Surprising Uses of Coffee | Benefits of Coffee Soap

Your good old cup of Joe can do more than just wake you up in the morning. Instead of having your coffee after your morning shower, save some time and have it while you’re in the shower with a bar soap containing coffee.

Keep reading for a look at the surprising benefits of coffee and why you should be using it on your skin!

Why You Should Use Coffee on Your Skin

Coffee can- and should- be a part of your morning routine in more than just one way. Sure, it tastes great and wakes you up, but you can uncover so many more benefits when you use it on your skin.

Here are some of the top benefits of using coffee on your skin:

  • It’s a natural exfoliator: using coffee grounds on your skin is a great way to help remove excess skin cells which cause dry, itchy skin. Exfoliating regularly can help keep your skin moisturized and smooth.
  • Improves the look of your skin: The antioxidants found in coffee have tons of benefits for your overall health and your skin. Coffee can promote healthy skin by slowing signs of aging, reducing inflammation and dark spots, increasing collagen production and reducing cellulite.
  • Protects you from skin cancer: In a Rutgers University 2011 study, it was found that using caffeine directly on your skin could help to prevent certain types of skin cancers by blocking damaging UV light.

How to Up Your Shower Game with Coffee

Don’t worry – you don’t have to make a mess in your shower trying to scrub with coffee grounds or waste your time making a DIY scrub.

We made it easy to use coffee on your skin by partnering with Fire Dept. Coffee to craft our newest natural bar soap – the Cold Brew Cleanse bar!

This coffee creation will energize your shower, jump-start your skin, and supercharge your day with a blend of shea butter, salt, kaoilin clay and some top-notch Fire Dept. Coffee medium roast coffee beans.




Jason Patton, the VP at Fire Dept. Coffee suggests using the Cold Brew Cleanse bar “…for a natural spin on your favorite beverage.”
