java skinHollywood’s Red Carpet events have been getting a touch of Our Backyard creativity lately. JAVA Skin Care products were among the goodies in the swag bags given to presenters and award-winners at the 2015 Grammys and MTV Movie Awards.

“We had so much fun seeing the stars on the Red Carpet. It was so cool to imagine that they were glowing because they had tried our stuff,” says founder Stephanie Additon.

Lots of entrepreneurs hone their ideas in coffee shops, but JAVA got its start behind the counter of the family-owned Updikes Newtowne Coffee Roasting Company in North Kingstown. Now the company is working with national retailers like Benrus and exclusive spas like the Eau Palm Beach Resort.

The signature ingredient in all of JAVA’s skin care products is Green Coffee. Cold-pressed green coffee bean extract is a potent antioxidant. It can reduce the visibility of scar tissue, acne, and wrinkles by making skin more elastic.

Another key ingredient is Artisan Roasted Coffee – roasted right in their own little coffee shop. The caffeine in the roasted coffee beans is known to make skin look healthy and vibrant. And there is Organic Argan Oil to penetrate the skin, Sweet Almond Oil for wrinkles, acne, stretch-marks, and cellulite; and Safflower Oil to lock in the moisture without clogging pores.

“We want your skin to look and feel glorious in a pure, healthy all-natural way. That is why we incorporate five key all-natural ingredients to awaken your natural beauty in a kind, java-loving way,” says Additon.
