    How to Dilute Salicylic Acid Powder?

    I bought 9 grams of 100% salicylic acid powder on ebay for like 7 dollars.
    I want to know how to disolve or dilute 100% salicylic acid. Do i mix it with Alcohol? What kind? How? What concentration of alcohol?

    According to the seller description i will have 16 ounces of the dissolvement, is that so?

    Anyways, After i dilute all of it i want to add a certain amount to a lotion of 20% urea. I will also add jojoba oil and sea buckthorn oil. I'm going to make a homemade lotion for Keratosis Pilaris. Thank you!

    Sounds great. Here's the recipe I use for salicylic acid toner:
    Homemade Tendskin Recipe - MakeupTalk.com Community

    You'll just have to figure out about how many milligrams of sal powder to use. an aspirin is usually what, 250mg? 300? it varies so you might look for other recipes like that. If you do some more googling, you should find a cosmetics supply online that also has recipes and I recall they sold sal acid but I don't recall the company.
    Let us know how it works out, sounds like youre onto a good recipe!
    - bd: 46 yo F; Dr. Woods Black Soap w/Shea Butter for facewash; Sea Salt + Epsom Salt scrub in shower; Cetaphil RestoraDerm unscented lotion, Alba Botanica Kona Coffee After-Sun lotion on face; reg. exercise; OilPulling; a basic multi-vite plus calcium/Vit D, o3s; eating GLUTEN-FREE DIET for Celiac Disease, and not much dairy as I get allergic reaction; Arms 99% clear, face neck chest 98%, legs 90% clear, butt is 99% clear. All dietary treatments above help reduce my sinus congestion and joint pain besides help my skin.

    I still don't know how to dissolve the powder by size =(

    On a side note, i have been using the lotion with the oils and it's just a moisturizer. However, my kp is clearing little by little becasue I've been using dead sea salt!!! It works!!

    Here's the site that has recipes. You may need to browse through them to find the sal acid ones. Sal acid is in skin lightener formulas, anti-acne, and a few others. See how it's mixed in and in what amt...

    I looked at the site bunnyday but no mention of what alcohol anyways i was browsing on this webstie Homemade Salicylic Acid cheaper - Acne.org Message Boards and i'm going to use witch hazel in lieu of rubbing alcohol.

    "For 2% salicylic acid, you can estimate .32 ounces salicylic acid powder for a 16-ounce bottle of witch hazel alcohol."

About KeratosisPilaris.org

Keratosis Pilaris is a very common benign genetic skin condition. KeratosisPilaris.org is the definitive resource for KP on the internet.

KP appears as rough or bumpy skin on the back and/or outer sides of your upper arms. The severity of the symptoms varies from person to person. You can also manifest it on the face as a natural blush (known as KPRF or Keratosis Pilaris Rubra Faceii).

This community is composed primarily of KeratosisPilaris.org community members, but is also open for those interested in the topic.
