Lecithin can be used pure around the eye area to help with reduction of fatty deposits. We have added a small amount of rosehip seed oil to make it easier to use in this way.

Lecithin is frequently used in many retail brands.

Lecithin is a mixture of polar and nonpolar lipids with a polar lipid content of at least 50% from soybean (egg-yolk can also be used). The most important chemical in lecithin is phosphatidylcholine, and lecithin is often used as a synonym for phosphatidylcholine. Lecithin is used in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics because of its amphiphilic structure. One extreme of the molecule has affinity for water and the other for non-polar molecules like oil, making Lecithin an emulsifier. They are also used to make liposomes, which are essentially large drops of phospholipids enclosing non-polar, oily molecules (like vitamin E), giving them a suitable environment and keeping water out.

Each jar is enough for 64 fl oz of cream or lotion at approximately 0.5% concentration (15 g in 1920 mL cream), so you could add approximately 1 g to 4 fl oz of cream. Use in your favorite cream or add to our Canvas Base Cream or ourSea Kelp Coral.

It is also safe to be used pure or in higher concentration. The limiting factor in mixing is its color and thick consistency.

    been using it a week and there are very promising results - using it for bags and fat deposits around eyes - much reduced already

    I have pretty big bags under my eyes for a 36 year old. It's hereditary, so I thought there would be nothing I could do to get rid of them. After only one application of Lecithin, I looked in the mirror first thing in the morning & was shocked to find my bags significantly reduced! I used it full strength over my eye cream & rubbed it in for about 30 seconds. All I can say is THANK YOU!! I'm definitely going to keep using this product - I couldn't be happier!
