There’s nothing quite like the feeling of applying a moisturiser that absorbs beautifully into your skin, feels like silk and leaves just a light hint of a fresh aroma to help start your day off on the right foot. That’s exactly what Nourishing Cream with MSM feels like when I use it every morning. Not only does this cream feel amazing but it offers so many wonderful benefits for my skin.
Nourishing Cream contains a very large amount of ingredients high in essential fatty acids. Ingredients like Macadamia and Jojoba Oil. These are the ones that help with repairing the skin barrier, keeping skin smooth and elastic while also ensuring moisture levels are kept in check.
In addition to this, Nourishing Cream also contains MSM, a source of organic Sulphur, Aloe Vera, Shea and Coconut butter. All of these ingredients combine to offer a power pack of benefits like softened skin, cell renewal properties, anti-aging and healing benefits. What more could you ask for in a moisturiser?
Nourishing Cream makes for the perfect day cream for mature type skins and is also ideal for Rosacea sufferers. It’s great as a base under any makeup especially MiSMo’s mineral makeup.
If you’re wondering if Nourishing Cream is the right choice for you out of all of the moisturisers in the MiSMo range, then ask yourself these questions:
Are you wanting to increase the moisture levels in your skin?
Do you have Rosacea, sensitive or dry skin?
Would you like to calm any redness in your skin?
Are you wanting to reduce fine lines and wrinkles?
Are you looking for a natural moisturiser?
If you answer “Yes” to these then it is definitely worth trying Nourishing Cream.
Another consideration to give some thought to is now the temperatures are finally cooling off and Winter is fast approaching it might be time to look at the moisturisers you are currently using and opt for a more hydrating alternative.
Nourishing Cream can most definitely help with this. Even the addition of a treatment serum into your skincare routine to help give your skin that extra moisture boost (along with a number of other fantastic anti-aging benefits too) is also a great option.
Interesting Nourishing Cream Facts
Combines beautifully with Rejuvenating Gel for superior anti-aging benefits. Softens fine lines, offers long lasting hydration, is a popular choice for many MiSMo customers already -Victoria says, “Just brilliant, lovely moisturizer, I am a Mismo convert, no other skin products even come close! Gentle and hydrating on fine sensitized skin.”
MSM is a source of organic Sulphur. Sulphur is a mineral needed for many important functions in our bodies and offers a myriad of health benefits for so many different conditions including arthritis, allergies, carpal tunnel, snoring, just to list only a few.
In addition to this,MSM has a great deal to offer your skin also as well as certain skin conditions like Rosacea and Acne. MSM possess strong anti-inflammatory benefits which works to help calm any redness and reduce any inflamed skin. It also has the ability to help with the reproduction of healthier cells and restore any fragile cells back to strong, healthy ones. Which means positive outcomes for Rosacea and Acne sufferers.
In terms of what exactly MSM can do when used in creams, it can soften the texture of skin and what’s more exfoliation is also promoted which leads to better clarity of the complexion, which makes MSM a pretty great anti-aging tool.
All MiSMo moisturisers include MSM as one of the ingredients with New Age Moisturiserincluding the highest amount – over 10%. Which makes this moisturiser an ideal choice for those who suffer from skin conditions like Rosacea or Acne. The skin health benefits are fantastic when New Age Moisturiser is used. As an added bonus it also includes the ingredient Hyaluronic Acid, which means you will also receive some lovely anti-aging benefits too!
MiSMo received this lovely testimonial from Rochelle (an Acne sufferer) about how New Age Moisturiser worked for her-
I’ve suffered acne and oily skin for many years so have always tended to tread cautiously around moisturisers. My skin has improved significantly since switching to Mismo products (no more acne!) and I am so thankful I decided to now give the New Age Moisturiser a try – the new formulation is better than ever before and I am blown away at how it has changed my complexion. My skin is now soft and dewy and looks like it glows from within. My skin tone has evened out and best of all, the oilyness is gone!
Another product that contains a high amount of MSM is Cell Soother. Cell Soother is essentially an MSM Gel and has many and varied applications. It is a product that will also help to promote a light exfoliation and can be used to improve skin health, relieve sunburn and mozzie bites, soothe after waxing, reduce and eliminate cold sores and help to fortify pain relief in conjunction with Magnesium Gel Forte which also includes MSM.
To maximise the benefits of MSM, you can always consider using products that include MSM and also take MSM orally as a supplement. It’s a great way to give your skincare a boost from the inside too.
Don’t wait to start using MSM products your skin will thank you.
MSM is a source of organic Sulphur that can help to relieve many different health conditions (arthritis, allergies, Carpel tunnel are just some of these) and is also great to take daily to improve general well-being and increase energy.
