This peppermint infusion will revive your skin and help pep you up with its energising and revitalising fragrance!

OPTIAT - One Person's Trash Is Another's Treasure
In a world where we are bombarded with negative headlines about climate change, pollution and our overuse of scarce resources, we commit to minimising the impact we humans have on our wider environment.
Committed to changing our current ‘take, make, dispose’ world by promoting a circular economy: keeping things in use as long as possible before restoring them at the end of their lives.
The nature-friendly beauty company
We believe in respecting the world around us by minimising the impact we humans have on our wider environment. We give new life to ingredients that would otherwise be discarded.
Natural, sustainable products
We believe in creating quality, non-toxic beauty products using skin-loving, natural ingredients.
Vegan and Cruelty-Free
We only use the finest plant-based ingredients. We never test on animals
A natural exfoliator
The fine grounds act as a natural (microbead-free!) exfoliator, gently removing the surface layer of skin cells. Your skin will feel soft, smooth and glowing!
The pH levels
Coffee is the same pH as your skin - meaning it won't leave it feeling dry. We add shea butter and almond oil, leaving you feeling luxuriously smooth and moisturised.
The caffeine levels
The caffeine in coffee helps stimulate blood flow, effective against skin conditions such as acne, eczema, cellulite and stretch marks, addressing those areas in need of renewal and regeneration.
High in antioxidants
The antioxidant level in brewed coffee grounds is higher than in freshly ground coffee! That means they are better at fighting free radicals, one of the main causes of the signs of ageing.
