Tonifromafar posts on this site for the first time, and has a link to an Ebay web site that may be the most interesting read on the subject of pseudo catalase since the time the news broke back in May.  Information is shown on the post that verifies a purchase was made from Viagard, yet it was unnecessary to do so. Would it be wrong if Tonifromafar were the seller on that Ebay web site?  I for one would say no because the link is relevant at this time with regards to where this forum is at. There is no pressure applied to purchase, and the only marketiing is within the link itself, not from the post.

I have ideas and thoughts about that link, but I'd rather not share them at this time because I will gt too lengthy.  I hope everybody can view this link and share their thoughts. To this point, nobody has come forth with absolute surety that Depo works, and it may be time for some of us to explore other avenues.

wisdom1st, I'm glad you to suspect that I could be that seller in the US trying to get some hype about his product, that means that my English is somehow convincing enough (I'm trying to put a smily here but it doesn't work). Seriously, I found that link in a Spanish thread about the same topic ( http://foro.ganarpelo.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=29223&sid=cdc15969f4b358d08bc8ebaea5552cac&start=160 ) but that forum is pretty lousy in comparisson with this one (by the way, one the guys in that forum says that Depo Melanin is workin for a buddy of his after two months something of using it).
 
About the link offering the powder, I've found a fundamental flaw, indications speak about mixing the powder with water but the original recipe includes some distilled water to dissolve the powder and then Disodium EDTA (if I'm not mistaken to be able to penetrate the cellular tissue).
I'm trying to gather information about the availability of the Disodium EDTA but I've found it to be cheap in a crystal form and it all seems to be a bit over my head by now.

Received recent order of two bottles. New blue labels vs old white label with black text and new more gel-like vs original watery consistency of product. The better viscosity makes application much easier with less waste.

Accumetrics (=Viaguard) boasts a $12 fee for shipment outside North America. That would be a total of $39 for one bottle. Is this the deal that got your parcel snubbed at the spanish custom office? amazon US ask for $95 (=71 euros) and Amazon UK 106.5 euros. So, which would be the safest/cheapest (and it's not Spain for me but France)

(The right answer might be: don't let me waste my money)


France is a lot easier to ship into and I recommend you simply try it. The Spanish custom agents are [word_that_probably_would_get_moderated] if you get my drift. They just like to mess with you because they can - probably they're bored or something. Many of my packages (with innocuous products) have been returned since I moved here - it's a pain. England is the best route to go - I actually have re-shipper there which routes my packages into Spain.

My hair started going grey before I reached 30.  I dyed it my natural dark chestnut brown for 25 years.  UGH! 
Today, I love the compliments I get, being liberated from dye and constant touch-ups, but mostly - it is very natural.  I'm one of the lucky women who go grey and have a bright white in front and darker contrast toward the back.  It was so difficult to get through the grow out stage, but getting "low-lights" put in my my colorist really helped.  The grey also changed my color pallet.  I used to wear browns and off whites, but no more.  I have to put color on my face so I don't look washed out.  That's part of the problem with people looking older with grey hair... they don't adjust their color pallet or their make-up to compensate.  Men don't have to worry about this too much, they simply look more distinguished.     I say, "Embrace the Grey"!

I'm 40 and have about a dozen grey hairs on each side of my head, no big deal, not even worth thinking about. . .
Yet I'm intensely interested in the significance of grey hair as an outward signal of the bigger picture of it being one manifestation of the cellular aging going on inside.  Of that unseen factor it represents, I'm actually quite obsessed about grey hair.  I have zero interest in dyeing away the grey hair, no matter how grey it gets, but it reminds me daily of my quest to be a part of the push for greater life extension technologies.

Sorry, I am new to the site and don't mean to be an intrusion.  I was curious if anyone had any familiarity with using pseudocatalase to treat gray hair.  I am a vitiligo patient that has started to compound the product for personal use on the skin.  However, a colleague of mine began using it for his gray hair and it appears to be working for that as well.  I have started offering it for others on ebay, because from my earlier experiences compounding pharmacies were charging me an arm and a leg.  However, I don't want to waste my time or others in compounding it if it is not a viable long term treatment.  Any insight from anyone that is familiar with the product for hair use would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks, I will provide the link below if anyone is interested in taking a look...

tonifromafar - I have a suspicious mind, so I through that out there. I really did figure it was unlikely you were the seller.  I was not trying to be offensive, so I apologize if I you took it that way.

With regards to the Ebay link:  
The seller has 100% positive feedback stemming from over 300 business transactions. You'd need insider help at Ebay to make that up. No doubt, this seller comes off as honest. He (she)  never states that the product will bring back lost pigment to hair follicles. Although the seller has had feedback of the product working on vitiligo, nobody has replied back showing proof that it works for gray hair reversal. Basically, this sellers marketing points are that one will get more bang for their buck, and it is in its pre-mixed state. Once pseudocatalsae is mixed, the onset toward decomposition of the formula begins. It sounds logical.

I am going to reiterate some of the things I posted about PC-KUS. PC-KUS has been around a long time, and has been known to work on vitiligo dating back to at least 2003. It's interesting how the news this past May states that 'a "modified"  PC-KUS will bring back lost pigment to hair follicles. What's great, is that it also works for vitiligo'.  Vitilgo takes the back seat in this statement. Why? Maybe because the original PC-KUS, patented in 1995, works fine for vitiligo, but not so good for gray hair. What was "modified" from the original PC-KUS formula? Maybe this modification that Dr Shallreuter and her team of scientists have made is still under tight wraps.

For the record, I had read that the makers of PC-KUS have stated that their product has a 12 month shelf life.

For those using Depo over the last 12 weeks would it not make sense to do a test for activity?

from the ebay seller

"So how can you test the activity of a pseudocatalase product?
This is actually very simple to do at home!
Take a tiny little bit of the product you wish to test, and place it on a clean plate or clean Teflon pan..
Next take a clean eyedropper and use it to place a drop of inexpensive supermarket purchased hydrogen peroxide on the product sample you want to test.
Catalase activity (as you should expect from any pseudocatalase product) exists if, and only if, there is a production of small bubbles when you place your hydrogen peroxide drop in contact with any product. You may also see the product begin to turn a brownish color over time. Do not expect lots of bubbles (store bought hydrogen peroxide is only 3%), but over several minutes look for very small bubbles that grow larger with time on the surface of the sample being tested.

If you look at the pictures above that accompany this listing (forgetting the Einstein picture for now), you'll find two pictures of pseudocatalase cream, made from the product being sold in this listing, after it was added to an ordinary skin cream. A few drops of a 3% store bought hydrogen peroxide was gently dropped on top of a small sample of the cream. After approximately half an hour it is easy to see that oxygen bubbles are clearly visible in, and on, the cream, but no bubbles are visible within the hydrogen peroxide that is not in contact with the cream. This is proof of the catalase activity within the cream, and  just as important, the lack of catalase activity away from the cream."
