The ingredients for our Harstad IPA products come from our local brewery, Harstad Bryggeri.

We recycle both the grains and hops used in the brewing process and we also use IPA in it's liquid form when the product requires a smoother consistency. 

The benefits of grains, hops and beer on your skin;

  1. Improves damaged skin cells - Hops contain an abundance of polyphenols. Polyphenols are compounds found in natural plant food sources and have powerful antioxidant properties that help prevent oxidative damage of cells, lipids and DNA.​

  2. Improves eczema and other skin conditions - The hops in beer possess various antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. They also possess anti-oxidative, anti-angiogenic, anti-melanogenic, anti-osteoporotic and anti-carcinogenic effects.

  3. Exfoliates and improves elasticity - As we age skin changes and becomes rougher, loses elastic tissue, thins and becomes more fragile. The compounds present in beer provides a powerful anti-aging cocktail. Research suggests that bathing in bubbly brew may actually help restore a more youthful appearance to aging skin with improved elasticity and exfoliation.

  4. Helps clear blemishes and acne - Beer has potent anti-bacterial properties, which helps clear acne as well as other skin infections.

  5. Hydrates the skin - Due to the yeast and vitamins in beer, beer baths apparently hydrate the skin, suggests the Health Science Journal. It may also help maintain the delicate pH balance of the skin.

  6. Hair conditioner - If you’ve never heard about the benefits of beer for your hair, you may want to give it a try. Beer made from barley and hops is a rich natural source of vitamins and proteins necessary for proper hair growth.

  7. Detoxifying and stimulating the circulatory system - Beer is thought to detoxify the body and stimulate the circulatory system due to the action of its carbonic acid.
