What are MISMO's key ingredients?

MSM

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

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

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.

Glycerin

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

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.

THE BEAUTY & HEALING MINERAL

MSM is known to be highly effective in joint health, muscle recovery, sports nutrition, immune support, and healthy ageing. 

What is MSM?

MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane or Dimethyl Sulfone) is a natural form of organic sulphur compound that is 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 peak flexibility and mobility, as well as for strong hair and nails, beautiful skin, and numerous other health conditions from leaky gut syndrome and ME to damaged joints, arthritis, osteoporosis, and psoriasis. MISMO is the first premium skincare range to harness MSM’s highly beneficial properties.

Why is it called Organic Sulphur?

Sulphur is the fourth most plentiful mineral in the human body and is known both as the ‘beauty mineral’ and the ‘healing mineral’ for its ability to support collagen production, promote circulation and decrease inflammation. Although not widely known, sulphur preparations have been used since the time of Hippocrates - the father of modern medicine - to beautify the skin and treat a variety of skin conditions.

Sulphur is structurally and functionally important to 150 bodily compounds and performs a number of important functions within the body. It is integral to the production of collagen and elastin. Approximately half of the body's sulphur content is found in the skin, muscles, cartilage, and bones.

How does MSM work at the cellular level?

Collagen is the principal structural protein holding the skin together, with the fibrils of types I and III forming the mesh which is largely responsible for the skin’s mechanical properties. Since the production of collagen types, I and III in the skin tends to decline from about the age of 35 onwards.

How can MSM help improve skin condition?

  • Protecting collagen against collagen degrading enzymes.
  • Clinically proven to reduce fine lines & wrinkles by boosting collagen and elastin production. 
  • Boosts the natural production of Glutathione, the body's key cellular anti-oxidant, to boost the immune system and reduce pigmentation and cellular damage. 
  • Acting as an anti-inflammatory agent by reducing the production of cytokines (pro-inflammation).
  • Providing the body with the raw materials needed to create new cells, and to repair damaged ones.
  • Maintaining skin cell membrane flexibility and permeability, promoting an efficient exchange of nutrients and waste products, to help keep skin clear.
  • MSM also helps in maintaining the body's crucial pH balance.
  • MSM is needed to detoxify the body. Amino acid chains are usually linked with each other through flexible sulphur bridges.

How can MSM help with joint support? 

As we age, joint pain becomes more and more frequent. MSM allows for a quicker recovery by reducing inflammatory responses and swelling that arise from joint pain and fatigue. Physical and active movements are important to our overall health, however, joints and cartilage deteriorate after time.

The ageing of joints has been shown to slow down as MSM supports active lifestyles and improves the quality of life. Taking organic sulphur is critical in maintaining healthy joints and cartilage, as MSM assimilates into the body to support optimal nutrition.

Arthritis is a common inflammatory condition that causes pain, stiffness and a reduced range of motion in your joints. Since MSM has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, it’s often used as a natural alternative to medications to improve arthritis-related symptoms.

How can MSM help with healthy ageing? 

Organic sulphur continues to gain more support as a critical dietary nutrient to assist with healthy aging. With its regulation of glutathione and other mechanisms in the body, MSM can help support healthy skin, joint mobility, cartilage, and the inflammatory response. A breakdown of joint health and mobility often comes from ageing. Organic sulphur is a critical nutrient helping to protect joints, tendons, and connective tissue.



How does MSM help with exercise recovery?

MSM powder is an important nutritional supplement for anyone living an active lifestyle, as it delivers optimal amounts of 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 structure and can reduce the inflammation of muscle tissue and joints, In this way, MSM helps new muscle development supports athletic recovery, and can help offset muscle soreness, joint pain and inflammation. MSM can also help reduce the build-up of lactic acid in muscle tissue and can speed the elimination of toxins from the liver. MSM is very useful for recovering more quickly between training sessions and it's a great supplement for joint pain.

Sulphur is a basic organic component of protein, and important to building new muscle tissue and protecting existing lean mass. Our muscles, skin, bones, organs, and connective tissue all rely on sulphur and without it, our bodies can not function properly. Sulphur is crucial for the uptake, absorption and generation of vitamins and minerals, enzymes and antibodies, and even our wellbeing and mood molecules endocrine system.

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 

MSM Benefits

Muscle function, building muscle, protection lean tissue, sports performance, training recovery.

MSM is a key source of sulphur, a compound which the body relies on for almost every function including the production of muscle tissue, healthy connective tissue, uptake of vitamins and minerals, healthy wellbeing, and mood molecule function. MSM is found in food but is difficult to retain since it is lost through food production, storage, and any loss of moisture. Taking MSM powder or capsules ensures a constant supply of optimal levels of this very important supplement.

Where is MSM found?

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.

MSM originates in the oceans where microscopic plankton releases sulphur compounds into seawater, which is quickly converted to DMS, a volatile sulphur compound that escapes into the atmosphere. In this suspended, gaseous state, the DMS reacts with ozone and ultraviolet sunlight to create MSM. MSM then falls to the earth with the rain, where it is collected and concentrated in plants. 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 chemically identical to that found in nature.

How pure is MISMO MSM?

Every batch of our MSM is rigourously tested by an independent laboratory to ensure the highest quality, minimum 99.99% pure MSM. Testing processes include:

  • High resolution gas chromatography (“HRGC”) – establishes the volatile purity of organic sulfur (“volatile” impurities referring to those impurities that evaporate easily).
  • Melting point – helps to reveal non-volatile purities which cannot be determined by HRGC. This testing is important in conjunction with the HRGC testing to determine that the organic sulfur you are consuming is also pure from non-volatility impurities (“non-volatile” referring to a substance that does not readily evaporate into gas under existing conditions).
  • Karl Fischer Titration Method (“KFT”) – Pure organic sulfur should be extremely dry, with a water content of less than 0.1%.
  • Metals Testing - heavy metals; Arsenic, Cadmium, Mercury, and Lead, as well as the metal Aluminum. Additionally, as water is an integral part of the production process, guidelines regarding water supply are very important. Thus, it is worth noting that foreign MSM production facilities may be located in areas where local water supplies do not meet the more stringent U.S. Federal guidelines for organic and inorganic volatiles, heavy metals, and other contaminants, making heavy metal testing essential (We note that our product is made in the U.S).
  • Microbiological Testing - for aerobic bacteria, total coliforms, and yeast and molds. Again, this testing can be affected by water contamination. Poor water quality can lead to coliform and bacterial contamination. Too much moisture in the product can lead to yeast and mold contamination.

MISMO MSM usage

An average dose is between 2-8 grams daily. Most people take a teaspoon (approximately 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.

A word of caution: some people find if they take MSM late in the day, after 4 or 5pm, they do not sleep as well, as it energises them. This is not a general occurrence but worth mentioning.

WARNINGS: If taking Warfarin or strong blood thinners, do not take MSM without your doctor's approval.

Not to be taken by children without a health professional's advice.

BLOOD TESTS: MSM can interfere with the accuracy of the 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.
