Spot the acne cream
 
So when I bought Hannah in 2018, I read about using benzoyl peroxide 10% cream for treating stains. I've used it a fair bit and it works really well. However, if I look for it online now it seems to have dropped off the face of the Earth. Is this now a banned substance or something? Does anyone know where to get it?

Could be Brexit. Try Sallycillic acid it's an alternative to benzoyl peroxide for treating acne, both unblock pores. Sallycillic acid is what's in aspirin they sell it as acne cream too. It's more natural too it's found in willow bark for e.g. and a bunch of other plants if you know your meadowsweet from your sheep sorrel.

I'm not actually trying to treat acne, it's for stain removal :D as far as I know, TPE girls aren't prone to zits.

Boots and places like that stock 5% gel, rather than 10% cream. I have no idea if it works the same way with stains.

I can't find any 10% stuff aside from importing it from the US.

I read the same thing ages ago and was thinking I should probably pick some up.

I have bought several tubes over the times, I hadn't realised that it was so difficult now to get hold of until you mentioned it, I would always search Oxy 10 and various other brands would come up not so expensive, now I see there is jack shit available. I did half read something last year about it be available from behind the counter at chemist's these days, maybe worth asking in Boots or a good chemist.

It seems like Acnecide 5% w/w gel is now the most readily available, which is what I was given when I asked for some over the counter at my local chemist last year. It still made short work of some nasty inky stains she had, but some of them took more than one application. Might be an idea to try a dab on the soles of her feet first, as that worrying post from Indigo about tpe composition on TDF a few years ago springs to mind. Don't know how much of that still applies these days, but better safe than sorry :eek:

Matt35uk 20-09-2021 09:34 AM

Well, since I'm not actually trying to treat acne, I'm dubious about buying some completely different chemical composition just because it's also an acne cream.

It's just a real bummer that the stuff that I know works doesn't seem to be available, nor any information as to why.

Try that. never used it, but its what you are asking for.

The Key here is Peroxide. You're not removing the stain, your bleaching it lighter, which is fine and dandy :)

Not certain that's entirely accurate, Mr K. I remember when I left it to treat for a few hours, the staining actually purged from the surface of the tpe like blackheads, which I was then able to wipe away with a cloth, leaving it peachy pink underneath.
I would have taken pictures if I had thought of it. I will if I ever have need of it again :tu

Interesting. Not disputing, but Benzoyl Peroxide is a bleaching agent

Extract from https://www.bioclarity.com/blogs/cle...nzoyl-peroxide

Benzoyl Peroxide as a Bleaching Agent

Benzoyl peroxide is a harsh solution that can cause bleaching. It may cause your skin to look whiter, and can affect the color of your hair (including your eyebrows) if it comes into contact with the same strands regularly and repeatedly. Benzoyl peroxide can also bleach clothing and other materials.

Perhaps something contained within the other 95% which also draws out impurities? Who knows, I didn't pay as much attention to the ingredients as maybe I should have, I just gave it a test and then got to business.
It worked really well for me and is readily available, so I would recommend it, just BE SURE to do a test first. I have zero reservations about using it again should I need to, and that being the case, I will definitely document the whole thing start to finish ;)

Thanks but that's coming from America. Which might be fine, but is why I'm asking if it's a banned substance or something now. It's one thing getting locked up for importing the wrong doll, but importing the wrong spot cream for your doll might be a step too far ;)

Cream
 
I have used Oxy10 a few times and it was good at getting the stains out but has gone up a lot in price. Last year tried Acnecide 5% from a UK Pharmacy, afraid it took long time to get stain out and 10 cost each time as had to get 2. Went to eBay again couple months ago where I purchased Rugby Acne Med 10 from America 8.36? with free shipping came within a week and it did what I wanted it to as had red stain on a doll shoulder. So I will be buying more as cheapest I can find with 10% ingredients. Nail and eyelash glue 4.99 just bought from Lovedoll and tpe glue which looks like a nail polish with brush from Doll?
That's where I get mine from for any newbie's who want to do repairs.
