    I too am noticing drier skin as I'm using Solban and then Retinil on my face.

    Should we be worried that prolonged use of the ethanol will increase free radical damage (aging)?

    "Small amounts (about 3% alcohol, but keep in mind skincare products contain amounts ranging from 5% to 60% or more) applied to skin cells in lab settings over the course of two days increased cell death by 26%." Ethanol signals for apoptosis in cultured skin cells. - PubMed - NCBI (from Alcohol in Skincare: The Facts)

    Also "The research is clear: Alcohol harms your skin’s protective barrier, triggers free-radical damage, incites inflammation, and makes oily skin and redness worse. To put it simply, it’s pro-aging."

    How can we negate these effects with Solban?

    And do you think I should stop using Retinil on my face? I was thinking to use it there as a substitute for Retin-A/retinol... but not sure if it matters where I put it. The ethanol is concerning me...

    The doses of ethanol you will get from applying either one of these two products topically are not likely to lead to skin aging, especially considering the active ingredients in both substances are anti-aging for the skin. The study you mention found effects after only 2 days. You must have been using the products for longer than that. Have you noticed any signs of skin aging? The drying is most likely due to the inhibition of sebum production by aspirin and caffeine, not so much the ethanol.

    Been using Solban on my face and scalp to treat a bad case of Seborrheic Dermatitis and so far after 5 weeks it has not returned, which is the longest I have been s.d. free in over 20 years.. Nothing has even come close to working this well, and I have tried everything. I know its the solban because I still have the flare up in the middle of my back where I can not reach with the spray bottle. I have also added taurine to a bottle and applying it to my hairline daily, with some tiny hairs returning. I will keep you updated..

    How much taurine did you add to the Solban bottle?

    @haidut, what dose of taurine would you suggest adding, assuming you agree it's a good idea?

    This is fantastic! Thanks for reporting!
    Did you make your own taurine solution or add it to the SolBan?

    I think taurine is not very soluble in water, and at room temp you can do like 50mg/ml solution of taurine. It's probably enough to have an effect though, especially when combined with SolBan.

    I used the 2 gram scoop that came with the taurine added to a full bottle of solban. Went through that whole bottle without it clogging, but I shake it quit vigorously before applying. It does make your hair a bit stiff, but that is the only side effect so far, and I have not had any white residue form on my scalp either...

    Just checked and it is a 1 gram scoop, the 2 gram was from another supplement container...

    What I noticed is if I use the Retinil too often on top of the Solban (I use Solban every morning), my face feels dry and starts to get red, like it's irritated (it looks worse than it feels).

    If I don't have to worry about aging or damaging my skin, then I'll continue using them. Maybe I just need to put a cream on top... I was worried I'd interfere with the absorption.

    I have a three lipomas that I have not yet had surgically removed. I'll order and give this a try and see what happens.

    Solban definitely is helping with dry skin on face and hairline. Also my hair looks fuller on the temple hairline and skin looks younger on my face.

    No change in moles so far. Overall this is one of my favorite products because of the overall energy boost it also gives without jittery effects of caffeine.

    Do you spray it directly on your face? Ever get it in your eyes by accident?

    A lot, 2-3 times a day on face and scalp, maybe 5-7 sprays each time. Also put it on my stomach and chest and back which have a good amount of moles that I'm keeping an eye on.

    Good to know, thanks again. If there is any change in mole status please keep us posted.

    For sure.

    Also haidut, I don't think you saw my question in the aspirin treating cancer thread. Would the amount of aspirin in this supplement be enough of a low dose for cancer prevention or does it have to be taken orally for the same effect?

    If you use 5 sprays 2-3 times a day you may get blood concentrations of aspirin and caffeine that may make a difference systemically. Just eating citrus and other ripe fruit daily gives you enough salicylic acid to get the anti-cancer benefit of aspirin.