It turns out among many of the fantastic benefits MSM has to offer helping repair and support hair is one of these.
To get a little technical MSM is needed for the synthesis of Collagen and is prevalent in Keratin, a tough protein substance needed for the health and maintenance of hair. In a nutshell, hair is made up of keratin, which is produced in the follicles in the outer layer of skin. As follicles produce new hair cells, old cells are being pushed out through the surface of the skin.
There has been research to show that MSM has helped with hair growth together with great results found when used on hair that has become dry and brittle from too many chemical hair treatments.
To receive the benefits MSM has to offer your hair there are two options. Take a daily dose internally (an average dose is one teaspoon) in a glass of water (warm water will help to dissolve the crystals quicker) which is what the research suggests for hair growth. Alternatively, in terms of chemically treated hair you can make a leave in hair treatment. You could essentially do both and receive benefits internally and topically also.
To make your own leave-in hair treatment simply mix 4 teaspoons of MSM into 250ml pure distilled water in a spray bottle and spritz onto the affected area daily. Hair should feel softer and stronger quickly.
MiSMo MSM is available in 440g and 850g quantities in both MSM Powder (Crystalised) and Distilled MSM. You can use this to make your own hair treatment and also take a daily dose yourself. As mentioned above MSM has many health benefits for a range of health conditions so it is a great supplement to start including into your routine if not just for the fantastic general health and well-being properties.
Some further information regarding MSM you may be interested in – Hot sulphur springs have been used for therapeutic purposes for centuries. The odour comes from the sulphur. Sulphur has been known as the beauty mineral of the body and it is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body. MSM has provedto be a great skin softener which helps prevent cross-linking of skin, a cause of wrinkles, lines and scarring.
In 1968, during a long and difficult delivery of her first child, Hermine Zubko suffered a hairline crack of a spinal bone in her lower back. In the weeks and months that followed Zubko experienced intermittent sever back pain. Over time, the pain became constant and frequently disabled her.
“There were many occasions when I couldn’t sit, bend, stand or walk without excruciating pain”, she says. Zubko was forced to give up her hair salon business. The pain had become overwhelming forcing her to try anti-inflammatories. She took them on and off but they gave her stomach pain and diarrhea.
The minuscule fracture in her spine eluded detection by contemporary X ray and other diagnostic methods for many years however, through MRI’s and more sophisticated medical diagnostics finally found Zubko to have severe arthritis, inflammation and thick scar tissue at the site of the original trauma. Degenerative arthritis is frequently associated with back pain. In Zubko’s case the arthritis developed as a consequence of the injury to the spinal bone tissue as well as the ageing process.
Following her diagnosis an orthopedic surgeon initiated a treatment program of cortisone injections along with physical therapy 3 times a week. The program was not successful and the pain continued. Another specialist offered her some glorified aspirin but said basically there was nothing he could do for her.
By now Zubko had been living with pain for more than 15 years. Zubko had practically lost all hope and couldn’t stand the pain anymore. Zubko’s salvation from pain came as a result of a conversation during a physical therapy session. Her therapist suggested she could benefit from regular use of MSM.
Under the care of Dr Stanley Jacob she started taking MSM a few times a day. It took quite a while to feel results, but Dr Jacob kept encouraging her to continue. He said that for some people results came fast and for others it takes longer, each individual and each condition is different.
Then one day, eight months later, Zubko woke up with no pain. She was able to walk, bend, return to work full time and finally get her life back.
You might wonder how the pain could disappear from one day to the next after many months of taking the supplement? In her situation, there was likely a very gradual reduction of inflammation and pain until one day she passed a threshold where the pain level is reduced to the point where it is no longer perceived by the brain.
There are many more fantastic case studies in The Miracle of MSM. Under the care of Dr Stanley Jacob and Dr Ronald M Lawrence thousands of patients were able to find significant relief using the nutritional supplement MSM from health conditions like degenerative arthritis, chronic back and headache pain, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome and many more.

We speak to many customers weekly who are dealing with pain. Ruth was one of these customers, who recently underwent hip replacement surgery. When we spoke to Ruth we suggested she would get the most pain relief benefits by using Cell Soother followed by Magnesium Gel Forte with MSM and this was her result;
“I have recently had a total hip replacement and yes, it is painful! I asked my partner to massage some of this wonderful gel onto the op site and it gave me a lot of relief, there was no congestion from damaged soft tissue which meant no swelling and less pain. I have also used the Cell Soother prior to applying the Mag Forte Gel and that does enhance the effects again.
I can’t recommend these products enough! Awesome!”
