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.
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.
