    Manipulating HQ at home

    Guys, If I buy 30g of HQ crystals and dilute It in alcohol and mix with a cream, How much ML of the cream should I use to reach 60% of HQ?

    Thanks!

    Wait 60% hydroquinone???? Jeez sorry but I think that's super insane. Maximum I've heard of is 10% which is really too much. I think you can play safe with 4% max

    do not do that you are going to irritate the hell out your skin and will cause redness. a minimum of 5% will lighten you, body skin and face Your best bet is to mix it with PG, not alcohol. cream is tricky to work with. please be smart about your skin

    Should I Just dissolve HQ in propylene glycol and add some more until I reach the right concentration and pass on the skin like a 'serum'?

    Yes you can use it as a serum in which I’ve been using for years with no issues.there’s a formula to use when you make your diy HQ depending how much you are trying to make. When I first started out I used 10% for body skin and 5% for face and these are safe for your skin. anything more could possibly turn into contact dermatitis. have you exfoliated for at least 6 weeks?
