since we are still spending so much time at home and working so hard to stay Covid-Free, consider these skin care products that can create awesome At-Home-Spa Experiences.

First on the list – Sexy Serum, our stimulating and sensual caffeine-infused massage oil. This super-moisturizing oil can be used all over your body – even the sexy bits. Consider back massages, relaxing foot massages or just set your imagination free – it’s up to you! Our Sexy Serum bottle comes in a lovely pink satin pouch.

Next, we have our gorgeous “Serum – The Collection” combining our three most luxurious products: Eye Serum, Face Serum and Body Serum. We put them together in a onyx-color gift box with a unicorn-pink ribbon. All I can say is “So Lush.” And… at 30% off, such a great deal.

Consider including a Hand & Body Wash to your Serum Collection gift and you have the makings of a great Spa Night. Our Hand & Body Wash makes for a super-foamy bubble bath – but without the harsh ingredients that have been know to cause irritation after a bubbly soak. Then, after luxuriating in the tub, Serum up your whole body, from face to toes. You will feel cleansed, relaxed and moisturized. Ahhhhh…. Can you feel it?

Finally, let me tell you about our Valentine’s Day Gift Set, the combination of an awesome Lip Care Duo along with a vial of Rose Petals and Chocolate Hearts. What more could you want? This collection also comes in a gift box with, what else, a lovely pink bow – super cute.

Revered since ancient times, Roses are known for more than just their beauty. The petals have soothing & cleansing properties for the skin. Consider a Facial Steam for your Spa Night. Here is a recipe to get you started:

  • Bring a pot of water close to a boil on your stove top
  • Add the vial of Rose Petals to a heat-proof bowl
  • Pour the hot water over the petals
  • Cover the bowl with a towel for 5-10 minutes to allow the petals to steep 
  • Place the towel over your head and lean your face over the bowl, about 12 inches away, to absorb steam and vapors
  • Keep breathing in vapors for 15 minutes
  • Gently pat dry
  • Finish with a moisturizer – we suggest JAVA Face Serum

Of course, all of our JAVA Skin Care products make great gifts – don’t forget something for yourself!

Oh, and we love to hear from you, so please consider leaving a review on our website or check us out on Facebook and Instagram – @javaskincare

Happy Valentine’s Day ❤️

xoxo, Your JAVA Team

JAVA Coffee Infused Skin Care Launches New Oil for Intimate Skin

Sexy Serum website banner

As Reported By BX3 – September 28, 2020, 14:35 GMT

Sexy Serum Uses Caffeine and Organic Ingredients for Skin Care Down There!

JAVA’s caffeine-infused intimate oil has a rich silky texture to create exciting sensations. The combination of organic green coffee and argan oil is wonderful for stimulating blood flow.”— Stephanie Additon, CEO, JAVA Skin Care

JAVA Coffee Infused Skin Care, a women-owned and operated eco-luxury skincare line made with organic green coffee has launched its newest product, Sexy Serum. Sexy Serum, formulated as a moisturizing and nourishing oil for intimate skin, boasts a rich silky texture which is helpful for combating vulva dryness. Tasteless, odorless, and PH balanced at a 5, JAVA’s newest serum is filled with all-natural caffeine and botanicals and can be used daily; in addition, Sexy Serum is non-irritating so there’s no need to wash it off after intimate encounters

“More and more people want intimate wellness products that are not only highly effective but also made without harsh chemicals,” said Stephanie Additon, CEO of JAVA. “This increasing demand for natural and organic skincare products is shaking up the beauty industry. In fact, intimate and sexual wellness products are expected to reach $40 Billion by 2025.”

According to the NIH, nearly 24 percent of U.S. women are affected with one or more pelvic floor disorders. Vaginal dryness occurs in women of all ages, but it becomes much more common after menopause. In addition, Harvard Women’s Health Watch reports that it’s estimated that the problem affects about half of postmenopausal women — most of whom, possibly as many as 90 percent — don’t seek treatment for their symptoms, which include not only dryness but also irritation and pain during sexual intercourse.

Organic Green coffee, the signature ingredient in JAVA products contains significantly higher natural antioxidant levels than virtually any known plant on earth, and delivers unique rejuvenation properties to the skin. Green coffee is high in fatty acids, vitamin E and sterols. It’s has polyphenols like chlorogenic, quinic & ferulic acid making it a powerful antioxidant. Some studies have shown that green coffee helps with elastin and collagen production. It’s also anti-inflammatory & helps with all the basics of anti-aging like firmness, texture and wrinkles.

Customers are flocking to Sexy Serum, praising its unique tasteless, odorless properties, all-natural formulation, and silky feel.

“My first favorite find from the Indie Beauty Expo LA 2020. Sexy Serum from JAVA Skin Care, a silky blend of beautiful oils like green coffee, coconut, evening primrose and more for all over but especially your sexy bits. Edible,” says “Claire McCormack, author at Beauty Independent.