Another customer sprained her ankle while overseas and suffered a great deal of swelling and pain. After applying Cell Soother then Magnesium Gel Forte with MSM the pain was gone within the hour and she was able to continue to enjoy her holiday.
If you’re looking for some extra pain relief benefits then MSM Relief Packs can help with this.
MSM a source of Organic Sulphur is well known for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation is associated with a number of characteristics, says MD Stanley W Jacob who co-authored the Miracle of MSM, these include:
Loss of function of a particular body part (s)
MSM is able to have an impact on each of these inflammatory characteristics which in turn also reduces any pain associated with the inflammation. As it seems once inflammation is reduced pain is too. MSM can also help as a muscle relaxant which reduces spasms.
Flexibility and Recovery
MSM can help with an increased range of motion due to its ability to create new healthy cells and providing the flexible bond between the cells. Without the proper levels of MSM our bodies are unable to build good healthy cells which leads to problems like loss of flexibility. Having a larger range of motion will help you to get more out of your yoga poses also, allowing the possibility to go deeper into certain poses to get bigger releases.
You will also see less down time from sore muscles with recovery between classes quicker due to MSM’s ability to enhance tissue pliability which encourages speedy repair coupled with its ability to improve and increase circulation in the body.
If pain or lack of flexibility has restricted you from participating in yoga and Pilates why not try a daily dose of MSM to experience the benefits this powerful mineral has to offer. You may even find you have increased energy too, just one of the many extra bonuses you can expect from incorporating MSM into your everyday routine.
There are a few points of difference that makes the MiSMo skincare range so effective. Mineral rich MSM – a source of organic sulphur, also known as the beauty mineral is one of these and one that MiSMo has made extensive use of throughout not only the natural skincare range but the natural pain relief range too.
In addition to MSM, scientifically proven active ingredients are also used. These are an absolute essential if visual improvements are to be made. These ingredients are known as Hyaluronic Acid (also referred to as Sodium Hyaluronate), Vitamins A, C & E, and multi peptide Matrixyl Synthe 6. All of which produce outstanding results.
MiSMo creams and gels have superior penetration – this is for a couple of reasons:
MSM is a featherweight molecule which enters the skin easily
Aloe Vera has amazing penetrating qualities
The Natural oils used are all similar to human sebum and are compatible with the body
MiSMo uses ingredients that are in synergy – which means they work well together. This is really important for results to be gained.
MiSMo products are concentrated. Only small amounts are required because we do not use any “fillers” just pure, effective ingredients.
MiSMo Skin Science
BIG advances have been made in skincare in recent years due to medical research and “skin science”. MiSMo has applied much of this research when formulating products. One such discovery includes multi-peptides which assist the skin to repair itself and diminish lines significantly. These are exactly the ingredients that have your friends asking, “what’s the difference with your skin? What have you changed?
In case you’re wondering Rejuvenating Gel contains the peptide Matrixyl Synthe 6 which is one of the reasons why this product possess powerful anti-aging properties – that coupled with Hyaluronic Acid and you have a product that is a formidable anti-aging opponent.
While MiSMo has developed a strong anti-aging range we also produce an effective range for normal skin types together with those who suffer from Rosacea and Acne skin conditions. Ingredients like MSM and Aloe Vera play a big role in helping to soothe and calm inflamed skin.
We are often asked the question what is the difference between MSM Powder and Distilled MSM, so we thought it might be worth sharing the explanation. While both look and taste the same the difference between the two lies in the manufacturing process.
MSM Powder is manufactured using a crystallisation method called centrifuge (fast spinning method) where crystals are captured on the side of the tank. We still call this MSM Powder because the word “powder” has become synonymous with MSM. Both forms of MiSMo MSM are crystals.
The manufacturing process for Distilled MSM is much more intense, resulting in a super purified product. Distilled MSM goes through a 4 stage distillation process where steam is captured at the very top and impurities fall to the bottom, which ensures the highest purity. This more involved manufacturing process is why the cost is higher for this product.
When we talk about purity in terms of the manufacturing process this refers to the highest quality water of water used and the analysis of the crystals meeting the highest standards possible what is called the Certificate of Analysis. Pure also means NO additives which include the extra little ingredients many companies use to keep the crystals from becoming hard. If your MSM is not perfectly clear when dissolved something has been added – gospel truth.
Something extra to note in regards to MSM, is there are also varying grades. MiSMo MSM is the highest grade – pharmaceutical grade, which is a fantastic point of difference for MiSMo MSM. Both MSM’s are also listed with the TGA.
