Heated at circa 60°C, then stored at room temperature.


For 100g of H2O:


  • 10g Pharmaceutical Grade Starch (Pure Rice Starch 40%, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Zinc Oxide [ZnO] 17%, Magnesium Stearate [Mg(C18H35O2)2], Silicon Dioxide [SiO2]);
  • 10g Agar Agar (Agarose [C24H38O19], Agaropectin);
  • 15g Glycerol [C3H8O3];
  • 4g Medium Grain Powdered Egg Shells (circa 94% Calcium Carbonate [CaCO3]); 

Materials AnnotationsAluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate is the aluminum salt of the reaction product of octenylsuccinic anhydride with starch, it is used as an anti-caking agent and a nonaqueous viscosity increasing agent; Zinc Oxide is an inorganic compound insoluble in water, used as a bulking agent and a colorant; Magnesium Stearate is an additive primarily used as a flow agent to prevent individual ingredients from sticking to each other; Silicon Dioxide is a natural compound used as an anti-caking agent; Agar is a jelly-like substance that forms the supporting structure in the cell walls of red algae (Rhodophyta); Glycerol is a simple polyol compound that is colorless, odorless, and non-toxic; Vinegar is an aqueous solution of acetic acid with a typical concentration of 5–8% acetic acid by volume; Calcium Carbonate is a natural  common substance found in rocks, and the main component of eggshells, seashells and pearls.
