Ingredients: Magnesium chloride, aqua (water)
Magnesium oil is a bit of a misnomer, in that it’s not actually an oil nor does it contain any. The solution gets its name from the layer that it leaves on the skin.
There are preliminary studies that show the potential benefits of transdermal absorption of magnesium chloride, which contains many essential trace elements that may be able to pass through the skin barrier. While evidence is not solid, it has been used for centuriess for multiple applications, from deodorizing to pain relief, better sleep, restless leg syndrome, stress, tension and anxiety. The applications over the years have been numerous – but please note that the strongest supporting evidence for magnesium oil is anecdotal in nature. There are some basic studies available that show promising benefits of transdermal magnesium absorption, which is a deficiency in many people. The theory is that that the skin can absorb magnesium, directing it straight to the bloodstream and bypassing the gastrointestinal tract altogether.
To use the mineral spray, spritz on the body and let air dry. This will leave a layer on your skin. First applications may be accompanied by a tingling or slight burning sensation which abates with regular use. New users should spot test for a reaction prior to whole body application. It is recommended to apply after a warm bath before bed time. Other ways to use it include a deodorant or foot spray. Please use caution after shaving, as any cuts or nicks could burn. Allow for fresh shaved skin to close and heal prior to appling the mineral oil.