You can have all sorts of treatments for the face but the neck is much harder to rejuvenate once the damage is done. Consider these facts:
Wrinkles on the neck make you appear older
The skin fat and oil glands on the neck are only 1/3 of that on your face
There is much less collagen and elastin in your neck
Treatments available for the face often can’t be used on the neck particularly the central area
Your face does not finish at the jaw line! Your neck is just as important as the face, given it is the first part of the body to start showing age and does so the fastest. This is due to the neck having considerably less skin fat, sweat glands and collagen than your face, which means if not looked after properly can become dehydrated quicker resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. The neck is very difficult to rehabilitate once diamond shaped lines have formed. Unfortunately the neck often does not receive the same attention as the face in the form of necessary oils and creams.
Avoid these habits that can accelerate the development of lines
1. Holding a phone to your ear between your shoulder and neck
2. Sleeping on a pillow that is too high
3. Spraying perfume on your neck which will cause dehydration and sometimes pigmentation marks
4. Being over zealous with your exfoliator
How to Improve Neck Wrinkles
If you don’t already include your neck in your skincare routine, now is the time. And if you already have fine line and wrinkles, don’t worry these signs of ageing can be rectified by spending just a couple of extra minutes each day.
Vitamin C together with A & E are the perfect vitamins you need to help reduce and prevent any further fine lines and wrinkles from appearing. ACE Vitamin C Serum is ideal and will provide just the slip you need to massage the oil into your neck. Finish with MiSMo Nourishing Cream or Anti Wrinkle Cream to lock in those priceless vitamins.
Method: Use one pump of ACE Serum and massage your neck very gently in an upward swooping motion from bottom to top for a minute or so. Finish with your choice of MiSMo moisturiser. If you are consistent and stick with this daily routine you will notice the difference. This extra step will literally take years off your skin.
Have you ever had a cold sore? If it’s yes you’ll be familiar with the first signs; you run your tongue over your lip and there’s a little bump. Did the tingling come first or after you felt the bump.
The memory of my first cold sore is vivid. I wasn’t sure what the bump was but within hours the bump became a big, swollen sore lump. The pain and the cold sore grew and became excessive as the days went by. It was just cruel, for over 2 weeks.
All that was available in the pharmacy was a generic “cold sore cream” that was useless.
Cold sores came and went as the years went by. A pattern was clear. Whenever my lips were dry, sun exposed, windburned or stress was heavy, up came the dreaded cold sore. They would last up to 2 weeks, with a great deal of pain and discomfort.
Years down the track came MiSMo and Cell Soother. Zovirax was also around by then and always on hand.
One day the tingling started and I thought I’d give Cell Soother a go instead of Zovirax. I applied Cell Soother often, as you do Zovirax. A lovely surprise followed:
No real development of the cold sore
Scab was off in 3 -4 days instead of a week or two
Needless to say I have not used anything except Cell Soother since that day about 4 years ago for Cold Sores and also a mild shingles outbreak.
Why would Cell Soother work. It contains the maximum amount of MSM you can physically use in a gel. 15% MSM (methylsulfonyl methane) and Organic Aloe Vera.
Both ingredients are:
anti-inflammatories hence reduction or no swelling
accelerate healing at a cellular level
have anti-viral properties
A week and a bit ago I succumbed to vanity and had a cosmetic tattoo on the outline of my lips – age has caught up and definition was minimal. It is common for cold sores to erupt on the lips after cosmetic tattoo if you are susceptible.
All was well for 3 days as I flashed the new well defined lip shape. On Monday the bumps came – 8 of them all across my top lip. The bottom lip was spared for some unknown reason.
I had been applying Cell Soother several times a day since the tattoo was done. Paw Paw ointment was applied over Cell Soother. The usual recommended product is Bepanthen from the pharmacy.
The exciting part has been that in spite of such a large number of Cold Sores there has been no pain and minimal swelling. I looked a bit like Daffy Duck on Wednesday but no pain.
The pretty shape was not being flashed for a few days with all those scabs but now Friday of the cold sores there are only 2 scabs left and thanks to Cell Soother we’ll be ready for public scrutiny. By Monday the last of the cold sores were gone and my lips clear again. To have 8 coldsores come and go in 7 days is amazing.
Cosmetic Tattoos are done twice usually. After the first 5 or so days the tattooed area exfoliates and the colour reduces by about half. This is because a lot of colour is on the surface of the skin. The skin is broken when a tattoo is applied so it scabs and peels away. My description not the salons!
The skin seems tougher the second time around and not as much colour is lost.
That’s my story for the week. I LOVE Cell Soother. It saves the day over and over.
It will be interesting to see how the second session goes on my lips in a few weeks time.
