5 Benefits Of Green Tea Oil For Your Skin And Hair

We all know the benefits of green tea as a beverage. Did you know that you can use green tea oil for great skincare and hair treatment? The benefits of green tea for our body internally also apply externally to our skin and hair care.


Here are the benefits of green tea oil for skincare and hair treatment:

1. Anti-Aging

Green tea contains powerful antioxidants from catechins, gallates, and flavonoids, which protect the skin from damage caused by UV radiation and free radicals from the environment. These help to repair and rejuvenate collagen, thereby reducing wrinkles and fine lines; they also improve skin’s resiliency. Green tea oil has many anti-aging properties.

2. Moisturizing

Green tea oil penetrates quickly and deeply into the inner layers of the skin, providing hydration without feeling oily.

3. Anti-Bacteria And Anti-Fungal

Research conducted in a hospital found that the polyphenols in green tea were effective in killing super-bugs. Green tea oil is also effective for treating acne on skin, as well as removing odour caused by bacteria and fungus present in underarm sweat.

4. Fat-Burning

Green tea increases the fat-burning metabolism and reduces cellulite. When applied on the face and body, it can help to trim the fat and cellulite underneath the skin.

5. Healthy Hair

When applied to damaged, dyed, or chemically treated hair, green tea oil adds shine and smoothness to the hair.

Korean scientists at the Seoul National University College of Medicine conducted research on mice, which showed that catechins (epigallocatechin-3-gallates) can promote growth in the hair follicles by stimulating dermal papilla cells to boost hair production, thus, preventing hair loss. The antioxidant properties of catechins also keep hair healthier, and make it grow at an optimum rate.

Most of the green tea extract used has been converted into water-based products.

Unicity has found a way to extract organic green tea into an oil-soluble product. Besides organic green tea, it also contains organic jojoba oil, botanical squalane and natural vitamin E. Try out this product to reap the benefits for your skin and hair.
