A recent study appearing in the Archive of Dermatology revealed that green tea has been shown to inhibit inflammation and cancer in the skin. The study revealed “green tea polyphenols were found to afford protection against chemical carcinogenesis as well as photocarcinogenesis in mouse skin.” The report states that a few experimental studies were conducted with human skin. While green tea has revealed its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anticarcinogenic properties in the lab, researchers caution consumers that little is known about the restorative and protective measures in current skin-care products sold in grocery and department stores, as they are unlikely to “have been tested in controlled clinical trials.” Yet, their scientific findings are encouraging. “Although more clinical studies are needed, supplementation of skin care products with green tea may have a profound impact on various skin disorders in the years to come.”
