The words "matcha" and "cream" together bring to mind Japanese sweets but in the case of Uji Matcha Cream, Japan's green tea is not bringing its unique flavor (although it does offer its characteristic fragrance) but rather its health benefits to create a cream that moisturizes and rejuvenates the skin of not just your face but your whole body as well! And this comes from Wamuu, a shop that sells tea-related products in the heart of Japan's most famous tea-producing area, Uji near Kyoto!
Other than the powdered matcha green tea, whose catechins offer both moisturizing and antioxidant effects, the other main component in Wamuu's Uji Matcha Cream is horse oil, which, thanks to its similarity to human fat, penetrates fast the epidermal layer and stimulates blood flow, absorbing and trapping bacteria. And to top things off, it also contains vitamins A and E and several plant extracts, including arnica flower, cucumber fruit, ivy leaf/stem, and mallow, each of which has different benefits for your skin. Available in 10 g (0.4 oz) and 30 g (1 oz) jars to better suit your needs!
