Many of us are deficient in Vitamin B12 , especially if you are older or choose a mostly or all plant based diet. I am a vegetarian, but often eat entirely plant based (vegan) so I am concerned about my B12 amounts. I also have dry skin that is very sensitive to many products. This Maxasorb Vitamin B12 cream seemed like a possible solution to both my dry skin and B12 concerns.
Maxabsorb B12 Cream
This B12 lotion comes with in a pump dispenser. Two pumps is one dose which the label says contains 320 micrograms of Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin, which is considered one of the best forms of B12 and more expensive to produce) plus 120 micrograms of Vitamin B3 (niacin) and 10 micrograms of Vitamin B9 (Folate).
I used one pump on each are and smoothed it onto my arms. It goes on very easily and does not feel greasy. The lotion soaked in easily (my skin is usually dry) and left my skin feeling smooth and much less dry. Later in the day, it still felt quite moisturized, though it didn’t have that obvious lotion feel. After a few days of using the B12 lotion, my skin seemed more hydrated, even before applying the daily amount. I think it has some lasting effects, though I am continuing to use it daily. It does have a slight odor, but it is light and pleasant, not at all over-taking.
In addition to Vitamin B12, B3, and B9, Maxasorb is rich in antioxidants and moisturizers. Although I can’t test the antioxidants themselves, I can feel the moisturizers working. The area on which I have been applying the lotion is now less dry and I’ve also noticed fewer age spots, although the product does not specify that it helps with those.
I highly recommend the Maxabsorb B12 Cream. It’s a natural product with quality ingredients. It is wonderful as a moisturizer, with the bonus of delivering vitamins B12, B3, and B9, plus antioxidants.
I received this product in exchange for an honest review. The opinion and words are my own.
