Caffeine decreases the risk of skin cancer promoted by UV irradiation.

Though caffeine is the primary component of this active, other beneficial chemicals found in green tea extract do remain.

This green tea extract is standardized for caffeine, meaning it has been enriched to ensure a very high concentration of this particular chemical. This efficient scavenger of hydroxyl radicals provides strong antioxidant properties to any recipe.

Caffeine decreases the risk of skin cancer promoted by UV irradiation; apparently by slowing down repair of DNA mutations caused by UV making it more precise and preventing mutations that may lead to cancer.  Caffeine also decreases the thickness of subcutaneous fat layer by inducing lipolysis.

Other beneficial effects of caffeine are analgesia, antiviral, antidermatitis, antioxidant.  The “de-puffing” effect of caffeine may be mediated by the promotion of sodium export from the cell, which is followed by water loss.

Each tube is enough for 20 fl oz of cream or lotion at approximately 1% concentration (5 g in 600 mL cream). Use in your favorite cream or add to our Canvas Base Cream or a Sea Kelp base.

The powder will not dissolve immediately but will release components slowly into the cream/lotion.

    this really helped the puffiness of my eyes. i have allergies, and my under-eyes swell up terribly, making me look much older. i added this and some of the Depuff serum to a serum i already had, and the difference is incredible.
    i use the Bright I at night to make sure there is no over night swelling, and this in the day. i look at least five to eight years younger than i did before.
    very happy with this. it is so inexpensive that it has to be worth a try if you have puffy eyes at all.
