White Tea Extract is on everyone’s list of super-ingredients in beauty products, due to their anti-aging and immune-boosting powers!
Researchers believe that the antioxidants in white tea extract reduce immune cell damage and oxidative stress to the skin, a type of stress thought to promote uneven pigmentation, wrinkles, and even skin cancer.
As an anti-aging ingredient, white tea extract helps the proteins collagen and elastin do their assigned tasks for the skin. All skin contains the enzymes MMP (matrix metalloproteinases), which is healthy, but the amount increases with age. Unfortunately, increased levels of MMP reduce skin’s collagen and elastin, which keeps our skin looking young. Applying white tea extract to the skin helps inhibit the activity of MMP, so collagen and elastin are able to do their jobs promoting skin’s freshness, without feeding firmness-reducing, wrinkle-inducing enzymes.
