30 ml is 1 Oz. 10 gram is 0,35 ounce... I found this on the internet. I do not know american weights and measures, sorry. This was all I could find.
Hope that dr. Todorov can tell you what the u.s. ingredients are. (See my other message)

Yes, now I understand what Tegomuls is. It goes under various names: Glyceryl monostearate; Glycerin monostearate; Stearic monoglyceride; Monostearin.

It is an emulsifier. I am not sure if iit is sold in retail in North America though as an individual chemical.

What about the English name for the other one, Heliozimt?

If this chemical name is correct, then you are right, heliozimt is a preservative, somewhat similar to popylparaben, but pehaps safer considering that it is used as a food preservative in Europe. Where did you buy it as a stand-alone ingredient?

hello again,

There is a shop in Rotterdam that is specialised in ingredients for making your own skincare. They have a web-site and you can also order there.
So I did. I can give you the web-site.. www.drogisterijdelang.nl
You have to look under the chapiter "prijslijst".And then under
"conserveermiddelen"(means preserve)

kind regards
Dia.
p.s. Thanks for your website..dr.Todorov..
I tried to make my own cerams with eccential oils.. did not work.
thanks to you I know the right ingredients now..

Hello Guest,

I think this base-cream is for every kind of skin.It depents from the active ingredients you put into it.

best regards

Maybe this is old news but i've found a website in English.
www.makeyourownskincare.com.
Under F.A.Q. there is a whole page about preservatives.Maybe you can find there an alternative for the thing I use.

Well, I could make a DIY for a base creams, but for most people it may be better and easier to choose an inexpensive base cream compatible with their skin from numerous commercial alternatives. It is also much less time consuming that preparing a base cream. However, if there is a lot of interest in a DIY base cream, I'll consider it.

There are several sites out there that provide instructions/materials for making your own base creams. Some websites go the all natural route as much as possible, others are more open to including synthetic materials. The following website offers pretty good instructions/pricing on a more natural route. http://theherbarie.com/nutrients.html
