We were all having a bad hair day – mother, daughter, and niece. While commiserating over our unanimous beverage of choice, coffee, we realized that how our hair looks on any given day impacts how we feel. After countless trips to cosmetics counters, specialty stores and drug stores, we continued to find ourselves unable to purchase a shampoo which would give our hair volume, shine and bounce.
necessity is the mother of invention
As three businesswomen with more than 50 years of combined experience in engineering, business development and consulting, we decided to take a purely business-like approach to a very personal issue.
From this endeavor barista bath and body sprang to life – a line of natural beauty products that are safe, effective and designed to complement the body’s natural capacities.
We researched hair – its basic chemistry and the factors that impact the health and appearance of hair – and defined a list of beneficial ingredients. One of the ingredients that met all our criteria was coffee.
Equipped with a list of attributes, performance criteria and preferred ingredients, we met with chemists, estheticians, and cosmetic laboratories to help us develop our product line. We tested countless formulations before we found the shampoo we all adored.
Instead of relying on harsh chemicals that strip your hair and skin of its inherent beauty, barista bath and body products contain brewed coffee, ground coffee, coffee seed oil, essential oils and natural ingredients that support the body’s ability to rejuvenate. Our formulations are free of parabens, phthalates and sulfates that disrupt the body’s natural capacities.
We believe in our products – we formulated them to make a difference. Great thought has also gone into our production footprint. We care about the world now and in the future – our products are manufactured in the U.S., all of our bottles are recyclable, our bags and boxes are made of natural materials, and our fill is bio-degradable.
Our “coffee in the raw” products – designed for both women and men – are performance-driven to bring the delight and bliss of coffee to the bath.
