White Tea Found To Be A Superstar At Preventing Skin Aging

September 1, 2009: 11:21 AM EST
Certain enzymes in the skin break down collagen, the protein that gives skin its elasticity. In a recent study of plant extracts from 23 species, the activity of enzymes collagenase and elastase was inhibited by extracts from a surprising source. White tea showed an extraordinary ability to combat both collagenase and elastase. Researchers concluded that white tea’s inhibitive activity reduces the risks of arthritic inflammation, some cancers, and wrinkles. One skin care company says it will use the findings to enhance its product lines.
