Maxasorb Melatonin Cream

Date Thu, May 28 2015

When I discovered that there was a lotion that contained melatonin, a naturally-ocurring substance that can help your sleep, I was definitely intrigued. I suffer from insomnia frequently. I’ve been recommended to try medication (tried one; didn’t work), yoga and other options. I’ve actually tried melatonin in pill form a few years ago. It didn’t help much, and I still have trouble sleeping.

So I figured trying a cream containing this same ingredient couldn’t hurt, right?

This melatonin cream is in the Maxabsorb line, and this isn’t the first product I’ve tried from them. The Maxasorb Melatonin Cream comes in the same pump bottle with a cap. It’s small enough to carry in some bags or to hide in my nightstand for use before bed.

The cream is similarly thick, so it’s not messy and runny when you use it. There’s no scent either, so it won’t overpower you when you’re trying to sleep.

I like applying a lotion because it’s easier to passively use it rather than, say, taking a pill or chewing something. It works well with my nighttime routine, and they recommend that you apply lotion before bed for dry skin problems, anyway. Some people apply lotion to their feet and put on socks, which would work well with Maxasorb Melatonin Cream.

I think this is also  a good option for children or people who might have trouble swallowing pills.

So after using it, albeit not very consistently, for a couple weeks, did I see results?

I can say that my hands feel pretty awesome because I’ve been applying nightly cream, but that my insomnia doesn’t seem to be much better. This is probably due to the fact that melatonin doesn’t seem to do much for me, and I should probably consider a prescription.

I did stop to wonder whether melatonin can be effective at all. The skin does contain melatonin receptors, so it appears like this might be an effective method of application. Source.

According to the bottle, there are 3MG of melatonin per “dose.” I’ve been using one pump, assuming it’s a single dose. This dosage is comparable to many of the oral tablets available containing melatonin.

Even if the melatonin doesn’t help me sleep, I’ve still got soft hands, and melatonin does  potentially offer other benefits to the skin. I’ll definitely keep using this bottle until it’s gone, and it’s worth checking out if you like the idea of applying melatonin as a lotion.

Maxabsorb Melatonin costs $29.95 directly from Vita Sciences, which is a bit pricey. You can try other melatonin products for quite a bit cheaper from your local pharmacy, but the cream definitely adds versatility.
