Although many people are aware of the health benefits associated with drinking green tea, not that many are aware of the properties it exhibits when used in topical skin care preparations for protecting collagen from being broken down.

Green tea is a potent anti-inflammatory agent and most importantly having an inhibitory action on collagenase, which is a collagen-reducing enzyme that breaks down collagen. In one clinical trial it was shown that the skin had measurably more elastic tissue content after continuous application of a product containing green tea.
