Transdermal EGCG (absorption & toxicity)

Recommended Posts

Due to stomach irritation of high doses of EGCG, I would like to use it transdermal.

This is the extract I consider buying:


So the questions are:


1) Would it be enough to simply dissolve the powder in simple oil and apply it to the skin or would I need something like Emu oil or DMSO to carry the EGCG into the bloodstream?


2) Since the EGCG absorbs directly into the bloodstream, does it bypass the liver altogether? Would this way of application avoid any (liver) toxicity?


Thank you,
