One study reveals that dying skin cells can be reactivated with polyphenol EGCG (epigallocatechin 3-gallate), a compound found in green tea. How skin cells are dying is very interesting. Skin cells embark on a migratory path from its deep inner layer through the mid layer to the surface outer layer in about 28 days. Around day 20 of its journey, they are closer to the upper layer of the skin and are getting ready to die and peel off the skin. Researchers found the introduction of EGCG into the system reactivate these cells in the upper layer by dividing and accelerating the process once again.
This is good news for people who are suffering from psoriasis, rosacea, aphthous ulcers, wounds and wrinkles. They all can benefit from EGCG and EGCG based therapy can prevent them happening. This is especially beneficial for people with diabetes that are unable to heal their wounds due to the condition. Those who are taking anti-aging products may want to try drinking green tea to get enough EGCG to wipeout wrinkles. Cellan contains 100 green tea extract that is full of EGCG.
