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 Our Products and Ingredients
Finished Products - generally don't need to be refrigerated as they are preserved, but you can refrigerate them to extend their shelf life. The shelf life for most products is 9-12 months. Vitamin C Serum(s) and VitaResurface products should continually be refrigerated to extend their shelf life.
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 (Vitamin C Serums - use within 90 days).
Please keep your products out of humidity, heat, direct light and in a dark cabinet when possible:Exfoliating Acid - products have a shelf life of 9-12 months. The only things we don't suggest refrigerating are the Mandelic Acid Serums or Salicylic Acid Serums, as they can crystallize in the refrigerator. If this happens, you can set the product into a hot water bath to see if the crystals will dissolve.
Additional Items That Require Refrigeration and/or Kept in the Dark:Hydrosols and Distillates - remove 1 ounce of hydrosol and add it into a separate,sterilized spray bottle and spritzer. Keep the larger bottle in the refrigerator.
Carrier and Exotic Oils - generally, you can refrigerate all carrier oils, although some very rich oils will solidify. This is fine. All you have to do is take it out, warm it up at room temperature and it should liquefy. If not, set the bottle in a hot water bath and occasionally shake the bottle, which will hopefully turn into a liquid. There are some oils with a super long shelf life, like Coconut Cream and Jojoba Oil.
Refrigeration is not necessary, but it surely won't hurt:Essential Oils - essential oils are best stored in a cool, dark place.
Co2 Extracts - these should continually be refrigerated.
Butters - we suggest refrigerating our "skincare" butters. You can remove
what you need and keep the rest in the fridge.
Clays - keep in a dry, dark place. Shelf life is at least 2 years.
Herbs - all herbs (whole or ground) should be kept in a dark, cool and dry location.
