I got "35%" from nightingale pharmacy in south lake, after using it or a few weeks and having no improvements, I put 1 drop on my skin, knowing it should oxidize, nothing at all. So I ordered H2O2 test strips, and after testing a diluted solution I've determined I was sold 3% I'll be heading back to nightingales and demanding they refund my money. Will be trying a supplier on eBay.

Thanks, SOR! Nightingales will have another customer. I came to this site looking for a source of 35% food grade HP. Didn't know it could be used for keratosis, so I'll target that with it along with the virus.

I got 35% from Nightingales Pharmacy, South Lake. Ask Bret, the pharmacist. If you explain what you want to do, he will make it for you in 10 minutes.

Hello Bringstone, try giving Friendlies chemist Fremantle a call.

In Perth West Australia I contacted chemists incl. Friendlies in Leederville and Subiaco - they do not stock food grade - just the usual preserved stuff. They recommended Sigma Chemicals Balcatta and yes they have it on their books but only in 25kg lots - POA - but you will not get much change from $250.00 from what I could make out.

i havent used any extremes yet still researching H202 kind of afraid of that so trying the more natural approach first. i begin using witch hazel about week ago for a fungus on my face and discovered the SK has started to fade and some have just fallen off. I am just amazed at the witch hazel results although it is a slow process and i am a very impatient girl. any other advice would be appreciated

You were supposed to dilute the "hp" down to 3%. It can be very dangerous any higher. The pain you expirenced are called the "herx" it is from an edotoxin from bacteria dying off. people can expirence this even at hp 3% solution ,just stop for a few days drink lots of water to help expel those hurtful endo toxins then continue on with treatment to ensure you kill them all off. It helps to add an 1/8 of tsp of salt to 2cups of water 1hour before eating breakfast(only if you don't feel dehydrated continue to drink much water) to detoxify the endo toxins -don't take salt if you have high blood pressure.
while I'm at it vinegar helps with keratosis 1cup of white vinegar to a half bath or full bath and soak for 30 or more minutes scrub if you like leaves skin fresh and suprisingly soft Then apply an ever so light layer of coconut oil Vinegar -don't over do it try a bath once a week

I used 35% solution on my skin.... undiluted.... to treat keratosis... I did this twice over 1 week..... started feeling nautious.... Thought I'd just picked up a really bad tummy bug/virus or food poisoning......(as I'd been on a long flight from australia - nyc that stopped over Seol).... started to feel a bit better after about 2 weeks.....used the solution again as had no idea this may be causing my illness the next day I was nauseous again..... just have no energy & feeling sick in the stomach.... I'm pretty sure I'm this is from the H2o2. How can I find out?
