A shrub cultivated all over the tropical world, the coffee bush produces a fruit that, once ripe, bears the two seeds we call coffee beans. The legend of the coffee bush dates back to the Middle Ages. It is said that a Yemeni shepherd, baffled by the unusual energy of his goats, noticed they were feeding on the beans from a small, mysterious tree. Intrigued, he brewed the beans and discovered a subtly aromatic, energizing beverage known today as coffee.
Green Coffee Bean extract is used in cosmetics for its energizing, detoxifying and antioxidant properties.
DID YOU KNOW?
Green Coffee Bean extract is acquired by sun-drying and lightly roasting the beans. This extremely simple process conserves the active molecules at the root of its energizing, detoxifying and antioxidant properties.
