Alright tmmorow should be day i tackle my dark knuckles and knees....my steriod based lotion should be made tommorrow if all is well

 

This is the recipe i will be using

 

1st of things you need:

 

Bowl

whisk

Distilled Water

Actives(b3+AA)

Steroiods

ph tester(digital or strips)

Shea butter base lotion

Container

 

 

This is what i have so far

 

Shea Butter Lotion for Base

 

dsc00495b.jpg

 

got it at amazon...i tried a lttle this morning...very smooth and silky and absorbs great and all natural!! It will make a great base!!

 

http://www.amazon.com/Shea-Touch-Natural-Lotion-Original/dp/B002EBR0ME

 

 

 

PH Strips

 

dsc00496xy.jpg

 

 

 got these on Amazon as well, although the digital ones are far accurate, i didnt have time to research a good one and also i would have need calibration fluid...blah blah...

 

 

 

http://www.amazon.com/Micro-Essential-Lab-Brilliant-Insta-Check/dp/B0045I6GG0

/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1332986135&sr=8-5

 

 

 

Clobestasol Proprinate

 

 

dsc00497y.jpg

 

Decided im gonna use a whole tube in MY lotion, so i got the L'abidjanaise Coco butter cream A.K.A Charisma Glowbiggrin.gif

 

 

http://www.beautyofnewyork.com/shopping/062V170312KI1050.htm

 

 

 

All thats missing are my actives...which i should get tommorrow

 

 

 

Receipe- This receipe is my own reipe i will be using on my self...i want to yield a 9oz cream from it

 

8oz Shea Butter Lotion for Base

2.5tsp Niacinamide

3tsp Alpha Arbutin

5og Clobestasol tube cream

 

(you can use more aipha arbutin, but you will have to put it in the batch calculator to get the measurements)

 

http://www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com/Calculators/Batch_Size_Calculator.aspx

 

 

 

1. Dump Shea Butter lotion in a bowl

2. Dissolve b3 and AA with distilled water)seperately)

3.Add the dissolved powders into shea butter base and mix

4 Check PH- Should be 6-6.5 no less or higher

5. Add the whole tube of roids and mix

6.Check ph again should be same

7 add to a container

 

Very easy...will show you with pics tommorrow

 

btw i have been exfoliating my knees and knuckles for 3weeks now with peels and lotions..so i would recommend doing that before starting any application even though we are gonna use steriods, because the less amount of time we use steriods is the better so an exfoliated skin will lighten faster, and always remeber 4weesk should be your limit and once you see results...stop usage..now maintaining would be next and i will experiment with my other DIY cream and see how it goes to mantain my post 'steriod lightened skin'

 

 

I also purchased some immune building supplements to take, while im on my 'steriod lightening', its just a security blanket...one of my supplements is MSM

 

dsc00499j.jpg

 

 

http://www.amazon.com/NOW-Foods-Pure-Powder-1-Pound/dp/B0013OSNX8

 

 

Also i would use retin a with this lotion, even though retin a doesnt stop the side effects of steroid use, im still gonna use as a sense of security..lol...its like taking a gun with no bullets to a fight, even though useless, you still feel safe with it eh?

Yes!!! Yes!!! It was a Success!!! (that rhymes..hehe)

 

I have made my 1st DIY cream minus the the roids....lol

 

 

Discalimer: This recepie does contain the steriod Clobestasol Proprionate

 

 

 

SO i adjusted the recipe a bit

 

8oz Shea Butter Lotion

3 teaspoons B3

3 teaspoons Alpha Arbutin

1 tube Clobestasol Proprionate

 

 

1. Dump Shea butter Lotion in a bowl

 

 

dsc00504pv.jpg

 

 

 

 

2. Measure Out Actives in seperate Bowls

 

 

 

 

dsc00506s.jpg

 

 

 

3. Dissolve the actives with distilled water(just little drops) until its dissolved and forms a paste

 

 

dsc00507xo.jpg

 

 

 

4. MIX!!! MIX!!! MIX!!!! with whisk(that rhymes..hehe)

 

