Looking into adding value to Australian sourced and manufactured natural ingredients for the cosmetic market, led to the development of a proprietary process in order to enhance the recovery of active compounds from roasted Arabica coffee beans. In 2011 this process resulted in a natural coffee extract called botanicES® Natural Coffee Extract, which is a superior replacement for the current “coffee oil” sources, used in contemporary cosmetic formulations. Currently manufactured by Southern Cross University, we have partnered up with recognised cosmetic industry professionals to identify a commodity that offers exciting commercial opportunities in the skin care as well as personal wellness markets. Innovation: We have launched our own gentle skin care range with botanicES® Natural Coffee Extract. Please refer to www.botanices.com for more information.
