Coffee as food, a new challenge. “CafeDAME”

Coffee is known to have been cultivated in the highlands of Ethiopia since the 9th century, and has been the most popular favorite food in the world for more than a thousand years.

You can find that the skin of an Ethiopian farmer’s hand picking coffee fruit under the intense sun is much better than the face.

According to a paper published in 2007 in Cosmetic Dermatology, coffee’s polyphenol content is about three times stronger than green tea’s polyphenol content.

In 2007, the American Journal of Dermatology (AAD) applied cosmetics made of polyphenols extracted from “Coffee Berry” to prevent wrinkles, skin pigmentation and hot flashes. It was said to have had a good effect on treatment.

Another thing to note with polyphenols is “caffeine”.

Caffeine is a water-soluble ingredient that penetrates the skin barrier relatively well to hydrate and soothe the skin. It calms the redness of the face, has an anti-inflammatory effect, and is also used as a cosmetic ingredient for acne skin.

Coffee, which has been known as a popular favorite food, is rarely used as a cosmetic.

However, it is noteworthy that Ahn Jeung-Youb, CEO of Bio & Ceuti Co., Ltd. of Korea, approached not only cosmetics but also a functional health food product using coffee.

Based on years of experience in various companies and research institutes, she is not just a company that makes cosmetics using coffee but applies it as a functional health food using various active ingredients of coffee. Her constant challenge continues.

Away from the stereotype that “coffee is food,” why don’t you see how popular coffee-based cosmetics are?

We look forward to her new challenges, as well as functional health foods based on coffee from Bio & Ceuti.
