What is Green Tea?

Discover the wisdom of the ancients. Green tea has been cultivated and consumed for millennia; in fact, the plant was domesticated over five thousand years ago, making it one of the oldest crops treasured by ancient cultures. Tasty, refreshing and soothing to drink, our ancestors also quickly learned that Green Tea was a treasure trove of true health benefits. Over the centuries, science has uncovered many secrets of what and why behind Green Tea.

The Benefits of Green Tea in Skincare

Green Tea is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Ongoing research has found its benefits to heart and brain health as well as weight maintenance, and some research is pursuing Green Tea’s ability to reduce certain cancers. This ancient discovery continues to be on the leading edge of scientific innovation, and it is certainly a revolutionary ingredient in skincare.

Green Tea has high concentrations of “EGCG,” an antioxidant that helps neutralize harmful free radicals and protects cells and tissues from oxidative stress and damage. Formulated into skincare, ECGC’s antioxidant properties help reduce melanin production and fights free radicals that can irritate skin. Its anti-inflammatory powers can help reduce UV damage and balance sebum production, making Green Tea a most coveted skincare ingredient.

Ustawi has formulated our products with optimum concentrations of ECGC: In our Serums and Masks, where the powerful antioxidant works its magic to effectively combat hyperpigmentation, stress, and irritation; and our Moisturizer(s) to control sebum overproduction while boosting moisture retention for all skin types.
