Coffee has a stimulating richness recognized for centuries as a natural curative. Barista Bath and Body leverages the revitalizing benefits of coffee by making organic coffee a primary ingredient in its flagship products. Studies have documented the benefits of the topical application of coffee and caffeine, says company CEO Christine Willett. Barista Bath and Body products are formulated with organic coffee, coffee extract, and essential oils to maximize the revitalizing benefits of coffee.

According to Willett, coffee — along with its major ingredient, caffeine — has the following advantages.

> It features a pH balance similar to the human body, meaning that it cleans better than ordinary soap or shampoo.
> It acts as a gentle exfoliant.
> It performs as an effective astringent.
> It promotes the appearance of smoother-looking skin, especially in cellulite-prone areas.

Paraben-free, sulfate-free, and phthalate-free, the line includes body cream, body scrub, soap, mist, gel, shampoo, conditioner, and lip balm.
