AP-Base (All Purpose Base) is used to dilute the strength of other All Purpose Creams.
As an example:
If one wanted an APC to be 25% of its original strength, one could look at the chart below on the column "Percentage of Original Strength" and look down to the row with 25%.
This 25% row lists 1 Part APC and 3 Parts Base. This means whatever amount (teaspoon, pea size, dime size) of APC that is used, you want to use 3 times that amount (teaspoon, pea size, dime size) of the Base.
If you know the desired strength, you can use the formula below to calculate the ratio of APC/Base.
Base Per APC = (APC%/ Desired %) - 1
If you are using APBP All Purpose Benzoyl Peroxide and want a 10% strength cream instead of the 25%, we can use the formula above to find out how much Base to use for each part of APBP.
APC% = 25% (Strength of APBP)
Desired% = 10% (The Strength We Want)
Using the formula above:
Base Per APC= (.25/.10) - 1 = (2.5) - 1 = 1.5
So this means, if we have a 25% strength APC and want a 10% strength mixture, we would use 1.5 times the amount of base as whatever APC we had and mix them together.
