Highly concentrated antioxidant replenishment that arms skin against environmental stressors, such as free radicals from UV rays and pollution. This hero product sports its trademark rich amber colour derived from its exceptional levels of Epigallocatechin gallates (EGCG’s) from organic green tea, white tea. In addition, green tea extract enhances the activity of the enzyme superoxide dismutase, which helps quench excess superoxide radicals and other reactive oxygen species that lead to premature aging¹. Resveratrol from whole organic red grapes helps to protect against sun damage, improves collagen synthesis, and reduces cell damage².
Sources: ¹ Dr. Stephen Hsu, a cell biologist in the Medical College of Georgia, USA has uncovered a wealth of information about green tea over the years. He began studying the most abundant green tea polyphenol, EGCG. Using pooled human keratinocytes (skin cells), he and his colleagues studied the normal growth of the skin cells and compared it to the growth of the cells when exposed to EGCG. To their astonishment, they found that EGCG reactivated dying skin cells. “Cells that migrate toward the surface of the skin normally live about 28 days, and by day 20, they basically sit on the upper layer of the skin getting ready to die," Dr. Hsu said. "But EGCG reactivates them. EGCG seems to be a fountain of youth for skin cells. "When exposed to EGCG, the old cells found in the upper layers of the epidermis appear to start dividing again," Dr. Hsu said. "They make DNA and produce more energy. They are reactivated. Dr. Ronald Hoffman states “as a faculty member of the American College for Advancement in Medicine who teaches an anti-aging workshop, I put all my patients with skin care concerns on EGCG”. ² Li YM, Chan HY, Huang Y, Chen ZY.
