Rating: I appreciate the chance to play around with green tea extract without having to pay an arm and a leg to do it. This is a great price point! Green tea is full of so many wonderful nutrients, great for skin and hair. Having said that, I find this leaves a sticky residue in everything I use it in. I strain it and still it is sticky. I find it works better in wash off products like shampoo, conditioner, body & facial washes, scrubs, etc. In lotions and toners it just feels too sticky. I use a WS green tea extract in those recipes now. The packaging drives me nuts. Plastic zip lock baggies are a pain when working with these fine powders. Yes, I could transfer to jars but I am just a small time "hobbyist" and already have a hard time affording jars for the products I make. I'm pretty sure NDA has access to low cost jars. Not a deal breaker as I still do love playing around with all the wonderful extracts they offer.

Rating: I am so excited to use this in my first batch of CP Soap!!! It's wonderful on your skin!!!
By:Christina, Columbia, South Carolina Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Jan-2013
Rating: I love this extract! I include it in all of my lotions (gives a slight tan cast to the lotion, but works wonders for the skin). I also love it in CP soap - if you add it at trace it gives a beautiful speckled effect to the soap, or it you add to the lye water it turns a beautiful chocolate brown. Also great in hair conditioner and facial toners. Thanks for this wonderful product at such a great price!

Rating: I incorporate it into highly effective clay facial masks. I can't be positive that the beneficial claims are true, but it smells great and my skin feels good, so I'm a happy customer. Very easy to use, great packaging, great price.
Rating: Absolutely amazing. I mixed it in with some clay and rose water and made a mask that cleared up any acne I had - literally in less than 2 days after using it. My skin felt softer instantly and any redness or irritation was calmed. I will definitely be buying again.

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
