Tea, in all its varieties - black, green and white - has long been used as an energizing and healing ingredient in skin care products. Due to the high content of antioxidants (antioxidants), the tea neutralizes the action of free radicals that damage the skin and cause premature aging. Although teas have a lot in common, each variety has its own unique properties.
TIMELESS GREEN TEA
Health benefits for the body and spirit of green tea have been known and appreciated for centuries. Geishas, on whose knowledge and experience we base our 4-step ritual, also benefit from the benefits of green tea and are well-versed in the brewing ceremony. Green tea is rich in antioxidants, including polyphenols. They effectively deal with the harmful effects of free radicals and can gradually reduce blood cholesterol levels. Together with its well-known antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, a wound-healing effect has been shown in fibroblast cells, involving complex pathophysiological processes such as inflammation, angiogenesis and collagen deposition.
Benefits of using products with green tea:
- Skin protection against aging
- Cleansing and matting oily acne-prone skin
- Reduction of excess sebum
- Protection against the harmful effects of UV radiation
- Soothing, and moisturizing irritation
You can find green tea in our Timeless collection.
RADIANT BLACK TEA
Contrary to younger teas; white and green, the black variety is the most mature. This is due to a higher concentration of tannin and a longer oxidation time during the drying and fermentation process.
Black tea has been used in skin care for hundreds of years, beginning in the Chinese Ming Dynasty. Like green, black tea contains antioxidants that help protect the skin from UV rays and environmental pollutants. What's more, the higher caffeine content means it is an excellent ingredient to improve skin tone and firmness. It is rich in polyphenols and flavonoids and helps the skin regenerate faster.
Benefits of using products with black tea:
- Prevention of premature aging
- Pigmentation reduction
- Help in the fight against imperfections
- Effect of radiant skin
- Deep hydration

SOOTHING OOLONG TEA
The differences between the types of teas are usually in the processing methods. Oolong tea is partially fermented. Furthermore, while green tea is not oxidized much and black tea is completely oxidized to a black color, oolong tea is only partially oxidized - which is responsible for the color and characteristic flavor of the tea.
Oolong contains flavonoids, caffeine, fluorine and theanine. Most of the benefits of oolong tea can be attributed to its catechins, which are some of the most powerful antioxidants and will keep your skin radiant and youthful. The antioxidants in tea can also help heal acne, blemishes and wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Oolong tea can prove to be a valuable ally in fighting free radicals or suppressing allergic reactions that cause eczema or atopic dermatitis.
Benefits of using products with oolong tea:
- Anti-inflammatory effect
- Inhibition of aging processes
- Combating imperfections and discoloration
- Alleviating the symptoms of atopic dermatitis and other allergies
