So...what is this green stuff? 

Babe, I'm going to assume you know about the goodness of green tea, but have you heard of matcha? If not, your life will never be the same again. If you have, your awesome and matcha waiting for? 

Simply put, matcha is the centuries old, powerhouse version of green tea. Its 100% pure green tea leaves stone ground into a fine powder and packs a mean punch. Matcha contains up to 137x the antioxidant power of green tea and has the nutritional value of about 10 cups of regular green tea. Also, these fine matcha particles penetrate through the skin to deliver serious results.

Detoxes your body. The high levels of chlorophyl (what makes it so green) helps to draw toxins, heavy metals, and bacteria out of your body. Leaves you with clearer skin. 

Fights skin ageing. Matcha contains the super antioxidant EGCg which makes up 60% of the catechins found in matcha. A free-radical superhero it prevents wrinkles, stops sun damage, reduces inflammation and helps to tone and tighten skin. 

Combats skin irritation. Rosacea, eczema, sandfly bites - the calming effect of matcha helps to ease inflammation and the antibacterial properties clear up blocked pores.
