MSM in skin care formulations is very effective. It is easy to formulate with and add to your natural skin care products. MSM is also known by MethylSulfonylMethane or DimethylSulfone. MSM is an organic sulfur compound and found in plants, beverages, and food and in the atmosphere in marine areas. MSM is used many applications; one is in skin and body care products.
MSM is well known for use in products for muscle pain and arthritis. MSM gel is a popular product. MSM gel with claims made for using it for muscle pain or arthritis is considered an OTC (over the counter) drug and is under the FDA OTC regulations. In skin care products, MSM is used to support collagen, enhance elasticity and tone the skin.
MSM is a great addition to add to facial moisturizer or cream formulation. MSM is water-soluble crystals and it is added to the water phase of the procedure for making, manufacturing the skin care product.
I formulated the Regenerating and Firm Skin Cream with MSM and the formulation is available in the Professional Natural Skin Care Course. Regenerating and Firm Skin Cream is one of my favorite facial creams with noticeable skin results.
