Hi, this is not skincare related but as I was googling to find a solution, this forum kept coming up so you seem to be the experts on thickening up solutions.

I have a mix of magnesium chloride, acetyl carnitine and MSM, all dissolved in distilled water. I would like to thicken the solution up so it can be more conveniently applied.

What would be the best way to go about achieving this? I have to avoid any substances that have an effect on the endocrine system.

Hi,
I guess that by "applied" you mean topically? If so I can suggest the basic glycerin for it to be more like a serum, or even aloe vera. Wait for others to chime in as I use very simple products.
If it is for internal use maybe something considered healthy like agar-agar seaweed, I was thinking also of Kudzu powder as a thickener but this could affect the endocrine system.
What are the percentages, and what is the use you're going to make of the mixture? Curious.
Thanks.

Hi Atester, thanks very much for replying. I will give glycerin a shot. Yes a topical and if it is thicker then it stays in place a bit easier when applying.

The use is a bit of a sensitive topic, it is to treat a fibrotic condition affecting the penis.

Hi, so where did you get the recommendation for the ingredients? Trying to work out how they would help with scar tissue used topically. I've used magnesium chloride topically for skin absorption to aid sleep (which turns into more like an oil when mixed with wáter) and I ever so often take MSM internally and L-Carnitine. How does the topical application supossed to work? Sorry for so many questions, specially interested in the acetyl carnitine as I'm not familiar with it.
In any case, maybe better for the mixture to be in a spray form rather than a serum or cream like form, the important fact is to get the ingredients to be delivered into the skin, never heed the texture.
