Japanese Green Tea

Green Tea has powerful anti-aging properties due to its high concentration of naturally occurring compounds called polyphenols and cathechins which are very potent antioxidant agents. These natural substances help trap and destroy free radicals, singlet oxygen, and peroxides responsible for the aging process. 

Green tea extract has recently been linked to significant cell rejuvination by top cellular research biologist Dr. Stephen Hsu of the Medical college of Georgia department of biology. Dr. Hsu determined that the Polyphenols compounds in Green Tea Extract, are powerful anti-oxidants that increase elasticity and ward off free radicals. 

The active ingredient catechin, has been found to outperform Vitamin C and beta-carotene ten times in scavenging the alkyl peroxyl radical. Furthermore catechins have far-reaching positive effects on the entire body, including anti-carcinogenic properties.

In skincare preparations, Green Tea protects against the elements and helps restore the skin to a fresh and youthful appearance. 

Green Tea also extends the effectiveness of sun screen and has been shown to have strong anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties for cleaner and healthier looking skin, making it an ideal ingredient for the treatment of acne. 

The delicate scent of Green Tea helps restore a sense of calm, peace and overall well being.
