The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Range

The Body Shop are soon to be introducing a new collection of products to their already vast selection: the Fuji Green Tea range.

It is inspired by the use of green tea in bathing to detoxify the skin, something that Japanese women have been doing for generations.
The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Range
"We all know that green tea has antioxidant qualities. With its detoxifying health benefits, green tea has been revered for over 400 years in social and cultural activities, including the Japanese Tea Ceremony.

But did you know that some Japanese women apply it to their skin and bathe in it? It’s a skincare secret that’s been part of beauty regimes for generations, believed to help retain moisture and tighten pores.

We’ve taken this knowledge a step further, creating Fuji Green Tea™ range, the first body range infused with real green tea leaves and their benefits. We’ve been picky though, quite literally. Our green tea comes from the heartland of Japan, the pristine Mount Fuji region. Here, our experts hand-pick the finest shoots to capture the potent antioxidant power. We infuse this in to our range to replenish and refresh with pure moisture for healthier-feeling skin." (Source - The Body Shop  Fuji Green Tea range press release)

For extra post-bath/shower freshness, The Body Shop have created a Fuji  Green Tea Eau de Cologne