“JAVA’s caffeine-infused intimate oil has a rich silky texture to create exciting sensations,” says Additon. The combination of organic green coffee and argan oil is wonderful for stimulating blood flow. We increased the glide of our serum with all-natural, organic oils that are super-moisturizing as well.”

Sexy Serum is available on https://javaskincare.com and samples are available upon request to members of the media.

Steph Says: October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is such a transition month.  We begin the month with summer-like days still lingering, with some 80 degree afternoons and beautiful beach days, but few beach-goers.

We end the month deep into Fall.  Leaves have turned and many have already fallen.  We celebrate Halloween (keep an eye open for our spooky sale later this month).

October is also National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. At JAVA Skin Care, as a women-owned and run business,  women’s health issues are always of highest concern to us. We are acutely aware of the battles faced by so many women – as well as men- who are fighting for their lives every day with Breast Cancer. We would like to share some facts and links to breast cancer information as part of our support of this very important annual worldwide campaign:

WearItPInk tells us:

“The earlier breast cancer is diagnosed, the better the chance of successful treatment. So it’s important to check your breasts regularly and see your GP if you notice a change.

Common breast cancer signs and symptoms include:

  • a lump or swelling in the breast, upper chest or armpit – you might feel the lump but not see it
  • a change to the skin, such as puckering or dimpling
  • a change in the color of the breast – the breast may look red or inflamed
  • a change to the nipple, for example it has become pulled in (inverted)
  • rash or crusting around the nipple
  • any unusual liquid (discharge) from either nipple
  • changes in size or shape of the breast” 1

…and, from The American Cancer Society:

“How Common Is Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancers. Currently, the average risk of a woman in the United States developing breast cancer sometime in her life is about 12%. This means there is a 1 in 8 chance she will develop breast cancer. This also means there is a 7 in 8 chance she will never have the disease. 

Current year estimates for breast cancer

The American Cancer Society’s estimates for breast cancer in the United States for 2019 are: 

  • About 268,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women. 
  • About 62,930 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be diagnosed (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer). 
  • About 41,760 women will die from breast cancer.” 2

“There are some things that might be risk factors for breast cancer, but the research is not yet clear about whether they really affect breast cancer risk.

A great deal of research has been reported and more is being done to understand possible environmental influences on breast cancer risk.

Chemicals in the environment that have estrogen-like properties are of special interest. For example, substances found in some plastics, certain cosmetics and personal care products, pesticides, and PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) seem to have such properties. In theory, these could affect breast cancer risk.” 3

JAVA Skin Care Ingredients

Breast Cancer Action warns of possible link between cancer and cosmetics:

“Many cosmetics contain chemicals known as parabens and phthalates, which recent studies indicate may be linked to cancer development…

… Many diseases like cancer, asthma, birth defects, and learning disabilities are on the rise, and growing evidence indicates that these health problems are linked to the chemicals we are exposed to in our air, water, food, and everyday products. It’s time we start acting to protect human health.” 4

At JAVA Skin Care, we believe that everything we put on our bodies can make a difference in our overall health . Our skin is our largest organ and it is responsible for keeping every other organ and other parts protected. It is also porous, and as such, absorbs many of the products that we lather on. For this reason, we only use non-toxic, all-natural ingredients in every one of our JAVA Skin Care products. If you have concerns about what you are putting on your body, then check us out.

This month, we are offering our Wonderbar Soaps at 20% off. Get yourself a healthy, moisturizing clean!

Breast Cancer touches all of us, whether it is through our family, friends, neighbors, co-workers or more directly, ourselves.  Together, through research, awareness, education, and early detection, we will make a difference and a cure will be found.

Benefit #892 Dog Lovers Unite!

Ok – this is not a scientific report. But we have heard the same thing now from completely different JAVA tribe members.

dog and girl

Tribe members with dogs are telling us they are getting a ton of kisses from their dog after using JAVA serum. Maybe it’s the fragrance. Maybe it’s the post use glow.

But whatever the reason, it’s always good when women’s best friend wants to tell you how great you look and how great you are!

Behind the Bean: What’s in JAVA Serum?

47059387_2102544776722459_8644418635881629786_n

When we set out to create an all-natural skin care company, we looked to anchor our products on a signature formulation. We were delighted to see our friends @ The Truth We Seek post the update above.

All the oils listed were candidates for our base and as followers of JAVA know, we chose Argan Oil to mix with our proprietary green coffee bean extract. In combination, they pull a number of additional benefits listed under other oils such anti-oxidant, anti-aging, & anti-acne. We are working on a top secret new ingredient addition right now in the JAVA Lab, pulling from essential minerals from the sea. If successful, it will open a new vector of skin care benefits for JAVA Tribe customers.

Stay tuned!

