Our JAVA Lifestyle Store

Our coffee shop was getting too crammed with crazy JAVA ladies and merchandise so, we packed up our JAVA products did the typical Rhode Island shuffle and moved down the street to create our first brick-and-mortar store on 14 Main Street, Wickford, RI.

Indie Beauty Expo – New York City

Indie-Beauty-Expo-275x275

What could be better then a day in NYC completely devoted to Independent beauty brands and the lovers of beauty products?
JAVA Skin Care being asked to be a part of it of course.

The Indie Beauty Expo took place at the Altman Building in New York City on August 27th. This event was created to give independent beauty brands the opportunity to interact and make connections with buyers, media and consumers that love green beauty products just as much as they do. These unique small brand companies come from all over the nation to present their clean beauty products at this event. Yes, clean beauty. No chemicals, no animal testing, no toxins and completely stock full of lovely, eco-friendly ingredients to help your skin glow.

Although the JAVA team was completely exhausted the following day of the Indie Beauty Expo, they had to go to their favorite spot Trattoria Dell’Arte. When in Rome right?
