It promotes healthy aging...
Matcha’s ability to increase focus and overall well-being could be attributed to it’s high content of antioxidants. Antioxidants are a common ingredient in many skin-care products that boast younger, healthier skin - ours included! Specifically, Matcha contains catechins which are a form of pholyphenol that slow cell degeneration for a more youthful complexions. Antioxidants due this by stabilizing free radicals and protecting against further damage to the skin. With that said, matcha reduces harm from UV radiation as a helpful tool in response to sun-exposure.

It’s a healer for acne-prone skin...
One of the most powerful antioxidants in Matcha is Epigallocatechin Gallate, or EGCG for short. This nutrient plays a huge role in preserving the beauty of a natural complexion. It fights bacteria that causes acne, and offers lasting improvements for a clean, glowing epidermis.


It’s a natural detoxifier...
Sad to say, but the greatest harm done to skin can be caused by its owner - you! Using chemical products, sun-tanning and eating greasy foods are just a few examples of how we deliberately destroy our epidermis. Thankfully there are natural detoxifiers on this earth can counteract the effects of toxins. Chlorophyll is one of the them. This green pigment is responsible for our Matcha Face Mask’s vibrant color and extensive health benefits. It extracts impurities and unclogs pore, leaving skin with a youthful, restored glow.

It’s anti-inflammatory…
One other key element found in Matcha is Vitamin K. This valuable nutrient corrects skin discoloration, such as bruisings or dark circles, and reduces inflammation. As noted, Matcha is rich in antioxidants, making it a key source of vitamins and minerals for healthy, happy skin.
