How to work with Palmitoylethanolamide?
Sometimes referred to as PEA,
although there is another compound with the same abbreviation. It’s a quite effective, very safe(since the body already makes it), multi
beneficial compound. Especially when it comes to skin irritation and
inflammation. It normalizes a huge amount of genes in the body also
which lends to it’s many potential benefits. It’s used mostly clinically
but anyone can buy a topical of it. It’s just few companies make it, and the
price is extremely inflated, especially considering use for body
application. There are almost no topical products with it I assume due
to it’s very poor solubility something like 6mg a ml in ethanol for
example, and it’s high
melting point of around 93-98 C.
I’ve tried is putting it in some jojoba oil which has very good heat
stability and heating it up, liquefying the Palmitoylethanolamide in the
jojoba. Then immediately stick blending it into a lotion since it
resolidifies extremely fast. Maybe it wouldn’t with more jojoba oil used
but I don’t want a lot of jojoba in the final product. Any thoughts or
ideas on other methods, or changes to improve what I’m already doing?
