It is often counterproductive to use too many products at the same time. In any case, start with doing a test patch of CP outside your face for couple of weeks or more and make sure you don't have any negative effects.

Dr. T,
I was looking at the SkinBio site & noticed an ingredient in the CP Serum that I never saw before - it's "2-bromo-2-nitropane-1,3-diol". I had no idea what it is so I googled it. I guess it's also called "Bronopol", which is a preservative used in paper mills? It said that it hasn't been used since the 1070's in cosmetics because it releases Nitrosamines, which are carcinogenic and breaks down in water to formaldyhyde. Is this something I should worry about? I have been using SkinBio's CP Serum for almost 2 years now (not every day, but still..) Do you think this ingredient is safe to use? Thanks!

By itself, it is not a nitrosamine but a somewhat related compound. However, it can possibly help generate nitrosamines under UV light, heat and/or perhaps in the presence of certain catalysts (possibly even copper ions). Hard to guess the real impact. A specific formulation under particular conditions of use needs to be tested for nitrosamines and other reaction by-products to be definitive.

Keep in mind that some rather low level of nitrosamines are generated within normal biochemistry. - just like some levels of oxygen free radicals are.

Thanks DR. T! It just sounded kind of scary, since I have never heard of it before & don't really understand about nitrosamines. But it is the last ingredient ater the parabens, so it should be a very small amount...I'm not as worried now. Thanks~ :)

I'm studying my facial;
skin for the umptenth time this week and have determined:
Yes, I do see some improvement in my NL folds and brow furrows. But I don't think the slight improvement is worth the red, dry, generaly irritated look my face now has become.
i have perservered for a year using, by instruction, greater concentrations of acids and CPs. It's time to stop :x
Now I need a good, basic, SOOTHING, line of products- No HA please.
I am 50, now with red skin, but otherwise little wrinkeling
