I have dry skin and although I live in the Sunshine State of Florida, I sometimes wonder if I am getting enough vitamin D, as we try to avoid being in the sun during the heat of the day. The Vita Sciences Maxabsorb D3 cream is a great solution!
Vitamin D3 is an essential vitamin that our bodies produce from sunlight, but those of us choosing to avoid too much sun, people with special health concerns, and also those of us not young anymore may find we need to supplement vitamin D. A lack of vitamin D can cause serious health issues including weak bones and cardiac problems.
One pump of the cream gives one daily dose, making it quite easy to measure. The pump dispenser holds 30 doses. The cream glides on very smoothly and is not at all sticky or smelly. It was quickly absorbed into my skin and I only noticed a pleasant, silky feel with no greasiness that some lotions cause.
Does it work? I can’t measure the effectiveness of the vitamin D, but D3 is the recommended form of vitamin D. It definitely moisturizes and leaves a very nice feel on my skin.
The labeling shows the ingredients as:
Aqua (Water), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Juice, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Glycerin, Palm Stearic Acid, Emulsifying Wax, Cetyl Myristoleate, Panthenol, Cetyl Alcohol, Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3-1000 IU/dose), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Phenoxyethanol, Tetrasodium EDTA, Sorbic Acid, Citric Acid
ADULTS AND CHILDREN 12 YEARS OF AGE AND OLDER: Rub a full pump (1,000 IU D3) onto skin 1 – 2 times per day. CHILDREN UNDER 12 YEARS OF AGE: Rub a full pump (100 IU D3) onto skin not more than once per day.
Creams are certainly an easy way to ensure you are getting enough of a particular vitamin and this one delivers your vitamin D with a nice creamy moisturizer. I highly recommend this cream for anyone looking to supplement their vitamin D.
You can find the Maxabsorb D3 cream on Amazon
