ETA: ingredient list
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a source of naturally-occurring sulfur. This popular dietary supplement has now been formulated into a nutrient-riched, moisturizing cream. We've blended soothing emollients, such as Jojoba Oil and Sweet Almond Oil, with Collagen, Aloe Vera, and the Vitamins E, A and D. This combination of beneficial vitamins, oils and herbs works together to soften, smooth and moisturize the skin.

Default Re: MSM Cream

I am wondering the same thing, the ingredients of the one at whole foods are:

MSM CREAM
INGREDIENTS:
Aloe Vera Gel, Dimethyl Sulfone (MSM), Soybean
Oil, Stearic Acid, Cetyl Alcohol, Triethanolamine, Glycerin,
Caledula Officinalis Extract (Calendula Extract). Camellia
Oleifera Extract (Green tea extract). Tocopherol (Vitamin E).
Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Lecithin, Methylparaben,
Propylparaben.

These ingredients sound really good. Has anyone succesfully used this cream for growth?

Darn it Passion fruit! I am in agreement with you about hair being an extension of the skin. I am trying to resist the urge to go shopping at whole foods today.
