so im ordering some bulkpowder (5g) and some Penetrate (8oz) and im going to make a homebrew transdermal only question is,i have read the article on here about making transdermal form and also another how-to article (different site). the FAQ on here reccomends mixing the form and penetrate with some DMSO (whatever that is?) or some type of alcohol...while other FAQ's i have seen reccomend just mixing up JUST the penetrate and form.
which would be the better method??
heres the "how-to" from Penetrate, they say simply mix the two together and carefully heat and your good to go
according to a forum post on here...
Alternate Mixing Method For Bulk Form & Penetrate - Paraphrased from Redwolf
Take a glass beaker and add 4ml of Benzyl Alcohol to it.
Add 5g to glass beaker containing BA (Benzyl Alcohol) or DMSO (Can be found at your local Cattle / Farmer Supply Store for about $8 bottle)
Add 6ml Penetrate and mix ( if closed container "shake like hell" )
Add half bottle penetrate ( 4oz ? )
Voila! No grit at all
Good digging! You can also look for a thread by Neoborn. The only thing about these methoids is that I beleive they may be from a different formula of Penetrate. I think(I am not sure) that it used to be similar to the e-form in which it weas an alcohol based spray as opposed to a lotion which it currently is. I have made it just using the directions on Primordial Performances website for the Topical Solution (same thing) and it came out fine. The only recommendation I have is that you break down the formestane in a mortar with pestle before hand. It'll make it much easier to get into the solution.
No need to search ...
1. 5g formestane = half a bottle Penetrate
2. Dissolve formestane in skin friendly organic solvent (benzyl alcohol is recommended)*
3. Heat the Penetrate in a bowl of boiling water
4. Add the Penetrate to the dissolve formestane for good mixing or the dissolved formestane into the bottle of Penetrate for convenience
5. Make sure everything is thoroughly mixed
* I haven't used benzyl alcohol as my solvent
If any of this is disputed, post here and lets all learn some new tricks.
