Green tea is a very powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing ingredient. Green tea is a rich source of epigallocatechin gallate, a very powerful antioxidant. Epigallocatechin gallate is made of polyphenols that target free radicals, particularly those caused by UV-induced skin damage. Green tea has been used extensively in Chinese & Ayurvedic Medicine and when applied in skin care products, it can help soothe sunburn. It can help reduce inflammation and help to protect the skin from sun damage and also help reduce puffiness under the eyes. As a result of its astringent properties, it is an excellent ingredient to help prevent skin breakouts and clear up existing breakouts.
