Hey all!
I've read on various threads on SCT that mixing green tea and vit c is an uber no no. So my question is would it harmful to use Derma E Pycnogenol Toner, which contains green tea as the third ingredient, and the diy vit c+e+ ferulic acid serum in the same sitting? Could I wait 15 minutes after applying the toner the use the serum or should I just not use the two together at all?

Also here is the list of ingredients in the toner in case that's of interest


Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Organic Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract*, Organic Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract*, Pinus Pinaster (Pycnogenolae) Bark Extract, Panthenol, Allantoin, Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract*, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.




Thanks in advance

Sorry I don't know :( Until someone knowledgeable finds this post, have you thought of sending a message to the manufacturer of the toner?

Thanks SoNat for the suggestions. I'll shoot a message over to folks at Derma E and post their response here.

Never heard that mixing green tea w/ vitamin C could be problematic.

If so, I wonder why?
