Mocha Java Sugar Scrub
A scrumptious blend of organic Coffee and organic Dark Chocolate that smells amazing and promotes healthy, glowing skin that is soft, smooth, and moisturized.
Our whipped coffee scrub is a nourishing mixture of butters and oils and the perfect amount of coffee grounds and chocolate to smooth away dead, dry skin and reveal new healthy skin.
Coffee and dark chocolate are loaded with natural antioxidants which are oil-soluble and beneficial to the skin.
They also contain a lot of caffeine. Although research is limited as to how much caffeine is actually transferred into an infused oil, anecdotal accounts claim that coffee-infused oil offers good toning, firming, and cellulite-fighting properties when applied topically. The topical application of caffeine helps remove excess water from the tissues which firms and tones the skin.
Sugar scrubs exfoliate in two ways: the physical "scrubbiness" of the sugar plus the chemical composition of the sugar's AHAs (Alpha hydroxy acids). AHAs loosen the glue-like substances that hold surface skin cells to each other, allowing the dead cells to slough off more easily.
I have actually used the Mocha Java to help temporarily decrease puffiness from under my eyes. I do NOT use it as a scrub in that delicate area, I just gently dot a tiny bit of scrub on the puffy area (like applying eye cream), allow it to sit for a few minutes, and then gently rinse (no rubbing!)
Our Cocoa & Espresso Clay Mask can be used in the same manner to help with undereye puffiness.
All of our sugars are organic, fair trade, and vegan (bone-char free).
How to Use
- Place a bit of scrub in wet hands and rub together.
- Massage on wet skin.
- Pay special attention to dry, rough patches.
- After rinsing, the skin may feel tacky due to the honey!
- Pat dry, wait a moment and you will feel soft smooth, silky skin!
Please note: This scrub may leave a sprinkling of coffee grounds in your shower.
This is a preservative FREE product. Do not get water in the container. Please use a small spoon or craft stick to remove the sorbet from the jar.

Trying to choose the right natural soaps or skincare products can be a bit overwhelming especially when you have allergies and/or skin sensitivities.
Since we proudly list every ingredient in all of our products, reading the ingredient list will help to eliminate ingredients that may cause you problems.
We always recommend doing a patch test before using any new products especially if you have sensitive skin or allergies.
We receive so many emails asking for help with allergies, we created categories in our “Help Me Choose” section to provide information for those with allergies or sensitivities to nuts, coconut, shea butter and gluten.
We do not use synthetic stabilizers or waxes, so our delicate natural products packaged in glass jars and metal tins are sensitive to temperature changes.
While shipping during warm weather seasons presents a real challenge to our natural skin care company, we accept the challenge in order to maintain our standard of natural and nourishing skin care. We hope you agree.
During warm weather, products may soften or even melt as they sit in warm mail trucks, mailboxes, or on front porches.
The quality and healing properties of our products are not affected by melting.
On sunny or warm days, BEFORE opening the jars or tins, place the items in your refrigerator for a few hours to allow them to harden, just in case they have melted in transit. If you open items, especially those in tins, to check if melting has occurred, they may spill and make a mess!
What To Do About Melting
Cream Deodorants: If you think that your balm-like deodorant is melted or runny, BEFORE opening the jar, pop it in the freezer for 10 - 15 minutes. As it begins to harden give it a stir (so that the solids do not sink to the bottom) and place it back in the freezer until firm!
Sometimes a cream deodorant can melt during warm transit and then slowly resolidify before you receive it. This melting and slow cooling can result in a grainy feeling. If your deodorant feels grainy, simply melt it, mix thoroughly, and place it in the refrigerator until solid.
Since the stick deodorant are made with more beeswax, they are less sensitive to an increase in outside temperature
Whipped Body Butters: Place a melted body butter in the refrigerator until firm.
Our hand-whipped process adds tiny air bubbles that increase the volume, just like whipping cream. If a whipped product melts, the air bubbles collapse and the volume is decreased.
So, although the jar was filled to the top initially, there will be less volume in the container (since it has deflated) and the container may actually look half full.
After cooling a melted Whipped Butter will be the consistency of our body balm and is still a great moisturizer.
If a Sugar Scrub melts, the oil may separate out a bit. Give it a good mix and place it in the refrigerator for about 10 to 15 minutes. As it begins to harden up give it another stir to disperse the sugars and place it back in the refrigerator. Once it's solidified and mixed it will be great to use! Again because it is a whipped product, the container may have less volume when the whipped butters melt.
