Standardization: 17.6% Polyphenols
Green Tea Liquid Extract – Standardized is a liquid blend of Green Tea Extract and Propanediol.
Green Tea Liquid Extract is standardized for Polyphenols (17.6%). The active constituents in Green Tea are the polyphenols known as catechins, which are known to be potent antioxidants that help diminish the signs of aging. Their skin-soothing properties help to cool irritated skin, alleviate and prevent damage caused by dryness, and improve the skin’s elasticity and suppleness. Furthermore, catechins even out discoloration, reduce the appearance of cellulite, eliminate dead skin through exfoliation, cleanse the skin by removing dirt, bacteria, and other pollutants on the surface, reduce the appearance of dark circles, and support skin and hair health by protecting against the damaging effects of environmental factors.
With a plant-based origin, Propanediol is a biodegradable and petrochemical-free solvent, making it an excellent corn sugar-derived alternative to petroleum-based Glycols for hair- and skincare formulations. It offers benefits and functionalities that include improved emollience, enhanced viscosity, non-irritating properties, exceptional sensory characteristics, clarity, and anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, among many more.
