Glycolic and Salicylic GOW

Postby manKman » Mon Jul 13, 2009 6:09 pm

So I bought some acid from garden of wisdom, and it was cheap.

I got 2 oz of 70% glycolic and 2 oz of salicylic powder for about five dollars each.

I was weary of getting it at first, but terri said their stuff was real. (Just a side note, tech grade glycolic is brown which = not on your face)

I made about 3oz of 50% glycolic with the 2oz of 70% and used it. Burns like it should, worked a treat. :D

Also, made me 16oz of 10% w/v salicylic toner for my stubborn pores. Salicylic has a different burn than glycolic. It creeps up and is not prickly, but it is deep. 10% is the magic threshold for salicylic and you can't use a heavy hand, but it eats up keratin like none other.

Be sure to use ethyl alcohol for diluting the salicylic powder.

Anyone else like garden of wisdom?

Hi ManKman,
I do. I buy acids and oils from them. I love argan oil. It is great for hair and skin.
