Cream Absorbsion and Progesterone stored in Fat

Hi,
Natpro is THE best cream, I have never had such almost immediate relief. The absorbancy must be that much better, and no bad ingredients.

I need more in a couple days since it's out of stock here I found something called ProgesterAll to tide me over until I can order more.

They say it contains a "unique liposome-mediated delivery system" causing "rapid absorption of the ingredients into the skin so they can be stored in the underlying fatty tissues for transmission to the bloodstream"

Only half as potent as Natpro, as well. Is their claim valid and will this product cause any negative effects later on due to Progesterone being stored in fat?

Here are the ingredients:
Deionized Water, Capryllic/Capric Triglyceride, Sepigel, Progesterone (20 mg per 1/4 teaspoon and 960 mg per 2-ounce tube), Lecithin, Alcohol, Glycerin, Simugel (a plant-based thickener), Grapefruit Seed Extract, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Tocopheryl Acetate.

Thank you for your time

Cream Absorbsion and Progesterone stored in Fat

Hi Anne Bless you for the kind words! The stock outs are causing me much anguish, we have yet again doubled our batch production this last month. Plus we're doubling it again this month, probably November too. The absorbency is good, thanks for noticing it. We have confirmation of this via Saliva Tests we run, the progesterone shoots up after only a month. No fancy 'systems' needed. It's so interesting ProgesterAll mentioning "rapid absorption of the ingredients into the skin so they can be stored in the underlying fatty tissues for transmission to the bloodstream". You won't believe how many people tell me how bad this is, and so and so says it should be used via vaginal delivery, or under the tongue, or .......! I spend my life telling them it needs to go into the fatty layer, and from there it enters the blood stream......it's an uphill battle. Can't imagine the lambasting I'd get if I put that phrase on this website! See this paper here, which says "....the lipophilic ingredients of creams, including progesterone, may have a preference for saturating the fatty layer below the dermis. Because there appears to be rapid uptake and release of steroids by red blood cells passing through capillaries, these cells may play an important role in transporting progesterone to salivary glands and other tissues." It's very evident this is the case, judging by our own studies run by a naturopath in the UK using Genova Diagnostics. The ingredients in ProgesterAll are all fine, bear in mind it's half the strength though, so you need to use double the amount of cream to get the same amount of progesterone. Take care Wray
