The combination of green tea and skin gets a big thumbs up! In fact, I’m such a big fan of its benefits that we have recently added green tea extract to our Bespoke Vitamin C Serums.



Green tea contains a number of beneficial micronutrients including the potent antioxidant Epigallocatechin-3-gallate. Let’s just call it EGCG, shall we?

When it comes to green tea and skin, the benefits can’t be downplayed. This valuable ingredient contains polyphenols, nutrients with antioxidant activity, that are also found in dried spices, fruits, vegetables, red wine and cocoa. EGCG is the polyphenol we are most interested in when it comes to skin care because it is backed by the most clinical research to support its health benefits. Although the research is limited, it’s thought that tea (white and green in particular) can increase the antioxidant capacity of tissues, especially the blood, and that it can improve the lipid profile, due to its impact on LDL, or bad cholesterol.

Green Tea and Skin Health

A number of studies support the skin benefits of green tea, which include:

  1. Skin Cancer Protection. Studies suggest that EGCG and other green tea polyphenols are anti-inflammatory and possess anti-cancer properties that may help prevent the growth of skin tumors by reducing sun damage after UV exposure.
  2. Acne. By reducing sebum secretion, green tea may help to prevent acne.
  3. Rosacea. A small study showed an improvement in redness and capillary involvement in individuals with rosacea although more research is warranted.
  4. Wrinkles and Other Signs of Aging. Due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action, topical green tea extract is likely to help slow the development of some signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines.

If you’re looking to optimize your skin care routine, adding a comprehensive antioxidant formulation is a must. Layer it on in the morning under your sunscreen to help protect against UV damage and pollution. Our Bespoke Vitamin C Serum contains L-ascorbic acid, green tea extract (EGCG) and an arsenal of other highly effective antioxidants to ensure that your skin benefits from this potent combination.

I'm loving this deodorant from Apothekari! I'm very skeptical about natural deodorants because I perspire a lot and had always used antiperspirants. Wanting to go more natural, I've tried a few natural deodorants and this is by far the best. I can apply in the a.m., go overnight, and work out the next a.m. without having to reapply. I also love the smell. I have scent sensitivities and this citrus-ginger mix doesn't bother me at all. Super-happy with my purchase.

My recent order of apothecary

I’m so pleased with my products! My skin is already more radiant, pores are tighter !

Great deodorant!

I’ve tried many natural deodorants with mixed results. The Apothekari deodorant works GREAT, even when doing intense workouts. I also like the scent of all of the products. The skin of my underarms seems to have improved texture as well. I will definitely repurchase.

It works wonders! But strong scent...

This is the first and only natural deodorant that has kept me fresh for more than 6 hours. I put it on at night after my shower and it keeps me Oder free for around 12 hours. LUMÉ couldn’t do that for me! I wouldn’t buy this particular scent again though, I thought it would have a nice balance between the Neroli and Rose, but I cannot smell Rose at all - in my opinion it comes off smelling very manly. Next time I will order the lavender and bergamot scent.

The deodorant is great, gently shake and roll on. It’s very watery so I rub my arms back and forth to get it applied everywhere and then wait for a second in front of the fan before putting on a shirt. But it sooo worth it!!! Amazing deodorant and no rashes! My skin feels healthy. I have been using it for about a month.

Game Changer!

I've tried prescriptions and other products that claim to help with vaginal dryness and none compare to this product. So natural and no added hormones or perfumes. A real game changer for me! Also BEST name for this!
