Our Story

It all began with an exquisite cup of artisan roasted coffee at her café in North Kingstown, RI. It was here that JAVA Skin Care founder Stephanie Additon conceived the unlikely intersection of coffee and beauty: A new cup of java to be savored — this time, by the skin. Stephanie was inspired by the science that underscores coffee’s topical benefits, and saw the potential early on of wedding coffee with skincare.
JAVA Coffee Infused Skin Care products marry the rejuvenating properties of green coffee - one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants, with a unique blend of organic oils (like argan, pumpkin, and rosemary) that are proven to nourish, repair and protect the skin. This inspired union between coffee and organic oils produces JAVA’s remarkable skincare formula, which is unlike anything else on the market.

 

 

A Letter from our Founder:

 

I am thrilled to introduce you to JAVA Coffee Infused Skin Care. Our vision for JAVA Skin Care is a luxury eco brand built on the rejuvenating proprieties of coffee. Every single JAVA Skin Care product has been formulated for perfection, with you in mind. JAVA Skin Care's organic ingredients are globally sourced, and are of the highest grade and quality available. When we say there’s no other skincare line on the market like JAVA, we mean it.

For example, the organic green coffee extract that gives you the JAVA EFFECT, is from a Smithsonian Certified farm in Guatemala. We know coffee (it’s our passion), and have carefully chosen this farm to supply us with coffee. Once the beans are sourced they come to our coffee roasting company in Wickford, RI to be artisanally roasted and stone milled. This guarantees that our coffee will provide maximum antioxidant and caffeine content to AWAKEN YOUR NATURAL BEAUTY.

Our passion for quality extends to the entire supply chain, too. We have chosen each cap, bottle, label, packaging and brochure lovingly to create a environmentally friendly brand we can all be proud of. It has always been important to me that each component has ties to Rhode Island. We want to do our part to support local business and work together.

It has been an amazing journey to get to this point. Every good idea encounters challenges, celebrations and a myriad of choices, but it’s the team behind the idea that can truly propel it into fruition. There are so many people who have helped me realize JAVA Skin Care's successes, and I am grateful for each and every one of them. My family, friends, staff, volunteers, customers at Updike’s Newtowne - our coffee roasting company - mentors, advisory board members and our production people have inspired these products.

Our team strives every day to have fun, encourage each other and work really hard to offer you great products. Welcome to JAVA Skin Care.

Enjoy!
Stephanie Additon, CEO
