I hadn't but I phoned my Mum and she has. It's been around for a while but she doesn't use it or know anyone who does either. They get theirs just burnt off free on Medicare when they go to the docs, so it saves them buying a cream.
The devil's apple is a weed that is a curse to my brother as it grows all over his farm..prickly fruit with round yellow/green apple size, like a puff ball in shape but spiky. It attracts swarms of butterflies.
Thanks for the site.
Looks like he is saying they use mucopolysaccharide as as an emulsifier? Lar? (if you're reading this is that right?)
I do agree about the skin creams in Oz not penetrating..they're useless. I make up my own..but so far I've just used a spoon of commercial body butter as an emulsifier...I wouldn't mind not using that although its mostly coconut oil and shea butter.
Better get on topic...let's see. I make up creams with oils..like EPO, coconut oil, VitE, jojoba, apricot, almond etc. and aloe vera,shea butter, glycerin and then add stuff like tyrosine, ascorbic acid sometimes...still experimenting.
So far I'm haven't looked for a good emulsifier.
I phoned a company today that sells some but they don't know about that one.
(We did have a long chat about the cream I'm using for burning off skin cancers though as her husband is using it too..he's up to the burning red stage)
They've got an emulsifier that is a mixture of cetyl alcohol, sodium sterylactilite? (I think they said<g>), and glycerin stearate? ..all vege sourced..but I'm uncertain about how penetrating they would allow the cream to be. I'm going to get a free samples to play with, I hope.
I know the usual beeswax and macadaemia nut wax sits sits on surface...and the commercial products use mostly petrochemical based.
