How did you come up with the idea of creating your Magic Matcha – Green Tea Superfood Masque?
Launching a new product is such an exciting moment, especially one that I’ve been working on for so many years! I think it's been five years since I started thinking about developing this masque! In fact, ever since the launch of my Just Add Sugar – Cacao Herb Infused Masque I wanted to create an alternative as not everyone has been able to embrace the powerful cacao scent.
As with every product the most important thing, is that I am creating a product that delivers exceptional results while honoring our sustainability practices. From sourcing responsible ingredients to choosing glass packaging and every decision in between.
The cornerstone ingredient for this masque is of course Matcha green tea. Matcha Green Tea is packed with antioxidants (polyphenols). Polyphenols have an anti-inflammatory effect that have several benefits for the skin; it promotes wound healing and protects cells against harmful external influences. Calendula helps take it to a more calming and cooler state along with Cucumber, creating this magical product that everyone can use.
When my partner and I were doing the final tweaks to the masque we were in our lab from 8pm until 2 am, determined to get it right. After applying the masque several times during that night, we looked at each other the next day with only four hours of sleep and were both so impressed with how our skin looked…smoother, brighter and more alive!
What has been the feedback so far?
Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, we’ve seen improvement in tone, texture, brightness and more! My clients love the smell and want to drink it!
Someone said it feels like I am doing something nice for myself! The significant shift that everyone notices is that it reverses environmental damage. The skin instantly feels nourished, cool and calm after using the masque reducing sunspots and irritation from being outside all day.
Using green tea topically has so many benefits, not only does it boost your skins’ immune system it also leads to a brighter complexion and helps prevent acne and pigmentation. Your skin looks younger, softer and more supple after regular use.
Who can use this masque?
Everyone can use it, it’s very friendly and soft for all skin types – especially those that are more red or sensitive – ingredients like Cucumber, Celery Root, Green Tea, and Calendula are all very anti-inflammatory and act like a healthy smoothie for your skin!
Where are you sourcing the ingredients?
The Cucumber Fruit Essence comes from a farm in Ventura, the Calendula and Celery Root come from a beauty crop in Oregon and the Matcha is always organically, and sustainability sourced.
Is it a multifunctional product?
You could mix it with an exfoliator to get an even deeper, brighter cleanse or you could massage either Be Calm - Brightening C Serum or Transform Niacin Serum into your skin before applying the masque for a more lifting, toning, and brightening effect.
More about Green Tea, should we be drinking it everyday?
Yes, absolutely! Drinking a few cups of green tea a day is ideal. Green tea reduces the risk of several diseases (such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer). It is SO good for our heart and skin. Green tea is rich in polyphenols that reduce inflammation and can fight cancer. It also contains Catechins which is a natural antioxidant that helps prevent cell damage.
