Green Coffee Extract

Home / GLOSSARY / Green Coffee Extract


One of the most potent forms of natural antioxidants comes from green, unroasted, cold-pressed coffee beans. Green coffee’s high levels of polyphenols, chlorogenic acid and ferulic acid actively fight the free radicals with a power more than 10 times stronger than the antioxidant power of the green tea. Chlorogenic acid reduces redness associated with excessive sunlight exposure. Ferulic acid provides antioxidants and sun-protective benefits while enhancing the stability of application of vitamin E. Caffeine limits the photo-damage, decreases skin roughness and wrinkles formation. These antioxidants increase the blood flow, allow the skin to reduce the free radical damage, heal rough tissue, and promote the rapid cell regeneration, thus making green coffee extract a super ingredient to help improve the looks of dull and aging skin. International teams of researchers have discovered that some ingredients extracted from green coffee beans rejuvenate aging skin. Several studies have demonstrated significant improvements in the reduction of wrinkles, increased firmness, and reduced inflammation of facial skin. According to a Brazilian research, green coffee extract has a 1.5-fold increase in elastin production and a 2-fold increase in collagen production compared to the control group. These two proteins are essential for filling wrinkles with collagen produced naturally within the skin matrix and preserving the firmness and the flexibility of facial skin.
