Nothing kick starts an early morning more than the smell and taste of that first cup of coffee, the first thing you notice when using the Lqd Body Wash is the ‘Wake me up in the morning’ aroma of coffee.
The brand new addition to the Liquid Skin Care (Lqd) range follows the philosophy used in the rest of the range of being scientifically advanced and non-irritant products.
And with this body wash, the smell and feel are not only spot on but you know that your skin won’t be harassed by any ingredients that affect your skin.
I was lucky enough to try the body wash over a period of weeks and I’ve now become used to the fragrance but also just how good I feel from head to toe when I get out of the shower.
The Lqd Body Wash has gone through three years of stringent testing in the US to prove it is one of the purest products on the market for sensitive skin.
Lqd co-founder and organic chemist Anthony McDonough said body-washes usually contain ingredients such as sulphates and parabens that exacerbate conditions such as rosacea, dermatitis, and eczema while many actually claim to be organic.
“In fact, the most commonly used ‘organically’ certified foaming agent is Cocamidopropyl betaine and this is a known skin irritant,” explains McDonough.
“Perfumes and essential oils are also common irritants, so the task at hand was to create a fragrant, foaming wash, that was also gentle and nourishing.
The Lqd team then discovered the benefits of coffee seed oil (COASETM-Coffea Arabica Seed Extract) which is gathered from the green coffee bean plant using supercritical CO2 extraction.
“With the added benefit that it smells like a freshly brewed café latte!” COASETM acts as a super antioxidant, stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis, and improves moisture retention,” continued McDonough
“Added to that are lashings of rich, soothing ingredients, such as aloe vera, jojoba, rosehip and avocado oils, to ensure skin is left cleansed, refreshed and glowing.
The fresh coffee scent and chic packaging means Lqd Body Wash is right at home in any bathroom, home or workplace.
