Camellia Sinensis Extract

 

Chemical name (INCI):
Camellia Sinensis Extract
Function:
SKIN CONDITIONING

Green tea (Camellia Sinensis) extract mostly consists of polyphenols, xanthenes (methyxanthine, theophylline) and tannins. Its polyphenols assure a strong antioxidant effect that protects the skin from the damaging effects of free radicals.

Methylxanthines stimulate skin microcirculation and therefore positively influence the tone and health of the skin. Theophylline activates the general metabolic rate, promoting lipolysis and the drainage of excess fluids. Tannins have purifying and astringent properties and are especially good for oily skin care.

Green tea extract is a good anti-inflammatory agent, thereby reducing inflammation in the skin, and most importantly, has an inhibitory action on collagenase (a collagen-reducing enzyme that breaks down collagen). Since green tea extract helps to inhibit collagenase, the topical use of green tea helps to promote the health and quantity of collagen, thereby maintaining firm and elastic skin.
