But gymrat gave me a recipie which u also can use. Take a small bowl add 5 teaspoon of KA powder and warm up 1 teaspoon of distilled water stirr well till its dissolved. If u think the powder needs more distillied water add one full or a half more warm teaspoon of destilled water. When it dissolved it should get like a light lotion. Add this to 120 ml of ur base lotion. Thats 5% KA lotion.But unfortunantly i dont know how many teaspoons of vit e oil u need to keep it at least for a week. For not oxydizing to quick.

    Hey gymmie, How quickly does KA lotion oxidize? One week, two weeks? How quickly do you have to use what you make? I don't mind adding vitamin e oil to keep it lasting longer but I want to know if it is worth it otherwise.

    I wouldn't keep it longer than 1 week to be on the safe side. So make enough that you can use up in 7-10 days max.

    Wow. I see. Should you use KA or KA Dipalmate? Is Dipalmate more stable?

    LA lotion is pretty straight forward and can last a pretty long time. I feel like it is worth it. I don't know about KA lotion. I don't want to buy something that won't last or is unstable. Did you use Jergens lotion to mix with it? Or will any lotion be fine?

    Here is a great post from Iamme, post #53 on page #3.......Iamme is a longtime SCT member extremely knowledable but her job has taken her away from SCT for now. She knew her stuff https://www.skincaretalk.com/t/25455/infinite-skin-peel/40#post432112
