Organic green coffee oil
a real vegetable treasure
At the base of the whole Le Caracoli range is the coffee plant, a true plant treasure. Coffee, known and appreciated by millions of consumers all over the world, is also a source of valuable substances with recognized efficacy, used in cosmetics for a long time.
The green coffee oil used in Le Caracoli is obtained by cold pressing of green coffee seeds cultivated by sustainable and certified organic methods to attain and retain the maximum of its beneficial properties.
For its products Le Caracoli uses only certified organic coffee and green coffee oil.
very rich source of antioxidants
In addition to caffeine, whose use in cosmetics is well known, coffee is also a very rich source of antioxidants beneficial to health such as polyphenols and melanoidins. According to recent studies, the amount of antioxidants is much higher in coffee than in other popular drinks such as wine, green tea or fruit juice..
Antioxidants are substances that counteract the harmful activity of molecules known as free radicals. Free radicals are very reactive and can cause serious disorders to cells. Experimental data indicate a causative role of radicals in ageing processes including damages that may lead to neurodegenerative, cardiovascular or cancer diseases.
Antioxidants not only protect the formula of the product from oxidation, and in particular the rancidity of fatty substances of vegetable origin, but also help the skin to fight against free radicals, factors of premature cutaneous ageing. Studies have demonstrated the undeniable role of antioxidants in coffee - as active agents in anti-ageing, slimming and anti-cellulite products.
