There are studies and research information available to read on herbal and chemical ingredients commonly found in cosmetics that are very often actually ESTROGENIC: such as grapefruit seed extract, grape seed extract, wild yam, soya, lavender, tea tree oil, fragrances, parabens, phytoestrogens, carcinogens and xenoestrogens - which INCREASE Estrogen.
Natpro cream contains none of these such ingredients. In many products, although it states that the product is natural, actually contains chemicals.
Natpro contains only vegetable substances. No animal has suffered or will ever suffer because of its production or use.
Natpro progesterone cream does not contain any toxic substances - such as growth hormones which are found in today's animal products. You are protected.
The progesterone in Natpro is identical to the progesterone your body makes. 'Progesterone Ph. Eur. USP JP' is derived principally from stigmasterol, a steroidal sapogenin.
Don't confuse Natpro progesterone cream with a bean or YAM "extract". Such extracts DO NOT CONTAIN PROGESTERONE.
Caprylic/capric triglyceride - is a 'medium chain' triglyceride of fractionated vegetable fatty acids extracted from coconut oil. It is colourless, neutral in odour and taste and has a very low viscosity. It has very good resistance to oxidation. It is an ideal 'carrier' for progesterone, as it penetrates the skin readily and is easily absorbed. It does not leave a greasy film and helps to retain moisture. Very importantly... it is not a mineral oil and is unrefined.
A closer look:
Mineral oils, being petro-chemicals, are potentially harmful because they are "endochrine disruptors". They rob your body of the oil soluble vitamins A, D, E & K, and so deprive you of vital nutrients. Never use any product on your skin that contains mineral oils.
Heating or refining any vegetable oil causes damage. The good "cis" fatty acids that are found in vegetable oils are turned into bad "trans" fatty acids and the result is highly carcinogenic. DO NOT use refined oils.
Vitamin E (dl-alpha tocopherol) - All emulsions made with vegetable oils have the potential to go rancid. For this reason dl-alpha tocopherol is used as it is an 'in vitro' antioxidant. Standard preparations contain only 0.1%, however, Natpro progesterone cream contains a further 0.2%.
The new two part emulsifier system, cetearyl olivate/sorbitan olivate - a unique natural PEG-free organic emulsifier from olive oil. It reduces skin water loss, has a high moisturizing effect, is hypoallergenic and biomimics the skin.
Aspen bark extract, a new natural organic preservative system is a natural organic preservative is a unique discovery as it is an effective natural replacement for commonly used harmful chemical preservatives such as the 'parabens'. It also improves the emollience (the 'feel good' factor) of the cream.
de-ionized water - this is a pure pharmaceutical grade standard .
