Green tea skincare benefits: what is green tea

Before we talk about the skincare benefits of green tea, do you know what exactly “green tea” is?? Let’s talk about that first.

Green tea is the name of Japanese tea

Although the term literally includes the meaning “green tea,” strictly speaking, green tea is tea that has not been fermented (unfermented tea).

When making green tea, raw tea leaves are heated in a process called ”sasesei”(さっせい), which stops oxidative enzymes from working at an early stage. This process produces a beautiful green tea that is close to the original color of the tea leaves.

Green tea contains a type of polyphenol called a catechin. Catechins are antioxidants that help prevent cell damage and provide other health benefits such as improved cognitive function, weight loss, lowered blood pressure, etc

Is there demand?

These days, don’t you see a lot of types of green tea skincare products?
The global tea-based skincare market is expected to grow positively.

The global tea-based skincare market is driven by the rapidly growing demand for organic and natural personal care products.

In addition, the growing influence of social media, increasing demand for cosmetics, increasing advertising promoting tea-based skin care, the proliferation of e-commerce worldwide, and rising personal incomes provide new opportunities for the global tea-based skin care industry.

What kinds of products can we create

If you are considering creating green tea related products, I recommend skincare!
Mainly skincare products such as lotion, serum, cream, and sheet mask are easy to start.
Body care is also the choice, such as boy soap, body lotion, scrub etc.

Powder-type health foods made from green tea would be a good idea as well.

Green tea skincare benefits: can we use green tea for skincare

In recent years, green tea has also become a popular ingredient in skincare products. This is because green tea contains a number of antioxidants and other nutrients that can benefit the skin. In this section, I will focus on some of the main advantages of green tea as a skincare ingredient.

Skincare benefits:Antioxidant

Catechins, a typical component of green tea, have strong bactericidal and antioxidant effects. It is said to prevent acne and other skin problems, as well as freckles and blemishes.

Green tea is also rich in vitamin C, which helps maintain skin elasticity and clarity. Green tea and beautiful skin are so deeply connected that we feel the skin beautifying effects of green tea!

Skincare benefits:Whitening

In addition to the catechins mentioned above, green tea contains chlorophyll, which has antibacterial and bactericidal properties. When chlorophyll combines with vitamin C, it enhances whitening and skin whitening effects.

Also, whitening and skin lightening effects can be expected because it lightens melanin pigment.

The ingredients name is not “green tea”?

If you are trying to create green tea skincare products, probably you’ll expect to see “Green tea extract” or other ingredients name including “green tea”.
However, there are no skincare ingredients that are named green tea.

The most commonly used green tea related skincare ingredient is “Camellia sinensis”.
It is an extract (plant extract) obtained by extracting the leaves of Camellia sinensis with water, ethanol, glycerin, etc.

Green tea skincare benefits: not only skincare benefits

In the last section, here are some things that can be promoted as features apart from skin care benefits if you are creating green tea skin care,

The Japan value

Japan is one of the world’s leading skincare nations, especially, safety and reliability are top class. The name “Made in Japan” has such a high name value that some people will buy it just because it says “Made in Japan,” and we receive many inquiries from overseas customers.

I think the image of “Japan = green tea” is also strong in the world, so if you want to use green tea in your skincare products, we highly recommend Japanese OEM manufacturers.

Relaxation and aromatherapy

The scent of green tea has been shown to have a calming effect on the mind and body. Inhaling the aroma of green tea can help to reduce anxiety, improve focus, and promote feelings of peace and well-being.

I was mainly introducing green tea skincare in this article, but of course, green tea’s aroma drop is an option as a cosmetic. You can add a few drops of essential oil from green tea to a diffuser or spray bottle. If you are looking for a natural way to relax and de-stress, green tea aromatherapy is a great option. It is effective and easy to do.


The camellia sinensis used in green tea skin care is plant-derived, so if you are looking for natural-based skincare products, is it a great ingredient to use.

In addition to camellia sinensis, there are a variety of other green tea-related ingredients. For more organic and sustainable options, we recommend checking with the factory before proceeding.


Today I introduced the power of green tea and its effects as a skin care product.
Green tea has a strong image as a beverage, but it has long been used as an ingredient in skincare products in Japan, and now its demand is rising not only in Japan but also overseas.

Now that natural products are popular, why not try skin care products that utilize green tea ingredients?
We would be happy to assist you!
