Green Tea is both ancient and powerful. Harness this legendary brew for its protective, anti-aging effects on the skin…
Originating in China, Green Tea is believed to affect the body’s vital organs (according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, still practiced today). Because Green Tea is not fermented (like black tea), it retains its green color and thus the plant’s crucial Polyphenols. Polyphenols are the natural chemicals that protect plants from oxidative damage… thus making Green Tea Extract an incredible source of antioxidants for your skin and helping to safeguard your skin cells against harmful oxidation. .
Green Tea Extract also inhibits the breakdown of collagen and elastin, helping your skin to maintain its structural integrity and prevent a sagging complexion. It accomplishes this important task by inhibiting the enzymes that break down collagen and elastin, thereby helping to keep your skin firm and prevent premature signs of aging.
