    Hi there,

    I'm sorry, but I don't know anything about most of these ingredients. Generally, most substances applied topically are not well absorbed systemically. For absorption to happen, creams need special substances added to enhance transcutaneous absorption. I don't see any such substances that would do this.

    But I can't tell you this stuff is safe.
