Green Tea Overview

Green Tea gently soothes inflammation and reduces the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation.

A 2018 study showed the major polyphenolic compound present in green tea, EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), was found to exhibit antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties

In a 2016 study, participants took 1,500 mg of green tea extract for 4 weeks. At the conclusion of the study, participants showed a significant reduction in the red skin bumps acne causes.

Applying Green Tea topically can help your skin handle the ageing process better.  Studies have shown an improvement of skin elasticity in participants treated with a combination regimen of topical and oral green tea.
