Green tea (Camellia sinensis) has long been known for its positive effect on the human body. It has been used to prepare beverages for more than 3000 years and is the most commonly used beverage worldwide. The leaves contain almost all essential vitamins and minerals. Green tea also contains stimulating caffeine or theine. In general, the plant is said to promote health and even contribute to a longer life if consumed regularly.

The aroma of green tea is understated and gentle. It impresses with a particularly subtle scent and perfectly matches all floral and oriental fragrances. When used sparingly, it is also suitable for men‘s fragrances.

Just like the positive effect gained when drinking green tea in beverage form, so too, the scent have favorable results. The pleasant aroma awakens the body to new life.

Green tea extract has at least one ingredient that can directly impact cellulite: Theobromine. Theobromine is an alkaloid that can penetrate the skin. It is known to stimulate the release of stored fat. Green tea extract is also quite good for the skin. It is an anti-inflammatory, which can help to counteract the irritating effects of more powerful skincare ingredients. It is an all-around good ally in the fight against cellulite.

A supremely potent antioxidant, Green Tea Extract works to significantly slow the signs of aging caused by free radical damage. The extract is powered by EGCG and promotes optimal skin health while smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and hydrating, lifting, and tightening dry skin. Although it soothes the skin, it also has anti-inflammatory properties.

Not only does it have potent antioxidant properties and free radical scavenging activities, as well as antimicrobial activity against P. acnes, but it also protects against premature skin aging by inhibiting the collagen-weakening enzyme collagenase. This vital extract is a perfect natural ingredient for anti-aging and sun-care formulations.
