    After many years of frustration trying hundreds of supposed anti-redness moisturizers and products, I decided to create my own moisturizer based on the ingredients I noticed had a positive effect on my red skin. It has taken about a year, but I have come to a stage now where I believe I am close to my final formulation of ingredients.

    I would like to offer a free sample to members here to see if it has a positive effect on their facial redness. All you would need to do in return is post a review so I get feedback of its effectiveness.

    I can post the moisturizer free of charge to anywhere in the UK.


    Active Ingredients:

    Zinc Oxide: Whitening effect reducing redness, skin soothing, anti-septic, anti-microbial and fungicidal.

    Allatoin: Skin protectant, softens skin, keratolytic, causes rapid cell regeneration and proliferation and speeds up the natural processes of the skin by increasing the water content.

    Titanium Dioxide: Whitening effect reducing redness.


    Inactive ingredients:

    Aqua, Rice Bran Oil, Glycerine, Glycerol Mono Stearate SE, Cetyl Alcohol, Vitamin E, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.


    Please post a reply if you would be interested.

    Thanks,

    Brilliant John, welcome to the team! Please email me once I have completed the formulation I will email all participants and arrange delivery.

    Remember this product will be purely to cover the surface redness. For the flushing, please see my post on the "Update: Flushing and burning still much better. Left with super sensitive skin." thread.

    Hi Mate

    If the medication you are on stops your flushing even heated room flushing . How come your skin still gets irrtated with certain ingredients in creams etc etc ? .

    Wouldn't the medication stop that also?

    Hey Dave. Different circumstances I believe.

    The SSRI medication I take inhibits the neurological processes which cause a flush (it is still not yet understood how this is achieved).

    The irritating preservative ingredient caused a reaction when it was directly applied to my skin. However, it was very minimal. Just a very faint stinging sensation, no sign of redness or flushing. But I want to make it perfect! I'm sure i'll find a different preservative which doesn't cause this.

    All humans flush sometimes. The SSRI medication basically stops me flushing excessively.

    Thanks,

    realwork

    Hello John, yes I got your reply. I need to do a bit more experimenting to get a formula i'm happy with, then will send out the sample to you and the others who signed up.

    Default KPRF moisturizer

    Dear Realwork,

    I also suffer from KPRF, I'm 19 now and it reeeaally annoys me everyday.
    I've always had the red cheeks and people always comment about it.. That's horrible.
    If you will be able to send me a sample of the moisturizer also I would be very grateful.
    It amazes me how you build your own moisturizer for this. I mean that's really something man, and if it works, it could possibly be a big step in reducing this condition.

    I really appreciate all the effort you put in this!

    Thank you very much for the kind words Scotta. I agree, it is a horrible condition, and its the years and years of hating it and the hundreds of products I unsuccessfully tried which have put me on this path.

    Please send me an email to joeassange@gmail.com and when I (soon) have a finalized formula I will send an email out to all those who volunteered to try it.

    I will very soon post an update on my progress which has seen many positive developments.

    Very happy today. After the last changes I made, I think I have the final recipe:

    Active Ingredients:

    Allantoin: Skin protectant, softens skin, keratolytic, causes rapid cell regeneration and proliferation and speeds up the natural processes of the skin by increasing the water content.

    Titanium Dioxide: Whitening effect reducing redness.


    Inactive ingredients:

    Aqua, Fractionated Coconut Oil, Glycerine, Glycerol Mono Stearate SE, Cetyl Alcohol, Vitamin E, Liquid Germall Plus


    Changes:

    * Swapping Rice Bran Oil for Fractionated Coconut Oil. Both work fine, but fractionated coconut oil doubles the shelf life from one year to two years for a small increase in price.

    * Swapping preservatives Phenoxyethanol & Ethylhexylglycerin for Liquid Germall Plus. This is because Liquid Germall Plus is effective in much smaller concentrations & much more suitable for sensitive skin.

    * Removal of Zinc Oxide - Zinc Oxide just makes the mix far too tacky. The removal of Zinc Oxide also made me come to the realisation that:

    * Titanium Dioxide is the real superstar in this mix. Titanium Dioxide is a pigment that changes the colour of reflected or transmitted light. Thus, when you apply this moisturiser to your red skin, the Titanium Dioxide greatly reduces the appearance of redness by whitening it using light. I took a little time to figure out to best phrase this, its quite complicated.. But it really is effective.

    All those who have emailed me (or yet to email me, Scotta! send me a email: joeassange@gmail.com) - I will purchase some tubs to ship it out to you in soon.
