There are different grades of matcha, and not all of them are for drinking purposes. As a matcha supplier, Ikeda Tea World offers high-quality industrial grade matcha which can be combined with other ingredients to produce beauty products, dietary supplements and so much more. Industrial grade matcha has the high antioxidant qualities of premium grade matcha, it contains 6.2 times more antioxidants than Gogi berries, 7 times more than dark chocolate, and 60.5 times more than spinach!
Industrial grade matcha is a useful addition to vitamins and dietary supplements because it’s rich in caffeine and L-Theanine, an amino acid known for stimulating concentration, relaxation, and alertness, a magic combo that provides sustained and focused energy. Industrial grade matcha also boosts metabolism, contains vitamins, minerals and EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), an antioxidant related to weight loss and fat burn. It’s no surprise that the wellness industry is using matcha in the production of protein powders, bars, matcha collagen or even matcha bears and matcha energy chews.
When it comes to your skin, using matcha green tea as an ingredient makes any product even more effective and attractive. Matcha green tea leaves are grown in shaded areas, a process that increases the amount of chlorophyll in them. Chlorophyll works as a natural detox that eliminates harmful toxins and can repair and rejuvenate skin cells. Matcha benefits include protection from harmful UV rays, wrinkle prevention and even fighting against acne.
Matcha is also packed with catechins, strong antioxidants that protect the body from environmental free radicals. They lighten dark spots, even skin tone, and produce a healthy, younger looking skin. No wonder matcha beauty products are taking the skin care market by storm! You can find a wide range of products that include matcha in their ingredient list, from matcha cleansers, moisturizers, toners, anti-aging serums, to plenty of DYI recipes for your own matcha facial mask or matcha body scrub.
