Green Coffee(Latin: Coffea Arabica)
Green coffee beans are rich in polyphenols, which demonstrate strong anti-oxidant properties. Polyphenols can prevent skin sun damage by blocking the activity of metalloprotienases (enzymes responsible for collagen degradation). Green coffee also has firming properties as it stimulates the production of collagen. Recent findings show that green coffee prevents skin dryness by increasing the levels of aquaporin (molecules responsible for skin moisture). Multiple functions of this plant are the reason why we included it in Zelens formulations.
