SPF 50 Matcha Green Tea and Mango Butter Mineral Sunscreen

Soften, moisturize, rejuvenate and protect skin with Biochemica® Matcha Green Tea Butter combined with Biochemica® Mango Butter.

This formulation, which can easily be customized in natural butters and oils, provides SPF 50 performance, as well as being water resistant and preservative free. In vitro analysis validated performance of SPF ~55 and PFA (PPD) ~18, with critical wavelength 378 nm.

For centuries, matcha green tea has been valued for use in cosmetics and toiletries due to its high content of polyphenols, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg) and xanthines. Xanthines present in matcha, such as caffeine and theobromine, have natural anti-inflammatory, anti-cellulite and anti-irritancy benefits. Green tea is also known to protect the skin from aging and serious damage from the sun’s UVB rays.

Mango butter may be used to address cutaneous dryness after skin exposure to sun and other harsh elements. Clinical testing of Biochemica® Mango Butter in formulae for very dry skin indicates superior moisturizing performance.
