With a light texture, The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG contains an extremely high 5% concentration of caffeine, supplemented with highly-purified Epigallocatechin Gallatyl Glucoside (EGCG) from green tea leaves.
Independent studies have shown that topical use of each of caffeine and EGCG derived from green tea can help reduce looks of puffiness and of dark circles in the eye contour. Additional studies have shown that caffeine can also reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Important notes about use of The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG:
1. Hollowness in the eye contour as a result of structure of sub-dermal tissues like fat and bone can result in visible shadows under the eyes. This shadow, which is not to be mistaken for dark circles, cannot be addressed with topical skincare including this formula.
2. Fat deposits under the eye contour can create permanent puffiness in this area. This type of deposit cannot be improved with topical skincare, including this formula.
3. This serum is supplied in UV-protective packaging, as EGCG is sensitive to light.
