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.”

Face masks, hand washing and stress may be wreaking havoc on your skin this summer. Beauty expert Stacy Cox joined us live with a skincare solutions for dry hands, acne breakouts, skin irritation and more. For more information on Stacy Cox and the solutions she covered, you can follow her on Instagram @StacyCoxBeauty or see the links below.
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.
We also have our AWESOME Body Serum which is perfect for moisturizing dry hands. The Serum is On Sale too.
Be sure to LIKE and Follow our blog – we will continue to address ways to stay safe, healthy and keep your skin feeling awesome through this trying time.
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
Breast Cancer Action warns of possible link between cancer and cosmetics:
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.
The dog days of summer have arrived, and I am committed to enjoying e-v-e-r-y last minute of it!
This is my dog Driftwood. He is the JAVA Mascot. He even has his own Insta Page – he loves to get follows @driftwoodyyyyyy. He is a Saint Bern-doodle, a combo of a Saint Bernard and a standard Poodle. I must admit, he is the coolest dog because doesn’t shed, doesn’t drool and has the temperament of a Saint. He is pretty big at 85 pounds, but as gentle as can be. He loves to swim and take baths.
Paddle Boarding Anyone?
My new obsession is paddle boarding. At the end of my street is a saltwater river that is perfect to paddle board on. We even do Full Moon Paddles. The next Full Moon is August 15th. These evening events are amazing. If you are into paddle-boarding, I highly recommend a this lunar experience.

garden, and my Peonies are beginning to bloom. I always struggle with wanting
to cut them for a table center piece but coming up the walkway to the front
door and seeing them each day is such a wonderful experience. I tend to leave
them alone; maybe I need to plant more of them so I can enjoy them both ways…
note to self: plant more peonies.

Here is the at-home
version of the Skin Smoothing Spa Protocol used in 5-star spas across the
Before showering, apply JAVA Body Scrub to dry skin in a circular motion, towards the heart, with even pressure to any “affected” areas (any dimply or less than firm spot on your body, legs, bottom, tummy, upper arms, scars and stretch marks). Scrub gently for three to five minutes. The circular massage will redistribute fat evenly, decrease fluid retention and increase circulation.
Next, wrap the area with a towel, and let the mixture soak in for
fifteen minutes. While you wait, relax; flip through your favorite magazine
while the antioxidants and caffeine absorb deep into your skin to detoxify
Shower off to rinse your skin. Partially pat dry – you want your skin
to be slightly damp.
Now, massageJAVA Serum into affected areas (and while you’re at it, go ahead and smooth that serum all over your body). Not only will the serum deliver antioxidants and caffeine deep into your skin’s upper layer, it will create a moisture barrier to continue to keep your skin soft and supple all day.
Use the scrub and wrap protocol three days a week until desired
effect is achieved. After that, continue scrubbing once a week and use the wrap
protocol as needed.
On days that you’re not using the scrub, use Wonderbar Coffee Natural Exfoliating Soap in the shower in a circular massage on effected areas to maintain the fat distribution and deliver caffeine and antioxidants to your skin.

Here is what Katie had to say about the JAVA Skin Care Wonderbar Coffee + Mint Soap.
If you’ve had any sort of skin irritation or sensitivity, you know the importance of using natural products. Anything that we put on our skin is quickly absorbed by our body. Each season has its own skin care challenges, such as winter dryness and summer sun exposure. These natural products and skin care tips can help your whole family live and feel healthier!
COFFEE INFUSED SKIN CARE
I absolutely love coffee, but I would have never thought to put it in my skin care! Coffee grounds are a natural exfoliate and the caffeine from coffee is a natural anti-inflammatory. I have tried several luxurious products from Java Skin Care. As expected, the deep coffee fragrance combined with the beneficial properties of Java provide rich benefits and smells amazing!
I had the chance to try the Java Skin Care Mint + Coffee Exfoliation Wonderbar made with organic ground coffee. I love this natural soap for a few reasons. First, the Wonderbar is made with ground roasted coffee which scrubs away dead skin cells. The potent mix of coffee serum and mint soothes and smooths the skin.
Also, the Wonderbar is generous in size and will last a long time if stored in a dry place.
