What is Fivesso?
Fivesso products consist of premium coffee soap bars and coffee scrubs made with high quality organic ingredients that rejuvenate and moisturize your skin, while providing an energy boost for your body.
Our coffee soap bars and scrubs contain several organic oils: olive oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, lavender oil, palm oil, cinnamon oil, and mint oil. These oils moisturize your skin, leaving it feeling smooth and protecting it from dryness.
Fivesso soap bars and scrubs also contain organic coffee grounds that provides a natural exfoliant for your skin while you shower. Our products contain no harsh chemicals, no artificial fragrances, no paraben, and no dyes.
We need your help with raising funds to help expand the production of our organic coffee soaps and coffee scrubs.
We would like to expand and increase our production and marketing development. This campaign will help us in purchasing bulk raw materials to keep our costs down and it will help us reduce lead time in production. This will help us bring our natural products faster to you. In addition with your help, we would like to create new jobs (here in the USA) to manufacture and market our unique Fivesso coffee products. Rewards are only available in the USA.
So What Can Organic Coffee Do for You?
Most people think coffee only provides an energy boost. However, it does MUCH more! Coffee has many benefits, from giving you an energy boost to having the ability to smooth your skin.
We are proud to announce that Fivesso products are the first coffee soap bars and scrubs that contain 100% organic caffeine from the organic coffee.
By using Fivesso soap bars and scrubs daily you will experience firmer and smoother skin.
We are proud to announce Fivesso is launching three initial scents of soaps and scrubs. These are Cinnamon, Lavender and Mint Coffee.

Fivesso Soap Bars can be used to help scrub away grease and dirt in the toughest situations.
The organic coffee grounds act as natural exfoliates to scrub dirt, grease, and stains off your skin. The fine coffee grounds in our soap bars act as a great degreaser.
Fivesso soaps and scrubs are "paraben free". Parabens are a type of preservative which has not been fully studied yet, and are part of many chemicals added to common soaps and scrubs to extend shelf life. We are proud to say that all of our Fivesso soaps and scrubs have no added preservatives.
Our Fivesso soaps and scrubs are also "sulfate free". Sulfate free means that our soap and scrubs do not have any sulfate chemicals, such as sodium lauryl sulfate or sodium laureth sulfate (also known as "SLS"). Sulfates are terrible chemicals to add to any soap, body wash, or scrub. Sulfates are known skin irritants, and pollutants of groundwater. They also emit toxic fumes when heated, and have corrosive properties. Our Fivesso soaps have ZERO sulfate compounds and zero forms of SLS.
All of our handmade bars and scrubs are toxin free, paraben free, and biodegradable.
Enjoy the rejuvenating and moisturizing benefits brought by Fivesso coffee soaps and scrubs.
Use Fivesso soap bars and scrubs daily for improving the quality of your skin and for energizing your day!
What Are the Ingredients of Fivesso Soap Bars and Scrubs?

We are not your typical do-it-yourself soaps and scrubs project. Fivesso soap and scrubs use the highest quality organic ingredients. It took us over a year to find the right sources of ingredients with the right combination to optimize the benefits of each oil. Due to the difficulty of making a balanced, premium, and organic soap bar, it was a challenge to find the right concentration of coffee and oils. In addition, developing a true coffee body scrub was a challenge in itself. We developed, tested, and re-tested the soap bars and body scrub until we felt that they were perfect. We focused on enhancing the quality, texture, effectiveness, and the experience of using our products. After months of testing, we are proud to deliver these premium organic products to you.
We want to ensure our customers enjoy the moisturizing, soothing, and energizing properties of our products. This is why we want to present you with the "Fivesso Experience"

Meet the Fivesso Team
Fivesso began as just an idea in early 2009 while we were talking at a local coffee shop. Several years later, we decided to create Fivesso and develop organic coffee soap bars and coffee scrubs. Our goal is to provide the best coffee soaps and scrubs with the highest quality ingredients.
We have been developing Fivesso product lines for over a year. Using all organic ingredients and organic coffee for different soap bars and body scrubs is not easy, so it took us over a year of continuous research, balancing the ingredients, and testing. We know that we now offer the best coffee soap bars and coffee body scrubs we have produced. With your support, we are ready to make these products available to the market.
Meet the Fivesso creators:
Michael Wong, co-creator of Fivesso, has a background in Mechanical Engineering and Business Management. Currently, he is working on Fivesso soap production and order fulfillment. He is also working to enhance Fivesso supply chain management and forecasting inventory (how many soap bars and scrubs to make).

Questions about Fivesso
Q: How are the coffee soap and scrubs made?
The soap bars and soap scrubs are each made by hand. The soap bars are handcrafted in large batches and used in wooden curing racks and cure for six to seven weeks before being certified safe to use. We want our soap bars to be fully cured and ready to be used once we ship it to you. 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.

Risks and challenges
With a great success of this funding campaign, we want to meet all of the expectations of our Fivesso backers. We are confident we can make our deadline of shipping our Fivesso soap bars and scrubs to our backers by Mid- December. Any delays, we will keep our backers posted and address any questions or concerns to our communication open. All of our coffee soaps and scrubs formulas have been in development for over a year and our research & development (R & D) is finally completed.
- Since all of our soaps and scrubs are handmade, we can manufacture our Fivesso products daily. However, the lead time for soap to cure takes roughly 8-10 weeks so we want to make sure we are on top of our production to ensure we are forecasting our inventory accordingly to mitigate any backlogs.
- We have made many contacts in the organic oil and organic essential oils industry so that we have several backups in case we need to switch to other suppliers. We only want the best of the best suppliers.
- Sometime things can get unpredictable. Set backs can happen due to shipping delay, personal life happens, machine breakdown, etc. In order to mitigate, we want to ensure we are building an efficient team and purchasing the highest quality equipment to get our products completed. In addition, We will keep a clear communication with our shipping partners and backers.
- We plan to use the funds raised through our Kickstarter to obtain additional help, expanding marketing development, and ordering more bulk supplies to make our Fivesso products as quickly as possible and to our highest quality standards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
