For years, we've turned to green tea only as a way to boost energy because you DO NOT want to see us on the sauce...aka coffee🤪. As time progressed, we learned that there are a ton of different ways to incorporate it into our skincare routine as well.
There's this compound in green tea called EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) that is packed with antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties that are said to be helpful for acne and oily skin.
According to the US National Library of Medicine, this compound is also known to fight DNA damage from UV rays which in turn makes green tea a major anti-aging ingredient. When used as a topical and/or oral solution, it can help to improve elasticity and microrelief in our skin, and to top it off, the moisturizing effects are ah-ma-zing. No cap (did we say it right?).
With this information, we immediately got to work on identifying the best ingredients for a soap that would be perfect for those who struggle with oily skin and acne. Combined with lemon essential oil, our handcrafted goat milk soap is the answer to your daily skincare regimen prayers and provides the refreshing boost of energy you need to start your day.
As a reminder, different therapies work for different people. We by no means are claiming that our products are the solution to your skincare needs because we do not have the credentials to do so. All claims in this post as merely opinion-based and nothing more.
Now, let's get back to why we love our Lemon Green Tea Matcha Goat Milk Soap so much 😉.
We would be remiss if we didn't bring up the elephant in the room--Covid-19. When we embarked on our search for the perfect soap bars, there were three very important factors in mind and creating a tough cleansing product was ABSOLUTELY one of them.
The importance of formulating recipes that would speak to antibacterial needs, the immunocompromised community, and those suffering with skin sensitivies was a must and it was extremely important for us to explain this thought process to our customers as well.
As we noted earlier, green tea is known for its antibacterial properties and is said to be great for killing systemic bacterial inflammation providing smoother, toned skin. As if it couldn't get any better, the polyphenols in green tea work to fight against infection as well (hey immunocompromised friends 🙋🏽♀️), and damage bacterial tissue layers, making it a great ingredient for your daily cleansing products.

We spoke to you guys briefly about our Green Tea Lavender Lip Balm in a previous post about the benefits of shea butter. Because we didn't want to steal the spotlight from our friend--shea butter, we decided to wait until now to explain to you how the recipe came together.
Did you know that green tea is packed with Vitamin B2 and E? While both are vital for the maintenance of healthy skin, it is super important to note that Vitamin E supports new skin cell growth and acts as a hydrator.
Ding, ding, ding. No brainer.
Being that green tea is rich in antioxidants and naturally occuring compounds called tannins, it acts as the perfect solution for those dehydrated lips in the winter. Combined with lavender oil and shea butter, both also known for their moisturizing powers, we were well on our way to creating the perfect balm right before the fridged cold started knocking on our doors!
So, there you have it. Why do we love green tea as an ingredient so much?
