I know! I think the nurses even slipped her a couple of extra packs, because she is just really great to people. They're 1 gram packets. How much should I add to 4 ozs of cream?

Thanks Hannah, I have never really understood what natural active peptides are, despite your explanations in news letter. This is probably because I confuse them with matrixyl etc, which is meant to be slightly different.

I wonder if hydrolyzed collagen is a better name?

Yes, it is, because it says exactly what the stuff is: insoluble collagen protein cut into small pieces to make it soluble and available to the skin. The amino acids in these pieces will be used by the skin and will also help retain moisture.

AlyssaH, if you are still around here, I'm curious how your recipe turned out!  Was it a big active mess or the perfect cream for you?   [smile]

  15. GABA
  16. Shea mouse 
  17. Sea Kelp
I have used all of these actives w/no negative reaction from my skin. I feel confident in adding everything to my face cream. I was thinking of leaving the Co-Q10/ceramides to dissolve overnight in some rose hip seed oil. Mixing the shea mousse/canvas cream in a double boiler, then adding in dissolved Q10/ceramides. Letting that cool, adding in botanicals & letting those sit overnight, the next day mixing the rest of the actives, including proteins. Should I mix the liquid crystal at the same time as the canvas/shea mousse, & should I be adding the Sea Kelp in at that time also? Will heat affect sea kelp adversely?

ETA: I think I will omit the ROS* terminator from my formula, not sure that I should mix SOD & proteins.

I ended up adding a few actives to the Antioxidant Day Cream, a lot of proteins. It feels tingly while it's soaking in, I like it.

As long as you remember that "tingly" does not mean that your skin is actually doing something. It has to do more with nerve terminals.

Oh, lol! I equate tingly with doing something. Because of the plumping glosses. The tingly from the proteins makes me think that that proetins are plumping my skin & making it look younger [wink]

Not at all.

This is why menthol and other "stinging" chemicals are used to shampoos and cream.

Irritants will plump your skin, but they are always a bad idea.
