Description: Coffea arabica is the earliest cultivated species of the coffee tree and is still the most widely grown. All fine specialty coffees come from Coffea arabica, which produces approximately 70% of the world's coffee and is dramatically superior in quality to the other principal commercial coffee species. All the coffee now grown in the Americas originated from one tree in a Dutch botanical garden. Among other possibilities, it is thought that the name 'coffee' comes from Caffa, an Abyssinian province. The Green Coffee Oil is extracted using the cold press method, and it requires more coffee beans to produce the oil than the Roasted Coffee Oil. And since, this oil is produced from unroasted green coffee beans and has not undergone extreme heat, it has higher amounts of nutrients, fatty acids, and vitamins than Roasted Coffee Oil. Green Coffee Oil is known to be loaded with flavonoids and antioxidants and can be added to skin care products. It is naturally higher in caffeine and can be burned like incense to deodorize and energize the atmosphere.
Color: A yellow to dark green liquid.
Aromatic Description: A middle note of medium strength, Green Coffee Oil has a green and slightly herbal aroma.
Common Uses: Green Coffee Oil can be used in place of a carrier oil on its own or in personal care formulations. It is ideal as an aromatic addition to body scrubs, lotions, lip balms, bath products, hair care formulations, and even high-end perfumes. Due to its rich moisturizing properties, Coffee Oil can also be used as a base for massage oils.
Consistency: Light to medium viscosity, characteristic of carrier oils.
Absorption: Readily absorbed by the skin leaving no oily residue.
Important Note: Coffee Oil – Green may appear to be cloudy. Potential cloudiness is caused by the oil's natural wax content. If this is a concern, prior to use, place the product inside a bowl of hot water (while it is still in its original container) and allow it to remain in this bath until it attains the ideal degree of clarity.
Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of up to 2 years with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis for the current Best Before Date.
Cautions: None known.
Storage: It is recommended that cold-pressed carrier oils be kept in a cool, dark place to maintain freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.
