Pro-Gest Original Natural Progesterone Cream Value Size by Emerita
Emerita Pro-Gest Original Natural Progesterone Cream - 4 oz. (112 g)
Who knew a little tube of cream could change the world? In 1978 Emerita had a revolutionary idea: that there was not enough choice when it came to support for PMS and peri/menopause. So Emerita created Pro-Gest to give women a much-deserved alternative. Emerita Pro-Gest Original Natural Progesterone Cream is the only progesterone cream that’s been clinically-tested. Emerita Pro-Gest Original Natural Progesterone Cream is the best-selling progesterone cream available anywhere (and has been for many years). And now Emerita Pro-Gest Original Natural Progesterone Cream is paraben-free.
Why a Paraben-Free choice?
Emerita recently learned of a 2004 research study suggesting that exposure to parabens may have negative health effects. And while the results of the study are not conclusive, Emerita decided to be proactive. Emerita immediately began developing paraben-free formulations for their products. Just to be on the safe side.
Emerita (e-MER-ita) is a woman-owned company that's been in the business of serving women since the 1970s. Emerita began as a family business, which youngest daughter Sharon MacFarland took over in 1983 at the age of 23. Since then Sharon built the company into Emerita: A leading national brand of natural wellness products for women. In the early days, Emerita marketed natural menopause products through the Transitions For Health catalog and through physicians' offices. The catalog even appeared in an episode of Sex & the City.
Then in the 1990s, Emerita's flagship progesterone cream, Pro-Gest, was introduced at natural food stores, launching a whole category of natural wellness products for mature women. Since then, Emerita has expanded its offerings to include sexual vitality, feminine care, health supplements and skin care products, as well. Emerita has long been a socially-responsible company that respects and empowers its employees, while operating in an open and collaborative fashion. Emerita also has a long history as an advocate for women, valuing education about women's health issues. Emerita is headquartered in Portland, Oregon, one of America's most beautiful cities and a wonderful place to live — naturally.
Emerita understands that their business affects the environment and recognizes that it is their responsibility to care for the health and balance of the planet, just as they have been caring for the health and balance of women for the past 30 years. Emerita's aim is to improve what they do today is to benefit our planet today and the women of tomorrow.
Emerita provides full ingredient disclosure on all of their products and does not make claims that their products are all-natural or 100% organic. Emerita also believes that products should deliver on their promise. Emerita's promise is to deliver safe and effective products with high quality ingredients that include natural and organic botanicals.
Emerita products come in several forms, including creams, lotions and serums. To ensure their effectiveness and shelf life stability it is necessary to use formula building blocks that create the products' form. For those building blocks Emerita strives to use only plant and mineral derived ingredients whenever possible. When these options aren't available Emerita utilizes research from sources such as the European Union, Environmental Working Group, the Breast Cancer Fund and other ingredient filters for recommendations on the safest stabilizing chemicals available to produce the highest quality product. Additionally, Emerita is committed to continually monitoring ongoing scientific discoveries to identify the best and healthiest choices for all their products.
Of course, when Mother Nature offers effective, consistent and safe options — Emerita eagerly incorporates them into their products. Organic botanicals, helpful natural antioxidants, mild coconut-based soaps, plant derived oils and extracts, are part of the mix from Mother Nature and are vital ingredients to Emerita's products.
In addition, Emerita's products do not contain mineral oil, petroleum, phthalates, sodium laurel sulfate or animal anything. Emerita's products are vegan, and have never been tested on animals.

Additionally, Emerita offsets 100% of the electricity used in their Portland, OR office and 100% of their business travel by airplane or car through the purchase of Green Tags. Emerita's green tags are purchased through The Bonneville Environmental Foundation, a non-profit organization that sells carbon offsets as renewable energy certificates, which it calls Green Tags. These Green Tags replace traditional polluting sources of electricity with clean, secure, and sustainable renewable sources of energy that come from solar and wind power from across North America. One Green Tag represents enough renewable energy to offset a typical home for a month with clean wind and solar power, and is equal to:
- 1,000 kilowatt-hours of renewable energy onto North America's power grids
- 1,500 miles of offsetting emissions from a standard car
The Green Tags are a blend of Green-e Climate Certified renewable energy resources.

I've used many kinds of natural progesterone cream over the years, and Emerita is the "Gold Standard". This is a great price, too!
Easy to use. I know it's effective by greatly reduced symptoms during my peri-menopause (less cramps, more regular cycle, much less sleep disturbance). Absorbtion of progesterone proven by saliva hormone testing. Very happy with this product, having used it for over a year.
I've been using the Emerita brand of progesterone cream for 10 years. I've tried other brands but they are just not the same.
Prices are great; better than anywhere else.
Hot flashers are fewer, but the rest of MP symptoms are still here.... Smells less disgusting than similar products
I have used this product for years. It has USP grade progesterone. Add the hormone to the system that is increasingly missing as we age. Hot flashes and dry skin symptoms disappearred within one week of use.
I HAVE TRIED A FEW OTHER BRANDS, BUT I PLAN TO STICK WITH EMERITA PRO-GEST BECAUSE IT HAS DEFINITELY HELPED ME WITH MY PERI-MENOPAUSAL SYMPTOMS. I ONLY WISHES I KNEW ABOUT THIS PRODUCT 30 YEARS AGO.
Fast delivery and a great product. I would shop from Lucky Vitamin again.
This IS one of the best Natural Progesterone's I have found. Unlike others that I have tried, the cream goes on smoothly and absorbs fast. There is no unwanted smells to contend with either. Plus no greasy feel to it. Progesterone is a must in our bodies as we get to menopause age and there is no better way to get it naturally then through this wonderful product.
Love Emerita products! Very helpful and moisturizing.
I've struggled with extreme perimenopausal symptoms for three years. I wish I had tried this when they first started. This product has helped me feel like myself again. My pain is greatly diminished, my cycle is very regular and periods are light, and breast tenderness is gone. My moods have improved and I sleep more soundly. I will continue to use this product and was pleased to find it here at such a great cost. Highly recommended!
supportive of hormone balance
I cannot say enough about Emerita Progest cream. I have used other remedies for the problems related to the change of life many women go throughand I am happy I found this product that works! It is truly odorless and it soaks in totally and penetrates deeply.My boyfriend is very happy I use this product. This is one of the best products I have ever used and it does what it says it will do 100% !
I've been using this product for years. This is an excellent price.
This cream helps reduce hot flashes alot. It also goes on very smoothly and lightly. I really am thankful for the excellent prices. Thanks Lucky Vitamins for making everything simple in ordering.
Non-greasy and absorbs quickly.
I love it because it doesn’t smell like perfume, it is a natural cream, I think none of the ingredients are on the black list….
Works well, though I wish it came in a pump like the Now brand cream.
