Our Process

We love tea. Especially organic loose-leaf tea. Hydrating and packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. We know the power tea can have in healing and rejuvenating skin. So when we took a look at “tea based” skin care products on the market, we were surprised to find almost none that contained actual tea. Just a bunch of ingredients we couldn’t pronounce, and at the very end a listing of “green tea extract.” We decided to do better.

Organic Tea Base

We hand-crafted skin care formulas that used steeped organic tea as a base, not plain water. Concentrated brews of antioxidant filled loose-leaf teas from around the world, including Chinese Green Tea, South African Rooibos, Ecuadorian Guayusa, and Argentinian Yerba-Mate, form the base of every TEA.L skin care product. Every TEA.L product contains the equivalent of 4 servings of hydrating, antioxidant-rich freshly brewed tea!

Tea Infused Oils

To pack a double-punch of skin rejuvenating antioxidants and hydration into your self-care routine, we looked for ways to infuse our oils with loose leaf tea. After dozens of tests, trials, and errors, we found the best method! We warm-infuse every oil that goes into TEA.L skin care products with the same high-quality loose-leaf teas we use for the base. Hours of steeping warm oils in loose-leaf tea infuses them with all the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that protects and rejuvenates your skin.

Airless Packaging

TEA.L products are antioxidant powerhouses. Combined with vitamins and skin-repairing extracts, the tea-based antioxidants help to repair and rejuvenate your skin and reinforce your overall health and well-being. But antioxidants begin to break down immediately in the presence of air. To maintain the antioxidant power, we use airless packaging that dispenses small amounts of our lotions without exposure to air. Airless packaging not only preserves product effectiveness, but also reduces product waste and prevents contamination from touching the product directly.

Small Batches

Ensuring quality is a priority for TEA.L. And our unique process of infusing oils and using steeped organic tea as an ingredient requires careful timing and control. That’s why all TEA.L tea-based skin care products are hand-crafted in small batches. Not only does this allow us a high degree of quality control, but it also ensures you receive a product that is fresh and powerful as part of your self-care routine.
