Green Tea Benefits for Skin:

  • Antioxidant Properties
  • Hydration


Green tea extract is rich in polyphenols, predominantly comprised of four specific catechins: epicatechin, epigallocatechin, epicatequinagalato, and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). Owing to this robust combination of catechins, green tea stands out as one of the most beneficial teas available. When incorporated into skincare and cosmetic products, green tea extract has demonstrated effective skin barrier preservation and retention, making it an excellent ingredient for offering antioxidant defense and hydration.[1]

The high polyphenol content in green tea extract allows it, when applied topically, to furnish the skin with robust antioxidant capabilities, neutralizing environmental free radicals. Furthermore, green tea extract has been observed to elevate skin hydration by enhancing the skin's ability to retain moisture. This hydrating advantage can also ameliorate skin coarseness, resulting in a softer, smoother skin texture.[1]
