Tazman (Pepper) Berry is an extract from the Tasmanian Pepper, a black-ish purple berry that grows in the mountains of Australia. It is a very enduring species that tolerates cold winds and thrives on rocks and in harsh elements. It also has anti-allergenic properties which are really helpful, especially in this spring weather where allergies are their highest.
Tazman Berry Pepper contains Polygodial, a powerful active anti-inflammatory ingredient that reduces vasodilation and oedema to soothe the skin. It also has anti-allergenic and antimicrobial properties. This berry also contains Anthocyanins, which make it have a high antioxidant level (3x greater than blueberries with TEAC) to protect against free radicals. Anthocyanins are free radical scavengers that protect cells from oxidative damages. It also contains rutin, an anti-inflammatory known to strengthen capillaries. It can also have a great impact on the appearance of dark circles. In vivo study results show that Tazman Pepper instantly reduces skin redness induced by UV radiation (after single application of a cream containing 2% Tazman Pepper)

Shelf Life and Storage Information for Products and Ingredients
Finished products generally don't need to be refrigerated as they are preserved, but you can refrigerate them to extend shelf life. Shelf life is 9 - 12 months
Sample sizes do have a shorter shelf life (generally 3-6 months and items in jars can dry up quicker than this if the lid is not tightened well enough (except our vitamin C serums - use within 90 days).
Please try to keep out of high humidity or heat if possible! Store out of direct light and in dark cabinet if possible also!
Exfoliating Acid products will last 1 year.
The only thing we don't suggest refrigerating is the mandelic or salicylic acid serums as those can crystallize in the refrigerator and not go back to their normal state even if you warm them up.
