WAKE UP WITH CAMPOS IN THE SHOWER THIS SUMMER

COFFEE lovers are enjoying a caffeine boost that cleanses and moisturizes from head to toe, with a deliciously fragrant beautifying body exfoliant hitting the shelves at Campos’ cafes in Brisbane for summer.

The experts at Campos Coffee have shared their knowledge of the humble bean with a Queensland soap producer to develop a unique range of exfoliant soaps that contain ground coffee and other oils that benefit your skin.

Exclusive to Campos Queensland, these exfoliant bars feature Campos’ famous ‘Organic Blend’ coffee, as well as coconut oil, rice bran oil and virgin olive oil, which provide high levels of moisture, as well as anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.

Campos’ director in Queensland, Eugene Phua, said the brand was approached by a small family business in Toowoomba, called Verity Soaps to create two soaps – a coffee exfoliation bar and a white coconut bar.

“Caffeine has been known to stimulate blood-flow and circulation, as well as reduce dry skin and fighting against skin cancer, eczema and psoriasis,” said Eugene.

“We were delighted when they contacted us to use our signature blend in their soaps, and thought it was a great opportunity to provide our customers with an innovative coffee experience they can enjoy at home.

“So far, the response to our soaps has been really positive – people are taking more notice of what they put onto their skin and there is plenty of research to support natural, organic ingredients.”

Packs of two soaps are available at both Campos cafes in Brisbane and retail for $8.50.
