Yesterday I finally made my own mix using the ebay powder of pseudocatase (from the ebay seller participating here as pseudocatalase). I used Neribas as a carrier (bought it from ebay). I only had 30ML tube which is less than what is recommended by the pseudocatalase guy. So, I mixed half of the power solution with Neribas and the other half with emu oil. 


I might have by a mistake added slightly more water than was suggested by pseudocatalse to dissolve the powder before mixing with the cream.

Anyway, to make the story short, my Neribas-pseudocatalase ended up slighly extra liquidish than a typical cream. Nonetheless, when I did the hydrogen peroxide test, the bubbles started popping up much faster than using the cream pseudocatalase sells ... Alot faster, about four times I would say. Also there was a lot more bubbles too. 

The emu solution on the other had generated bubbles much slower. In fact, it looked like the emu oil formed a barrier against the H2O2 water like an oil spell. This makes me wonder why a lot of hair loss forums suggest it as a good carrier for their mixes. The body is full of water and a good carrier should mix easily with water.

Back to the point. The natural catalase interacts with H2O2 almost instantly and bubbles start popping out in almost no time. There must be an intrinsic reason why nature selection opted in for such a compound and if pseudocatalase is going to provide similar therapeutic effects, it must be as similar as possible in efficiency. 

For you  pseudocatalase, I think your search for a carrier and an optimal mix is far from over. My advise is that you shouldnt stop looking for a better formula. Your  pseudcatalase cream is slow in cleaning H2O2 on a clear surface which means it can only be even slower doing so inside the skin where there is a lot more barriers.  If I were you, I would find a way to import Neribas and make an original cream.

For now, I am going to continue my treatment but I am going to restrict my UV exposure to one minute or less per day. This way at least I give my inefficient catalase and pseudocatalase more time to fight properly and less work.

Yesterday I did the peroxide test ( after ten days) and the bubbles came up after a couple of minutes. Lots of small ones but very obvious ones as well. ui
Tomorrow I also have the results of my blood test. I'll let you know what they found. Of course my doctor said grey hair is irreversible but I guess that's normal;

I'm using a neutral shampoo named dermolin and let it in for five minutes twice a day. I hope someone can confirm that it's okay.


In the past I've used melanotan and for me it darkened the non greying hairs ( but not the grey ones). The odd thing was: it didnt darken my very blonde eyelashes ( and yes I've had them tinted but it also grows out very quickly)

My question is: I'm also applying the shampoo to my blonde ( non grey) lashes for five minutes twice a day and I wondered if I combine it with melanotan, then my body will produce more eumelanin, could the pseudocatalase activate the eumelanin in my eyelashes as well?

Maybe an even better option would be the combination with melitame because that product really increases MSH levels too. I'm actually eagerly waiting to try that melitame combo as well.

@Romi

Thick solutions will take longer to show the reaction because it takes longer for the oxygen bubbles to surface.

Hi @Romi, the speed of bubbling in the carrier is dependent on the viscosity. The hydrogen peroxide simply has to diffuse to the pseudocatalase. If you do a thin layer, the results will be different. The results are the same with Neribas cream. The biggest issue is the viscosity, and that is not so relevant when applied to the skin (the layer is thin). I would not recommend oil (emu or otherwise) as a carrier. The best carriers will have some type of surfactant in them (lotion and shampoo both do). The surfactant allows the carrier to penetrate natural oils on the skin, while still carrying the water soluble pseudocatalase. 

Hi @stefanovic, we don't yet have a clear impression of how pseudocatalase alters eumelanin/pheomelanin ratios. Some of our users see pheomelanin for the first time in a long time when they begin using pseudocatalase, but there is simply too little data to tell.

I had the results of my bloodwork. No deficiencies ( bad news in a way) but my adrenal glands levels were not that normal and need further examination ( I have been exposed to a tremendous amount of stress lately).  Of course my doctor said grey hair is irreversible but I think that's normal, isn't it?

Personally I think adding melitame could be beneficial for increasing eumelanin as it increases MSH, that why I'm really looking forward to Sartios' updates.

@stefanovic, high cortisol levels are bad for melanocytes. If that is brought under control, things should reverse. Just from memory I can tell you that corticol will cause melanocyte stem cells to differentiate into melanocytes and leave the hair follicle devoid of melanocyte stem cells (which means no new melanocytes, which means once they need replenishment your hair follicle is white). 

Good luck.

Thanks. I just did some research. About a month ago I started taking MSM supplements, now I read MSM increases cortisol ( could be a good thing when your levels are low)  Tomorrow I'll know the exact levels.

I hope it's a good thing to keep using the pseudocatalase ( I almost wanna order new powder so I wont run out of it)?

My doctor of course said grey hair damage is irreversible even with high cortisol. It could take months before I see a specialist. What can I do in the mean time?
