Opinion on Vitamin D3 body cream

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created June 12, 2012 at 6:34 PM

Today, while purchasing some vitamin D, I noticed that the store were now selling body cream with Vitamin D, claiming that one dose equals one hour of sunlight on equator, or 250 micrograms (10000 IU) worth of vitamin D. You're supposed to apply it to areas were the skin is thin, and it's claiming that it, unlike oral supplements, cannot cause toxicity. Do you guys think these claims are true? Is it a better way of supplementing Vitamin D?

Water, glycerine, Aloe Vera gel, stearic acid, sunflower oil, caprylic triglycerides (coconut oil), C12-14 isoparaffin, polyakrylamid, laureth 7, phenoxyethanol, stearyl-eter, isopropyl-palmitat, glyseryl stearat, PEG-100, Vitamin D3, sodium bicarbonate, shea butter, carbomer, soyalecithin, disodium EDTA, calsium sorbate, allantonin. Looking at the ingredients list, this cream is far from being "clean", and I really hope I'll find a better one, but it really works for me, so I guess I'll just have to accept those extra unwanted ingredients in the mean time...

TnQ, what are the other ingredients in the cream? I wonder if the rest of it is clean?

I have now tried it for almost a week and all I can say is WOW. It has improved my sleep, my energy levels and my mood. There is no doubt that I was very deficient in Vitamin D, and this seems to be an effective method.

Yes, and i think it can reduce chance of toxicity. However 10,000 IU of D3 is already possibly toxicity if you dont have the right balance of vitamin A to D ratio.

Interesting. This may work. It might more closely resemble absorbing D naturally, which may activate the natural process in our body.

Many people can take all the supplemental oral D they want, but their D levels hardly budge. I'm just not sure of the efficacy of oral D. I haven't bothered for this very reason.

Some people believe that fat soluble vitamins, e.g. vitamin D, are better absorbed through the skin. This may be especially true if you have digestive issues that could interfere with proper absorption from the digestive tract.
