THE BODYCOFFEE™ EXPERIENCE:
Introducing two new ways to awaken your senses
For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – NOVEMBER, 2003
BODYCOFFEE™ rounds out their line of coffee-based spa treatments with a strategic venture into the growing home/body fragrance sector. Their new Illuminating Coffee Candle has an organic soy base and fresh-brewed coffee scent. The Revitalizing Herbal Mist is an air and body freshener with the uplifting aroma of Moroccan rosemary, orange and mint. Both products contain the company’s namesake secret ingredient: coffee extract.
“Coffee extract neutralizes and absorbs strong odors,” explains company co-founder Stephanie Profitt. “We created our mist and candle to maximize the effect of this surprising benefit.” Coffee extract is also an astringent, antioxidant and natural UV blocker.
In keeping with the character of existing BODYCOFFEE™ treatments, each new product is paired with a historical anecdote. The Illuminating Coffee Candle was inspired by the story of a Sufi sheik who overcame obstacles in his path to enlightenment by consuming an early version of brewed coffee. The spiritual stimulant helped “awaken his senses and enlighten his whole life.” Biodegradable and 100% vegan, the Illuminating Coffee Candle lights up your life and eases your conscience at the same time.
The Revitalizing Herbal Mist takes us to 18th century Arabia Felix, where the King’s Gardens prized the wild coffee shrub, an evergreen, for “breathing new life into the air.” Like the green leaves of the coffee plant, the Revitalizing Herbal Mist offers a sensation of pure refreshment. With an aromatic blend of essential oil, the Mist can be used as a hair, body or room freshener.
The BODYCOFFEE™ portfolio also includes: Invigorating Body Polish, Hydrating Body Balm, Energizing Body Bar, Moisturizing Body Lotion with Coffee Blossom Essence™ and Cleansing Body Wash with Coffee Blossom Essence™. JAVABALM SPF 15 Lip Balm comes in 3 flavors, VanillaMint, CoffeeMint and CoffeeMocha.
The origins of BODYCOFFEE™ stem from a timeless Russian tradition. In the banya or bathouse, resourceful bathers massage coffee grounds onto damp skin before going in the sauna. The combination of mild exfoliation and rich natural oils preps the skin for the detoxifying effects of the cleansing ritual.
