Curcuminiods are extracted from Tumeric for their antioxidant and anti-irritation properties. In addition, tetrahydrocurcuminoids are commonly used in combination with other actives to reduce the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin tone.
How to use it
Advanced: This ingredient is recommened for use at up to 0.5% in formulations. We recommend dissolving this ingredient in an oil, ester, or PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil before adding to creams to avoid a gritty texture. Creams can only handle a finite amount of additional oil, so make your solution with a smaller amount of additional oil/solvent (1-2%). This solution can then be added to a cream at room temperature. When making an emulsion, you can add the tetrahydrocurcuminoids to the heated oil phase.
