Green Tea Oil
Native of South East Asia, the Tea plant (Camellia sinensis) belongs to the the family Theaceae. All types of teas (Black, Oolong, Green, White and Yellow) are produced from this plant - the difference between them is the part of the plant used and the fermentation and processing. Green Tea Oil is widely used in the cosmetics industry to manufacture creams, soaps, shampoos, hair conditioners, lotions, perfumes and massage oils, because of its anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and astringent properties.
Rich in natural tocopherols, antioxidants and polyphenols, Green Tea Seed Oil is non-greasy, light and quickly absorbs into the skin, making it ideal for its moisturizing and soothing ability. It is also powerful antibacterial agent for treating acne and unclogging pores.
REPORTED BENEFITS AND USES
Green Tea Oil is suggested as a valuable ingredient in formulations to soothen the skin, fight skin ageing, moisturise the skin, promote collagen synthesis, retain skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, reduce inflammation disorders, and as hair care ingredient. Its antioxidant nature means it is useful for both preventative methods for skin care as well as for healing already damaged skin. Besides, Green Tea Oil is excellent for nourishing and strengthening your hair and scalp, and soothing irritation and swelling from hot conditions including rashes and eczema.
