  • Dermofeel PA-3: Do any US-based “repackers” carry this ingredient?

    No luck searching Making Cosmetics, Lotioncrafter, FSS, or Ingredients to Die For.  (Lotioncrafter has the powdered form of sodium phytate, but I was trying to find this particular liquid.)

    Thank you.

    Do you not have the water (and alcohol) to add?

    Cheaper to buy the ingredient…and add your own water. :)

    It has only 1% alcohol so you can not use it at all if you make your own version

    Well, now that you mention it, I did have one fundamental question:  how is it that the recommended dosing (roughly, 0.1%-0.5%) appears to be the same for both sodium phytate (in powder form) as it is for Dermofeel PA-3, which is 50% sodium phytate by weight?

    @Graillotion:  Good point.  I actually could make by own, but I think I would do 25% water/25% ethanol to hopefully kill some of the bugs Lotioncrafter might be sending my way.  As @Abdullah references, I am not really sure why they are bothering to incorporate 1% ethanol.

    Supplier recommendation doesn’t mean you should do only that range.

    I think the reason for the range….is SP is used as more than just a chelate.  At the higher rates…they are touting a skin benefit. :)

    Has anyone had any luck finding the name brand?

    Nope. I order mine, like 90% of my stuff, from Europe.

    Late to this party…so I can create my own solution of Sodium Phytate with distilled water? What would the percentages be? Should I add a preservative to this solution? What would the shelf-life be? Thanks!😄
