Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotion is a smooth, quickly absorbed emulsion of magnesium chloride in a skin nourishing base of certified organic oils. It is light enough to be used as a daily moisturizer while still delivering therapeutic levels of magnesium to the cells. Simply apply desired amount into cupped hands and rub into the skin thoroughly, covering any areas needing special attention. For optimal uptake of magnesium ions, Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotion is best applied to clean skin. After application you may notice a slight salt-like mineral residue remaining when the solution dries. This is normal, especially in dry climates or heated indoor areas, and varies with the amount of magnesium oil applied at one time.
If you would like to avoid this mineral residue, simply apply magnesium oil 20 minutes prior to showering each day. After 20 minutes, the majority of the magnesium ions will have been absorbed and you may rinse the solution off during normal showering or bathing. You may also choose to remove the mineral residue after 20 minutes by wiping the skin with a damp washcloth.
One teaspoon contains approximately 185mg elemental magnesium.
