Matcha Ceremonial Tea Powder



Matcha Green Tea has recently been discovered to have many nutritional and healthful qualities, for example, it contains 20 times the antioxidant effect of Vitamin E.

When used in facial creams and lotions, green tea increases the effect of sunscreens, and it may be found to help protect skin from harmful UV Rays. A special green tea is used in some cosmetics for this purpose. Called Matcha, it's high in methylxanthines, which are believed (by the National Cancer Institute) to prevent skin cancer. Matcha can be traced back to the Sung dynasty in China, over two thousand years ago.

Green tea also helps to prevent irritation of the skin caused by glycolic acid and other irritating chemicals that are used in skin peels and facial masks. Green tea even has anti-cellulite properties as well as having a high caffeine content!
