Matcha is finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea leaves. It is special in two aspects of farming and processing: the green tea plants for matcha are shade-grown for about three weeks before harvest and the stems and veins are removed in processing. During shaded growth, the plant Camellia sinensis produces more theanine and caffeine (Wikipedia.)

Benefits of a Salt Scrub
Sea salts and Epsom salts, or magnesium sulfate, both commonly used in the beauty industry, contain minerals that can help to enhance the skin. Sea salt comes from evaporated seawater and is loaded with beneficial minerals. When mixed with coconut and rosehip oil, salt can breathe new life into tired skin. Coconut oil is a heavier oil and is used with this scrub because salt can sometimes dry the skin.
