Australian Made with Quality Natural Ingredients
Elektra Magnesium Cream has about 20 ingredients. There is no other cream or lotion on the market that is so packed full of nutrients as Elektra Magnesium Cream – the original and still the best!
It is packed with potent wild sourced ELEKTRA™ magnesium chloride flakes (food grade), vitamin-rich raw shea butter plus other plant oils offering a balanced broad spectrum of omega 3, 6 and 9. It should be sold for double what it is for the wealth of ingredients that provide good nutrition.
Chemicals are cheap. Natural and organic plant oils cost more. Elektra Magnesium Creams are rich in plant fats and contain the highest quality natural ingredients with no useless or wasted ingredients such as chemical thickeners to pad out a watery liquid or magnesium oil, as is common in other brands.
Read labels! The ingredients lower on the ingredients list of labels are the smallest components. If the plant oils are nearer the bottom then they are present only in small quantity.
Also look for the presence of toxic ingredients when you check product labels, because what goes on goes in. There are now many toxic chemical ingredients in skin care products but common ones to look out for are parabens, phenoxyethanol, dimethicone, oxybenzoates, pthalates and other chemicals in ‘parfum’ and petrochemical products like paraffin and petrolatum – and the euphemism often used as ‘mineral oil’.
In addition, there are now other products that call themselves ‘magnesium cream’ but are only just a thick paste which is hard to absorb and stays on the surface of the skin feeling sticky and irritating. They are priced at around $50 per 100g which is about double the price of Elektra Magnesium Cream.
Volume for volume Elektra Magnesium Cream trumps them all in nutritional delivery, absorbability and beautiful skin conditioning properties – as well as THE best value for money!
They just feel sooooo good! Enjoy…
Preliminary STUDY of transdermal permeation of magnesium cream formulations across skin
Conference Paper • October 2012 DOI: 10.1684/mrh.2012.0327
Conference: XIIIth International Magnesium Symposium
1st Mayuramas Sang-ngern 0.17 • University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo, 2nd Jun Byoung, 3rd Hamad Mazen, Last Mahavir Chougule 27.98 • University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo
Objective: The purpose of this study was to compare the passive permeation across human skin of magnesium (Mg) from pharmaceutical grade Mg chloride (MgCl2) formulated in cream to that of pharmaceutical grade MgCl2 in solution. Material and methods: The permeation was performed using human cadaver skin (Pelfreez, USA). The skin was soaked in the receptor medium (phosphate buffer saline 7.4) to equilibrate and then cut into appropriate size for the study. The transdermal Diffusion Cell Drive Console (Logan System FDC-6) was used to study the permeation. The transdermal permeation efficiency of Mg from MgCl2 cream I and MgCl2cream II was studied across skin compared to positive control MgCl2 solution and negative control phosphate buffer solution. The cream or MgCl2 solution equivalent to 2.76 mg of Mg were applied per 2.52 cm2 of skin and mounted on diffusion cell. Samples were collected after 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 24 h and analyzed using atomic absorption spectroscopy at 285 nm. The experiments were performed in triplicates. The results were analyzed using unpaired t-test.
The cumulative Mg permeation from Mg cream I, Mg cream II, MgCl2 solution, and phosphate buffer across human skin after 24 h were found to be 29.79 ± 13.92, 24.53 ± 9.98, 6.18 ± 1.36, and 5.62 ± 1.83 μg/2.52 cm2 respectively. Both creams showed statistically significant (p<0.05) Mg permeation compared with the two control solutions; Mg cream I showed greater Mg permeation than Mg cream II, but the difference was not statistically significant. The MgCl2 solution showed a similar result to that of phosphate buffer.
A formulated Mg cream was able to successfully deliver the Mg of pharmaceutical grade MgCl2 across human skin. Transdermal Mg may play an important role treating symptoms of sub-optimal Mg status.

COMPARISON with 'Magnesium Lotion'?
Nothing beats Elektra Magnesium Cream when it comes to the amount of nutrition being delivered and great value for money.The original and still the best!
Our Raw Shea Butter Is Fair Trade
FEED YOUR SKIN THE BEST NUTRITIONALLY BALANCED MEAL!
Elektra Magnesium Cream is a convenient opportunity for the body to absorb magnesium via the skin AND to maintain a healthy beautiful looking skin quality. It provides a complex mix of nutrients designed as a complete meal for the skin which enhances hydration, skin protection, healing and recovery.
