The story

Coffee, a popular taste all over the world

Coffea arabica, Rubiaceae

Very recently discovered, coffee is a shrub with little short-lived white flowers, born in Ethiopia and in the South tropical Africa, it used to live in the shadow under high trees between 500 and 1600 m. Arabica is the most ancient sort of coffee, it was placed in the XVth century in Arabia, then cultivated by Dutch people in the XVIIth century. Its name comes from arabian « qahwa » or « gahwa ». But the word Moka comes from the harbour located in the North Yemen. Cultivated in monoculture, coffee is first dedicated to be prepared as a universal drink. It contains coffeine, an alcaloid, which is a heart booster. It has also diuretic and analgesic properties. Coffee is a rich plant: grains contain essential oils, glucose, proteins and vitamin PP too.

The story

The peppermint, an hybrid with a concentrated perfume

Mentha x piperita, Lamiaceae

That perennial herbaceous and fragrant plant, has been created from the hybridizing of the aquatic mint (aquatica) and the green mint (spicata) but its geographical origin is still unknown. Growing rapidly, it propagates through stolons. Very used in in the everyday life in the Antiquity for its fragrance, today it is cultivated in several areas in the world especially in the United States of America for its essential oil, that is very rich in menthol (giving its perfume), and extracted from leaves. Many food products like herbal teas, candies, liquors, include peppermint but also pharmaceutical products (against cough, cold, or antiseptical creams, local painkillers, etc.).



Because, like any part of the body, skin is sometimes tired, it is necessary to help it to regain its energy. For a lightener skin, more beautiful, that feels an impression of well being.

How it works ?

Balancing Energy Coffee & Peppermint relaunches cell energy in epidermis by increasing cell energetic production, that is creating through respiration in cell mitochondriae. It contributes to boost chemical reactions (oxidations), that supply ATP, the source of elemental energy for cells, by maintaining the global energetic balance respect (energetical homeostasia), meaning that it keeps a balance between degradation processes (catabolism) and synthesis processes (anabolism). Those processes are inclined to unbalance with ageing. Besides, it minimizes the production of free radicals, that lead many cell desorders in short and long term: they also can limit cell activity

Thanks to those actions, skin cells can get back a level of activity to fill their functions, including those delayed by ageing.
