It’s well known that green tea, and more specifically, one of its active components, EGCG (Epigallocatechin-3-gallate) delivers a myriad of benefits to skin.

Green Tea Skin Benefits

Green tea itself contains polyphenols, high antioxidant nutrients which help to protect the skin against free radical damage. Studies have shown that it also:

  • Protects against the development of skin cancer
  • Reduces sebum production, thereby minimizing the development of acne
  • Minimizes rosacea
  • Slows down the skin aging process.

New Study on EGCG in Green Tea

A study recently published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, points to new skin care benefits attributed to EGCG. According to the article, the benefits extended beyond that of its antioxidant and inflammatory properties and showed that it contributed to an increase in skin hydration. The authors examined EGCG’s effect on hyaluronic acid synthase (HAS) and hyaluronidase (HYAL) gene expression, as well as antioxidant and anti-pigmentation properties.

Benefits of EGCG for Skin Care

EGCG was shown to increase the expression of skin’s natural moisturizing factor-related genes, among other activities. In addition, its antioxidant activity helped to prevent radical-evoked apoptosis (cell death) and it reduced melanin secretion.

The study results suggest that EGCG could be used as a cosmetic ingredient for skin hydration, moisture retention and the prevention of wrinkle formation. Our customers are on to something as they already rave about the results they are seeing upon using our Bespoke Vitamin C Serum (which contains green tea extract along with L-ascorbic acid and other skin beneficial ingredients). Given these latest results, it’s not surprising at all!

Grapefruit Ginger Natural Deodorant Roll-On
Mellisa Herlache (Suamico, US)
Didn’t work for me.

I couldn’t get past the scent of the Grapefruit Ginger deodorant. It’s definitely not detox- I’ve been exclusively using natural deodorant for almost 2 years. However, customer service was amazing. They reached out to me and refunded me my purchase cost. Really wish it would’ve worked for me but worth a try for others, especially since they stand by their satisfaction guarantee.

Dear Mellisa,

We're so sorry to hear that our deodorant doesn't work for you. All Apothekari products come with 100% money-back guarantee. Someone from our customer service team will be in touch to help resolve this issue.

Bespoke Vitamin C 15% Serum
Allison H. (North Vancouver, CA)
Nice glow

I use it every other day and have no sensitivity issues with this product. A lot of other products can give me acne if they're too thick/creamy or they bother my skin if they have a strong perfume scent. The only downside is it can be hard to use up before the expiry date, but I have learned to keep half the bottle in the fridge to make it last a bit longer. I will keep buying this product in the future.

I was never able to use a retinal cream before. My skin was just too sensitive. This is a really nice product 👍🏻
