Debi Johnson’s family has been using a recipe from a grandmother in China that’s been making creams for more than a century.
Ms Johnson, 31, used to make cosmetics in her family’s local chemist shop and the family’s recipes have always been based on local ingredients.
“We are very fortunate to have such a grandmother and she was able to teach us that we can’t just use anything, we have to take the time to do our research and really do our own research,” Ms Johnson said.
“That is the secret to all of the things we make.”
The family’s first attempt to make Botox-powered creams using local ingredients, Ms Johnson’s sister-in-law, Jennifer Burdick, said she was so impressed with the results they were happy to share them with News.co.nz.
“The first thing we did was to take samples and compare them to some of the ingredients in the ingredients list,” she said.
Ms Burdack’s recipe is based on the old Chinese herbal medicine known as yin-yang, which is used for its antiseptic properties and antibacterial properties.
“This herbal medicine has been used for a long time, especially in China, to treat tonsils and tonsils infections,” Ms Burdacker said.
“There is also a lot of research that suggests that it can also help treat ulcers.”
Ms Biddick’s recipe involves a mixture of soybean oil, water and watermelon seeds.
The family was able, after extensive research, to find a recipe for Botox that was based on an herbal medicine from China.
Ms Kelly’s grandmother made the first batch in the 1950s, and she still makes it for the children.
“She has a lot to do in the kitchen, so we have our family cook for her,” Ms Kelly said.
The recipe is used in many of the creams, which are also available online and in stores such as Ulta, Boots and Target.
The family now makes their own version of the botox formula, and Ms Kelly’s family can sell it in stores.
This recipe is made using soybean and watermelons, but it’s also available in a range of other ingredients.
The recipes are also being sold at drugstores, pharmacies and supermarkets.
In a separate case, a family from Queensland was able just last week to get a prescription from a doctor in the US for a creamsulin called Botox A.
The doctor said it would not be approved for use in Australia until further research was done, so the family did not have the time or the money to get it.
“I think the doctors in the States are just not aware of the history of botox in Australia, and they just don’t know what to do with it,” Ms Miller said.
But the Botox makers say they are confident they can get approval from the US Food and Drug Administration for use on the human body.
“They will have to look at the ingredients, they’ll have to ask a doctor,” Ms Martin said.
It was not immediately clear how the US drug company was going to process the approvals.
