I think we still sell chamomile but I am not crazy about it. The bisabolol will do a better job with the inflammation (unless you are allergic to chamomile and bisabolol).

How about Guaiazulene?

 

Not allergic to chamo, why don't you like it (just curious)? Is it from German Chamomile? I have that e.o. very thick & blue but really loved it mixed w/Heli & Blue Tansey.  Have wondered about using that blend over actives but seems too soon to add that to the mix.... 

 

So my big question: can the 5 ingredients you listed to Bella be mixed to make the Replenix?  Nothing else has to be added?

 

 

Edit to add quest about your quote below:

 

"But please note that the ingredients are not (as they should) in order of concentration"

 

What order/concentration would you recommmed.

 

I'm thinking this may be my a great base to try!  Thanks Hannah!

Hannah,

Do you think that the MNS is ok for us rosaceans since it has Germaben II in it instead of Liquidpar?  What are the chances that you can make the same serum with the Liquidpar?  Thanks

We rosaceans must just drive you nuts!!  But I have an idea.  What about selling the preservative in a seperate vial that comes with the serums, like the surfactants and fragrance kit, and clearly state on the serum order page that anyone who doesn't add one of your preservatives is at their own risk for infection, etc., disclaimer for you guys.  Wouldn't that save you the headache?

 

Just a thought.

I know that some of the lotions used by "rosaceans" contain Germaben II (don't remember which one) so the "prohibition" cannot be that absolute.

Nothing with rosacea or people's preferences in general is absolute, but preservatives are a touchy subject for many and it just occurred to my, why not offer it on the side and cut out all the "special order" requests!

Sorry, but no one answered my question about the EGF kit. It got lost in this thread. Is it okay to use a part of it and leave the reconstituted remainder in the fridge, or not? I'm wanting to test it in only 1 ounce of base. I know this has been addressed before, but I can't find it after hours of searching the posts. I think Karla has 1/4 of a vial in her fridge and is not sure whether or not it's still usable. Someone please......??

From a postig by Kathy in the EGF part of the forum

"

I'm the last one to give advise ...but, I've read just about every post on this board and here is my solution:

 

I mix one kit each of EGF and SOD in a small amount of canvas and keep it in the fridge.  If I'm making one ounce of cream, I take out a quarter of the mixture and add it after all other mixing/shaking/beating is done, stiring gently.

 

I then mark the jar so that I know what is left is only enough for 3 oz. etc.

 

Daniel's advise is to use it all right away, which I'm sure is ideal, but not practical for most of us.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Kathy"

Re. preservatives.

You can make your own serum using our actives. We will not sell serums lacking preservatives because I would not be able to sleep at night, worrying about the possibility that a client would get a nasty eye infection.

Preservatives are being used because before them, people used to get very sick. You may fear a preservative, I think that bacteria and fungi are far more scary.

Thank you so much for that, Hannah!     I should have known that Kathy would have come up with a solution. Brilliant! I'm going to try it right now. Excuse me while I do imaginary cartwheels  in the air!!!!  Who needs sleep, anyway?  Highly overrated.......
