Green Tea Botanical Extract
Green Tea is a powerful antioxidant and is rich in catechin polyphenols. Green Tea is reputed to help reduce wrinkling, leathering and premature skin aging.
Usage: 0.5 - 2%. If making a solution it is recommended that 1 part extract be dissolved in 10 parts of distilled water.
For shampoos, creams, and other thick products: Mix extract with a small amount of hot water (45˚C – 50˚C) until it dissolves and then add it to the final product in the cool down phase.
Products that are almost entirely water (mists, toners, etc): There is no need to dissolve the extract before adding it to the product.
INCI: Camellia sinensis
