Biochemica® Matcha Green Tea butter is produced from the microfine powder of ground Camel­lia Sinensis (green tea) leaves. The leaves are dried and then ground into a powder. Used by Asian philosophers and poets for over 1200 years in rolled cakes and elixirs, matcha is also valued for use in cosmetics and toiletries due to its high content of polyphenols, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg) and xan­thines. Green tea can protect the skin from aging and serious damage in general from the sun’s UVB rays. Xanthines present in matcha, such as Caffeine and Theobromine, have natural anti-inflammatory, anti-cel­lulite and anti-irritancy effects. When a non-covalent bond forms between a xanthine and polyphenol, the skin protecting characteristics are greatly enhanced. Now add in the fact that EGCg is an antioxidant that is 20 times stronger than tocopherol and over 65 times stronger in antioxidant properties than the average fruit or vegetable, while also being an insatiable free radical scavenger, and it is plain to see the skin protec­tion potential that the active ingredients in matcha provide.


Biochemica® Matcha Green Tea

Biochemica® Matcha Green Tea butter is produced using finely ground green tea leaf powder, and blending it into a propri­etary blend of Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil and select hydrogenated vegetable oils to produce a butter-like material suitable for use in cosmetics and toiletries. Biochemica® Matcha Green Tea butter may be used in body care, soaps, facial creams, lotions, and sun­screens to impart moisturization, particularly for dry, damaged skin (i.e., eczema, psoriasis, and mastalgia.)
