Rating: Love this stuff! I use it in my face cream and my soaps. Customers love it and it has a great woodsy colour. Great in green tea soap!

Rating: I loved the way this Green Tea extract mixed with EOs or FO into a rich dark amber paste, (the colour is different to the NDA product page photo). It has a fresh compelling fragrance of its own but I blended it with Green Tea and Pear FO and added it to NDAs Olive M&P soap base. It came out a wonderful dark amber colour. An added touch of cucumber seed oil and I think that I have got a lovely soap! I am looking forward to using the Green Tea extract with the NDA Organic soap base- I think that will be even nicer, that is 5 plus stars!

Rating: This is a wonderful product and the price is amazing. I use all my botanical extracts at 0.5% in the cool or final phase, in all my products, including shampoos, conditioners, hair masks, leave in conditioners, face and body lotions.
They are so easy to use. Just mix in warm water. I made the mistake of adding the powder in my final phase. This will not work. You need to dilute in warm water, and you absolutely need a proper scale that measures in 0.01g.

Rating: So cheap but so great ! I added it to face masks, in the tub in a scrub. Another sane product anybody should use. Avec l'environnement dans lequel nous vivons, nous avons besoin d'utiliser des antioxydants et l'extrait de thé vert est excellent. Etant donné le prix, personne ne devrait s'en passer !

Rating: Great product, use in a hot compress, very refreshing and good price!
Rating: Green Tea Extract is ideal for anyone looking to add a powerful anti-oxidant to natural bodycare products. A little does go a long way and it can be added to anything. My favorite products to add it too are the Dead Sea mud, body butter and face spritz. ND offers a great quality product at a reasonable price
