Tetrahydrocurcuminoids (THC)

Tetrahydrocurcuminoids (THC) are derived from curcuminoids (extracted from the roots of curcuma longa, commonly known as turmeric root). Tetrahydrocurcuminoids are phenolic in nature, acting as antioxidants, protecting against free radicals and preventing the generation of free radicals.   Unlike yellow curcuminoids, THC is a colorless compound which can therefore be used in color free cosmetic products that currently employ conventional and synthetic antioxidants.

Curcuminoids and therefore THC offer protection to the skin and should be considered for inclusion as functional antioxidants in topical preparations. THC scavenges free radicals that are generated through exposure to ultraviolet radiation, chemicals or other environmental stress factors which age the skin. The efficacy of Curcuminoids and THC is also concentration dependent, with THC being even more effective at lower concentrations. THC also helps to improve the shelf life of topical formulations by inhibiting the autoxidation of fats by offering protection against rancidity of the fat components used in the formulation of cosmetics.
 
Tetrahydrocurcumin has been shown to efficiently inhibit tyrosinase. As such, it is an effective skin lightening agent with multi functional topical benefits.  It has been tested to determine its safety for topical use with no irritant or sensitization side effects.
 
The anti-inflammatory effects of THC combined with their efficient antioxidant action render them useful as ingredients in anti-aging formulations, skin lightening and brightening products and topical formulations designed to maintain general skin health and integrity.

Our Customers Say...
Love the new website!
Jen is such a pro when it comes to prompt & courteous customer service, plus shipping rates are as reasonable as possible these days - not like some sites that just gouge you.
I'm a small customer, but always feel that my business is valued.
Thx, Jen.

Absolute best customer service on the web! I am most impressed with the high quality packaging and array of nice products - especially the East African Shea butter which is the best shea i have used to date especially for facial care. Thanks again
Rosa

I have been ordering from your company for some time now. I absolutely love the quality and prices of your products. Plus, you don't sacrifice on quality. I am very happy to count myself as one of your customers and I will be ordering from you for years to come. Thank you so much Lotioncrafter!!
Tracy Carlin

Today is my 5th order from LotionCrafter. I really like their product. One product I ordered, the next time I purchased it from Whole Foods and I notice the difference in the quality of the product. I once placed an order and decided to change it about 2 hours later. It was to late. The order had already processed. They sell good quality products and shipment is fast. I usually don't like to pay shipping but for LotionCrafter I do because I do like their product and prices. Keep up the good work.

I LOVE Jennifer! I won't make anything without her input and council. She is very knowledgeable.
