A good, prompt and attentive service. Thank you.
As you kindly advised me, I expect to wait a couple more weeks before I see a benefit from taking the pills.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant toothpast., 2 Nov 2014
Regarding that negative review please read this extract from Ingredient Watch published on YMC (Yummymummyclub) where you can read the whole article
:
1. Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate is a naturally derived preservative that is effective in both hydrophobic and hydrophilic solutions to prevent the growth of bacteria and microbes.

2. It is an inert salt that has one of the lowest reaction rates of any preservative used in cosmetics. It is distilled from pure glycine, which is one of the 20 amino acids found in the human body, and precursor to human protein development.

3. Unlike other preservatives, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate remains stable across a wide range of pH levels and temperatures, making it an ideal ingredient for cosmetics.

4. While it is true, it can break down into formaldehyde, it does not mean it will. There is the possibility, but unlike Urea—which will always break down into formaldehyde—Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate does not.

Let me explain:

1. Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate will break down when it is used at concentrations of 1% or higher in a cosmetic formula (98% of the time, or basically 1 in 1 application). The risk of reaction is real at this concentration.

2. The legal limit for use in cosmetics is a 0.5% concentration, and as the concentration drops, the reaction of formaldehyde release drops exponentially. At a 0.5% concentration, the compound will break down into formaldehyde 0.04% of the time (1 in 2,500 applications). A consumer would need to use a finished formula every day for 7 years before risk of reaction would be a concern.

3. Comparatively, Urea will release formaldehyde regardless of concentration.

4. Here is the next interesting thing: used in concentrations of 0.2-0.4%, the risk drops even further, to 0.005% of the time (or, basically, 1 in 20, 000 applications). The most common concentration used in the industry falls within this range.

Let me be clear as to what this means in real world application: a consumer would have to use the finished product, containing Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, every day for 57 years before there was a statistical risk of formaldehyde release reaction.

This is considered a statistical 0% chance of reaction.

In my opinion, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate does not meet the requirement to be included on a formaldehyde release reaction list.

I was expecting to have some itch-free nights. However, this is a good cream, but for me it's no better than the other Aveeno creams for the purpose purchased.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good cream. Shame about the packaging., 4 Oct 2014

A very good cream, but the pump dispenser is a disaster. With my skin problems I find that the small amounts produced by each pump are totally inadequate. 30 'pumps' puts a reasonably usable amount into a small jar for easy use. Then, when the container is still 1/3 full the pump stops because the cream is too thick to feed to the suction tube. Vigorous shaking produces some results, but then the container needs to be cut in half and reveals enough cream to last another week! This has to be transferred into another container with a lid. Good job I don't throw all my empty cream jars away!

These are lovely braces that look good and do a proper job. The clips are strong but easy to manage. My husband is very pleased with them. Highly recommended.
