    I am wondering the same thing, the ingredients of the one at whole foods are:

    MSM CREAM
    INGREDIENTS:
    Aloe Vera Gel, Dimethyl Sulfone (MSM), Soybean
    Oil, Stearic Acid, Cetyl Alcohol, Triethanolamine, Glycerin,
    Caledula Officinalis Extract (Calendula Extract). Camellia
    Oleifera Extract (Green tea extract). Tocopherol (Vitamin E).
    Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Lecithin, Methylparaben,
    Propylparaben.

    These ingredients sound really good. Has anyone succesfully used this cream for growth?
