    @haidut : Hi Haidut, just a quick question, does your friend use EstroBan on the skin, like a serum, to control skin aging?

    Yes, on the skin as an ointment.

    I put it all over my face and neck in the evening (when I remember). So probably 15 drops.

    I have no experience using Solban for sebaceous cysts, but I wanted to mention something that did work for me. Several years ago I had several cysts in a very...sensitive area. My gyn said she could remove them surgically, but I was having none of that, so after some internet research, I tried iodine. It was just the usual povidone iodine you can buy at the drugstore. I soaked a cotton ball with it and put one over each cyst, and I kid you not, it worked within 48 hours (i.e., they all drained), and they never came back. It was downright miraculous.

    Hi bzmazu, I was wondering if you were able to resolve your tinnitus? Thank you

    Why do you need ethanol in this? Can't the ingredients be dissolved in just water? Ethanol dries the skin and I'd like to avoid it on my face.

    I did it even dodgier because I had no caffeine powder, so crushed up No-Doz and an aspirin tab in some purified water in a roughly correct ratio - was putting it on my legs before sunbathing and it worked amazing - instant glowy legs, dry scaley skin gone, cellulite appearance reduction. Great to do before a fancy event when you're getting the pins out.

    I also use some dilute home brewed coffee and added aspirin and niacinamide to that for an instant skin boost - makes your face glow for sure :)

    Solban probably slighty more effective but those things work in a pinch.

    It helps a bit to get the chemicals beyond the first layer of skin, which helps increase and prolong its effects. Ethanol is also a disinfectant and many people spray such mixtures on scrapes, wounds, cuts, etc, so it helps there too.

    @haidut I must say this is the one product of yours that I wish came in a (much) bigger bottle. It's the start of a loooong hot summer where I live and I'm gonna need a lot of solban to get me through it!

    Question for the Aussies who have dabbled in bootleg solban: where do you source your ingredients? Would love some recommendations

    That would be awesome. I would definitely buy a larger bottle.
    Also a higher percentage of aspirin, maybe a 2-4% version for acne prone people would be great.

    In the meantime, curious, can I add a little aspirin to my solban to increase the percentage? Would that negatively affect the solubility of the ingredients already in there? I was going to try making it a 2% solution if possible to see how that goes.

    Aspirin is not very soluble in water. You can try to add more to SolBan but it may precipitate.
