Tea Forté Inc. launched its new line of Tea Forté Skin-Smart Teas, developed to promote healthy skin from within, the company says. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) organic and Fair Trade certified teas are blended to further the detoxifying effect of polyphenols to fight the visible signs of skin aging, the company adds. The teas carry Brunswick Lab's ORAC seal, a testing method developed by the USDA and Tufts University to quantifiably measure the potency of antioxidants found in foods and beverages that protect cells and their components from damage by oxidative stress, a major factor in the progression of aging, the company says. The tea collection is packaged with 16-count filter bags that have a suggested retail price of $5.95 and includes the following varieties: Cucumber Mint with Green Tea for Youth Recovery, Honey Yuzu with Green Tea for Natural Renewal, Cherry Marzipan with Green Tea for Corrective Repair, Swiss Apple with Red Tea for Skin Support and Lychee Coconut with White Tea for Radiant Skin.
