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.

Bespoke Vitamin C Serum

I love it! Been using it for years. It’s so perfect to put on right after I wash in the morning. I’ve never been the greatest at sticking to a skin care routine but using the Vitamin C in the morning and A is for Anti-aging at night consistently over the years has kept my skin young and firm.
Would not want to imagine life (or my skin) without these two essentials. Thank you Sharmani!

Pricing per bottle is definitely up there, but I think much like skincare, if you have struggled to find a deodorant that works for you, the price won't be as much of an issue because something like this can have a huge impact on your life. One bottle should last about 3-4 months with daily use which I think is fairly close to most deodorants. While I know there are baking soda-free options (baking soda can cause skin irritations due to pH disruptions) and options that use Deoplex, I have yet to find a combination of Deoplex and lactic acid which may be what's working for me. Honestly, the only thing I didn't enjoy was that "wet" feeling when I would first apply it, but after 15 seconds it dries down AND it doesn't stain clothing so that's a huge plus. Even though I received this as a press sample, I would buy this deodorant on my own as I didn't just smell good at the end of a long day, but I smelled like absolutely NOTHING which is WAY better to me than smelling like "I'm covering something up" or like body odour. I also trust and appreciate the research I know Apothekari has invested into making sure the formulation is scientifically sound so I know that's also partly where my dollars are going. I only need to apply once a day and I'm good to go so one bottle might even last more more than 4 months at the rate I'm going! HIGHLY recommend and even though all three scents had the same results, my preferred scent was the Lavender as it just one of my favourite scents overall!

Your deodorant is actually miraculous! I’ve tried every kind of deodorant before with varying degrees of mediocre success. Yours manages to actually work through Barre fitness classes and in my office otherwise called the boiler room!! I will definitely be buying more.

I love, love, love Apothekari deodorant! I am allergic to anti-perspirants. I have spent years trying to find a product that works, especially in the hot climate here in Arizona. This deodorant not only works, but keeps me fresh and odor free for over 24 hours! The grapefruit ginger fragrance is lovely and subtle. Thank you, thank you!

I am absolutely IN LOVE with Apothekari! A is for Anti-Aging Retinol Serum has changed my skin. I suffered from adult acne and I have not had a single pimple since I started using this Ah-mazing serum. Not to mention how firm and bright my skin is. And Made in Canada! It’s the whole package!
