    Thanks for the pointer to this. Nice Web site they have.

    You write: “What’s keeping us from recording those classes and making them available as podcasts, along with a downloadable handout of notes for the class and a bibliography?”

    I've been thinking about this a lot recently, and I'm not sure that's what I want to do. Online learning is different from face-to-face learning; face-to-face classes don't necessarily translate well online. I've experimented with both — materials designed specifically for online learning, and materials from face-to-face teaching that I simply put online — and most often the materials made specifically for online learning seem to work best.

    Part of the problem, though, is assessing what learners actually learn from online learning. When I do face-to-face learning, I always build in assessment so I have feedback on how well I'm teaching, and how well learners are performing. While there are good ways to build in assessment to online learning, I've come to feel that it's not enough to simply place face-to-face teaching materials up online — you have to be intentional about including assessment, because if you don't, you just don't know if learners are learning what you want them to learn.

    This is something I'm still actively working on developing, so these should be considered merely preliminary thoughts.

    Why does my face cream contain on the ingredients list: “citric acid and/or sodium hydroxide”?
    It’s on a tube of benzoyl peroxide that I’m using at the moment. Doesn’t it seem strange, considering the two ingredients are so very different but can still be substituted for one another?

    • The mom says:

      Actually they aren’t being substituted one for the other at all. When they produce a product for facial use, they have to adjust the final pH to match that of human skin. One or the other will be used depending on if the batch is alkaline or acid, to counter balance the entire batch. So either one or the other would have been used, but not both. If the batch was alkaline, they would likely have used the citric acid, and if it were acidic they would use the sodium hydroxide. It’s not like you didn’t have garlic powder so you used a clove of garlic. It’s so you don’t chemically burn your skin with a product that’s too acid or too base.

      I would ask your doctor, but in the meantime i would say no. Your skin is a organ and anything you put on it is absorbed into the bloodstream so I would think it would reach the baby.

    I want to make a face cream with the following active ingredients: octinoxate, zinc oxide, and dimethicone (silicone), but I cannot find a website that sells them all. Does one exist?

    What is the difference in ingredients in a face cream vs. a body cream?

    • Shug says:

      The skin on your face is more delicate than the skin on your body. Body creams are much heavier and oilier. The facial creams are more light-weight, non-comedogenic, non-greasy and designed for delicate facial skin.
