Tibetan black tea has an illustrious history spanning over a thousand years and was an important commodity for the silk road trade. Freshly plucked tea leaves are carefully treated according to a 400-year-old technique and then left to ferment for years. During fermentation, oxidized polyphenolic compounds like theaflavins and thearubigins are formed. These antioxidants exhibit various anti-aging mechanisms when used directly on the skin.
The scientific team at Quvo Lab uses a low temperature, time-dependent method to gently capture these polyphenols without affecting the integrity of the extract. This extract, named Zangcha9T, is then infused into a blend of natural plant oils like radish seed extract, abyssinian and squalane, with phytoactive bisabolol and magnolia bark to form a preservative-free, waterless serum.
