The Science of Tea
The tea plant contains over 30% polyphenols, one of the highest concentrations existing in nature. Polyphenols have an antioxidant efficacy 200 times higher than vitamin E. They counteract the aging process caused by free radicals: molecules that attack cells and are responsible for 4 out of 5 wrinkles.
Tea is overflowing with active ingredients that have extraordinary cosmetic properties. Most notably, it is a precious source of catechins, the most powerful polyphenols in nature, potent antioxidant activators that can boost the power of the naturally-occurring anti-free radical molecules in the body. Very recent scientific studies have highlighted this extraordinary power. But that’s not all. It also contains EGCG, or epigallocatechin, and vitamin C, two other natural antioxidants that fight those same free radicals and other cell-oxidation processes. Then there are vitamins A, B, E and K, as well as caffeine, theobromine, tannins, potassium, fluorine, zinc, magnesium and manganese, to complete its cosmetic action, by protecting, energizing, toning and revitalizing the skin.
Catechins: The most powerful polyphenols in nature, genuine antioxidant activators that can boost the power of the anti-free radical molecules already present naturally in the body.
Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG): A super anti-oxidant ingredient more powerful than vitamin E.
Vitamins A, B, E and K: Protecting, energizing, toning action.
Caffeine: Stimulating, lipolytic action.
Theobromine: Energizes and speeds up metabolism .
Tannins: Anti-inflammatory action.
Potassium, Fluorine, Zinc, Magnesium and Manganese: For all-round cosmetic action: protecting, energizing, toning, revitalizing, regenerating.
