Frequently asked questions
What is the Fivesso Experience?
Inspired by the organic taste of coffee, Fivesso has created a unique lineup of coffee skincare products by bringing the most effective organic ingredients from nature directly to you. We want you to be natural and feel natural by introducing the Fivesso Experience. We want you to feel the Fivesso experience through the energizing, soothing feeling, and rejuvenating exfoliation on your skin.
Why does Fivesso use coffee in their products?
We decided to use organic coffee because of the many natural benefits that coffee brings to your skin. The natural caffeine found in coffee has many benefits when directly applied to the skin, including helping with combating the effects of cellulite due to the natural exfoliation properties of the coffee grounds. The natural occurring caffeine in coffee helps reduce the cellulite fat cells by increasing the blood flow in the skin. Also, let’s not forget about the vitamins and anti-oxidants that are provided by the coffee grounds in Fivesso’s soaps and body scrubs.
Fivesso uses the highest grade medium roasted coffee that is fair-trade and organic certified to give you the best option for using coffee on your skin. (We also love drinking our high-quality, fair-trade organic coffee every morning!)
How are the organic coffee soap and body scrubs made?
The soap bars and body scrubs are all made with natural ingredients. The organic soap bars are handcrafted in large batches and cured in wooden curing racks to rest for 6 -7 weeks before being certified safe to use. We take proper care making sure that each soap bar reaches our premium standards before putting into the recycled Fivesso boxes so that each soap bar is personally inspected before packaging.
Our coffee body scrubs are made with organic honey and glycerin, along with several of other ingredient ingredients. Each 4 oz container are inspected and sealed to maintain 100% freshness before it arrives directly to you. All of our soaps and body scrubs are made in the USA!

We use sustainable sourced organic palm oil, organic olive oil, and organic coconut oil as our oils in the bars.
How much caffeine is found in each soap bar?

You may use a sponge or loofah, but for best result is when the soap bar is directly apply to the skin.
