Go Greeeeeen Tea!

Green tea is not only great for your heart, but for your skin and hair too.

Green tea is not only great for your heart, but for your skin and hair too.

Did the title catch your attention? I hope so…The benefits of drinking green tea are many: weight loss, increased metabolism, inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, and improving the immune system to name a few. Green tea contains EGCG, a powerful  antioxidant which kills cancer cells while leaving healthy cells alone.

If green tea is not part of your daily diet, it should be.

Green tea is so healthy in our diet but what can it do in our beauty products?

There are times when your hair needs a break from regular shampoo and needs a clarifying shampoo to remove buildup of styling products. Enter Aubrey Organics Green Tea Clarifying Shampoo.

It deep cleans and rinses well leaving the hair healthy and manageable. It contains herbal extracts and nutrients which make the hair easy to style and cuts down on dry time (who doesn’t need more time in their beauty routine??)

Green tea and nettle extract protect hair and tone the scalp. Aloe replenishes moisture while almond protein strengthens hair fiber, fullness, and manageability. You will be so pleased when you use this shampoo as it contains so sulfates, parabens, or chemicals. It’s also vegan and is not tested on animals. Here are the complete ingredients:

INGREDIENTS: Deionized Water, Coconut Oil-Corn Oil Soap, Organic Green Tea Extract (Organic Green Tea, Organic Nettle, Natural Grain Alcohol), Organic Aloe Vera, Carrageenan, Organic Lemon Peel Oil, Almond Protein, Organic Blue Camomile Oil, Aubrey’s Preservative (Citrus Seed Extract, Vitamins A, C and E).

You can explore the entire line of green tea products at Aubrey Organics.

Another company who have tapped into the power of green tea is Burt’s Bees. They make a collection of products utilizing this wonder ingredient. I was able to find a Green Tea set at Marshall’s (I am always looking for deals!) It contained a 12 oz. shampoo, 12 oz. conditioner, 8 oz. hand soap, and a soap bar.

Burt’s Bees Color Keeper Shampoo and Conditioner uses green tea and fennel seed to help preserve color. This is a good shampoo, but when compared with Aubrey, I definitely like the results from the Aubrey collection better. My hair seems to stay cleaner longer than when I use the Burt’s Bees. If you decide to try both lines, it is up to you to decide which you like better.

Now it’s your turn!

What do you think about green tea? Do you make it a daily part of your diet or beauty routine?

Until next time, stay natural… stay beautiful… go green (tea!)

P.S. This post is from the archives…since this post was written, I’ve noticed Aubrey Organics has gone down a bit in quality and ingredient integrity. I’ve even heard there’s a lawsuit right now about their ingredient claims. I believe this has something to do with the fact that their founder, Aubrey Hampton passed away last year and they have gotten away from his belief system of safe, natural products.

    Green tea is a wonder-herb…actually, so are all the teas (white, red and green). They’re full of polyphenols (potent antioxidants) that are wonderful for both our internal and external health. If you’re interested, we also have a skin care herbarium that talks about green tea as a natural cosmetic ingredient. The URL is http://www.myalchemilla.com/Herbarium/GreenTea.html (for Camellia sinensis – tea). (There are dozens of other plants in there as well.)
