Tea extract is one of the most widely used types of plant extracts in recent years, mainly due to its diversification of active ingredients, which are not only used in the well-known cosmetic field, but also in the food field. In which fields is it frequently used, and in what form is it used?
1. Skin protectant containing tea extract
Substances such as tea polyphenols have a strong antioxidant capacity, and their ability to scavenge active oxygen free radicals is stronger than vitamin C and vitamin E, which has the effect of reducing skin aging. The application of tea extract containing tea polyphenols in skin protectants can not only delay skin aging but also is a natural antioxidant.
2. Bath daily chemical products containing tea extract
The tea polyphenols and tannins in the tea extract can denature protein precipitation, and thus have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. At the same time, tea polyphenols and other flavonoids also have strong adsorption capacity, and many studies have confirmed that tea extracts have deodorizing effects. Now there are air deodorants containing tea extracts and various daily products such as toothpaste, soap, and talcum powder containing tea extracts on the market.
3. Sunscreen products containing tea extract
Tea polyphenols in tea extracts are sensitive to ultraviolet rays, and especially have strong absorption peaks for ultraviolet rays with a wavelength of 2000-3300 angstroms that cause solar dermatitis.
4. Use natural tea pigments as colorants
Green, red, brown, yellow, brown, and other pigments can be obtained from tea leaves through different extraction methods. These pigments can be used as colorants for food and candy, as well as for the production of cosmetic lipsticks and hair dyes.
