An ancient medicinal plant, green tea is known all over the world and is consumed mainly as a hot drink. But did you know that it has many benefits for your skin too? We reveal its secrets.
Brief history and origins of green tea.
Native to South-East Asia, the tea tree is a small rustic tree with evergreen leaves (do not fall in autumn), like the pine tree we know so well. It grows at altitudes between 1,000 and 2,000 metres and flourishes in warm, humid climates.
Green tea is a powerful medicinal plant that has been known for thousands of years for its many properties. Its history dates back over 5,000 years in China! Unlike black tea, green tea does not pass through a fermentation stage: this means it is richer in antioxidants.
Consumed pure or in flavoured varieties all over the world, it is a drink that never goes out of fashion. Green tea is recognised for its antioxidant and fat-burning action, as well as for its caffeine content which provides a draining action for the body.
Green tea, an exceptional moisturising and detoxifying ingredient for the skin.
As well as being a comforting drink offering numerous health benefits, green tea is also an important ingredient that offers multiple advantages in cosmetics applications.
Its rich content of natural antioxidants (polyphenols) gives green tea a wide range of properties: it helps to hydrate the skin and protect it from the effects of the free radicals responsible for premature skin ageing. As well as helping to preserve skin’s elasticity and youthful appearance, green tea is also said to have a soothing and purifying effect.
In short, an ingredient with a whole lot to offer the skin and body!
