Are the Kolorex powdered herb capsules or the softgel capsules stronger?
Both formulations are designed to provide about the same amount of the main ingredient. The choice comes down to availability and personal preference.
Are chemicals used to make the extract?
No. The extract that goes into Kolorex softgels and and creams is produced by subjecting Kolorex Horopito leaf to CO2 gas under high pressure (supercritical extraction). This process is acknowledged as the cleanest in the industry because when the pressure is released the harmless gas is removed and there are no residues, just extract.

Why do Kolorex creams feel hot when I apply them to sensitive skin?
Kolorex Horopito leaves are naturally hot, not unlike cayenne pepper. During the extraction process the activity and heat are concentrated so that even the small amount that goes into the creams can produce a sense of heat. This can be quite sharp if the creams are applied to sensitive, damaged tissue.
Why do Kolorex capsules make me feel unwell?
People occasionally experience nausea or stomach discomfort after taking Kolorex capsules or softgels, particularly the first few times.

Can I use Kolorex products for children or invalids?
It is the strength of Kolorex Horopito that makes it so powerful but this may present a challenge for the young or frail. Begin with very small amounts and only if they are well tolerated build up to the packet recommendation.
