We all know by now that vitamin C can brighten your skin, and hyaluronic acid can plump—but what about algae, indigo, or camellia oil? Today, we’re highlighting four surprising ingredients from skincare brand Tatcha that might just solve all your complexion woes. Keep scrolling to see what they are!
Camellia oil is obtained by cold pressing seeds of the Camellia japonica flower. It’s a rich source of omega-y fatty acids and polyphenol antioxidants (powerhouse anti-agers!), as well as an amazing skin emollient. It’s light enough to not clog your pores, will help your skin maintain its natural moisture barrier, and enhance cell growth. Try Tatcha’s mineral oil-free One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil ($48) or the multi-tasking Camellia Beauty Oil ($95) for soft, hydrated skin.
Who knew this denim-dyer could be the cure to dry, irritated, and sensitive skin? According to legend, Japan’s noble Samurai used to wear a layer of indigo-dyed cotton underneath their armor to help heal injuries during the Edo Period. Studies have shown that indigo is effective in treating a wide array of skin irritation, like psoriasis. Tatcha’s Indigo line features a Soothing Renewal Treatment ($98), Soothing Silk Hand Cream ($38), and Soothing Silk Body Butter ($48).
Rice enzyme powder is a natural, gentle exfoliator that sloughs away dead skin cells and leaves your skin looking refreshed and renewed. Perfect for those with sensitive skin! Try Tatcha’s Rice Enzyme Powder ($65), available in Gentle, Classic, and Deep, depending on the level of exfoliation you want.
Ariel had the right idea—studies have shown that the sea ingredient makes an amazing natural moisturizer that improves your skin’s barrier function, and can even provide anti-acne relief. Tatcha’s best-selling Deep Hydration Revitalizing Eye Masks ($12) are made with Okinawa Red Algae to plump, brighten, and hydrate your eye area.
