Why Is Green Tea Good For My Skin?

Green tea, from the plant Camellia sinensis, is typically used in skin care because of its high concentration of polyphenols (also known as catechins). The most studied of these polyphenols is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which is known to help prevent and repair free radical damage. Green tea also contains quercetin, an antioxidant that helps to neutralize excess iron in the skin, as well as resveratrol, another super-antioxidant. Finally, green tea also contains caffeine and tannins, which help to decrease puffiness. Yes, green tea can do all that!

What does this mean specifically for your skin? Here are the specific benefits you can look for:
  1. Anti-aging benefits: helping with the prevention and correction of sun damage.
  2. Tightening benefits.
  3. Anti-inflammatory and calming benefits.
  4. Sebum-reducing benefits.
  5. Pigment-reducing benefits.

And green tea has no known side effects on the skin, it is safe to use daily, year-round, and adequate for all skin types including sensitive.

We love green tea (now you know why), and use it in these products: Pigment Perfecting Serum, Sérum jeunesse rétinol, Skin Repair Gel, Firming Gel For Neck And Bust, and Soothing Body Lotion.
