African Red Tea! You'll find it in Ole Henriksen!
I've had so many questions about African Red Tea lately that I thought I ought to dedicate a blog entry to it so we can all understand it a little bit better. As well as learn about why its important to incorporate it into our skin care regimens.
African red tea has many anti-aging properties as well as many other health benefits. Obviously, in skin care products it’s used for anti-aging purposes as well as other unique benefits for beautiful, healthy skin. It’s said to be caffeine free and is very low in tannic acid. From what I gather being caffeine free allows its antioxidant properties to be more potent. The beneficial attributes when the red tea is formulated into skin care products are its rejuvenating, healing and repairing properties as well as being an excellent anti-oxidant prevention vehicle of further free radical damage. The tea (which has also been referred to as Roobios) contains calcium, potassium, iron, zinc and magnesium. It’s said to have been used by some South African tribes for the treatment of eczema.
Ole Henriksen is an excellent brand which offers a whole line of African Red Tea skin care products.
