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.

Ordered the argan oil several months ago. This product is amazing!..and I'm ordering more. I have below the shoulder relaxed hair thats fairly healthy so I didn't think I would see such a dramatic result. My hair texture is now more silky and stronger! Ordering is fast and easy, customer service is great!!! Can't thank you enough!
