Topical Magnesium Chloride Balm
The latest addition to our Magnesium Chloride line of products, NEW Magnesium Chloride Balm improves skin while delivering fast-acting topical magnesium.
Magnesium Chloride Balm is made from magnesium chloride in its most natural state, with over 90 other trace minerals not found in lab-produced magnesium chloride. In this emollient balm, we’ve combined magnesium chloride with natural coconut oil, raw shea butter and beeswax.
Magnesium Chloride Balm:
- Penetrates through the skin to relieve tension better than Epsom salts
- Helps restore healthy magnesium levels
- Soothes, protects and boosts skin’s moisture retention
Use it anywhere for softer skin or rub Magnesium Chloride Balm into areas of muscle pain and tension. Contains approximately 200 mg of seawater-sourced magnesium chloride per teaspoon. For full-strength topical magnesium, see our Magnesium Chloride Liquid in the cap top bottle.
How to Use Magnesium Chloride Balm
Suggested Use: Smooth into areas of tension or to seal in moisture on the body or face.
Ingredients: Magnesium chloride (concentrated from seawater), fractionated coconut oil, raw shea butter and beeswax.
Contains no fragrance, preservatives or anything artificial.
Dose: Each 1 tsp (5 ml) contains ~200 mg of magnesium, equivalent to ~60mg of elemental magnesium, plus over 90 naturally-occurring trace minerals.
Note that the ‘elemental magnesium’ measurement is most important for determining the dose that may be right for you. We recommend using about 1 tsp of the product for children and at least 2 tsp for adults, topically.
Cautions and Warnings: For external use only. Keep away from the eyes. This product should not cause skin sensitivity; however, should you experience redness, rash or irritation, discontinue use.
Can you really absorb magnesium through the skin?
Consider the evidence from clinical studies:
- A topical magnesium oil with a 31% magnesium concentration applied to the skin and via a foot bath was found to increase cellular magnesium concentration by 59.7% in 89% of study participants, measured through hair analysis1
- In a two-week pilot study, blood serum and urinary magnesium concentration significantly increased in a subgroup of non-athletes following the low-dose application of 56 mg of topical magnesium cream per day2
- Intracellular magnesium concentration significantly increased following the application of a topical magnesium chlorate spray to the skin for 4 months, measured by epithelial cell and blood serum analysis3

It makes my muscles feel much better within minutes. I use it for chronic muscle pain, and I love that it’s natural and something your body needs anyway.
“I use magnesium chloride that I rub on my legs and arms, it is very good for leg cramps. I used to have them almost every night, been using for over 2 years, very rarely have one. l wouldn’t be without it….
“This liquid has saved my life. I could not absorb magnesium through oral supplements but by rubbing magnesium chloride on my arms and legs twice a day I am now maintaining normal levels of magnesium in my system!”
