MSM Creams

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is an Organic Sulphur which is a small molecule that easily penetrates the skin layers. Whilst MSM is predominantly known as crystals which are consumed orally, there has been substantial research and evidence to demonstrate that MSM Creams produce amazing anti-ageing results and healthier, more radiant looking skin.

Methyl Sulfonyl Methane makes skin cells more permeable for vitamins and vitamins to go into cells and for pollutants to leave the cells. This process produces healthier skin cells, which go on to produce other healthy cells, improving the cellular structure and visible condition of the skin.

Organic Sulphur is also helps in creating strong collagen bonds and preventing cross linking of collagen bonds, which appear as scars. Using MSM creams topically can assist the fading of existing scarring through the formation of healthier cells, which also softens and smooths the skin. Stronger collagen bonds smooth the appearance of wrinkles and wrinkles, providing great anti-ageing properties.

As sulphur is a natural anti-inflammatory, Methylsulfonylmethan Creams applied topically can calm skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and eczema. The redness associated with these ailments is due to aggrevation of the skin. Creams with Methylsulfonylmethane are able to aid skin tone in appearing more even and less angry, as well as reducing pain caused by inflammation.

When looking for a MSM Cream, it is recommended to shop for a cream that contains a minimum of 10% MSM for the best results. Many skin care companies will list Methylsulfonylmethane as an ingredient while only including miniscule quantities. Unfortunately even if only 1% is used, these companies are able to list it on their product as being used. To avoid this marketing technique, you can call the manufacturers direclty or look at the order that the ingredients are written. The predominant ingredients are written first. Therefore if MSM is listed towards the end of the list, it is worth considering how active the product may be.
