    So, I'm in the habbit of making my own lotions. My current mix has:

    Cocoa Butter (the base)
    Microprogesterone Creme
    Aveeno Daily Moisture
    Vitamin E
    Vitamin C
    L-Arginine
    Soy Lecithin
    Ginseng
    Ginko Biloba
    Olive Oil
    A leaf from my Aloe plant

    I'm thinking of adding L-Carnitine to it on the next mix. Any suggestions from the crew? Any warnings for what I currrently have? Odor is an issue, and everything I'm using mixes together to have a rather pleasant odor so far.

    I read that overdosing on L-Arginine can cause your skin to grow thick and tough, but I also read that L-Arginine has a slight skin-softening effect (this might be a special type, though, meant to be topical).

    Despite the amount of oil-based items in this, it's not oily (olive oil, vitamin E from the capsule, soy lecithin from the capsule).

    This is an entire body lotion, meaning it goes on my genitals and pretty much everywhere from the neck down except my face.

    This has worked well for the stretchmarks on my tush. My skin has always been pretty smooth and soft but any help in keeping it that way is nice, as I start to approach the "keep up the work or fall apart" age. :p Working nights doesn't help either. There is on issue, however. My fingernails don't like this stuff at all, so I'll need to think up a seperate hand cream.


    I'm totally unsure if this post fits in with the appearance forum. o.o;

    Nobody has any information to offer? No naturists out there experimenting?

    I've also considered adding Lycopene, Green Tea, and Almond Oil (for scent).

    When it starts bubbling you'd better don a respirator.

    Don't worry, I make sure that what's in it won't kill me or give me a rash. :p Most everything here has either been ingested or used on my skin prior.

    It all sounds good except the progesterone. A young male probably should not be using that.

    Why's that? o.o I'd like a good reason not to use it since it's expensive. :p
