The benefits of coffee oil come from its composition of plant sterols and linoleic and oleic acid. Compounds that are sought after by skin care product manufacturers for their naturally occurring fatty acid and Vitamin E compositions, offering moisturizing, skin soothing, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory benefits.
