Organic Green Tea SNO (Sunflower Oil)



Green tea is a natural defender. Over exposure to environmental stressors, like UV radiation, regularly leave our hair and skin susceptible to damage caused by free radicals. It is imperative to protect the hair and skin from free radicals with powerful antioxidants, such as those found in green tea. Green tea is laden with defensive antioxidants that help fight the appearance of fine line and wrinkles and help maintain healthy, shiny hair.


Archeological findings suggest that green tea has been consumed for over 5,000 years, while other evidence suggests that natives of eastern Asia have been using the potent antioxidant for more than 500,000 years! Traditionally, green tea has been used in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicines as a stimulant, diuretic and astringent. Additionally, it has been observed as a means to regulate the body temperature and blood sugar while promoting digestion and improving the mental process.


Extracts of green tea contain tea polyphenols (catechins): catchin, gallogatechin, epicatechin, epigallocatechin, epicatechingallate and epigallocatechgallate (EGCG). These polyphenols have antioxidant activity and function as reactive-oxygen-species scavengers. Specifically, the polyphenols scavenge hydroxyl and peroxyl radicals while inhibiting lipid peroxidation and the oxidation of low-density lipoproteins. It is thought that these radicals increase the risk of certain cancers and are partly responsible for the physical appearance of aging. Catechins also have anti-inflammatory properties that have been helpful for treating arthritis, gout, dermatosis, and other inflammatory conditions. Efficacy studies have demonstrated that the polyphenols found in green tea are beneficial in providing protection against UVB-radiation. EGCG appears to have the greatest antioxidant activity and is believed to be more potent that ascorbate and reduced-glutathione. The polyphenols can also inhibit bacterial growth while acting as an astringent.


Organic Green Tea SNO is a USDA-NOP Certified Organic product extracted in sunflower oil. Intended for use in anhydrous formulations, Organic Green Tea SNO can be incorporated into hair or skincare applications, including hair serums and emulsions, to create an organic product line ideal for promoting a radiant, youthful aesthetic.
