Natpro Progesterone Cream
Natpro is an organic aqueous cream made exclusively of vegetable based ingredients. It is supplied in a new airless pump dispenser that contains 100 grams (3.5 oz) of cream.
The potency of Natural Progesterone content (3.3%) has been carefully calculated so those who suffer with the symptoms resulting from unopposed oestrogen can utilise the cream on a schedule which parallels their own body's natural cycles of progesterone production. A 60g tube contains 2000g of Natural Progesterone and lasts from one to three months depending on symptoms, dosage and progesterone levels prior to use.
Each dispenser of Natpro contains :
- de-ionised water
- caprylic/capric triglyceride
- cetearyl olivate/sorbitan olivate
- natural progesterone Ph.Eur. USP. JP.
- Aspen bark extract
- vitamin E
- dehydroxanthan gum
NB: Natpro has an unopened shelf life of 18 months and is still valid for 6 months after the expiry date.
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 or parabens. Examples of these could be growth hormones which are found in today's animal products or grapefruit seed extract.
- 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. Phytosterols are chemically similar to cholesterol which is found in animals. Cholesterol is the starting point for the hormones made naturally in animals, including humans. Plants such as the soy bean, Dioscorea species of yams, fenugreek, sisal, calabar bean, some lilies, yucca, some solanum species, maize and many more contain phytosterols, some of which are stigmasterol, diosgenin, sitosterol, campesterol, hecogenin, smilagenin, sarsasapogenin, solasodine. As these sterols have a similar molecular structure to progesterone, they are used as starting points for the synthesis of progesterone. In the southern United States the sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) is called a yam, as are some edible members of the aroids. These plants do not contain any sapogenins. 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.
- 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
