Matcha literally means "ground tea".
For the high-quality Matcha tea, only the uppermost, freshly sprouted leaves of the Matcha tea plant are picked by hand and steamed in a particularly gentle process and dried directly. Matcha is Japan's most valuable tea and, with its high caffeine content, a wonderful pick-me-up.
But matcha also has a great effect on the skin!
It contains many different antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. These ensure a clear complexion. The antioxidant content, for example, is 100 times higher than that of blueberries - a real beauty booster.
For example, the antioxidant chlorophyll, which has wound-healing and detoxifying effects. So perfect to care for blemished or inflammation-prone skin.
Catechins, antioxidants that fight bacteria and infections, are also abundant. They prevent free radicals from damaging the skin cell membrane. This slows down the ageing process. Matcha is also a real anti-aging miracle.
Sensitive and dry skin also benefits from matcha, as it also contains the amino acid L-theanine, which has a calming and balancing effect on the skin.
As you can see, if you include matcha cosmetics (e.g. in the form of creams, masks or serums) in your daily skincare routine, nothing stands in the way of an incredible glow.
