gabi+skin Introduces New Skincare Concept with Taiwan’s First Natural Coffee Scrub, and Daily Skincare Family

A New Beauty Concept Comes to Taiwan

gabi+skin is now bringing this new and popular beauty concept from the West to Taiwan, launching the country’s first locally produced coffee scrub. It’s an original formulation that infuses a few simple ingredients, including coffee grounds, orange essential oils, and brown sugar, resulting in impressive skincare benefits. The coffee scrub is now available at at NT$780 for a 150g jar.

How gabi+skin Started

gabi+skin was started by Mandy Wu, a busy advertising executive who created a coffee scrub to treat her own sensitive skin after regularly breaking out in skin rashes. Her original coffee scrub formulation worked so well that friends and family started asking for jars of the scrub. When they saw similarly impressive effects after just a single use, Mandy created gabi+skin to make the first locally developed coffee scrub in Taiwan available to more women looking for natural and effective skincare. She asked her husband, who owns Level Interactive, a branding consultancy, to help with logos and design. Mandy runs the company now, having discovered a new passion for the freedom and challenges that come from being an entrepreneur and building a skincare brand. She hopes to inspire more would-be female entrepreneurs to pursue their dreams. 

How Coffee Benefits Our Skin

Coffee is grown in a process similar to that of berries, and thus contains the same antioxidants that are highly beneficial to us. Antioxidants are compounds that inhibit oxidation, a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals, leading to chain reactions that may damage skin cells. Antioxidants in gabi+skin’s coffee scrub have been known to help terminate these skin-damaging chain reactions, and through regular use, customers can improve their skin in a variety of ways. 

  • Minimizes the visible effects of aging
    Naturally occurring antioxidants in coffee can help to slow down the aging process caused by DNA damage. Coffee contains the same antioxidant properties as berries, tea, chocolate, and wine. 
  • Reduces the appearance of cellulite
    As a topical agent, coffee scrub helps reduce the appearance of cellulite. The naturally stimulating effect of caffeine helps increase blood flow and circulation, in turn, helping break down fat cells blending them in with the surrounding skin and creating an even texture.
  • Removes dead skin
    The exfoliating and moisturizing properties of coffee grounds combined with essential oils help eliminate dead skin and reveal a healthy, youthful glow.
  • Helps reduce dark under-the-eye bags
    The same blood circulation properties that work against the effects of cellulite in the coffee scrub help reduce under-the-eye bags with regular use.
  • Rejuvenates appearance
    Regular use several times a week can lead to a generally rejuvenated appearance and beautiful, vibrant skin.

About gabi+skin

gabi+skin gets its name from the word for coffee in Taiwanese language; “gabi”. The products originally centered around coffee scrubs and are created in Taiwan, so the name both embodies where the products are made and also honors the original coffee scrub. Since the establishment of the brand, gabi+skin has been carefully researching, developing, and revising our formulas. Products give better results by using natural ingredients, as it’s believed this has a healing effect on the skin. By creating natural products with fewer ingredients, gabi+skin focuses on a skin-first approach to beauty and our skin’s health.
