What are MISMO's key ingredients?


MSM or Methyl Sulfonyl Methane is a source of bio-available organic Sulphur, which is present in every cell of the body. MSM has proved to be a great skin softener which helps prevent cross linking of skin, a cause of wrinkles and lines. Studies have shown it penetrates the layers of the dermis and helps improve production of collagen and keratin. MSM is primarily used as a health supplement for helping with pain control.

MSM comes in crystalline powder form. It was during trials in the USA by Dr Stanley Jacob at his pain clinic, that many patients noticed how much softer their skin had become and any lines were much less noticeable. Cosmetic companies in the USA and UK began to manufacture creams and gels containing MSM with great success.

MSM has no relationship to the drug Sulphur or sulphites or sulphates. It is non toxic.

Hyaluronic Acid

Also known as Sodium Hyaluronate, Hyaluronic Acid is the king of hydrators. Hyaluronic Acid is not an acid but a plant derived carbohydrate capable of holding up to 1000 times its own weight in water.

Hyaluronic Acid is also produced naturally by the body. It provides continuous moisture to the skin. This plumpness and high moisture level is very evident in babies and young children. With age, the ability of the skin to produce Hyaluronic Acid decreases leaving the skin wrinkled and sagging. Hyaluronic Acid is found throughout the body in bones, cartilage, joints, eyes, lips, gums and skin. By using it topically in a serum much of the moisture loss can be replenished, revitalizing ageing skin. To be effective, the correct form of Hyaluronic Acid and sufficient quantity needs to be used. These issues have been addressed by MISMO, with our fantastic Rejuvenating Gel, producing a superior serum.

Matrixyl Synthe 6 ®

Matrixyl Synthe 6 contains the bio peptides Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide 3, derived from amino acids. They act as signal messengers to encourage skin tissue to restore itself to a more youthful strength while promoting deep tissue repair. Collagen and elastin production is accelerated. Skin tone and elasticity are significantly improved. Matrixyl Synthe 6 ® was designed to promote collagen production while strengthening the essential structure of skin tissue.

Matrixyl Synthe 6 ® reduced the surface area occupied by deep wrinkles 44.9% on average in clinical tests conducted by the manufacturer, Sederma. This double peptide complex provides a stronger anti-aging effect on the appearance of skin as it stimulates natural Hyaluronic Acid for greater moisture retention which keeps skin's cellular matrix plumped, normalized and smoothed. In combination with the breakthrough transdermal technology delivery system Matrixyl 3000 ® helps to minimize the appearance of expression lines such as crow's feet and creases under the eyes. Due to peptide stimulation of increased cell turnover, skin appears softer and firmer.

To see the effects of Matrixyl Synthe 6 ® have a look at the before and after images on our Rejuvenating Gel page.


Albumen is a protein derived from egg whites. It stimulates blood supply and provides lift and firming to the skin when used regularly, as with the MISMO Firming Mask.

Aloe Vera

Organic Aloe Vera (sourced from Queensland) helps to soothe and moisturise the skin. Aloe Vera is known to contain over 200 identified nutrients including Vitamins A, B12, C and E, plus 20 amino acids. These treasures from nature assist in a more rapid cell regeneration process, resulting in smoother, younger looking skin. Aloe Vera has been used for centuries and is now more popular than ever. It has natural healing, softening and calming abilities. MISMO Cell Soother combines Aloe Vera with MSM to provide an effective, multi-purpose gel to soothe everything from insect bites to Rosacea.

Apricot Kernel oil

Apricot Kernel oil contains 30% unsaturated essential fatty acids, which is similar in weight to human sebum. It is very nourishing to the skin and excellent for use around the eyes and neck.


Chamomile remedies skin complaints, including irritations. It has calming, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties.

Coconut oil

Commonly used to promote lather in soaps and gels, Coconut oil is a wonderful emollient and has cooling properties. It features in our light yet rich moisturiser, MISMO Nourishing Cream.

Cocoa butter

Cocoa butter is high in Vitamin E and helps to soften and lubricate the skin. It also seals in moisture and improves skin elasticity.

Castor oil

Extracted from the castor plant, Castor oil is rich in Ricinoleic Acid (87%), a fatty acid with an unusual molecular structure. Castor oil is soothing and non-irritating. Called palma Christi (hand of Christ) in ancient times for its healing abilities, it is often used in soap making and is a good pore cleanser.


A food grade vegetable oil that is water soluble, Glycerine is a humectant that helps the skin retain moisture. It has water binding capabilities that allow it to draw and absorb water from the air.

Green Tea

Green Tea contains Anti-oxidants which calm and soothe.

Jojoba oil

Jojoba oil is technically not an oil, but a liquid wax often called liquid gold. First used in 1701, Native Americans used Jojoba to treat all manner of skin and scalp problems. Jojoba has superb moisturising and lubricating properties and is the closest oil to human sebum.


Limeflowers are calming for skin. They are a rich source of bio-flavenoids and farnesol, elements required to maintain youthful texture and resilience.

Macadamia Nut oil

Our oil is extracted from the highest quality grade Australian Macadamias. Macadamia Nut oil is an excellent treatment and conditioner, especially for dry skin. Very high in Palmitic acids and high in Oleic acid, this special oil has deep skin penetrating properties. Also contains Magnesium, Thiamin and Vitamin E.

Orange Blossom Extract

Has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.

Spearmint Extract

Spearmint extract revives dull, lacklustre skin and increases vigour and activity for skin balance.

Shea butter

Shea butter comes from the Karite tree, grown in Africa. It is extremely therapeutic, helping to heal cracked, aged and damaged skin. It contains Vitamins A and E and is highly beneficial for the skin. Shea butter is renowned for its skin softening and moisture retaining ability.

