Deep comfort with upcycled coffee silverskin
SLVR'Coffee™ is based on upcycled coffee silverskin to moisturize and comfort dry skin. The silverskin is a thin protective layer of the coffee cherry that envelops the delicate seed and falls off the bean during the roasting process. SLVR'Coffee™ protects the epidermis from internal and external stressors as well as transepidermal water loss, resulting in improved skin hydration. Therefore, SLVR'Coffee™ enhances the overall comfort level of delicate skin.

The coffee plant (Coffea arabica) is a shrub native to tropical and southern Africa and tropical Asia. The fruits of the coffee plant are red, cherry-like drupes (coffee cherries) and consist of several layers. Surrounded by pulp, the core contains two seeds, called “coffee beans”. The silverskin is the innermost layer of the coffee cherry, surrounding the beans. It is a very thin, silver-shining shell and protects the coffee beans. During the roasting process, the beans expand and the silverskin falls off, so silverskin flakes are a by-product of the coffee roasting process.
