Replenix® green tea Skin Care The medicinal powers of green tea have been documented for thousands of years to cure a wide variety of ailments. In 2735 BC a leaf from the Camellia Sinensis tree blew into a cup of boiling water belonging to Chinese Emperor Shen Nung and green tea s curative effects were discovered. In modern medicine, green tea has been recognized by scientists for its unique properties since the 1960s. The Replenix® line allows patients to enjoy the benefits of green tea by applying it directly to their skin. The Replenix® line has been specially formulated with green tea to deliver an effective, easy-to-use system for cleaner, smoother, younger looking skin. Like black and oolong tea, green tea comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant. However, unlike the other two varieties, its leaves are not fermented before steaming and drying, they remain fresh. Of all of the antioxidants known, the components of green tea are the most potent. Antioxidants act to counteract the effects of free radicals, deactivating them before they cause harm. Topix Replenix® was featured in the May 2009 Real Simple magazine, 3 Steps to a (Nearly) Flawless Face (UNDER-EYE CARE).
