Heliami™ Green Tea EC

Add to favourites
The history of tea dates back to 3000 BC. The Chinese and Hindus both claim the honour of being the first to drink the famous concoction. According to the legend, the Emperor-God Shen Nung was boiling water under a tree for a drink when the wind swept a few leaves off the tree and into the water. The emperor tasted it and found its flavour very delicate. It was a wild tea plant. Buddhist monks drink a lot of Tea as it helps them stay awake during their long meditations. The drink’s popularity then spread to Europe in the 17th Century and the traditional English teatime was launched by the Duchess of Bedford in the early 19th Century. There are five types of Tea, each obtained from the same species but with the leaves treated differently. For green tea, the leaves are quickly heat-dried (to kill the enzymes) then rolled and dried again; this offers an unfermented tea. Tea leaves contain large quantities of antioxidant substances which act against free radicals and protect our cells from everyday aggressions. Green tea is therefore traditionally used in consumer care as an active protective compound. The oily extract of green tea contains fatty acids (mainly oleic acid) and phytosterols with emollient and regenerating powers. Like other Heliami™ ingredients, this organic botanical is extracted in high-oleic acid sunflower oil, which is more effective at preserving the skin barrier integrity and preventing skin dehydration compared to conventional sunflower oil.
