Unilever owned Pukka Herbs is launching a new line of teas in France that, it said, will help “replenish vitamins and nourish skin”.
Tumeric Gold offers the “protection” of turmeric and green tea, helping to promote a “radiant complexion and natural well-being”. Pukka noted that turmeric is rich in antioxidants, while green tea is rich in polyphenols and antioxidants for cellular protection. The infusion also includes lemon, which is high in vitamin C and acts as a detoxifier.
Pukka claimed its second variety, Purify, is “ideal to restore radiance to your skin, while purifying your body”. It contains nettle, which is rich in chlorophyll helps clean the blood. Fennel seeds and peppermint are aids to digestion while the group suggested aloe vera powder “refreshes and repairs” the skin.
Finally, Pukka said its blackcurrant variety helps promote the “perfect internal-external balance”. The fruit infusion is made up of blackcurrant – which contains antioxidant anthocyanin – while orange and rosehip zests contain flavonoids and vitamin C to “stimulate collagen production” and protect the skin from external damage. Finally Beet provides iron and vitamins A and C.
The teas will be available in Greenweez, Naturalforme, Naturalia and specialist organic stores for a recommended retail price of €3.99.