Sweet Almond oil

A rich emollient oil high in Oleic acid and EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids) Sweet Almond oil is easily absorbed by the skin.

What MISMO DOESN'T contain:

Studies have shown the less ingredients a cream contains the less chance there is of irritation causing inflammation. Very often artificial colouring and fragrances cause reactions. This is also true for many people in the case of parabens, propylene glycol, mineral oils and sodium lauryl sulphate or sodium laureth sulphate.

MISMO uses zinc as a sun block in New Age Moisturiser with sunscreen. Always use sunscreen when outdoors (making sure you apply it after your MISMO creams) and avoid a wrinkle.

MISMO uses pure natural nut or vegetable oils, botanicals, essential oils and MSM for maximum benefits without irritation. Vitamins C, A, B3 and E are also used for the anti ageing benefits and in some products for acne control.

What is MSM?

MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane or Dimethyl Sulfone) is an organic sulphur compound found in all living organisms. It is the purest and most bio-available form of sulphur, one of the essential minerals crucial to life and the regeneration of cells. MSM has traditionally been taken as a food supplement to increase joint health for flexibility and mobility, as well as for strong hair and nails, beautiful skin, and other health conditions from leaky gut syndrome to mild arthritis, osteoporosis, and psoriasis. 

Why do we need to supplement with MSM?

Natural MSM is largely destroyed when our food is processed and can be lost entirely when foods and ingredients are stored for a long period of time. MSM bonds with moisture, so any food which undergoes any sort of dehydration will lack its natural MSM.

For these reasons, and because MSM is so critical for almost every athletic function in active bodies, it is important to consistently supplement with a quality MSM nutritional supplement 

What is the science of MSM?

Sulphur is integral to the production of collagen and elastin, and MSM is a source of organic Sulphur. Collagen is the principal structural protein holding the skin together and is largely responsible for the skin’s mechanical properties.  Approximately half of the body's sulphur content is found in the skin, muscles, cartilage and bones.

How can MSM benefit your skin, hair and nails?

  • Protecting collagen against collagen degrading enzymes
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen and elastin production
  • Boosting the natural production of Glutathione, one of the body's key anti-oxidants ... as an anti-oxidant, MSM will boost the immune system and reduce pigmentation and cellular damage
  • Acting as an anti-inflammatory agent by reducing the production of cytokines (compounds that cause inflammation)
  • Maintaining skin cell membrane flexibility and permeability, promoting an efficient exchange of nutrients and waste products to help keep skin clear
  • Helping to maintaining the body's pH balance

How can MSM help with joint health and support? 

MSM has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can be used as a natural alternative to help reduce pain from mild arthritis and osteoarthritis related symptoms.

How does MISMO MSM help with exercise recovery?

Our muscles, skin, bones, organs, and connective tissue all rely on sulphur and without it our bodies can not function properly.  MSM is an important nutritional supplement for anyone living an active lifestyle, as it delivers the sulphur and methyl nutrients which are key to the structure of healthy cells in muscle and connective tissue.

MSM is valued by bodybuilders, strength, and power athletes because it supports healthy and flexible cell structures and can help reduce the inflammation of muscle tissue and can offset muscle soreness and joint pain caused by inflammation.

Where is MSM found and how is it manufactured?

MSM is found in the fluid and tissue of all living organisms. It is present in a variety of foods including raw vegetables, eggs, milk and fish, but is lost through cooking and food processing. One of the richest natural supplies is pine trees and cabbage.

Although MSM is abundant in nature, even the richest natural sources only provide MSM in the level of several parts per million. Commercial extraction of MSM from trees is not possible so a process is undertaken which parallels the natural oxidation that occurs in the marine atmosphere and produces MSM that is a chemical compound identical to that found in nature.

What is the difference between Distilled Ultra-Pure MSM and Pure-Crystalline MSM?

With the distilled product, the MSM solution is heated up to a point where the MSM is released as a vapour and the pure crystals are formed and harvested as the vapour cools on the inside surface of a distillation column.  The heating-up of the MSM solution and the subsequent cooling and harvesting process requires a lot more energy, and hence the reason why the price is a bit higher.

With the crystalline product, the MSM solution is "spun" at super-high speed in a centrifuge and the MSM crystals are formed on the walls of the centrifuge.  And although the MSM solution is highly-pure before the crystallisation process begins (having undergone a reverse-osmosis filtration process), there is a remote possibility that if there are any trace impurities in the solution they can become encapsulated in the crystalline structure.

How pure is MISMO MSM?

Every batch of our MSM is rigourously tested by an independent laboratory to ensure the highest possible quality with no additives or anti-caking agents. Packaged in Australia from imported ingredients.

    How much MISMO MSM should I be taking?

    An average dose is between 2 to 6 grams daily. Most people take a teaspoon (approx. 4 grams) daily. If more relief is needed, increase the dose slowly. Can be taken in water or juice after breakfast, although there are no rules as to when you should take MSM.

    It is recommended to take MSM in the morning, as it can give a boost of energy. Side effects when starting out with MSM can be nausea and/or headaches. This is not uncommon and is linked to the detoxifying benefits of MSM. We recommend lowering your dose if experiencing these symptoms and gradually increasing with time.

    WARNINGS: If taking strong blood thinners, do not take MSM without your doctor's approval. Not to be taken by children without a health professional's advice.  MSM can also interfere with the accuracy of the blood test for liver enzymes by sometimes producing false positive results. It is recommended you cease taking MSM at least 4 days before these blood tests. You can resume after the test.

      I’ve been using MISMO MSM for about 6 months now, and I must say that it has definitely helped with my aches and pains. My feet no longer ache or feel like I’m Walton broken glass when I get up in the morning. And my hands are also moving easier and pain free.
