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.

Healthy Clean for You… And Your Backyard!

d-070714_167

Whether you are a city dweller, live on acres of farmland or have a sprawling backyard in the suburbs, an outdoor shower is certain to appeal to you summertime sensibilities. For sandy feet, muddy dogs, or a  cool spritz on your skin,  a refreshing, eco-friendly shower is perfect on a hot day or under a starlit sky.

But if we are IMG_5772showering in the beautiful outdoors, then we should be as kind to the environment as we are to our bodies, right?

Most store bought body products we use in the shower are filled with harsh chemicals, irritants, artificial ingredients, dyes, colorants, fragrances and non-biodegradable micro-beads. These ingredients  are not only destructive to  beautiful skin but also to the surrounding environment: the soil the water we drink and bathe in. By using eco-friendly bath products (nudge, nudge, JAVA Skin Care), the water from your outdoor shower  isn’t harmful to your gardens, lawns, pets, wildlife, water systems or your skin.

The JAVA Body Bar and JAVA Body Scrub are made from all-natural plant-based ingredients to make your skin happy and smooth.  It is textured with biodegradable exfoliating properties created by the addition of roasted coffee.

Don’t think you’re being fooled by the honey gold color of JAVA Body Wash.. It contains NO harmful dyes and ONLY natural color and fragrances from coffee extracts, argan oil and sweet almond oils. Your skin and your garden will thank you for such wonderful treatment!

Since your already outside, don’t worry about drying yourself off and dirtying another towel, lather on the JAVA Body Serum on your damp skin and let it soak in all the moisture it can get.

Use JAVA Skin Care products to be sure the environment and your skin are JAVA ready for your outdoor shower.
