By now, all of us heard about all the healthy, skin saving benefits of tea. Tea is loaded with polyphenols like flavanoids, catechins and EGCG which reduces free radical damage and is very skin soothing. Free radical damage causes age spots, wrinkles, sagging, dullness and other aging, visible flaws which tea applied topically helps reduce, prevent and mildly correct. Whenever I get the chance, I brew a strong pot of organic green tea and wait until it cools down and use it to rinse my skin. If I ever wake up with puffy eyes, I soak a green tea bag in tepid water and place them on my eyes because green tea is a diuretic which helps drain puffiness. With all the amazing health and beauty benefits of tea, I can’t help but to be obsessed with using, applying and drinking tea!
White Tea, Green Tea and Black Tea are all from the same camellia sinesis plant. The difference is -White Tea is uncooked and minimally processed;Green Tea was slightly “cooked” or “steamed” and Black Tea is fully fermented which causes the leaves to have the maximum amount of caffeine and tannins.
Not only do we utilize the healthy benefits of tea in our skincare but we also use tea leaves for it’s rich color! We mill black tea leaves into a very fine powder (micronized black tea leaves) and blend it into a very nourishing, lash conditioning base of vitamins, oat and wheat protein, cocoa butter, and herbal extracts to make the most healthy mascara. The mascara dramatically lengthens and separates while our high pigmented liquid liner creates a jet black, long lasting liquid line. I used to be skeptical and wondered if “healthy” can also mean “high performing”. With 100% Pure mascaras & liquid liners, you get the best of both worlds – you get a truly 100% pure formula that’s healthy and lash conditioning but will also give you long, gorgeous lashes & a jet black line! In addition to our black tea that’s the richest, blackest black color, we also have mascaras & liners colored from blackberries, blueberry skin and chocolate which also contains black tea leaves as the base.
