While we cover the details on how to make your own rapamycin skin cream (see
this post that covers rapamycin hair / scalp serum as well as skin cream), and also this user’s experience making the DIY rapaycin skin cream.
But some people would prefer to just purchase the pre-made formula. A compounding pharmacy has started offering this (I know of this one, but if there are others, please post the information on them).
You need to first get a prescription from your doctor for this rapamycin skin cream.
Here is the information on the product and the pharmacy:
Sirolimus 0.1% cream/ointment 60g $75 for all rapamycin FB members- mention code FB to receive discount. RX Required.

I wonder if something more accessible, like meclizine, would have similar effects if made into a skin cream? I have tried One Skin for months and I really don’t see any effect. This would be a slightly different approach.
According to Dr. Green make your own at a much better price by obtaining rapamycin capsules, usually about $3 per 3 mg.
Open up a capsule and mix it with 3.5 ounces of Aquaphor ointment.
According to Dr. Green, 3 mg to a jar of 99 mg of Aquaphor (3.5 ounces) is a 003% concentration.
The main issue with the Aquafor method is that it has the consistency of Vaseline, and who wants to smear Vaseline all over his face?
Transcutol is a much better solvent for rapa IMO. Also called ethoxydiglycol, available at
lotioncrafter.com and other sources
I would worry about consistency and dispersion of rapa particles in highly viscous ingredients at room temp.
I get crushed (Nano pulverizer) generic rapamycin filtered through a 80 μm mesh then dissolved in ethanol (Everclear 190 proof is easy to buy). I go to heated white petrolatum (Vaseline is easy to buy) at 40 degrees C with an industrial rotating mixer (2500 rpm) and then add rapamycin solution for 2 min then continue at room temperature for 8 min while reducing rpm to get ointment.
Why do they not put the cost up front?
They want to collect information and give you the cost at the end, this is NFG.
zenpatient it is there ($140/month)
So my powder of rapamycin is not very fine, is that okay if there are pellets? Or does it need to be dissolved? How do I make it more fine/dissolved?
I’m using it topically for angiofibromas on my nose.
Anyone using this? It’s 0.2% rapa 0.2% ECGC. My doc prescribed me 0.01% rapa cream for $175/bottle. Any sense of which would be preferable?
I have used Carefirst Pharmacy of New Jersey for 2 years.
It comes as .2 percent sirolimus/rapamycin. Use it on my neck costs about $180… lasts 2 months. Works for what it’s worth.
I think the higher concentration is better… .2 and even the extra Green Tea EGCG might be good too.
daft, I searched for the percent of Rapamycin and ECGC, but could not find it. Do you have a link to where it is? Thanks.
They show percentage concentration once you complete the survey for the product.
Any reports of the healthspan topical? Anyone using it with good results? How long to see the results? Any info would be helpful.
How long till you received it?
