Brew: It's good for you.
For thousands of years Tea has been seen as a key to good health, happiness, and wisdom in the East. Having a cup of tea with your meals and throughout the day not only provides a good dose of antioxidants, but also some time for you to relax and sit still.
Tea drinkers are healthier, physically, mentally and we believe emotionally too!
Multiple studies have shown that the catechins (antioxidants) in (green) tea extract are beneficial to health. Ranging from protecting the body from cardiovascular and degenerative diseases to helping metabolism burn fat and increasing memory and other cognitive functions.
Drinking tea also provides a sense a calm and focus that we think is SO good for you. At Mermaid Cove Organics a cup of tea (usually green or black) is never far away when we are working. It not only gives us a caffeine boost, but also makes us simply feel wonderful! (Drinking tea from gorgeous cups makes it all the more special).
BENEFITS OF TEA
It doesn't come as a surprise that with tea with all it's great properties was included into skincare products. Especially green tea extract has proven to be very beneficial to skincare.
Camellia sinensis is the plant of which all tea is made (black, green, white) and it is the extract or oil of this plant that is used in skincare.
The high amounts of antioxidants in camellia oil or extracts have a toning and moisturising effect on the skin whilst offering protection from free radicals. Perfect for sensitive skin that needs extra protection or to soothe inflammation.
So, if you have skin that needs an extra something to feel healthy, try using products with tea oil, extract or powder - after all "a cup of Tea solves everything".
