Green Tea is viewed today as a miracle-like natural ingredient and so it comes as no surprise that the Chinese have been using green tea for centuries to treat almost everything varying from headaches to depression. Let us begin by breaking down what is green tea. It encompasses nutrients and vitamins such as vitamin B, folate (or naturally occurring folic acid), manganese, potassium, magnesium, caffeine and other antioxidants. Moreover, it is made from the Camellia sinensis plant, where fresh leaves from the plant are steamed to produce green tea (the leaves are used as they’re richer in antioxidants in comparison to other types of tea due to the way that they’re processed). Let’s have a look into the key benefits of green tea and why we are so excited about our Mint Green Tea Soap.
Contributes to weight loss - Green tea is thought to increase metabolism. This is because the polyphenol contained in green tea strengthens the levels of fat oxidation as well as the rate at which your body converts food into calories.
Decreases blood pressure - Regular consumption of green tea can decrease the risk of high blood pressure.
Prevents tooth decay – several studies suggest that the chemical antioxidant "catechin" in tea can remove bacteria and viruses that have a tendency to cause throat infections, dental caries and other dental infections.
Suppresses depression - Theanine is an amino acid, which is contained in tea leaves. Theanine provides a relaxing and soothing effect and thus can contribute to suppressing depression.
Anti-aging - According to a recent article, “Green tea can apparently also help with wrinkles and the signs of aging, This is because of their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Both animal and human studies have demonstrated that green tea applied topically can reduce sun damage.”
“Green tea has been shown to improve blood flow and lower cholesterol. A 2013 review of many studies found green tea helped prevent a range of heart-related issues, from high blood pressure to congestive heart failure. What’s good for the heart is usually good for the brain; your brain needs healthy blood vessels, too. In one Swiss study, MRIs revealed that people who drank green tea had greater activity in the working-memory area of their brains. Green tea has also been shown to help block the formation of plaques that are linked to Alzheimer's disease. Green tea seems to help keep blood sugar stable in people with diabetes. Because catechins lower cholesterol and blood pressure, they can help protect against the damage a high-fat diet can cause."

When considering the secretive ingredients and industrious processes used to manufacture soaps, it comes as no surprise that chemically made soaps contain harmful chemicals, and questionable dyes and fragrances. In fact, when you wash your hands with chemically made soap, your skin absorbs these harmful substances, putting both your skin and your general health at considerable long term risk. This post delves into why you should consider replacing chemically produced soap with organic soap alternatives.
Chemicals and Pesticides Free - As all ingredients used in organic soaps are derived from plants and herbs, one of the greatest benefits that one can get out of using organic soap is in avoiding contact with any chemicals or pesticides. Furthermore, according to the American College of Toxicology report, high contact with chemicals like sodium laurel sulphate can cause long term skin damage. Natural soap is free of these harmful chemicals and risk free.
Gentler & Healthier on the Skin – It is no secret that many people do not respond well to chemically produced soaps. However, you can mitigate and possibly avoid skin problems that are induced by harmful chemical ingredients by switching to organic soap. This is because organic soaps do not contain ingredients like herbicides, chemical fertilizers, or pesticides.
Additionally, animal fats used in the manufacture of soaps can cause irritation in the skin due to its nature, while organic methods of manufacturing soap (made of vegetable oils instead of animal fats) protects the skin and are thereby much safer.
Effect on the Environment – For those seeking to protect our environment, natural organic based soap is the soap for you as it is completely environmentally friendly, as pesticides and chemicals are not used in the soap making process. Moreover, organic soap is significantly more biodegradable than chemically made soap, and most importantly does not contain synthetic chemicals. Lastly, according to the article “The Benefits of Organic Soap” on the Global Healing Center, “most organic soaps are cruelty-free, meaning they’re not tested on animals. Purchasing natural and organic products is better for the environment, too. Organic ingredients are grown without chemicals and pesticides, both of which can pollute the water supply, air and soil. Organic soap might not lead the charge in saving the world but it supports the fundamental effort.”More >>
