How to use it

Beginner: Add up to 1 tube to 4 oz of your favorite base cream or water-based formula.

Advanced: This ingredient is recommended for use at up to 1% in formulations. This ingredient is soluble in glycerin, ethoxydiglycol, and water with a recommended pH range of 3-5. For best results, we recommended adding this ingredient to creams or thicker serums as sediment can form in thin products without suspension capabilities.

Quick Tips

This extract will discolor formulations over time to a reddish-brown. Store in a cool, dark location. This Green Tea EGCG is a higher grade extract standardized for 90% EGCG, which means you need less powder for your formulations. This reduces the color change effect that green tea has on your finished products.
