  • Would a chelator be needed in these green tea extract containing formulas?

    Posted by cremedevanille on February 16, 2017 at 1:00 am

    I am under the understanding that the use of a chelator is especially important when metal sensitive ingredients such as green tea are added to a formula but my knowledge is in its infancy. I would be most appreciative if some of you kind experts could asses these four serum ingredients list and let me know if the formulas are sound as they are, or if an additional chelating agent would be essential to prevent a pro oxidation effect from the green tea and potentially other botanicals? Are there any other glaring contraindications? Thank you very kindly indeed, your responses would be much appreciated.
