Best Natural Green Tea Moisturizer Review
Green tea has long been known to be a powerful antioxidant that can fight free radicals and prevent or delay aging. Still, I was surprised to read in Wikipedia that green tea extract has twice more antioxidant properties than vitamin C!
Now, I am not giving you any ideas to give up on your precious vitamin C serum. Also, even though green tea is a potent antioxidamt, there is usually no information about the percentage of green tea included in green tea creams or moisturizers.
For a higher amount of green tea in your moisturizer, you can check whether it appears on the top of the ingredients’ list or, of course, contact the manufacturer for more details.
Apart from its antioxidant properties, green tea is also known for its anti inflammatory properties.
Here, I have selected to review some of the best green tea moisturizers that contain not only green tea but other skin beneficial natural and organic components. After carefully checking on the ingredients and good reputation of the brands, here are some good quality products with great users´ reviews.
