Why bathe in green tea?
The skin is the largest organ in the human body. For the average adult human, the skin has a surface area of between 1.5-2.0 square meters (16.1-21.5 sq ft.), most of it is between 2-3 mm (0.10 inch) thick. The average square inch (6.5 cm²) of skin holds 650 sweat glands, 20 blood vessels, 60,000 melanocytes (cells that produce melanin which is a pigment) and more than a thousand nerve endings.
One of the most important functions of the skin is to provide the body with a defensive barrier from pathogens, which are agents that cause disease, and from harmful elements in the external environment, such as ultraviolet rays from the sun. The skin guards the underlying muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments and internal organs and it also protects the body from excessive water loss. Severely damaged skin repairs itself by forming scar tissue.
Skin absorption is a route by which substances can enter the body through the skin. Absorption of substances through the skin depends on a number of factors, the most important of which are concentration, duration of contact, solubility, physical condition of the skin and part of the body exposed. All the natural and beneficial ingredients in green tea make it a perfect choice for bathing in it so the nutrients may be absorbed through the skin.
