    @haidut,

    I have purchased a couple of bottles of SolBan and my first impressions are very positive. If you haven't already done so, could you explain the difference between aspirin and salicylic acid? I see aspirin listed as an ingredient in the first post but salicylic acid listed as the ingredient on the bottle itself. Is it the case that salicylic acid is the active ingredient in aspirin?

    I will change the main thread, thanks for pointing it out. Aspirin is just acetyl-salicylic acid and when applied to skin or ingested it quickly breaks down into acetic and salicylic acid. It is the salicylic acid that is the active ingredient if aspirin, at least as far as increasing metabolism and hair health goes.

    Fyi, for the theory of Demodex mites overinfestation playing a role in rosacea, ethanol kills them.

    Thanks. Were these mites a discussion somewhere earlier in the thread? Was SolBan suggested as a remedy?

    No, I came across the mite issue separately. More conventional treatment ideas like tea tree oil seem toxic, and I wondered about ethanol.

    After reading this I popped 500mgs of niacinamide had 2 cups of coffee and took 81 mgs of aspirin and I must say I feel really positive about life at the moment so I might stick with this routine until I run out.

    I too would cough with last year's newly added succinic acid. This latest batch with identical ingredients doesn't cause me to cough. I wonder if anything else has changed.

    Nothing has changed since last year. Maybe you adapted to it and it does not irritate any more? That's what happened to me at least.

    Can Solban be used alongside Energin and Tocovit?

    @haidut, Would it be better to use actual PDG instead of succinic acid? What if PDG has more hair growing properties besides succinic acid. There is a company called the Anagen Hair Clinic in Tampa, has a topical called BioProtein that has been around more that 20yrears. they us Pentadeconoic acid as well for hair energy. I just was wondering if Solban contained PDG, might make it a better hair growth supplement. thanks in advance.

    Sure, I don't see a problem with it. It is mostly a skin-level supplement and should not have much systemic effects.

    If you read the study on pentadecanoic acid I posted in the original SolBan post you will see the authors clearly state that the hair-growth promoting effects of that acid are due to quick conversion into succinic acid and hence ATP levels. I even emailed them with the same question and they said what I just did - raising ATP is the mechanism of action and in theory any pathway through which this can happen is good. This is one reason some people mix SolBan and Cardenosine in the spray bottle and spray on their scalp for hair regrowth.

    I very much like Solban but not so much the Ethanol in it. I assume the Ethanol is necessary to dilute Aspirin, Niacinamide and Coffein properly.
    I know that I cant just mix the ingredients of Solban easily together but besides that, would it have the same effect on the skin if one were
    just mixing Aspirin, Coffein, Succinid Acid and Niacinmaide in a blender and rigth after that applying it to the skin?

    @haidut

    Does this prevent any of the positive effects of the sun, or only the negative effects?
