Infini'tea™ Biofunctional is inspired by neurocosmetics and the ceremonial ritual of tea to restore the homeostasis of young, fresh, and relaxed looking skin. This unique tea serum is extracted from live Camellia Sinensis leaves using proprietary Ashland™ Zeta Fraction™ technology
Dual Approach To Skin Relaxation
Ashland™ has explored two pathways, inspired by neurocosmetic science, to research the calming and soothing properties of infini’tea biofunctional
Competition of Theanine Against the Glutamate Excitotoxin
Infini’tea™ biofunctional is up to 10 times more concentrated in theanine than green or black tea. Theanine is known to act as an antagonist to glutamate found in industrial food, an excitotoxin that has been described as responsible for worsening skin problems such as eczema.
Skin Expression of
BDNF, the Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor, is shown to decrease in different inflammatory states of the skin such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis. The application of Infini’tea™ biofunctional, similarly to the practice of yoga, helps to increase the expression of this factor in the skin.

Detox The Skin - Monosodium Glutamate Excitotoxin

Yoga-Like Skin Effect - BDNF
BDNF is a major neuroplasticity regulator, which may be increased in specific regions of the brain by various interventions, like exercise and yoga. BDNF is also expressed by skin cells and is decreased in different inflammatory states of the skin (atopic dermatitis, psoriasis).

Visibly Restoring A Peaceful Balance - In Vivo Study
An in vivo study was carried out on 29 healthy volunteers (women and men) aged between 34 and 64 over a period of 6 weeks. The volunteers applied a cream containing Infini’tea™ biofunctional at 1% twice a day. The study was performed versus placebo.
Volunteers perceived improvement of skin luminosity and skin suppleness after 7 days; hydration and global appearance after 28 days. These improvements were also perceived by a trained skin expert.
