Green Tea - Green tea contains poly phenols, particularly catechins. Green tea also contains carotenoids, tocopherols, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), minerals such as chromium, manganese, selenium or zinc, and certain phytochemical compounds. It is a more potent antioxidant than black tea (PG Tips, that kinda tea) although black tea has substances which green tea does not such as theaflavin. All of these are amazing for the health of your body and skin.
Free Radicals - these are everyday what build up and accumulate in the skin and body and can degrade cells causing ageing and cancers, ways to neutralise these are through good skin care and health, good amounts of vitamins A,C and E are a tried and tested method of protection to neutralise before they wreck havoc on your skin and good looks.
Paraben - Paraben's (Methyl, Propyl etc) these are preservatives used in cosmetic products because they are such low cost, however there is so much controversy over these in skin care with links to cancer being found, mostly named breast cancer - they have been found in extremely low concentrations in breast cancer tumors. Higher priced products use different or more natural preservatives and some totally make products paraben free, however even high priced brands will sometimes contain these nasty preservatives, a personal favourite product line of mine is doTERRA they don’t use these ingredients however use incredibly caring ones instead (check out the reviews on the products to see more)
