ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Wild Yam can have beneficial effects on menopausal symptoms of the skin, especially those that affect the skin, such as reddening, flashing, thinning skin, brown spots, and exceptionally dry skin, especially vaginal dryness.

Did you know? Wild Yam contains steroidal saponins, including diosgenin (a naturally occurring compound), which is a precursor remarkably similar to our own hormone, progesterone. This is the compound that was synthesised to make the first contraceptive pills in the 1960s.  In fact, wild yam was once the only source of raw materials for the early contraceptive pills. 

Marigold is also included in this cream for its soothing and regenerative effect on thinning skin tissue.
