Botanical green tea extracts can protect hair from ultraviolet (UV) damage by reducing the formation of certain protein biomarkers, though efficacy is linked to antioxidant levels of the extract, finds a P&G funded study.
The study, published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology and funded by The Procter and Gamble Company (P&G), said research conducted by the US and UK based teams found specific antioxidant activities in green tea extract, or Camellia sinensis, protected against protein damage in hair caused by UV exposure.
