Getting to Know our Key Ingredients: White Tea and Rose Tea
When we think of tea ingredients with skin-boosting properties, our mind often goes to green tea extract. Renowned for its anti-aging, soothing, and antioxidant properties, the beauty’s worst-kept secret has grown quickly in popularity over the last decade.
Lesser known are white tea and rose tea, but they are no less powerful. These potent powerhouse ingredients offer impressive benefits when incorporated into your skin, body, and hair care regimes.
Originating from the same plant as black, green, and oolong teas, white tea leaves undergo a different treatment compared to their counterparts. This process involves picking the youngest growth on the tea bush, before the leaves have fully opened, and drying it immediately to halt the oxidization. This allows it to retain the largest amount of antioxidants.
Best known as a caffeine-free tisane, rose tea is often used as an infusion in many sleepy teas, together with ingredients such as lavender and chamomile.
What are the Benefits of Tea in Skin and Hair Care Products?
Now don’t worry - you don’t need to drink copious cups of tea to take advantage of the wonderful benefits of white and rose tea leaves. By incorporating these ingredients into your skin, hair, and nail routines, you can up your beauty game significantly.
Some of these extraordinary benefits that you can expect include:
- Anti-aging properties
It’s been suggested that white tea extract holds anti-aging properties. Studies have shown that incorporating the extract into skin care products can protect skin cells from the damage caused by hydrogen peroxide, as well as help eliminate free radicals. This, in turn, means that products containing white tea can reduce signs of skin aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines.
- Anti-inflammatory properties:
White tea is packed with antioxidants, meaning that this ingredient also has excellent anti-inflammatory properties that help to decrease skin redness and inflammation.
- Collagen-boosting properties
White tea is also rich in phenols, a protein that is known to help boost the skin’s natural production of collagen, which translates into a firmer, softer, and younger-looking complexion.
- Hair growth
One of the antioxidants in white tea, epigallocatechin gallate, has also been suggested to improve hair growth while at the same time preventing and minimizing premature hair loss.
