Spirulina + Moringa + Matcha = The Vegan Super Green Paste For Your Face & Body
Could This 3-in-1 Combination Be The “Holy Grail” of skincare?
Spirulina, Moringa & Matcha Green Tea are all amazing superfoods. Think about combining them in one skincare product … This Super Green Paste might just the body care “Holy Grail” of all superfoods!
Not all spirulina is created equal
Our Spirulina is a powder derived from Bali local algae that are high in protein, iron, vitamins, and 18 different amino acids — true superfood indeed! Its rich, dark-green color comes from chlorophyll, which helps to eliminate toxins from our body, support vibrant skin (especially when used as a soothing spirulina face mask), and boosts our immune system—all at the same time.
This Spirulina Face Mask Has Amazing Benefits
Using Spirulina as a Face Mask can boost your skin’s overall health and radiant appearance, as well as prevent acne build-up and swelling. Rich in nutrients, vitamins, and both fatty and amino acids, Spirulina decreases inflammation, tones the skin and encourages cell turnover to promote a more youthful-looking complexion.
As with many superfood skincare ingredients, Spirulina also works wonders on dull and congested skin as it gently detoxifies and encourages cell renewal. By encouraging the shedding of dead skin cells, it helps to maintain a healthy, lit-from-within glow.
IS ALL SPIRULINA CREATED EQUAL?
Absolutely not! In fact, the quality of spirulina can vary dramatically. Since spirulina is a water plant, the quality and purity of the water used in cultivation and the surrounding location also play a big part in the quality of the spirulina.
Is your spirulina grown in potable freshwater with clean air, or in a potentially dirty reservoir or river water in a polluted environment?
The quality of the environment that spirulina grows in is VERY important, but the care shouldn’t stop once it’s ready for harvest. Spirulina is sensitive to heat, oxygen, and light so when drying spirulina, it should be dried quickly at a low temperature with minimal levels of oxygen present to help preserve the nutrients and enzymes. Plastic bottles can be porous and let damaging oxygen in so high-quality spirulina will normally be packed in glass jars.
Moringa Can Minimise Breakouts, Wrinkles, And Guard Against Pollution
Moringa is known as the “miracle tree” for its nutritional values. It’s good news for those with problem skin because moringa is filled with vitamin A, and it’s one of the most potent vitamins out there for near-perfect skin.
When applied topically, it encourages the skin cells to renew themselves at lightning speed, helping to limit pesky breakouts, blur blemishes and pigmentation, and iron fine lines into oblivion.
Flawless complexion, here we come.
Here are 7 Skin Benefits When Using Moringa In Our Nourishing Green Face Mask:
1. Enhance Collagen Production
The abundance of Vitamin A combined with Moringa’s rich amino acid profile provides powerful collagen production, giving our skin strength and elasticity and replaces dead skin cells. The body’s natural collagen production slows down as we age so it’s important to get it from a natural external source such as Moringa.
Moringa’s rich source of antioxidants helps slow down the anti-aging process and the degeneration of skin cells by scavenging and quenching free radicals. Plus, Vitamin A is essential for reducing wrinkles.
3. Hydrating & PH Balancing
The active amino acid properties promote healthy cells that hydrate the skin and balance the skin’s PH levels.
4. Diminishes Bruises and Blemishes
Moringa is abundant in anti-inflammatories which makes skin healthier and protects it from irritation.
5. Detoxes Skin Layers
The purifying properties of Moringa, which can purify dirty water into healthy purified water have the same effect on your skin, allowing for a natural and safe detox that filters toxins within skin layers.
6. Helps with Acne
Moringa is considered a powerful herb to fight acne due to its antiseptic properties. It is a great source to fight acne, which is mostly caused by bacterial infections.
7. Protects Against Sun Damage
Beta Carotene found in Moringa effectively protects skin against the damaging effects of the sun.
III. MATCHA GREEN TEA
Matcha is made from tencha tea, which is a type of green tea. The leaves were kept in the shade and steamed before the grinding process.
Matcha contains chlorophyll, which is a natural anti-bacterial. Not only it removes excess oils from your skin, but it also helps eliminate bacteria that cause acne. Its soothing coolness can help reduce redness from rosacea, acne, and other skin condition. Other benefits include quenches inflammation and even complexion.
Since it’s a type of green tea, the potent antioxidant property offers 20 times the free radical scavenging effects of vitamin E, which protects skin against pollution, sun damage, prevents skin cancer, environmental stress, and cellulite.
5 Amazing Skin Benefits You Get From Matcha When Using Our Nourishing Green Face Mask:
2. Pre-mature Aging
The EGCG found potently in green tea is a very powerful free-radical scavenger. It helps neutralize them which reduces oxidative stress which can accelerate cellular aging. When used topically, the caffeine in green tea can energize the skin and promote skin firmness over time.
3. Clear Complexion
Matcha contains methylxanthines which have been shown to help stimulate microcirculation in the skin which not only helps promote healthy, radiant skin, but it helps support an even + healthy complexion too!
4. Protects Against Sun Damage & Environmental Stress
The polyphenols in green tea have been confirmed in studies to help protect the skin from the damaging effects of UV rays. They help act as a protectant against the stress of environmental pollution as well.
5. Fights Hormonal Acne
Hormonal acne is often influenced by stress and excess androgen hormones that cause the sebaceous glands to produce higher amounts of sebum. Matcha helps tackle this on both levels as it helps combat stress (both oxidative stress caused by free radicals and emotionally by calming down the nervous system). It also contains Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which is anti-androgenic – so if your androgen hormones are on the high side, matcha can help to reduce it.
