It is our mission here at TreeActiv to provide you with the latest and greatest products that can help you look and feel your best. That is why we strive to innovate our products from the best natural ingredients in the world. One of the most interesting new ingredients in skincare today is Matcha. Yes, you read that correctly - Matcha, like the tea.

So, What’s Up With Matcha?

Matcha is widely recognized as a tea. However, this bright emerald ingredient does even more as a health elixir. It’s gained recent popularity in the West, but Matcha has been used for centuries and its use dates back as early as the 1100’s.

This superfine powder is derived from ground tea leaves and is packed with powerful antioxidants, the most beneficial of which is called “catechin polyphenols”. In layman’s term, these polyphenols act as fire extinguishers to help put out inflammation throughout the body. Matcha is also a powerful antioxidant that helps trap and neutralize free-radicals. When applied topically to the skin, Matcha can impede the visible signs of aging. This makes it a powerhouse for anti-aging and is also an ideal ingredient to treat frustrating skin conditions, like rosacea and acne.
