Today, I want to talk about a couple of interesting plants we use in SKIN All Natural‘s products: Green tea, and Jasmine. Green tea‘s most active ingredients are known as flavanols, polyphenols and epigallocatechin gallate (or EGCG for short). EGCG has between 25 to 100 times the antioxidant power of vitamins C and A. This makes green tea an excellent, if unconventional sun block. Instead of blocking UV rays, it targets free radicals and reduces inflammation. We talked about synergy yesterday…green tea works extremely well in concert with traditional sun blocks.
Extracted from the flower, jasmine oil has a beautiful, rich, floral aroma that is irresistible. Its aroma is soothing and calming and can bring about a restful state for those who are suffering from depression and nervous tension. It’s often used as an aphrodisiac. Jasmine is beneficial to the treatment of dry, irritated, sensitive skin. It can relieve headaches, ease muscle cramping, invigorates dry or aging skin, and aids in the healing of wounds.
