Beauty from Around the World: Green Tea in China

Green tea is an ancient drink from China with a great reputation for its health benefits. It was first brewed nearly 5,000 years ago during the reign of Emporor Chen Nung.

Chock full of powerful antioxidants that help ward off free radicals and neutralize oxidative damage (the main culprits behind premature aging) green tea has been turned to for thousands of years as both a drink and as medicine, to help heal wounds and regulate blood sugar. Today, this natural ingredient has made the leap from the cup to the skincare cabinet, as seen in our Oil-Free Moisturizer SPF 30. The green tea extract used in skincare comes from the steaming and drying of the tea plant, Camellia sinesis. Check out the difference it can make in your skin!
