    Topical solution and powder


    Question about mixing powder into your topical solution. I followed your instruction to make my mixture. 6 grams of powder into the solution. Afterward it appears as if the powder did not dissolve. I can see little specks of it in the solution. Is this normal? If not what should I do?

    Did you heat it while using shear mixing force? Did you go below 50 degrees F afterwards?

    And what are you trying to dissolve?

    I am using 6 grams of test base.

    "Did you heat it while using shear mixing force?"

    If you mean, did I use an electric mixer like in the instructions, then yes. I put the pyrex jar into the hot water and mixed for a few minutes. Should I heat it longer?

    "Did you go below 50 degrees F afterward?"

    What do you mean. I did let it cool, then applied it. It was still gritty. Also, after it was dry it seemed like all the powder was left on my skin.

    I just checked it again and it is still gritty after a few hours.
