  • @ngarayeva001 I do agree with you. I buy all my things from people who sell things in small quantities. But I have no problem relying only DMDM Hydantoin alone. As mentioned, I have reasonable amount of Urea and other stuff that act as 'co-preserva…
  • @Abdullah You are welcome dear. I did not fully understand your question. Are you referring to DMDM Hydantoin? Short answer is...I DONT KNOW! I honestly do not know because it appears that you kind of insist on eco friendly, green, organic, natu…
  • @ngarayeva001 Weird. I am not getting notification and I cannot tag people, sometimes. I needed to come back here to give more hedge and disclaimer. LOL In all seriousness, hedges and disclaimers are italicised. Yes I know that, in general, no pr…
  • @ngarayeva001 Oh, I learn new word today! CHEMOPHOBIA! Hahaha! I forgot to mention another advantage of DMDM Hydantoin, all formaldehyde-donor in general, is it can also permeate and preserve the headspace of a container. It is a preservative of i…
  • @Aziz Now that's the spirit!  B) Artificial, synthetic, man made, woman made, inorganic, or others are also part of chemistry. I find that synthetic stuff are way more stable than natural ones, and way easier to work with too compared to natural. …
  • Ah. I had the same experience. I was given free sample of GMS-SE, it liquefies only in the presence of a little salt. Not low pH. Just salt. pH neutral. I think another offending one might be Tween 80. My almighty Xanthan Gum suddenly became liquid…
  • @Zink   "Cold cream" technically is any cream that is refrigerated and the evaporation of water. Not necessary the ingredients. I didn't say it!  :D  This is an excellent source of cosmetics history! https://cosmeticsandskin.com/aba/co…
  • OMG! Tough one! I say DMDM Hydantoin. But of course EWG says it is deadly. My only preservative is DMDM Hydantoin. I am too frightened to even try other eco, green, safe, organic, natural ones. I am waiting for my good self and others who use my DM…
  • @Gunther Oops, too late for me to edit what I wrote! I meant fatty alcohols may have -OH group and generally believed that -OH is the magic to binding/attracting water, but in reality fatty alcohols are too weak to be considered as emulsifier and…
  • Oh my days!  :o In my days people used to sunbathe because it eliminates acne, and so it did! It really works by sun burning the skin and peel. There is no need for TCA peel. There is absolutely no repercussion. Skin cancer is fake. High salt lev…
  • This is why I love real people saying real thing and no BS! I 'feel' the same about the claim of Panthenol. It is not only very expensive but also nothing special about it. The only special thing I found about Panthenol is it is very sticky. Way m…
  • @Gunther It is the fatty alcohol in BTMS-50 that does the trick. Bentrimonium Methosulfate/Chloride does thicken to some degree but not enough which is the reason why there is something else added to it. Believe it or not it is viscosity (and yiel…
  • @Pharma I forgot to add that the test did not test enough. They basically added back Glycerol after the tape stripping rather than adding other substances as comparison and see if that aquaglycerolporin also responds to others. That is probably …
  • @Pharma Thanks for confirming my confirmation bias.  XD Cationic's gluey characteristic due to the fact that the skin/hair slightly negatively charged, I presume. Ah. Nonpolar. This is another thing that amazes me. The skin seems to have affini…
  • Only just now I bother to creep this site and found this secret hiding place. I have 'no life' all of the sudden and I am doing this. LOL! My name is Christopher and I am born and raised in Malaysia. My background is complicated, sophisticated, fru…
  • To save money and headache, use nonionic and amphoteric surfactants such as Polysorbates and Cocamidopropyl Betaine. PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil is a foam killer but leaves feelable and noticeable 'film' but not sticky nor slippery. Just another…
  • Benhentrimonium Methosulfate that I always found is with some fatty alcohols. This is the reason why BTMS-50 is believed to 'emulsify' very very high percentage of silicone. It is an illusion and a trickery. 
  • @raiyana   You are most welcome! Sharing is caring! I am known to put my nose in people's live and impose my 'religion' on others. Beauty and fitness industries are full of rubbish. Instagram Gurus are the latest thing. Lots of dangerous informati…
  • @raiyana I see....I would then conclude that you were "joking". LOL. You were perhaps shockingly joke or jokingly shocked as you want to have kids soon. Understandable. Generally it is about 1 to few months of not getting pregnant after …
  • Unbelievable! Panthenol too???? :s I speak from personal experience, after treating my skin with Tretinoin, I observed that it acts like any acids. Acids is said to stimulate 'something'. I think anything that irritates the skin will stimulate col…
  • Just as I guessed! Yes, I am familiar with that part (telomere, senescence, apoptosis) of genetics. However I could not dig Google Scholar for anything about Tretinoin shortening telomere or Hayflick limit correlates to the use of Tretinoin. Yes, I…
  • @raiyana Now, I see that is a red herring, argumentum ad ignorantiam, and ad hominem. How is "Isotretinoin in the system for 5 years" related to the blatant accusation "coz just like you said teenage girls are desperate to get acne …
  • @Pharma Hahahaha! I got your humour! Many Asians actually do have Brightening Complex that causes their Inferiority Complex! Oh well. REALLY good, proven, inarguable stuff like Tretinoin has its own downsides. Yes what did you mean by "look …
  • Oh, it's you again @Pharma . I don't know where in the world you dig so much peculiar data.  Thanks science I get to learn from you. I'm always seeing spirits of alchemist, astrologers, and priests in ancient past, which is cool. I'm not 'complainin…
  • @janele I tried 'making' Pentavitin. Hehehehe. I tasted it. It has caramel flavour. And so I boiled Sucrose with 1% Citric Acid (add some water. 2g Sucrose can dissolve in 1g water). Boil the solution until its temperature reaches about 110°C. Thi…
  • @ngarayeva001 It is very soluble in water! I do not know how soluble it is but I manage to make a solution of it, 60g or 60% in water. I do not know where you live, for me is easy for it to be dissolved due to the high 'room temperature' here. Man…
  • Jeez! When comes to Glucono Delta Lactone, I am already an expert! Hahahaha! Oddly enough, what is inexpensive to you (all) is expensive to me, vice versa. I have plenty of GdL at my disposal! Heat the solution! Need not rolling boil. Need not very…
  • After I spent so much money and effort trying Sodium Hyaluronate and Hyalyronic Acid due to my gullibility, I concluded that they are not as superior to anything. Really is a marketing thing. Firstly, they boast God-given power to absorb water 500 …
  • Ah yes. I understood what @Pharma really means. I think I am rather similar to him. There are plenty of ready-to-whack stuff but I knowingly and deliberately chose the 'suffering/stupid' path kinda, sorta, as though, as if recreating the wheel. This…
  • @Pharma This is also a quick one, from me, for now. I actually wrote another 'essay'. Hehehe! There are a few words I notice you keep repeating. The more I look at them the more they are all interrelated. I just do not know who the heck you are b…
