INGREDIENT SPOTLIGHT: Matcha Green Tea

What is this and why would I put it on my face?  We asked ourselves the same questions until we began to do our research on the ingredient (just being honest).  Matcha green tea is a bit different than regular green tea.  Regular green tea is steeped in hot water until its nutrients filter into the water and then the tea bag is discarded.  We drink the water and receive a part of the herbs benefits.  Matcha green tea is the actual tea leaves pulverized into a powder.  We drink this powder in its entirety and receive more minerals and vitamins then regular green tea.  This tea is good for drinking and wonderful for the skin as a masque.  The skin benefits Matcha Green Tea provides are:

  • Chlorophyll for detoxification of the skin
  • Antioxidants to ease inflammation and cleanse the skin from unwanted bacteria
  • Vitamins A, C, E, K, B, and amino acids provide nutrients for cellular repair

Enjoy the benefits of matcha green tea in your skin care regimen.

Love the skin you're in,

The esso skin care team