Used in massage of muscles and joints it also assists muscle relaxation and increased joint and ligament flexibility. The body will absorb as much as it needs to achieve homeostasis. It is self-regulating transdermally. The skin acts as a nutrient reservoir, holding the fats, water and magnesium ions in the collagen scaffolding of the epidermis where the tiny capillaries of the dermis underneath have access to absorb the nutrients required. Magnesium is constantly used by cells and needs to be replenished on a daily basis.Elektra Magnesium Cream acts as a beautifully hydrating skin conditioner, whilst also providing magnesium and other trace minerals. It is made from a blend of exquisite organic or wild harvested plant oils and butters like African shea butter (fair trade), macadamia nut oil, almond seed oil, apricot kernel oil, cocoa butter, mango seed butter and others. Magnesium chloride is infused with the oils in a special process, and pure essential oils are added for fragrance enhancement. One all-over application (one dessertspoon) gives 250 to 300mg of elemental magnesium ions.
Massage with Magnesium Cream & Spritz
Elektra Magnesium Cream works to hydrate, condition and rejuvenate the skin. You can use as much as you like. It takes a few minutes to rub in this rich cream packed with nutrients, and about 10-20 minutes to be fully absorbed inside the epidermis, leaving a smooth finish and healthy glow to the skin. Avoid eye area or broken skin, as it can sting. If you feel a tingling sensation, this is normal as magnesium stimulates and improves (normalizes) circulation. Magnesium chloride ions (like sodium, calcium or potassium electrolytes) deliver an ionic charge – a tiny electrical stimulus to the nerve endings. The thinner and dryer the skin the more sensation is felt as the mineral ions pass through.
Hot water soaking with the magnesium chloride flakes also hydrates the skin and can avoid the tingling sensation, however, the higher the concentration, the more likely the sensation. It’s best to try varying concentrations until you find what is suitable for you. This also varies over time as you become more tolerant. The better hydrated and conditioned the skin, the better its absorption capacity of magnesium ions.
Great for MASSAGE or After Sun Recovery! When used in MASSAGE Elektra Magnesium Creams help stimulate blood flow, oxygenation and circulation, and helps to relax and relieve tight muscles and joints. The extra stimulation of massage provides a mechanical ‘push’ to the lymphatic and nervous-electrical system which enhances magnesium penetration to muscle cells. It is also effective in relieving itchy inflamed skin. If you happen to get a bit too much sun, apply extra magnesium cream to help soothe and rehydrate.
As a Deodorant: Elektra Magnesium Cream can also be used as a natural deodorant because it contains natural preservatives that inhibit bacterial growth associated with underarm odour.
After Sun Recovery…
Elektra Magnesium Cream was applied very thickly immediately after sunburn for fast recovery and normal skin colour the following day.
Psoriasis cleared up 80%… Experiment over 4 months using Elektra Magnesium Cream daily. The skin started to heal uniformly all over Wendy’s body, despite only applying to one arm and one leg. She had suffered severe psoriasis for several years with no other remedies having worked. (Full recovery is achievable in shorter time in conjunction with dietary changes and larger doses of transdermal magnesium.)
Baby’s crying fit is quelled after massage with Elektra Magnesium Cream. For young children just a teaspoon massaged into back helps calm down irritation. The zzzz’s don’t take long to follow afterwards – and great for stressed Mums too!
Note for Sensitive Skin
Elektra Magnesium Cream is the ideal alternative to magnesium oil because it is much more soothing and gentle for the skin. Even toddlers can have a little back massage with Elektra Magnesium Cream before bed for a relaxing and restful sleep. Of course it should not be applied to broken skin because the salts can sting. In some cases of extra sensitive skin a tingling or bity sensation can be felt on initial application. Most people don’t notice it, but in case you do, it’s only temporary during absorption. This usually happens if the skin is particularly thin and/or dry, or if you have perspired a lot and washed away some of your natural skin oil. In this case the nerve endings that meet the epidermis are closer to the surface and feel more sensitive. Over time a better tolerance is built up, as magnesium is used to build collagen. Over time this helps the skin improve hydration and lipid carrying capacity. As the skin is revitalised and regains its integrity, the sensation dissipates. You can add any kind of extra plant oil (eg. coconut oil, rosehip oil, avocado oil, nut oils etc) on top of the magnesium cream application to tone down the tingling if this happens. The more fats – the less sensation.
