Green tea has been used as a gentle yet powerful antioxidant that's suitable for all skin types, which makes it a great alternative to potentially sensitive-skin-irritating vitamin C. Matcha is made from the entire leaf, basically pulverized green tea. It contains catechins, a natural polyphenol, which makes it a powerful antioxidant. The catechins trap and inactivate free radicals in the skin, thus decreasing many of the signs of aging. The powder form is much more concentrated than the liquid form we drink.
Matcha tea is an amazing anti-inflammatory agent, so it helps treat rosacea and even acne. Applying matcha directly to the skin, like in the form of a mask, is really effective to reduce redness and irritation.
Our clay are prepared from fine clays that are harvested from the earth and tossed with our exclusive blend of ground organic flower buds. This clay is rich in minerals such as iron, sodium, calcium, potassium and magnesium. Clay helps to detox and clarify. Adding water to the clay gives it a negative electric charge, then applied to the skin's surface, its molecules become charged and draw out toxins from beneath the skin.

Made by certified bee farms, the alchemy of bees collecting nectar, pollen, and resins from flowers, honey can help moisturize, fight aging, and fight bacteria. Plus, it’s loaded with nutrients, antioxidants, and healing compounds. Honey is also a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the air into the skin and ensures it's retained it in the layers where it’s needed most for penetrating, long-lasting hydration.
