  • Giving away hard-to-source ingredients for anyone who can pick up from W London

    Hello everyone, it’s been a very long time since I was on here!

    I finally got round to sorting out some unwanted cosmetic ingredients. I was going to throw it all out but it felt such a shame when some were so hard to get hold of. Most of the items are supplier samples or purchases from 2021-2022 and were sent from all over the world. Everything is unused or barely used except to try once, and a lot was never even opened.

    I discarded anything prone to rancidity etc (e.g. “natural” ingredients), but still had 100 items left which are listed below and also in the attached PDF for easier reading.

    Rather than being for manufacturing, the collection is probably more useful for students or home formulators who have ever thought “I wonder if that ingredient is any good and how it behaves” but had no way of getting hold of any to try.

    Is anyone wanting these materials and is willing to collect it all from West London (I’d prefer not to break it up)? You can even keep the Very Useful boxes that they’ll come in 🙂. Please message me if interested.

    Wow, that is very generous of you. [I would grab them, but I am in New Zealand :'( )

    Hopefully they will be given to someone who will use them and enjoy the knowledge they will gain from experimenting with them 🙂

      😄 You couldn’t be much further. Shame, as no-one else seems to have shown any interest!

        Well…. I am almost as far away…. 😂

        Just curious on an unrelated note… Did you stop formulating…or did you find your perfect ingredients, and you are now working almost exclusively out of that pool?

        I am in the latter category…however I find…every time I give something away…. I find reason to wish I could re-test it in a new format. 🤣

        Aloha 🌴 and good luck.
