What is the source of the magnesium chloride used in Magnesium Flakes?
The magnesium chloride BetterYou use is a solution mined in Veendam in the Netherlands. It is mined from an ancient seabed that has been condensed and purified for over 250 million years. To mine the magnesium chloride, spring water is carefully pumped down to dissolve the seam and the solution is brought up to the surface. This solution is the foundation of our Magnesium Body Sprays, Lotions, Gel and Flakes.

Why does my skin tingle after or when using the Magnesium Flakes?
The most important fact to remember is that this isn’t an allergic reaction to magnesium, as magnesium is naturally found within the body and is vital to good health. This can actually be a sign the body’s cellular magnesium levels are low. This tingling sensation is caused by the magnesium, which is a large molecule being rapidly absorbed through the epidermis.  Also if you have dry or broken skin it may heighten the sensation so avoid these areas.  This reaction will decrease as your body’s cellular magnesium levels increase.
