Black Gold for your Skin - naturally pure!
Schwarzes Gold - ganz selbstverständlich rein!
Truly Natural Beauty
Enjoying a cup of coffee has many benefits. It's therefore not surprising that coffee is also called black gold. But this precious natural product can do much more! We use spent coffee to yield clear coffee oil for our exclusive, natural and effective skin care. It will leave your skin nourished and glowing.
sustainable, conscious and natural.
In this second about 30,000 cups of coffee are drunk worldwide. In Germany alone, more than one million tons of spent coffee result yearly. Waste. Where others see an end point, we intentionally continue the story of this resource. Not only are we recycling it, we are giving it a new, valuable purpose as a skin care product for you, gifted by nature.
mellow NOIR is based on many green thoughts: We produce sustainably and fair in Germany. The spent coffee is collected locally. We use as many plant-based ingredients as possible. All of our products are vegan. Since we deeply care about animals, we avoid animal testing in all regards. We also consider the recyclability of our packaging and use glass and paper.
Every order equals a new beginning: For every order we receive, we donate a tree to Eden Reforestation Projects. A non-profit organisation that helps locals in developing countries to restore native forests. They are vital for humans and animals. Because when intact forests are destroyed, the animals natural habitat as well as the basis of life of the local population are taken. Eden Reforestation Projects employs the poorest of the poor for fair wages, to plant trees at a large scale. Every planted tree is therefore a gift to our environment and society. Because despite all of our efforts, we cannot avoid all emissions during production.
as pure and clean as possible
In an elaborate extraction process we yield our high-quality coffee oil from spent coffee grounds, which is one of the main ingredients of our skin care. In our facial moisturiser it is complemented by hyaluronic acid, tocopherol (vitamin E), niacinamide (vitamin B3), bisabolol (from the bark of the Candeia tree) and panthenol (provitamin B5). A blend of essential oils from lemon, orange and mandarin add the pleasant citrus scent.
The purity of our products is highlighted by the halal certification. Halal is an Arabic word and translates to “permissible“ or “pure“. It is not easy for Muslims to find the right balance between a modern lifestyle and the traditional values of religion. But we would like to make your life a little easier with our cosmetics. Without alcohol and produced under highest hygiene requirements, mellow NOIR is a valuable addition for any women - independent of your belief!
Our Skin Care Concept
Moisture and Protection for Sensitive Skin
Coffee is truly stimulating! Also for your skin. By natural means our coffee oil, the base of our skin care, contains caffeine. Circulation enhancing and skin tightening effects are regularly attributed to caffeine. Since the hydrating effects of our facial moisturiser are crucial, we asked independent dermatologists to test it on female volunteers, with an age of 19 to 62 years. The result makes us proud: A single use leads to a statistically significant increase in skin hydration, exceeding +55%. And even 24 hours after the single application, skin hydration is still statistically significantly elevated. In your espresso coffee oil gives you the tasty crema. On your skin it is providing you with a pleasant, subtle feel of hydration without any shine.
for sensitive skin
Independent dermatologists tested the skin compatibility of our Facial Moisturiser on sensitive skin. Their conclusion: “Excellent.“ We intentionally choose 98 percent ingredients of natural origin for our vegan skin care. Without ethanol, no ingredients of porcine origin, produced and filled under outstanding hygiene standards. Thus we received the halal certificate of Halal Certification Services.
for a clear and glowing complexion
We all desire a clear, healthy and glowing complexion. But only by natural means. In our cosmetics we combine skin care booster gifted by nature: Coffee oil and moisturising hyaluronic acid, caffeine, protective vitamin E, skin barrier strengthening vitamin B3, anti-inflammatory provitamin B5 and calming bisabolol.
a first measure against skin aging
Skin aging always starts too early! With our mellow NOIR skin care we would like to help you slow down premature skin ageing. Our facial moisturiser contains hyaluronic acids of different sizes, the smallest one helps you to rebuild. Additionally niacinamide (vitamin B3) strengthens your skin barrier, while tocopherol (vitamin E) scavenges free radicals.
We collect spent coffee. From it we extract coffee oil in an elaborate process. We complement it with natural essences, to create an absolutely natural skin care product for you. We create recyclable packaging. We donate trees. We don't shy away from any expense or effort for the production of our skin care.
Why? Because we believe in a better future! A future where we don't have to choose between enjoyment or sustainability. Because both are possible at the same time. Because both have to be possible, if we want to stay and enjoy this planet in the long term.
Luxury and consumption are nothing bad as long as neither our environment, nor our fellow humans have to suffer as a result of it. Therefore we ensure sustainable production and sales of high quality, effective and healthy skin care products. We control, that they are ecologically and socially acceptable. Thereby we aim to contribute positively to our society - whose multicultural nature we value and support.
Enjoy! But enjoy consciously! We help you achieving that. We only use high quality, effective, natural and clean formulations for our exclusive skin care. The basic component of our products is coffee oil extracted from spent coffee, in halal quality. It represents our open-minded attitude and assures you of the purity and quality of our cosmetics, free from alcohol, vegan and made in Germany.
Our company is still young! We progress daily and aim to continuously improve our products. We would be very grateful for your support!
