Why Your Dry Skin Needs Magnesium

Mad for Magnesium Body Butter Information

What is magnesium?

Magnesium is a mineral essential for cellular health. It helps create and repair DNA and regulates neurotransmitters, which are responsible for sending messages to your brain, including sensations of pain and itch.


Does It absorb through skin into the bloodstream?

The verdict is still out. According to research published by the National Institutes of Health in July 2017¹, more studies need to be done, but there are documented incidents showing that magnesium applied topically may absorb transdermally (through the skin), especially if you’re magnesium deficient. So if you’re lacking magnesium, you might absorb it more deeply than someone with normal magnesium levels.


Why should I use magnesium in my skincare?

Aside from having the potential to soothe muscle tension, magnesium helps improve skin tone and reduces the appearance of imperfections from very dry skin conditions. It has an overall calming effect.


Who benefits from magnesium?

Everyone can benefit from magnesium based skincare, but it is especially soothing for very dry, rough, or sensitive skin.


What makes It pampering?

Most products formulated for soothing chronically dry, sensitive skin contain petroleum based ingredients. When you use a product with magnesium, your skin gets the calming relief and smooth appearance you want without harming the environment.


When should I use it?

Skincare products with magnesium can be used any time; because it has a calming effect on mind and body, we like to use it in the evening to help promote relaxation.
