Sorry for the silence...

Sorry for the silence over the last few days, but I was bested by a tiny baby whom I carried all over town the other day. My hip is killing me to the point of being bed- or couch-bound, and I can't sit up long enough to type.

I'm typing this from my iPhone, and although I'm a pretty fast typist, it's hard to link and such from the Blogger app. Plus, posting while on painkillers can only result in embarrassment!

I'll get to your comments and questions in the order in which they're received, so please have patience with me. I would normally review the week's comments and messages on a Saturday morning, but I spent that hopped up on muscle relaxants, and couldn't get to them.

Any e-books for which you donate will be sent out when I get the notifying email. 

Thanks!

Oops, I forgot to add that I was mentioned in this article in Wired! Woo and hoo!

Hi Susan!

Do you have any idea what the fudge "oxygenation" or "oxygenated" means in regards to topical skin care?? I've seen it pop up in facial treatments and a bunch of products recently, but the companies I've Emailed have been unable to explain what they mean by those words :(

Please help, I just want to be an informed consumer!

First off: feel better! I have been avidly devouring your blog for the last few months and am experimenting with forays into DIY world. Secondly: I bought a powder described as "dimethicone petrolatum" - I saw a DIY where you mix it in with face lotion to create a primer. I can't find any information on how you use it! I've been searching your blog for any information on this powder but haven't found it (possibly due to user error!) and was wondering if you had heard of it. I love your blog and wanted to say thank-you in advance. Sincerely, Joey

Hi, Just wanted to say that your site is awesome (all caps & exclamation marks). I am currently working my way through your previous posts and chem links. I'm a PA student with a background in research and an interest in burns and wound management (not the typical site visitor I guess), and I've been scouring pubmed and the internet for info on skin chemistry. I found your site when I was first diving into water activity and again when i got stuck on glycerol & sorbitol. So far you are by far the best single point-source that I've found. And thanks to you I've already found a paper that had been alluding me for weeks.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to do this. I will definitely be back. I hope you answer new questions added to your old posts. I'm really interested in learning more about gels (what is the diff between a really viscous fluid and a gel), thickeners, and humectants.

See you soon,
-ryas

Susan,
Did you have a baby?
I must be confused, and it serves me right for not checking your postings in a while. Sorry for not keeping up, had too many jobs and hats to wear lately, and congrats on having a baby. I am thrilled for you. I think.

Hi Pamela. No, just searing back and leg pain! But it's getting better
