I've been doing research on Miglyol 840 and I came across a thread in another forum regarding a Canadian lab that was using it. Many positive comments but it seemed a very small percentage were having adverse reactions:
The lab was said to switch to a 50/50 blend with sesame oil and now has decided to get rid of it entirely. That kind of reaction could be attributed to several variables and it seemed suspicious that they'd chose to discard a rather expensive (by quantity) carrier. I thought I'd bring it up just to see if anyone else has had a similar reaction before I try a batch myself.
I wouldnt doubt it man if it was some lab that tried to make it based on the ingredients and called it the same, ive got the exact ingredients to it as well but would never try scrapping it together and calling it the same you know.... like you guys mentioned, which is something I wanted to do with it, possibly mix it 50/50 with carrier of choice, but i bet they added EO to it for sure trying to make it even "better" anyhow id still be more then down to experiment with it as I know a few others that would like to as well. let me know...
