The Mountain Pepper Berry has a high antioxidant capacity and anti-Inflammatory properties making it a great addition to products for sensitive skin. The berries are also a rich source of Vitamin E, Lutein and the trace minerals Zinc, Magnesium, and Calcium.
Solubility: The berry particles infuse in water producing a dark brown fluid that requires filtering before use. The filtrate is slightly thickened due to the fiberous component of the extract which, in a cosmetic product acts as a source of hydration.
Activity: 1:2 concentration which means the dried extract is twice as concentrated as the fresh berries.
Use Levels: On a solids basis the berries can be used in a formula at levels ranging from 0.2-3%. If you prepare a water extraction (tincture) ahead of time you may put 20g of powder into 80g of water, leave to infuse and then filter. This 20% solution could then be applied to the formula at a rate of between 1-15%.