THERE’S A COFFEE INFUSED COCKTAIL FOR YOUR FEET, SO CHEERS TO YOUR NEXT SPA DAY WITH YOUR BESTIES

(Written and posted by PattyJ.com on September 28, 2018

Your friends and neighbors might live for posting latte art or their three olive martinis, but they probably have no idea how coffee and vodka could be the keys to softer, smoother feet this fall.

Yea, there’s an espresso martini…for your feet.

It’s a thing, and my friends at JAVA Skin Care and Perfectly Nailed in EG invited me to try their JAVA Espresso Martini Pedicure earlier this week. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but also knew my feet weren’t looking too hot after all those steps logged while walking around in Birkenstocks for most of the summer, so why not? All I had to lose were some calluses (TMI?).

But let’s begin at the beginning of any pedicure – the foot soak. We’ve all been there. To use your phone or not? Wouldn’t want it falling in the water. Maybe flip thru the latest issue of People or US Weekly instead and catch up on the adventures of Blake Lively, Tracee Ellis Ross, and JLO. But this was no ordinary soak.

This one included epsom salts, vanilla oil, and vodka. Wait, what? VODKA?!? That detail had my attention, so forget the smart phones and gossip-y glossy mags. According to lovely ppl at Perfectly Nailed, liquor in general – and vodka* in particular – has natural antiseptic properties that help break down anything yucky that might be lurking in cracked heels and elsewhere on your feet.

*Perfectly Nailed also incorporates tequila and whiskey into other pedi options because they too work as natural antiseptics that kill bacteria and germs that attach to the skin’s surface.

The next step is an exfoliation with Java’s antioxidant rich and moisturizing scrub made with organic green coffee. The coffee scent is a nice treat too. Immediately following that? Hot towels and a foot and ankle massage with the Java Serum, two things most of us never do at home (just listened to a podcast, the two hosts who are beauty fanatics were saying the only beauty treatments that should be done at home are shaving, teeth brushing, and hair washing.). Sooo relaxing you might find yourself feeling like you’re going to float home on a cloud or something.

Also, as someone who’s perpetually on the lookout for clean and cruelty free (no animal testing) beauty and skincare, gotta say (I) adore how there are no surprises with JAVA. It’s made with the best quality ingredients and they never use any phtalates, parabens, synthetic fragrance or color in their skincare. It’s also gluten, sulphate, and cruelty free. And it works like a dream. Woot, Woot!

My skin’s also on the sensitive side, so I tend to be cautious about introducing different products into any beauty treatments, whether they involves the skin on my face or on my feet. Happy to report that I had no irritation of any kind. Guys, my feet have never looked or felt better!

When is the last time you gave your body a really good scrubbing?

We recommend using JAVA Body Scrub everywhere from the neck down about twice a week.

Here are a few reasons why:

Instantly makes skin look more youthful and healthy
Helps to unclog pores, remove excess oil and helps prevent ingrown hairs
Helps moisturizers penetrate deeply instead of getting stuck in dead skin         buildup
Makes for a more even application of self tanner
Boost circulation and cell turn-over
Reduces the look of dark spots and other skin imperfections
It feels great!

Never forget this important step to keep your skin healthy and glowing.

What’s in Your Coffee Body Scrub?

JAVA Truly Body Scrub is filled with moisturizing oils including argan, safflower, and sweet almond, to nourish and heal skin. Infused with organic raw coffee, our scrub is packed with antioxidants to protect against free radical damage and help correct skin imperfections.

Rose Latte Anyone?

You’ve probably noticed that all of us here at JAVA Skin Care “LO💖E” coffee (although “love” may not be a strong enough word). What you might not know is that some of our products are directly inspired by our team’s favorite coffee drinks. So, when we tried a Rose Latte for the first time, we knew the aromatic combination of coffee and roses would make a heavenly combination for a lip kit – and the Bloom Lip Duo was born!

And now, we’re dropping some barista knowledge on you and showing you how we make a creamy, caffeinated, floral rose latte:

  • Pulling a perfect shot of Espresso – Layer finely ground fresh coffee into your portafilter and use your tamper to press the grinds down with approximately 30 pounds of pressure to form an even surface. Next, insert your portafilter into the espresso machine and place your cup underneath. When you press the button to brew the shot it should take about 20 to 30 seconds to complete. The brew should start out dark and change into a golden brown foamy liquid called the crema.  
  • Infusing the Roses into Milk – Add about 8oz of the milk of your choice to a frothing pitcher with a tablespoon of organic dried rose petals, then heat and froth the milk to approximately 150 degrees, infusing the flavor of roses into your milk.  
  • Build your Drink – Add your shot of espresso to your mug, then strain the milk on top of the espresso making sure to that steamed rose petals don’t make it past your spoon. Spoon any leftover milk foam on top. Crush a pinch of your organic dried rose petals and then sprinkle them on top of your latte.  
  • Now take a totally Insta-Worthy picture of your creation and enjoy. Then grab yourself a JAVA Bloom Duo so you never have to be far from the exceptional aromas of coffee and roses ever again!

Enjoy!

xoxo
