Yes, this is an information site, but unrelated to Oprah or the woman on her show. However, estrogens have long-been discussed here (years before that show) as one of the few topical rejuvenation treatments backed by sciene. See http://www.smartskincare.com/treatments/estrog.html and

Typically, it is diluted with a light cream or lotion 1:1.

I wanted to get more information on this estrogen cream, so I searched internet and found forum where they talked about it and they really scared me. Is it true what they are saying? http://www.hystersisters.com/vb2/showthread.php?threadid=189603
Can it really cause cancer and all those side effects?
At what age you can start using it?
Can it be used even if I'm still on the pills?
Do you really have to be under doctor's care all the time?
And also, what is preperation H?

Oral estrogen replacement therapy definitely has significant effects on the body, both potentially good and bad, such as some increase in the risk of certain cancers and, conversely, decrease in the risk of heart disease. Whether the net effect is worth it, depends on one's medical history, preferences and other factors. Most likely, applying small amount of estrogens creams to the skin would have smaller systemic effect than oral estrogens (due to incomplete absorption through the skin and smaller doses). But how much smaller is unclear and may depend on the person and a brand/type of estrogen cream.

In any case, ALWAYS consult your doctor before using any form of estrogens, whether topical or otherwise.
