    Question Supplement and Cosmetic Ingredients

    I've done brief searching on the forum regarding this topic, but haven't really found what I'm looking for. Often is asked what supplements or or what cosmetics are allowed while on HCG, and you will see a list sprout up what's okay to use. However, we all know supplements and especially cosmetics change so much this list is often outdated quickly. I'm looking for a list of ingredients I should be looking out for to stop using all together in P2. Obviously anything with fat, oil, starch, sugar, or something that sounds like food, but when I read ingredients lists I can't make heads of tails of it sometimes.

    Can anyone help with a list of NOT Safe ingredients in supplements in P2?

    Examples for Supplements is I often see ingredients like this: Gelatin, microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable stearic acid, vegetable magnesium stearate and calcium silicate in a lot of the supplements I take. Are these ingredients safe?

    Also another Supplement example from my Doctor's Best Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM plus Hyaluronic Acid from Other Ingredients: Gelatin (capsule), rice powder, magnesium stearate (vegetable source).
    The rice powder leads me to believe it's not safe so I don't take during P2.

    Another example from other ingredients from a supplement I take: Other Ingredients: Gelatin, vegetable magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, microcrystalline cellulose and croscarmellose sodium.


    On to Skincare and Makeup. I see Dimethicon and Beeswax alot. I also wonder about anything ending in the word glycerin

    SKINCARE:
    Ingredients list: Water, Glycerin, Isopropyl Palmitate, Petrolatum, Dimethicone, Cetyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Polyacrylate, Cetearyl Olivate, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sorbitan Olivate, Fragrance, Carbomer, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hydroxide, Blue 1

    Ingredient list: Water, dimethicone, glycerin, cetearyl olivate, polyacrylamide, sorbitan olivate, phenoxyethanol, dimethicone/vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer, synthetic beeswax, C13-14 isoparafin, dimethiconol, carbomer, dimethicone crosspolymer, chlorphenesin, laureth-7, sodium hyaluronate, ethylhexylglycerin, C12-14 pareth-12, sodium hydroxide

    Ingredient List: Ingredients
    Active Ingredient: Salicylic Acid 0.5% (acne medication) Inactive Ingredients: Water, dicaprylyl ether, cetearyl, alcohol, glycerin, neopentyl glycol diethylhexanoate, dimethicone, methyl gluceth-20, aluminum starch octenylsuccinate, ceteth-10 phosphate, dicetyl phosphate, steareth-20, steareth-2, neopentyl glycol diisostearate, sodium benzoate, fragrance, sodium hydroxide, disodium EDTA, santhan gum, magnesium aluminum silicate, BHT, citrus grandis (grapefruit) fruit extract.

    Makeup:
    Inactive Ingredients: Water, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Butylene Glycol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Butylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Glycerin, Neopentyl Glycol Diethylhexanoate, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, PEG-30 Dipolyhydroxystearate, Pentylene Glycol, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Polymethyl Methacrylate, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Phenoxyethanol, Magnesium Sulfate, Sorbitan Isostearate, Beeswax, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Aluminum Hydroxide, Stearic Acid, Dimethicone, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium

    Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Isononyl Isononanoate, Silica, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Isododecane, Phenoxyethanol, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Cyclohexasiloxane, Tocopheryl Acetate, Fragrance (Parfum), Mica, Iron Oxides (CI 77492), Limonene, Iron Oxides (CI 77491), Iron Oxides (CI 77499), Triethoxycaprylylsilane, BHT


    Okay, I could go on and on with listing ingredients, but as you can see it can get crazy overwhelming to do that. So, if I had more of list of ingredients to look for that I means NOT SAFE, DO NOT USE! I think the could more beneficial.

    Thanks in advanced !

    Supplement fillers are not a problem unless a lot of oil is used (ex: fish oil capsules). Tiny oil capsules like vitaminD are not a problem and can be used.

    Rice or other starch fillers are not a problem, as small amounts of starch are already included in the protocol in the melbas or grissinis. Most other fillers are just fiber or silica and also fine for P2.

    Glycerine, petroleum jelly, and mineral oil are fine for cosmetics.

    Essential oils are fine, as they are not really oils, but essences that are distilled from the original product.

    Thanks for the reponse. How do you feel about cosmetics that include Beeswax?

    Do you think oil used in massages are not safe? I see most people say avoid doing this activity in P2.

    Bees wax is not prohibited in supplements. Massages are warned against in the protocol, both for the oil component and for the disturbance it causes to the subcutaneous fat.
