What is good about Green Coffee Beans?
Vanuatu Green Coffee Beans

Green coffee beans are beans that have not been roasted but processed cold so that they retain their waxy outer layer. The beans when not exposed to the hot roasting conditions retain a higher percentage of volatile components which include the well known alkaloid theophylline (the one that gives green tea its benefits) and the wrinkle stopping amino acid GABA (gamma-Aminobutyric acid) which would have otherwise been degraded completely. These green coffee beans create a healthy skin and promise to give us better circulation, less wrinkles and a faster skin metabolism.

Green coffee beans also contains a wide range of fatty acids and esters to moisturise and help repair the skin barrier. It includes the skin-friendly Linoleic, oleic and arahidic acids that also act as emollients to modify the skin feel of your formulation. Then there are the antioxidant polyphenols which are again present in much higher levels thanks to the lack of roasting, the key ones being Chlorogenic Acid which has been shown to be up to ten times more potent than green tea at boosting skin health and Ferulic Acid another potent free-radical buster that is being widely adopted by skincare brands.

Botanically the species of green coffee that we are using is Vanuatu's own Tanna Coffee bean from the Coffea arabica (catimore species). They are ground and powdered at the Summit and then added to our new range of facial masks and polishes providing the natural benefits direct from the islands to your skin.
