I am very happy with both the quality and packaging of the Ferulic acid I ordered. It came in foil packets (I ordered two). Will buy from them again as I use the product in my Vitamin C serum to maintain the PH needed... ...»
Powered ingredient easy to blend, dissolves easily, no gritty feel, product does however transfer this chemical transdermally and should be thought about prior to mixing as it does effect hormones. Gives skin a quick firm appearance in personal formulations and was a great experimental addition to personal products. The DIY provided on this site is the way to go to try out this product. A little goes a long way... ...»
Hi, Ordered this about 5 weeks ago, so I been waiting to DIY and try the product before I left a review. I mixed Palmitoyl oligopeptide and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 Liposome Emulsion, 3/4 tsp, with 3tsps distilled water and 3/4 tsp of rose hip oil. It makes a beautiful light weight serum that I apply at night. You can feel tightening within a few minutes. The tightening subsides in half hour or so and then I apply a moisturiser. Another excellent buy from Bulk Actives. .. ...»

I've been using glucosamine in combination with niacinamide as an addition to my moisturizer to combat dark spots on face and hands. Used twice daily, it does seem to keep them from darkening. Of course, you still need to be religious about using a sunscreen every time you are in the sun. .. ...»

Alpha Bisabolol (Natural)

Due to a severe world wide shortage of the raw material, this product is now extremely expensive and difficult to source.
New generation, 100% pure, synthetic products are an option, but they are crazy $$$$

About Alpha Bisabolol (Natural) in DIY Skin Care

Alpha Bisabolol, a derivative of M. chamomilla (German chamomile), is an optically active unsaturated sesquiterpene alcohol, obtained by extraction
from natural raw materials. Bisabolol is a natural occurring, versatile, active ingredient for the cosmetic industry.

Alpha Bisabolol helps administer active ingredients transdermally by enhancing skin penetration. Bisabolol is also found in some lotions for reducing wrinkles and acne.

 The most important effects of Bisabolol are:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-bacterial
  • Anti-mycotic
  • Anti-phlogistic
  • Non-allergic

 Bisabolol is a preferred active ingredient for protection against the recurring stresses of the environment on the skin. 

Applications for Bisabolol include acne treatment preparations, after shave products, baby care, body lotions & scrubs, hand lotions (anti-bacterial,) oral hygiene preparations, face and body moisturizers, as well as pre-sun and after-suncreams and lotions. Use levels range from 0.1% - 0.5% in formulations.

Natural vs. Synthetic

Natural Alpha Bisabolol is 97% as active (-) alpha-bisabolol isomer.
Synthetic Alpha Bisabolol is 42.5% as active (-) alpha-bisabolol isomer.

 Formulating chemists use 50% less natural alpha-bisabolol than synthetic alpha bisabolol to achieve the same results.

"Camomile has been used for centuries as an antiphlogistic for the skin and mucous membranes. It was assumed in the past that the therapeutic efficacy of camomile was due to its chamazulene content. However, investigations carried out in recent years have shown that apart from chamazulene, the (-)-alpha-bisabolol content, in particular, is responsible for theantiphlogistic effect.

In a paper entitled "The antiphlogistic effect of alpha-bisabolol", a direct comparison was carried out between (±)-alpha-bisabolol rac. and (-)-alpha-bisabolol natural. using carrageenan oedema in rats, croton oil oedema in mice and UV erythema in guinea pigs as pharmacological models, to determine the antierythemic and antiphlogistic effects.

 The combined results of the three trials show that (-)-alpha-bisabolol nat. has approximately twice the effi-cacy of (±)-alpha-bisabolol. Further, (-)-alpha-bisabolol nat. has been shown to possess antiphlogistic properties in the treatment of UV-induced erythema on human skin. " BASF product documentation