 

dsc00510ex.jpg

 

 

5. Check PH(adjust accordingly)

 

 

dsc00508gu.jpg

 

 

6. Squeeze out a tube of 0.05 Clobestasol Proprionate into mix

 

 

dsc00509qr.jpg

 

 

7. Check PH again: now this is very important, i had to raise the ph because it was low with TEA(triethanolamine) but i raised it too high so i had to to lower it down with  a little Lactic Acid but i was a liitle low so i dropped a single drop of TEA and it was PERFECT!!! SO to anyone compounding MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR PH ADJUSTERS....very very important!!!!

 

 

 

 

8. Scoop into a container of choice with spatula

 

 

dsc00511aw.jpg

 

 

Voila its done!!!...It was so easy...now as i mentioned before this does contain roids so i will be only using it on my hands, knees and feet...I will make a progress thread on it with before and after!!!

Update:

 

So i tried out my concoction last night, it felt so good to use something made by your own hands......

 

I like the texture...very creamy but not too thick....ooh and the Shea Butter is so moisturizing, i had to stop myself from lathering all over my body because i forgot it has roids...I took some before pics of my knees and hands to compare

 

 

And for the ladies who mention samples, i'll be willing to send some free samples but i want to test the cream on myself 1st, i would hate to send a cream that doesnt work.....so give me a week or 2 to make a decision

I was just kidding about the samples, lol, by the time I finally finishing reading the natural skin lightening thread I'll be pm-ing you so much you'll consider changing your screen name. tongue.gif

Hi all... I have all of my products but realized I need to make adjustments and buy the TEA stuff.  I was super geeked now I'm getting kinda down about it so I thought I would ask, if I begin my mixing now and realize the ph is too low and need the TEA stuff, can it stay in the container without going bad until it arrives?  Are there any alternatives/dupes for TEA? Are there any suggestions for using Sepiwhite (liquid) ... I bought both forms because I wasn't sure.

Thanks in advance

1st of all  the TEA is not a preservative its just a ph adjustor, so you lotion is not gonna go bad without, it might not be effective if the ph isnt correct..I would just wait till the TEA get here and then make everything one time, but also baking soda raises ph but i couldnt tell you how much to add, and i dont know how well it would mix in the lotion....but i would just wait till your TEA arrives

 

And for anyone trying DIY gather all your materials before you begin, very important......

 

Hmm there is no liquid sepiwhite, if your referring to the Skinwhite BLE then that is not sepiwhite, sepiwhite is a white powder, the SkinWhite BLE is mix of bearberry and vitamin C

 

 

btw since im here, ive been using my DIY Divine 3 lotion roughly a week now, its hard to tell now but ill give it another week and then post pics so you guys can judge and tell

The products I purchased both from making cosmetics are SkinWhite  MSH (powder) and SkinWhite BLE (liquid) neither were called Sepiwhite. And thanks, I will wait for the TEA to arrive before mixing.

Alright lets break it down:

 

The SkinWhite MSH and the SkinWhite BLE are two completely different things....

 

 

 

SkinWhite MSH- Is Sephiwhite, at making cosmetics they refer to by its scientific name: Undecylenoyl phenylalanine(so anytime you see this word, its is AKA sepiwhite)

 

 

SkinWhite BLE: is Some mixture making cosmetics has that is a LIQUID that contains bearberry and Vit C

 

 

So how long do you have to wait till the TEA arrives??  you were all pumped and pschyed..lol i could literally fell your excitement through the screen...hehe

I ordered Mon nite but I included other items to justify paying another shipping price.  Tracking says 4/9 so hopefully it will arrive by then.

 

Yeah I wanted to start on my hands and knuckles with this product while I was on spring break this week, they are the most difficult part of my body.  Things worked out differently but its okay, I needed to get the super dry facial skin thing under control so I've been working on that. 

post #78 of 89

so is this roid stronger than NP and does that mean it lightens more/quiker than the np

post #79 of 89

post #80 of 89
