Natural Oils

The organic fixed oils are all virgin oils with no additives or preservatives. The seeds are cold pressed, sedimented and filtered. The Cold Pressing produces a high quality oil, preserving the oil’s flavour and nutritional quality as no heat or chemical solvents are used in the process. All processing and packaging is conducted at Kahangi Estate and inspections of the high quality products have been made by the Uganda National Bureau of Standards and the Natural Chemotherapeutic Research Laboratory (Ministry of Health).

Coffee Oil cold pressed from organic Arabica beans

Available in 60ml, 160ml and 1 litre containers

COFFEE OIL
Coffee oil contains fatty acids like linoleic and palmitic acids which has proven to increase the production of collagen and elastin, proteins that are important for smoothing wrinkles and preserving the firmness and flexibility of the facial skin. The oil also directly combats UV damage to improve the strength, resilience and elasticity of the facial skin.

Skin cells treated with coffee oil have the ability to halt moisture loss and improve skin hydration. The proteins in the oil act as a sponge to trap water molecules then transport them to the upper layer of the skin. It  also has the ability to protect against photo ageing through increased apoptosis (programmed cell death) of UVB damaged keratinocytes which remove damaged skin cells before they cause photo aging and skin cancer.

Coffee oil contains a high concentration of chlorgenic acid which reduces redness associated with excessive sunlight exposure and the caffeine limits photo damage , decreases skin roughness and wrinkle formation and reduces the appearance of crow’s feet
