With black tea body scrubs and green tea toners, consumers have been making the most of tea-infused skincare products for years. While consumers are familiar with the benefits of soothing chamomile and antioxidant-rich matcha, purple tea is also beginning to be introduced into personal care products as well.
One of the newest products from Shea Terra Organics is the Kigelia Purple Tea Peptide Face Serum Age Defense, which boasts anti-aging and antioxidant properties. The product is powered by all-natural peptides, Kigelia Africana (also known as the "sausage fruit") and purple tea sourced from Kenya’s volcanic mountains.
The brand notes that "unlike green tea, purple tea contains anthocyanin, which causes the coloration of healthy fruits such as blueberries. Purple tea also provides skin an infusion of free radical-fighting antioxidants."
