We all love our morning coffee fix. But Jamie Cleaver took it one step further. While tipping out a batch of used coffee grinds, this local mum-of-two thought sure there would be something useful she could do with them.
Hello Blür Beauty. A new range of scrubs, serums and oils for the face and body, with the coffee being the primary ingredient. All sorts of boxes ticked. The caffeine in the products acts as a powerful and safe stimulant to the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite, fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation. The coffee grinds are from Truth Coffee in Cape Town … the recycled coffee grinds are obtained after making customers’ morning Cappuccinos or Americanos.
The products are vegan, sustainably sourced, organic, cruelty free, paraben free, with eco-friendly packaging, and are proudly South African. You can buy them online, with prices ranging from R249 to R349 (so the affordability box ticked, too).

FROM BEAN TO BODY
For most people coffee is what you drink, but for Jamie Cleaver – founder of the new Blür Beauty range, now available in South Africa – it is how it feels. Used as the primary ingredient in the Blür Beauty range of coffee scrubs, serums and oils, the caffeine from recycled coffee grinds acts as a powerful and safe stimulant to the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite, fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation. Acquired from among the world’s best coffee shops, Truth Coffee in Cape Town, the recycled coffee grinds – obtained after making customers’ morning Cappuccinos or Americanos – is given a second life, becoming the active compound in Blür Beauty’s innovative, new product line.
