Melscreen Coffee ORG (INCI: Coffea Arabica Seed Oil) is organic coffee oil extracted from Coffea Arabica green coffee beans. In addition to providing protection against UV radiation (increasing SPF by 25%), Melscreen Coffee is used for LYPOLYSIS, SKIN REMODELING and SKIN HYDRATION. Rich in linoleic (omega-6), an essential fatty acid and ditepenic esthers, Melscreen Coffee restores the lipids in the outermost layer of the skin, and increases Aquaporin-3 for intense skin hydration.

Clinical Tests (published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology) show the following effects of green coffee seed oil on extracellular matrix components (ECM) and water channel expression on human skin.

  • 7x increase in Aquaporins-3 expression (Aquaporins-3 are small proteins responsible for the transport water and glycerol across the epidermis)
  • Increases in ECM synthesis: Collagen = 75%, Elastin = 52%, Glycosaminoglycans > 100%
  • Increases in TGF (Tissue Growth Factors) synthesis: GM-CSF = 834%, TGF-Beta = 204%

Melscreen Coffee ORG increases the release of EFA’s (essential fatty acids), presenting a lypolitic (fat-burning) effect demonstrated by the following chart:
