According to Bergstrom Nutrition (Vancouver, WA), recent evidence suggests that the company’s OptiMSM methylsulfonylmethane (also for joint health and inflammation) may allow personal care formulators to cut down on their use of preservatives. According to the company, OptiMSM can be used in moisturizers, nail polishes, acne creams/gels, antiaging products, body washes, shampoos, toothpaste, and mouthwashes. The ingredient also provides benefits beyond preservation, including supporting collagen/keratin production; being a primary building block for healthy hair, skin, and nails; being pH and thermally stable; and working synergistically with other ingredients. Bergstrom Nutrition says OptiMSM is the world’s only GRAS-designated proprietary and patented MSM.
