concentration of progesterone in cream from a compound pharmacy...

(indiana)

Hi Wray ..I called the compound pharmacy where I got my progesterone from .. they couldn't tell me the concentration of progersterone per gram or milligram. They acted like it was all progesterone. Is that possible? She said its a powder and then water and cream.So basically three ingredients. I am asking bc I was thinking of trying Natpro as it appears cheaper than this way ..plus I wouldn't need an rx.

This is a compound pharmacy in crown point Indiana if you need that info.

Thanks jen

Hi Jen They obviously don't make it themselves, or they wouldn't have said that. You can't just mix progesterone into a cream, it would like using an exfoliant! Or if they do, they don't want to give away any secrets. The progesterone has to be dissolved first in the oil phase, then the water, emulsifier, antioxidant, preservative, stabiliser has to be added. Please see our page here on the ingredients we use. Some manufacturers add many other ingredients too, all unnecessary, all that's needed is a good carrier for the progesterone. After all that's all the person using it wants. There are many good organic skin creams and sunscreens on the market, which contain other ingredients beneficial to the skin. I'm amazed they can't or won't give you the strength of the cream, after all the amount to use is based solely on this. Thanks for considering the Natpro. Take care Wray
