Functions:

Methyl Sufonyl Methane (MSM) is a sulfur compound that occurs naturally in some primitive plants and is often used as a dietary supplement in the health food industry (Wikipedia). It is used two-fold in cosmetics and beauty products for its sulfur properties, which is thought to make it an anti-inflammatory and anti-aging ingredient, and as a dissolving agent in formulas.

According to Dermaxime.com, Methyl Sufonyl Methane (MSM) prevents the cross-linking of collagen fibers. Methyl Sufonyl Methane (MSM) is a sulfur compound, and approximately half of the total body sulfur is concentrated in the muscles, skin and bones. Methyl Sufonyl Methane (MSM) decreases the pressure inside the cell and removes fluids and toxins, restoring flexibility and permeability to cell walls, and allowing fluid to pass through the tissues more easily, according to research.

Methyl Sufonyl Methane (MSM) enhances tissue pliability and encourages repairs damaged skin. If there is insufficient sulfur in the body when new cells are being manufactured, the new cells will be rigid. When sufficient sulfur is present for new cells, the skin is softer, smoother and more flexible. Without Methyl Sufonyl Methane (MSM), bodies are unable to regenerate healthy cells, leading to problems such as lost flexibility, scar tissue, wrinkles, varicose veins, and dry cracking skin.

Methyl Sufonyl Methane (MSM) is also used as a dissolving agent in cosmetic and beauty products that assists formulas in dissolving and allows them to penetrate the skin more easily.
