Eco chic: Coffee body bar gives a boost to mornings

By Bree Coven Brown / Special to Sunday Market

coffeebar_1201_300Perk up your shower with Rex Apothecary’s Exfoliating Coffee Body Bar, made in Portland with organic fair-trade coffee grounds and unrefined organic sugar to naturally exfoliate dry skin.

The caffeine is said to reduce inflammation and even smooth cellulite. Raw organic shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil and vitamin E from non-GMO soy soften skin and replenish moisture. Each 3-ounce bar contains only seven ingredients — all of which are sustainable, biodegradable, vegan and food-grade — and is shipped in recycled packaging.

Makes a very Northwest stocking stuffer for your favorite coffee connoisseur.

$12–$16 at etsy.com/shop/RexOrganics and Andaluz (Columbia City)
