DIY (Do it yourself) Generic MSM Cream Recipe:MSM Face Mask Recipe

Video of How to Make a MSM Cream: The above video is an example of how you can use our MSM crystals to produce your own DIY version of a MSM cream or MSM lotion. 

Generic recipe from the video above: 

To make 8 ounces of aloe vera mixture with 10% MSM you'll need the follow: 

Step 1: Blend the .8 oz MSM powder (this volume will change depending on the total weight of your end product, and the percentage of MSM you'd like to include - most lotions or creams will allow for 5 - 15% of MSM Organic Sulfur to be added without significantly changing the texture). Alternatively, you can use a mortar and pestle to crush the MSM crystals into a fine powder. Take care not to blend the scoop or desiccant found within each package. 

Step 2: Mix blended MSM into your aloe vera gel base. 

Step 3: Scoop the final mixture into a plastic baggie. Cut off one corner and kneed your cream/lotion into the air tight container of your choice. If the container is wide mouthed, you may not need to use a baggie to limit spills. 

Step 4: Try it out, you now know how to make your own MSM gel. Use whatever cream/lotion base you'd like. Consider coconut oil or shea butter for the main base. 

We know of no skin irritation or dermatitis as a result of using MSM topically, however, we are unable to provide specific dosing or medical advice. We do encourage you to follow up with your primary healthcare provider if you have specific questions or concerns. 

MSM in cosmetics:

In more recent years cosmetic manufacturers have begun to use MSM in their products. If you find that you enjoy the benefits from a MSM cream or lotion like the one above, consider searching for cosmetics that include this supplement in their products.

Hi Mary,

Once your MSM Organic Sulfur level gets above 15% it starts to not be absorbed by the base lotion or cream. If you start small and slowly add you should be able to find a mixture that you like.

Wishing you all the best!

I do not have a scale to achieve exact ingredient amounts . Is this a critical element in making this creme? Thank you. Mary
