  • Tips and Tricks on formulating a 40% urea foot product

    Any advice would be appreciated. I am having trouble nailing down a really good urea foot balm. My formula dries within 6 months. I use similar packaging as the store brands and I think my ingredients are much better. I use cupuacu butter, btms, sodium lactate, jojoba, glycerine. Its jam packed goodness unlike the store brans that adulterate their product.

    You might get more help if you share your Formula. Otherwise, this post simply states marketing buzzwords and is inadvertently naive.

    1. It uses readily available retail products.

    2. If you procure products, you are likely getting the same materials and quality as commercial suppliers. How are yours better?

    3. “Full of goodness” is too undefined to be objectively useful.

        No offense to the Discussion Board, but anecdotally I feel as if the group now has many more DIYer’s and introductory questions since the upgrade.

    Yes I think you need to list all your ingredients at least - I can’t see Urea in your list but it is 40% Urea Cream? People on the forum do like to help but it is a bit hard if we don’t know the ingredients or the similar OTC product you are trying to replicate or make with different ingredients. Cheers
