{Camellia sinensis}

General: Green tea is made from Camellia sinensis leaves that have not undergone the oxidation and withering process used to make oolong and black tea. Consumed in China at least 4000 years ago, green tea provides a mild dose of caffine plus a variety of antioxidants.

Skin Benefits: Contains high levels of polyphenols (bioflavonoids) and is a rich source of EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate) an antioxidant that is over 200 times more potent than vitamin E in fighting free radicals and pro-oxidants. The natural caffeine is astringent and helps diminish puffiness. Geranium Under Eye Cream, Coconut Exfoliating MaskHerbal Day and Night Cream all employ the antioxidant, astringent qualities of green tea.
