At LILY SADO, we love Green Tea—not only for eating and drinking, but also for liberally smearing on our skin. Our TEA+C brand was named after this amazing phytonutrient. We’d confidently put Green Tea up against any other organic skincare ingredient because you simply can’t beat its amazing antioxidant and nutritive benefits.
We source only the best Green Tea Matcha (from the Camellia sinensis shrub) and Camellia Oleifera (Green Tea Oil). Our products than contain White Tea and Black Tea are also derived from Camellia sinensis.
Camellia Sinensis derives from freshly picked Green Tea leaves. This highly concentrated extract is not only packed with antioxidants, it also contains Methylxanthines, which help to increase circulation, improving the tone and health of your skin.
A is for Antioxidants—the superheroes of skin rejuvenation. Antioxidants do daily battle against rogue free radicals (enemies to our skin in the forms of pollution, toxins, and sunlight that cause premature aging). The damage they cause, manifests in wrinkles, brown spots, and skin cancer. Our bodies produce antioxidants to fight free radicals, but we can significantly boost our defenses by applying more to our skin via quality skincare.
ANTIOXIDANTS in Green Tea promote DNA repair by combating free radicals that lead to early aging and skin damage, while increasing skin elasticity, firmness, and tone. Green Tea contains the unique antioxidant EGCG that powerfully protects cells and molecules from damage.
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY–Green Tea boosts collagen levels to plump skin and fill in fine lines and wrinkles for a healthy glowing complexion. High levels of catechins provide a calming and soothing effect, reducing irritations, redness, and swelling.
ANTI-BACTERIAL properties in Green Tea quickly liberate your pores of excess oil and blackheads. It contains Polyphenols that fight bacteria to prevent acne, blemishes, and inflammation for smoother, toned skin.
VITAMINS B2, C, and E – Strength in numbers! Green Tea is chock full of nourishing vitamins—all essential for healthy skin. Pro vitamin B2 boosts collagen for more youthful skin structure and firmness. C is on standby, armed with even more antioxidants to fight toxins and revitalize tired, gloomy skin. Vitamin E is an intense hydrator, nourishing skin and supporting cell growth to combat dry skin and premature aging.
CAFFEINE & TANNINS in Green Tea treat dark circles and puffy, swelled eyes by shrinking blood vessels around the eyes.
Japanese Green Tea Matcha (as used in our TEA+C Green Tea & Vitamin C Products) is the Dom Perignon of Green Tea. Matcha uses tea leaves from plants that are shaded from direct sunlight. They are then steamed, dried, and powdered by traditional methods to make premium Matcha. Unlike standard Green Tea (called Sencha), Matcha is much more refined and revered by its association to the ancient Tea Ceremony, which dates back to 1191.
Green Tea Matcha is like Green Tea on steroids. No other phytonutrient comes close to its antioxidant levels. Analysis shows that Matcha contains higher antioxidant levels vs. all fruits and vegetables. ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity.
GREEN TEA OIL is derived from Green Tree Bush blossoms. These gorgeous little white flowers produce a heavenly oil that has been used for thousands of years to condition and tone skin and prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
ANTISEPTIC PROPERTIES – Neutralize oil production to help prevent acne.
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY – Soothes dry and itchy skin, while reducing redness and swelling. Improves and balances skin tone.
