Ingredient Spotlight: Green Tea

What is Green Tea?

Green Tea is made from the lightly oxidized and minimally processed leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, originating in China.


What Makes Green Tea So Special?

Green Tea contains a multitude of beneficial antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals. The stars of Green Tea are its polyphenolic compounds, particularly proanthocyanidins, tannins, and catechins. These powerhouse compounds provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic benefits. They help to promote and maintain collagen and elastin in the skin and increase wound healing. Most importantly they offer protection from UV and environmental damage. Green Tea also contains skin barrier supporting minerals like zinc, magnesium, selenium, and chromium.
