    I was chatting to a mate about this product and we were both stumped as to the source of the cholesterol?
    Also, I PMd you for discount code so I can purchase! Thank you! :)

    Right?!?! Try this product at night and Defibron in the day so you can compare. Then like I do, layer in the morning - your skin will remain moist and plump/vibrant all day long!

    So sorry for the delay - it's from an Australian classic - lanolin! Actually a really interesting substance, also a source of lanosterol and other sterols

    It's great to see people taking the information shared here and using it to make their own products.

    My girlfriend added 'misting sprays' to her extensive 'face routine' (can't remember if it was 'skincare' or 'beauty') and reading the ingredient list (it was pressurised mineral water in a can) inspired me to finally make my own 'water spritzer'. Ingredients are just Niacinamide, Taurine, Caffeine & Vitamin C (no aspirin as i'm in the UK).

    I spray it on my face a couple of minutes before moisturising and after 1 month my skin looks and feels better than it has in a few years.

    Once January is over (damned 5-week month) I'll definitely order some of this and give it a shot.

    Fantastic branding by the way, It looks incredibly professional!

    Just with boiled water.

    The Concentrations are:
    4% niacinamide
    1% caffeine
    4% taurine
    15mg/ml Vitamin C (this is the concentration recommended for vitamin C to have a preservative effect).

    Can't recall why taurine is 4%. Niacinamide and Caffeine concentrations are lifted from Solban (if i wasn't UK based i'd be trying to squeeze aspirin there too).

    thank you - very kind of you to say! I agree, there's something very satisfying about making your own bespoke products. I'm liking the sound of your spritzer - you could try out willow bark extract as an alternative to aspirin that is readily available in the UK

    Just did some googling and found out it's an astringent. That should be a perfect addition, thanks a lot!


    You can get aspirin, just not in the pure powdered form that you can elsewhere. The uk is very cautious of Aspirin, many shops don't even sell it. You can only really get it in Alka Seltzer or enteric coated tablets.

    About the inhibitory effect on MMP's.....don't know much about this but are you sure that's a good thing?
    Because Ray said collagen increases with age, therefore dissolving of collagen seems like it would be a good thing.

    From here: Gelatin, stress, longevity
    "Inflammation produces fibrosis, because stress, hypoxia, and inadequate supply of glucose stimulate the fibroblasts to produce increased amounts of collagen."

    Hi everyone - in case you missed it, I just launched my second product!
    The new product is a lip balm that contains emollients such as lanolin - a rich source of cholesterol, lanosterol and other sterols, olive squalane and fractionated coconut oil. It also contains the active ingredients willow bark extract (a standardised extract containing salicin -which is similar to aspirin), allantoin - which has similar skincare properties to urea - namely as a keratolytic and moisturiser, along with organic honey for its healing benefits.

    I hope you like the new product and if you'd like to try it, please feel free to Pm me for a raypeatforum discount code :)

    Please work on a product with urea!

    I know Allantoin has a good rep and track record as a skincare active, but maybe it isn’t all „peaty“.
    It can act similar to metformin systemicaly, which means as a mito-hormetic agent. Don’t know if it has this effects on dermal cells as we when applie topically but it might warrant research

    ah interesting - I wasn't aware of this so I'll look into it. I did check with ray that it was safe to supplement and he said he thought so
