Almond Oil?

i was reading on the steroid thread about using Almond Oil as a transdermal carrier. Now, i know that injection is THE way to go, but after a week of serious searching, i couldnt find one study to back this up, the poster said that supposedly it screams through the skin, but i havent been able to find anything to back this up. does anyone out there know anything about this or could point me in the right direction? any and all help would be appreciated. thanks

this is the best to use for transdermal:
1-DMSO: Dimethyl Sulfoxide this used for a transdermal carrier. Dimethyl Sulfoxide is a clear liquid known for its ability to permeate living tissue.
It is believed to help stimulate cellular processes.
2- PHLOGEL- a lechithen organogel that is a penetrating vehicle for topical/transdermal delivery of therapeutical agents, possesing elegant cosmetic and mosterizing properties.

i hope this helps. what are you trying to do?

the DMSO and PHLOGEL are good suggestions. Might try the PHLOGEL before the DMSO, though. Know some guys in college who used DMSO with fina (afraid of needles), and had problems with skin irritation and a “garlic” odor. Kind of funny seeing them wrapped in saran wrap whining about the burning from the DMSO.

thanks for the info… whats the bioavailibily of phlgel? im assuming it cant be any more than 50%. IF and WHEN i get to the level of using ill be using injectible, i have no problems with with needles, but my friend is HIGHLY phobic… i was just looking for alternitive methods. and hell be using tren, from finaplix-h
