Drinking Chinese white tea (also known as camellia) is proven to help boost the immune system, while fighting free-radicals and preventing sun damage when used in skincare.
Marula Oil from southern Africa
Maurla oil is thought to help heal and hydrate skin, while also reducing redness and improving tone and texture.
