Tea (green + white)
Tea extracts are powerful ingredients that have many beneficial properties for skin care products. Their high anti-oxidant composition as well as their high levels of polyphenols makes green and white tea well suited for skin protection and rejuvenation. The Argan Tree Body Wash and Body Lotion use a combination of white and green tea leaf extracts in their formulations.
1. Helps block sun rays
Although tea alone cannot act as sun block, using tea extract in sun block has shown to be beneficial in protecting the skin from sun damage. A study published in Skin Research and Technology 2009 found that minimal tea extract exhibited marked ability in limiting sun ray damage to the skin.
2. Protects the skin
Green and white tea both contain high levels of catechin polyphenols that are capable of strengthening the skin’s immune system. This is done by preventing damage due to oxidation stress and free radicals, as confirmed by the director of the Skin Study Center at University Hospitals in Cleveland.
3. Anti-aging properties
Full of essential anti-oxidants, tea leaves are beneficial for treating wrinkles and firming the skin. This is further supplemented by their caffeine content, which makes them well suited for The Argan Tree Body Wash and Body Lotion formulations.
