From the Karunahealth.net website:
"Progesterone, a hormone derived primarily from the corpus luteum and secondarily from the adrenal gland and the male testes is a precursor hormone which can be converted, as required, into other steroid hormones such as DHEA, estrogen, androstenedione, testosterone, and cortisol. Karuna's Progesterone Pure is specifically designed for two populations: (1)men who may benefit from the supportive actions of progesterone and (2)all people suffering with skin sensitivities or allergies. Progesterone may a critical role in men's health, opposing the effects of naturally-produced and environmental estrogens on tissues such as the prostate. In addition, Progesterone Pure is a hypoallergenic formula free of chemicals found in cosmetic skin creams, particularly synthetic frangrances and preservatives that can be agents for triggering skin sensitivities and allergies.
