Our Story

BEAN BODY® believes in the natural benefits of the humble coffee bean and so began our story with our first signature body product – the Coffee Bean Scrub.

At BEAN BODY we believe in creating products with natural and organic ingredients – the coffee bean has been at the heart of the brand since its inception.

WHAT’S IN A BEAN?

At BEAN BODY we have created products that have taken the naturally derived attributes of three very different beans to enhance not only the product experience but also the product benefits that you have from using our products.

THE HUMBLE COFFEE BEAN

COFFEE cultivation can trace its history back to the 15th century where it was being cultivated and traded on the Arabian Peninsula.  COFFEE comes from the seeds of a small tree and is considered a fruit. The plant is a tree with evergreen leaves and a main stem that can grow up to 10 metres tall in the wild. The oil extracted from unroasted COFFEE BEANS is what is then harnessed in the curation of our BEAN BODY products.

 

An antioxidant-rich exfoliant Coffee Bean Extract helps to protect against oxidative damage to the skin cells, it is known to stimulate blood flow and tightens sluggish skin. Coffee is also rich in phytosterols and essential fatty acids, which combat inflammation and work to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Whilst most enjoy coffee as their morning beverage of choice, our signature ingredient also has incredible skin benefits when applied topically. That is why we’ve infused the entire range with fair-trade and freshly-ground Arabica coffee.

 

THE COCOA BEAN

The Cocoa Bean is rich in antioxidants that helps slows down the ageing process by creating a protective shield on the skin to reduce the effects of free radical damage. Cocoa Extract nourishes and smooths. High in magnesium, zinc, iron, calcium, beta-carotene and omega 6 fatty acids, these elements can help to protect the skin against environmental stresses and produce a healthy skin glow.

THE VANILLA BEAN

Vanillin, which is found in the Vanilla Bean, is a compound made up of vitamins, minerals and oils. The Vanilla Bean contains specific antioxidants vital in anti-ageing skin benefits and is rich in vitamin B3 and other vitamin B complexes, and has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help soothe and calm skin.

 

OUR INGREDIENT PHILOSOPHY

At BEAN BODY, we believe in creating products with natural and organic ingredients that are cruelty-free, vegan-friendly and formulated without parabens, nasty chemicals and toxins. Whilst BEAN BODY Scrubs are tough enough to exfoliate your skin, our blends contain soothing and nourishing organic and naturally derived ingredients to rejuvenate the skin – leaving it softer and smoother than ever.
