    Unpronounceable ingredients

      Comments about Alvin Last Extra Strenght Wild Yam Gel - 2 Ounces Gel:

      Somebody asked what the unpronounceable ingredients were, and what they did. I don't know which ones the person thought were unpronounceable but can guess. Maybe I am right in my choices. But isn't it strange to ask a retorical question, and not tell?

      so here is my list and what they do
      CARBOMER: This is a kind of acrylic that is used to make a cream or other thing smooth consistency and texture and therefore nice to use.

      PHENOXYETHANOL: This is added to stop the carbomer spoiling. It's used in a lot of cosmetic products too. It's not very high concentration, maybe less than 0.5%. What we do know is that it is harmful at 75% concentration or above. This is less than one hundredth of that. It is a replacement for parabens which are thought to be harmful to us.
      ETHYLHEXLGLYCERIN: This is also a replacement for parabens. It does the same kind of thing as phenoxyethanol but also makes the gel better at skin conditioning. It is in a very low concentration, way below any levels thought to be even a little harmful.
      TRIETHANOLAMINE: This is an alkaline compound that restores the skin PH to a less acidic one. At the levels of concentration in this gel, it is very low and way below any risk.

      But all of these might cause a skin reaction in those people who have sensitivity and are prone to contact dermatitis. Of course, that applies to any gel or cream that you put on yourself, even everyday skin softeners and conditioning creams. Most people don't have that problem.

      The only other thing that might be unpronounceable is OLETH-20. This helps the gel consistency and spread. I took a look at the MSDS sheet and there are no adverse reactions known as long as you don't put lots of it in your eye or eat it like dessert. That applies to lots of things. So, don't eat the gel in extra large quantities.

      Rather than point a finger and suggest vaguely that the ingredients can do anybody harm, I have seen a very different truth. Use it as directed, and unless you are prone to skin complaints due to extra sensitivity, or decide you are going to eat it like dessert, it is not likely to hurt you.

          Comments about Alvin Last Extra Strenght Wild Yam Gel - 2 Ounces Gel:

          I started using this gel to soothe menstrual cramps and soon noticed that it eases pain pretty much anywhere you put it...neck, back, knee... It's a staple in my natural medicine cabinet for quick, topical muscle pain releif and a little goes a long way. I even mix it with my face cream and it has a wonderful effect on my skin!

          Burnell H on May 31, 2015
          Many years ago when I started going thru Memopause and having hot flashes I was recommended this product because the "chemical makeup" was the same as what we women loose. It has worked very well and I recommend it to alot of friends and family!

          JANET L on Oct 12, 2014
          Best Answer: I have been using wild yam cream for approx 3 -4 years now. For me it really does the trick. I can tell if I forget to use it mainly because I will start getting hot flashes which I never get anymore since the start of use of this cream. I am 55 and I have recommended to many friends. Even my daughter now uses for Pms.
