I have read that progesterone cream should be put on different parts of the body every day because it has glycerin and glycerin doesn't penetrate or there is some problem with that. Well I use progesterone cream from Nature Sunshine and it has glycerin. Do you think I should change to a cream that doesn't have glycerin on it? Does your cream have glycerin? Is your cream better to use if I use it long term? I also read that you shouldn't use progesterone cream for a long time because then it will accumulate in your body and not work later. How true is this according to your expertise. Thank you for your support.

Hi Betty Glycerine doesn't prevent progesterone entering the skin. It's an humectant, meaning it draws moisture into the skin from underlying cells. Our cream doesn't contain glycerine, we haven't found it necessary to add it. The link I've given you gives Skin Deep's report on it, it has a hazard rating of 1, which is very low. You can use the link to find out more about the other ingredients the cream has, I wouldn't put some of them on my skin. There are some who believe prolonged use of progesterone will cause tissue saturation. But I, and many others who have been using it for 15 years and more, have not found it's efficacy is reduced. This would soon be noticeable, as it is with many drugs. The longer you take them, the more you need as their effects wear off. This does not occur with progesterone. Take care Wray
