Maybe it would be useful to add some dimethicone or another silicone to the rosacea serum with EGF?

I think a lot of people with rosacea can use dimethicone. Perhaps a good choice. At the same time, I think the fewer ingredients the better. I think at too high of a concentration it has caused me a bit of chin acne in the past, but a low concentration seems to be fine.

Cheers!

WOW, Artist!  That is miraculous!  I'm sure it's a big boost, too!

Way to go!  Big hugs!

what is the rosacea serum made of? where do you purchase it?

 

BTW, dermalogica has made a new hand cream with licorice in it, could be worth a shot

I am formulating a rosacea serum, is that the one you mean?

Do you think that Dermalogica cream with liquorice could be better than our Canvas base cream with liquorice? I don't think so, because our liquorice is the real deal, not a hydroglycolic extract.

Most skin care companies use a propylene glycol/water extract of the common liquorice plant powder, because liquorice is an extract that is very difficult to formulate. Even with the glycolic extract, liquorice still give problems (change of color and smell).

We at SAS solved the problem using a liquorice extract obtained with extracting the plant material with a different extraction method, so that the powder extract is white. Using this extract you get the full benefits of liquorice without formulation problems.

Hannah: ahhh.. that is wonderful about the white licorice...quite an accomplishment! I think butylene is much less irritating than propylene?

Do you mean this one by Dermalogica? http://www.glow.com/product_Skin+Smoothing+Cream_524.htm I don't think this one is better.

The canvas ingredients actually look pretty gentle. This is just an educated guess, but here are some ingredients that I think could aggravate rosacea, keeping in mind that rosacea skin sometimes cannot even tolerate a single oil or even water:

The alcohols - even though they are are not the "stinging" kind: Cetyl alcohol, Steryl alcohol.
I'm not sure about these: Polysorbate 20, Carbomer?, Diazolidinyl urea, Sorbitol?
Having fewer oils, and adding silicones might be good - less chance of reaction to any one oil.

Here are some topicals I have often seen tolerated well by support group members. Keep in mind, we are impressed if even 10% of rosaceans can use it..so, it seems no one forumulation has been perfect for the majority:

-The Noritate base is often tolerated better than metrocream/lotion. Licorice dissolves well in my Noritate. It takes several days, but eventually dissolves fully.
-Zinco (www.lindasy.com)
Active ingredient: microfine zinc oxide 14.5% Other ingredients: Purified water, C12-15 alkyl benzoate, glyceryl stearate, PEG-100 stearate, steareth 21, cyclomethicone, polyacrylamide, C13-14 isoparaffin, laureth 7, phenoxyethanol, synthetic beeswax, glycerin, dimethicone, olive oil, methylparaben, propylparaben, disodium EDTA.
-Linda Sy oatmeal cleanser
-Vanicream
-Clinique Super City Block spf 15
-Jojoba Oil
-Emu Oil
-Silicones, Zinc oxide, Titanium Dioxide
-Rosacea Care line - the cleanser, lotion, and spray: http:// rosaceacare.com/products/products.html
-I notice products with a beeswax/salve type consistency sometimes get good reviews.
-Cetaphil Lotion
-Aloe Vera
-Skinactives - of course!!

Look, more reviews!:

ooops! I thought you were asking in general. Now I see the Dermalogica comment by "professor". Sorry!

My two cents - The retinol and Gingko make me nervous.

plain seakelp, or seakelp rubbed in the hands with a cpl drops of jojoba oil are great for the hair gel....and no smell--just 2 simple ingredients.

I only dab the seakelp on my rosacea blisters overnite.......or a 10min mask.only so far.But i've been trying so many other things that  i havn't played around with the kelp too much yet.

i have rosacea-but with an oilier skin type, even for 54yrs. old ; and jojoba oil is my life line....along with rosacea ltd3, and egf and licorice.

the seakelp and jojoba are perfect for my rosacea skin and hair.

i also use nasal crom nose spray on my rosacea blisters or allergy reaction on my skin.
