Myaderm: 60-Second Summary
Boasting ‘pharmaceutically elegant transdermal creams that use CBD to reduce pain and inflammation’, Myaderm has zeroed in on the topical segment of the industry with an intriguing line for people and their pets. While the company has a litany of positive testimonials and media spotlight features among the likes of PBS and CNN, we need to see a bit more disclosure from them in certain areas. Questions as to their source material and extraction method need immediate attention for us to award them a higher ranking.
Myaderm Brand Review
While we don’t know what ‘pharmaceutically elegant’ means, Myaderm’s products certainly contain interesting ingredients, a kind of new world/old world blend combining chemical lab creations with old school natural healers. Myaderm states that their ‘products are the result of a rich history in the pharmaceutical and compounding pharmacy industries.’ While pharmaceutical experience is a plus, and we see many CBD companies that employ pharmacists as consultants and formulators, an equivalent background in cannabis, CBD, or holistic practices usually underpins our top-ranking CBD brands.
Myaderm focuses so intently on their pharmaceutical background that they fail to mention the origin of their CBD or how they extract it. While we respect the fact that they publish Certificates of Analysis for laboratory testing, they only test for residual solvents, not heavy metals, pesticides, or mold which are equally dangerous. If Myaderm uses supercritical CO2 extraction (as most do), residual solvents are a non-issue. Also, one CoA shows 100.9% CBD – we are uncertain how a product can be more than 100% CBD.
Myaderm’s line is strictly topical, including pain cream, sport cream, blemish cream, and pet cream. While the blemish control cream has excellent ingredients like aloe leaf juice and coconut oil, the same cannot be said for the other options that each include two potentially harmful, unnatural ingredients. One substance, phenoxyethanol, is proven to cause reproductive toxicity in animals as well as dermatitis. Another chemical in these products – triethanolamine (TEA) – is created by reacting ammonia with ethylene dioxide (a known carcinogen). While not always the case, most TEA is 85% TEA and 15% diethanolamine – a chemical linked to various types of cancer. These ingredients are no-nos to begin with, but combining them with something as naturally beneficial as CBD is a suspicious move.
Bottom Line – Myaderm earns points with us for being truly charitable, supporting the WIN Foundation and other nonprofits. However, we need more disclosure from them as to their hemp source, extraction method, and testing for contaminants. Plus, it’s hard for us to look past a couple of questionable ingredients.
