BREE JOHNSON AND JESS HATZIS - FRANK BODY ($20 MILLION)

From drug of choice to poison, diuretic and skin nemesis, coffee often gets a bad rap.

But for those of us in Australia who drink 2.1 billion cups bought from cafes or vendors each year, while it may pick us up and disrupt our sleep, that first sip of a flat white also gives us the best feeling in the world.

Which is perhaps one of the reasons why, who sell coffee-based skincare from their offices in Melbourne, is such a success story. Simple fact is: people love coffee.

Founders Bree Johnson and Jess Hatzis have turned their love of coffee into a $20 million business:'It's a total myth that coffee is bad for the skin,' Bree Johnson previously told Daily Mail Australia.'In actual fact, how our business came about is that we stumbled on the myriad skin benefits of caffeine.' 'When you use coffee scrub on your body, the hot steam opens the pores, before the granules get into the skin, exfoliating it in a natural way without unhealthy, un-ethical microbeads,' Jess and Bree (pictured) told FEMAIL It helps that their brand is hugely Instagrammable - and many people share their snaps using the scrubs online (pictured)These days, Frank Body sell coffee-based scrubs to hundreds of thousands of women around the world:'Coffee is high in antioxidants, which are good for the skin,' Bree explained of the benefits of coffee. 'Secondly, coffee has the same pH as the skin, and so is useful for evening out the skin's texture and tone. 'Finally, coffee can help to produce collagen, which is obviously beneficial for our faces and bodies.'In less scientific terms, when you use coffee scrub on your body, the hot steam opens the pores, before the granules get into the skin, exfoliating it in a natural way without unhealthy, un-ethical microbeads.' The brand has a huge cult following of celebrities - including Natasha Oakley and Devin Brugman (pictured) The entrepreneurs shared their tips for business success, which include starting small and building up your brand from the ground up:'We started Frank Body with a $10,000 investment,' Bree explained. 'We're always telling people you don't need millions in capital to start. Don't be by what you do have - just get the product out there!'.
