Digest for the new blog for May 10 to May 18, 2018

I'm still writing up a storm over on the new blog, sharing more than 10,000 words a week or the equivalent of 50 pages of a novel, because I'm having such fun!

Yeah, I know I said I wasn't doing the digests any more, but Raymond's been helping with the tedious copying and pasting of links, so I can resume again! 

I'm so in love with cucumber, I couldn't stop writing about it, so join me on the new blog for a few more formulas....

Formulating on a budget using cucumber! 
and
make a lovely cucumber-y facial lotion.

I'm trying to create a series of descriptive words we can use for our ingredients and products, so join me for that discussion and share your thoughts!

Before we launched into the members' exclusive series on liposomes, I updated this post on the biology and chemistry of our skin. I have a lot more to add, but needed to start somewhere!

Join me for some more fun with actives & cosmeceuticals: Vitamin C revisited as this'll come up a lot over the next few weeks as we have fun with liposomes and other facial products.

Oh, and join me for Emollients you will love: Palm and palm kernel oil as we start profiling and formulating with some new harder oils and butters I've discovered over the last 18 months, with tucuma butter and murumuru coming up soon.

We're ditching Patreon now that Raymond has created this new membership system on the blog, so when you see "members", this refers to either Patreon subscribers or members of the blog. For now, the rewards remain the same, but given that Patreon takes at least 12% and offers no support unless I tweet directly at the CEO showing my income, things will probably change in the very near future.

For members, join us for this fun new series as well as the upcoming duplicated formula and more Q&A. (Considering you can access the subscribers' feed for $1 US a month, seems like a bargain to me!)

Liposomes: Introduction to liposomes and other concepts

Liposomes: What are they and how to use them?

Liposomes: Vitamin C in a gelled facial serum

Liposomes: Vitamin C in a light facial moisturizer

Hope to see you over there!
