@Englishbull

I'm in the U.S. I will PM you the product I mixed it in. As an entrepreneur myself I don't want to publicize something that could affect another mans business (i.e. I don't want him to get stuck with a bunch of lotion). If Pseudocatalase states otherwise I will post publicly.

I just tested for a reaction 5 minutes ago and the results are still positive (after 1.5 weeks).

Also, please note I'm able to use lotion because I cut my hair down to 1/4 inch. Once your hair gets into the 3/4 - 1+ inch long range I'm not sure lotion is the way to go (have to test for yourself). However, the product I used got much "softer" after I mixed the pseudocatalase so it spreads nicely.

***

The other seller of pseudocatalase on Ebay has a lot of "non-factual" information in his listing. The member here (Pseudocatalase) IMO has vastly superior knowledge. He clearly knows what he's talking about.

Mixing your own product is not difficult and it should not deter anyone from purchasing the powder. Most middle school science labs are more difficult. The hard part is finding a suitable carrier.

I can't afford buying many shampoos just to hope one of them will work. I could waste 50 bottles before finding something that might work. I really have zero experience when it comes to testing and experimenting, so I would definitely need more advice on what is likely a good shampoo to mix it with.

I will be very interested in what shampoo to use as a carrier too. I purchase the powder, and i am waiting to arrive. In my country (Portugal) there is neribas creme, but what i do with that mix? just soak the cream in the hair? sounds a bit awkward. would be so much easier with a shampoo or conditioner

If you are unsure if Neribas Creme (or any lotion) wil work for you then test it! A lot of it is dependent on the TYPE of hair you have. 1 inch of hair is different with every person. 

Get some lotion (before you shower) and spread it in your hair (remember the goal is to hit the scalp, so put it on your fingertips and go under the hair the best you can). If it spreads easily and it doesn't take a large amount to cover the head then use lotion. The powder makes about 10.5 oz of lotion which is quite a bit. Otherwise you have to test out various shampoos and conditioners.

Hey Guys,

I want to bring your attention to a blog from someone who has been recently treated by dr karin schallreuter who invented pseudocatalase.

http://simonsvitiligoblog.com/dead-sea-post-consultation-with-dr-karin-schallreuter/



According to her, Dr schallreuter recommends only 30 second narrow bad UV exposure 1-2 times every day.
I am starting to believe that the pseudocatalase we are using is not that aggressive in clearing H2O2 from the skin, and it might be safer approach to follow this 30 second routine.

@pseudocatalase, I know you read alot of schallreuter papers. Can you plz comment on her UV recommended routines.

@wisdom1st and @englishbull, yes, we think our product is better than the other listed on eBay (ours has a photo of a container of lotion and a container of shampoo). We have bought and tested the other, and it is the original pseudocatalase formulation by Schallreuter. It is the same as the first things we tested. However, Schallreuter went back to the drawing board and systematically studied different formulations, before publishing variants with 4-5 times more activity per gram. These are the variants we sell. As a result, it will retain activity 4-5 times longer. It will disproportionate 4-5 times more hydrogen peroxide. And we offer a money back guarantee if you cannot demonstrate this for yourself. 
  
Of course, if you are interested, buy both and do a simple hydrogen peroxide test.  I expect you will find exactly what we found.  As far as we can tell, all the other pseudocatalases available commercially are the original formulas, and not the "advanced" formula, and getting it in a lotion or shampoo in the USA is completely nontrivial outside of our efforts. 


Good luck to both of you in your search for repigmentation.

@Romi, that is the recommendation from Schallreuter, and she has published a lot of repigmentation in vitiligo using it. In reading the existing literature, we found no support for the idea that UVB was necessary to activate pseudocatalase. In other words, there are no studies we could find that compared pseudocatalase's activity with and without UVB activation. There are many positive studies on the impact of UVB on repigmentation processes. Taking all of the literature and integrating it, it makes sense to us that pseudocatalase gets rid of hydrogen peroxide in 5 minutes, which blocks the pigment loss. UVB stimulates repigmentation pathways. In vitiligo, combining pseudocatalase with longer term (10+ minutes) narrowband UVB only has a modest improvement over UVB alone. However, without any UVB, pseudocatalase will block the spread of vitiligo. Again, pseudocatalase blocks pigment loss. UVB expedites pigment return. These are biologically separate processes. 
  
As to her concerns about using UVB for longer periods, these concerns are not shared by dermatologists. UVB narrowband presents energy in only a limited range of wavelengths (about a 5 nm range). UV from the sun damages your skin over a range of about 200 nm. Accordingly, to get the same stimulation of repigmentation with narrowband UVB, you will cause 20-40 times less damage than using the sun for similar purposes. 

There is still a lot not known about repigmentation of hair, and in vitiligo. So if you ask the same question in 5 years, the answers could be a lot different. But this represents our best take on the existing scientific literature today.

I live in a country with no sunshine most of the time. Is it sufficient to spend some time outside?

Just read the Romi link and am concerned about the mention the Green Tea and spicy food is actually bad for vitligo/gray hairs (that is how i read it).  

Do you guys agree with this?  I drink a lot of Green Tea and am concerned...
