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

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.

The Skin – our largest sexual organ

Reposted from Masquemusculos – May 22, 2020

When we think of pleasures, we immediately think of: sex, consequently this brings with it genital excitement, erection, vaginal lubrication, orgasm. Some will also think of wines, chocolates, delicious foods, perhaps moments alone; however, one of the most pleasant parts in intimacy, shared or alone is the experience of touching and being touched everywhere.
The simple fact of caressing ourselves, of pampering ourselves, of feeling ourselves, of feeling another person or feeling that another person touches us.

Allow our skin to speak; its texture, its smell, how soft or rough it can be in some places, how cold or warm it is, its sensitivity to certain diseases or how it bristles when touched, kissed, scratched, bitten and so many other ways of expressing ourselves. Our skin is our presentation card, our first dish, our bait.

I have always been a lover of body serum, oils and butters. I think they are sexy and stimulate my femininity, that feeling they leave on my skin makes me feel sexy and I love feeling that way.
Giving myself those minutes to rub my skin with an oil after a shower or as a preamble to my sexual encounter… even if it is only with myself, is one of my favorite pleasures.
I wish you would experience it and let me know what you think, create that sexy connection with yourself before…

One of the serums I have tried recently and which surprised me a lot, because its aroma is quite neutral, but the hydration and the velvety feeling on my skin has no way I can describe it in words; you must try it for yourself, and you can easily find it here:  https://medamour.com/discount/Masquemusculos 

It is the Sexy Serum by Java Skin Care. Not only is it made with wonderful ingredients, but it is also vegan, for all skin types, free of parabens, sulfates and gluten. within its ingredients we find organic coffee, rosemary and vitamin – it really is great.

Dry Hands from all the Hand Washing?

JAVA Skin Care is here to help.

With the emphasis that has been placed on hand washing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we would like to provide some important points on the dos and don’ts of caring for our skin.

“Hand washes with antibacterial ingredients as well as alcohol-based hand sanitizers can be especially harsh and drying on your skin,” Shari Marchbein M.D., dermatologist and clinical assistant professor of dermatology at NYU School of Medicine, told Self Magazine.

Plus, you don’t really need to use those types of soaps to get rid of germs—the friction created by the mechanical act of washing of your hands as well as the surfactant cleaning ingredients in the soaps is what actually removes the microbes from your hands.

Although our understanding of how the new coronavirus spreads and how to protect ourselves from it is still developing, regularly washing your hands with soap and water (especially before touching your face and before/after eating) is one of a few tried-and-true public health strategies the CDC is recommending right now to prevent the spread of this particular virus.

So, yes, that does mean that actually washing your hands correctly—for at least 20 seconds—is absolutely necessary.

Our JAVA Body Wash is great for everyday use. It is aloe based with green coffee and argan oil. It offers a gentle but thorough Clean and is also Moisturizing. We have it On Sale now on our website, so you can have one at each sink in your home or business.

Hand washing with water and soap cleans and protects from virus germs and bacteria

We also have our AWESOME Body Serum which is perfect for moisturizing dry hands. The Serum is On Sale too.

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.

Steph Says ~ Back to School

Summer in Rhode Island lasts through the end of September with warm temperatures.  It really is one of my favorite times of the year… I know, I say that each season… lol.

CSA – Coastal Growers Market

I love going to Farmers’ Markets and picking up local vegetables. The Casey Farm (Saunderstown, RI) Market is one of our best markets and is located on a historic working farm. Truly a lovely location.

Fresh Eggs are a special treat  We get ours from the Future Farmers of America, Narragansett High School Program… Do you know about FFA? It is a dynamic youth organization that changes lives and prepares members for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. FFA develops members’ potential and helps them discover their talent through hands-on experiences, which give them the tools to achieve real-world success.

With my children back in school and breakfast such an important meal to fuel up for their day, I use the veggies from the market and the eggs from FFA to make my “famous” frittata… well, maybe not so famous… but so good!

I use an awesome recipe from Ina Garten aka Barefoot Contessa, which you can see here: Roasted Garden Frittata

Speaking of favorites, our Demitasse Lip Duo is a favorite of mine and of JAVA Skin Care customers based on being one of our top sellers.  Repair and rejuvenate your lips from the summer and get ready for the fall.

Steph Says- Beat the Heat

July is awesome in Rhode Island. The weather, the beach and all the events we have keep our days filled with fun. Some on my favorites are: 

The Bristol Parade

We pack our chairs, make a picnic and enjoy the day. 

Fireworks 
We will be at the beach for the Fireworks on July 4th.  Such a fun family day… 

Clam cakes and Chowder 
Monahans Dock, Narragansett RI 

Hands down our favorite place to get the perfect lunch… and the view is spectacular.
