  • hasanarsan, Thank you for your input, but sugar renders yellow tint to the soap at high temperatures.
  • I also suppose that Soybean Peroxidase and Superoxide Dismutase have been added to the mix as antioxidants in order to support Arborcide activity along with Citral which has good antibacterial properties as well, despite they put it as a part of fr…
  • Thank you so much, Johnb for your expert input. I have ommited BHT and advised to use a trace % of Sodium Metabisulfite and it solved the problem completely. The result is waterlike colorless soap.
  • @ gfeldman , This problem could be solved successfully with:
- AAK's Lipex Shealight
- AAK's Lipex Sheaclear
- Phoenix's Phoenoxol BD-10P 
There are some other emolients you may find useful in Phoenix's product list a…
  • @BartJ , They have got their own ingredients. The technical data are identical to mine ones. However, they get the results like this.
  • Taracauc, yes, that's a cosmetic chemist's work.
  • Sunstone, manganese? That's still unclear whats going on, since this reaction is visible both in their tank and in the laboratory glass beaker. There is only difference - they get the pieces of the pink soap in the tank and just a pink color in the …
  • Belassi, However, FDA is on the right track in this, since any product that has been claimed as "anti acne" is a drug, medicine. The FDA does its job protecting people from wrong products that have no approvements as anti acne treatment. W…
  • chemicalmatt, you're reading my mind :) I wanted to add this input with banking system! More restrictions always bring more violations and barely solve the safety issues.
  • I think it won't either. This industry is pretty well regulated. This system has been working for decades and probably, it is not ideal, but the one of the best among other possible systems in the world. It based on scientific and true idea that cos…
  • Yes, correct, it's easy to make the solution. Just follow the advise you have got
  • First of all, thank you for your thought, Bob. Unfortunately, I have not seen their tank. I have only formulated the product, but I recommended to passivate the tank to avoid the occurence of possible complexes or to order another special tank for t…
  • EliseCortes, yes, distilled monoglycerides
  • I have found that 95%DMG work even better in such blends than regular GM and yield beautiful emulsions.
  • I used to work with Emulium Delta. I find it an excellent emulsifying mix, extremely versatile and able to give the range of products from milk to thick cream. Very easy to work with
  • I would try soy waxes of different grades and they are not expensive. The Palm kernel hydrogenated oil would also work great
  • Hello David08848,
When I make all sorts of having soaps I use this calculator:

It has all basic acids and very simple at the same time. 
Good luck! :)
  • There are few brands offer such gels. However, they are not so popular especially among salon professionals. Some of them are acrylic based products while others are just regular polishes. UV gels have some technical advantages from the clients' and…
  • Hello Andy, The skin condition (let’s say disease) you have got is very complex to cure it merely with topical treatments. It deserves the medical examination of the several systems. I do realize why corticosteroids are not effective and sometimes t…
  • Perry, your story is captivating and encouraging! :) I remember my early years when I loved to spend my time dealing with plants and animals like you. Later during the school years, my favorite subjects were Biology and Chemistry and I knew from the…
  • I could just assume that formulation contains three different alcohols altogether - Glycerin, Panthenol and Sorbitol ergo no additional solubilizers required to maintain the clear appearance of this product.
  • @braveheart re: Malic Acid. If we talk the current topic 1-2% would do. However you may use up to 20% and up in some special formulations as professional chemical peels. Please, advice what does MSM mean? re: Formic acid. As we all know there are …
  • eczema, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis. But please, don't assume this is a remedy - as I have mentioned -" It helps to treat" and products which contain this amino acid show the obvious results diminishing some symptoms making the life of th…
  • @luiscuevasii You may neutralize any % of Stearic acid and it depends on what you want to get. ust play with it. Also, please, read this http://cosmeticsandskin.com/aba/vanishing-cream.php Nice explanation the issues you have including so…
  • The answer would be too complicated for short explanation. If your products are marketed in the USA, FDA regulates all those rules and requirements. You may visit their website and I bet you will find a lot of basic information. http://www.fda.gov/C…
  • I guess it would be important to make a decision what kind of products you want to get exactly. There are some of them that are preventing frostbite, another ones are for the treatment of the injured or affected skin or all together in one product f…
  • There are plenty of them and they are coming from different chemical families - glycols, oligosaccharides, sugar alcohols, PVA, DMSO, PVP, salts etc. Are you looking it for cosmetic formulation?
  • @luiscuevasii I guess your initial formulation (69% water, 23% stearic acid,2.3% glycerin, 0.3% TEA, 3% mineral oil, 0.8% propyleneglicol and 1% cetyl alcohol) may be working if you adjust the %%% of ingredients. In formulations like this one the …
  • @pma Thank you for the article. It comes along with my own studies with formulations I have made for atopical skin conditions. Indeed, as I could scrutinized adding 5-10% of L-Arginine to the formulation significantly helps to treat some skin condit…
  • @Belassi it's just a Glycol that helps other ingredients to penetrate the Stratum Corneum, nice humectant, moisturizer...
