Green Tea inhibits degradation of Collagen & Elastin
There have been many studies showing that Green Tea inhibits Anti- Collagenase and Anti-Elastase . Polyphenols present in Green Tea have been shown in many studies to inhibit Collagenase, an enzyme responsible for decaying of Collagen in the Skin (Morazzoni et al., 1995; Makimura et al., 1993). Green tea has also been shown to inhibit Elastase, the enzyme responsible fro degradation of Elastin. These findings show that by using Green Tea for it's Anti Aging effects it will help preserve the Collagen and Elastin in the skin. Coupled with it's amazing anti inflammatory, photo protective properties as well as it's abilities to rejuvenate skin cells, you can't look past Green tea as a natural potent Anti Aging essential for the skin. White Lotus's range of Green tea Serums designed for use with collagen induction therapy (skin needling, microneedling with the derma roller) is an essential aid for anyone serious on natural anti aging. What makes the white Lotus green tea range unique is that they contain nothing but green tea oil and anti aging herbs (no petrochemicals, fragrances, SLS, preservatives etc) You are really buying a bottle of Organic Green Tea, not just water with 2% added green tea and a toxic cocktail of chemicals!
