Elektra Magnesium Cream

“I have used Elektra Magnesium cream for years and find it to be the best compared to other brands. It easily rubs into skin and is great for my calf muscles to stop cramping at night. My husband uses it too for his back muscles (he is a farmer doing heavy lifting), and he gets great results. Love the scent of natural oils too.”

Elektra Magnesium Cream 1
  • Elektra Magnesium Cream – the world’s first natural magnesium cream for skin and muscle care.
  • MILD 15% magnesium chloride salt formula, easily absorbed, gentle on skin, calming and relaxing in massage.
  • 2 teaspoons = 300mg magnesium.
  • Herbal Magnesium Cream, the first version of magnesium cream developed in 2009, and still the most popular, offers superior soothing (non-irritating) conditioning effects for people with dry or sensitive skin conditions, including those with eczema, psoriasis or dermatitis. Rich nourishing plant oils and butters protect the skin barrier, whilst magnesium ions attract moisture in the skin reservoir, supporting collagen and elastin, and a more youthful looking complexion.  Anti-bacterial plant extracts also inhibit growth of pathogenic bacteria.
  • Three other varieties provide alternative fragrances and cream textures to suit different skin types, such as medium, combination or oily skin.
  • To maintain a more youthful looking complexion, gently massage facial muscles daily with Magnesium Cream, including neck and decolletage.  It can also be used all over the body as a rich moisturiser and muscle massage cream.
Elektra Magnesium Cream 2

Gentle enough for babies and children! Skin hydrating, protecting, soothing and comforting.

Designed and developed by our formulating chemist Peter Sanderson way back in 2009, Elektra Magnesium Cream was a ground-breaking innovative achievement. The Herbal version was the first of its kind that combined several plant oils, butters and extracts successfully with infusion of 15% magnesium chloride. It was stabilized using novel processes, and without resorting to chemical emulsifiers and preservatives such as phenoxyethanol, dimethicone, parabens or other cheap toxic petrochemical ingredients. Elektra Magnesium Creams features over 20 nutritious ingredients and provide high fat content to protect the skin barrier and facilitate efficient transdermal magnesium absorption. It is still Australia’s most popular and best loved magnesium cream, packed full of nutrition – because WE GIVE YOU MORE!

Magnesium massage

Benefits of MAGNESIUM MASSAGE to relax, recharge and recover.

Magnesium massage therapy offers important health benefits via blood and lymph circulation, waste clearance and detoxification, as well as relief of tension, stress and pain, which alleviates inflammation and promotes faster recovery from injury. Studies have shown that when magnesium is low, too much calcium settles in the soft tissue (muscles, ligaments, skin and endothelial linings) or joints of the body, causing stiffening via hypercalcemia. Athletes can be more prone to magnesium deficiency due to the excessive stresses of endurance exercise. Hypercalcemia and magnesium deficiency lengthens time of healing from injury and inflammation, whereas sufficient magnesium can support recovery faster. Magnesium massage promotes better circulation, flexibility and muscle recovery.

Natural anti-ageing skin care

Magnesium skin care is a revolution in skin health and beauty maintenance. One of the reasons magnesium keeps us younger and more ‘juicy’ longer is because it is used to synthesize collagen, which is a protein scaffolding that forms structures to hold moisture and other nutrients in skin, nails and bones to organs, muscles, ligaments, cartilage, lung sacs and blood vessels…

Gently massage in for period cramp

Symptoms of Pre Menstrual Tension PMT) or the inflammation of Endometriosis is exacerbated by magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is a natural anti-inflammatory.

Pregnancy case study (download pdf)

See how Michaela changed her lifestyle to all natural highly nutritious regime, with daily magnesium massage and skin care – particularly on tummy area to maintain stretch capacity and resilience of skin.

She also enjoyed a healthy pregnancy, using transdermal magnesium daily to massage tired sore muscles for relaxation and to promote better sleep.

magnesium sun

Before & after sun skin recovery

Elektra Magnesium Cream is high in plant fats which help to hold moisture in and protect skin. The infused magnesium works inside the skin to support cell repair and recovery. The presence of lipids and magnesium also promote production of vitamin D in the skin. Vitamin D is then absorbed into body from skin.
NOTE: Magnesium Cream is not a sun block and one should be mindful about safe length of time in sun, appropriate for skin type. If you do get a bit of sunburn, apply extra thick layer of magnesium cream for soothing cool comfort and extra hydration.


Magnesium Cream for pregnancy and breast-feeding mothers

Pregnant women, in particular, greatly benefit from using transdermal magnesium due to the higher magnesium demands of growing a baby in the womb, as well as the feeding demands of baby. We all know that breast feeding is a better stronger support for a developing immune system, but what does Mum have to support her own needs?
Foods are generally lower in magnesium today compared to over 50 years ago. We also lose a lot of magnesium under stress, and pregnancy presents a big stress for the body that can take some time to recover from. By using transdermal magnesium we can give the body the opportunity to take up from the skin the nutrition it needs for recovery, and in its own time. Nothing is being pushed artificially into the body. It just happens naturally and gently. CAUTION: Avoid applying to open wounds or nipple area where baby feeds. Time to RELAX and really enjoy your pregnancy, birth and beautiful new member of the family!

Studies Recommend Magnesium for Headaches 

Magnesium For Headaches Is Considered A Natural Remedy

Pain is a factor that people deal with all around the world, using all sorts of products to relieve them. However, many don’t consider using magnesium for headaches. Magnesium is an essential mineral that is required by the body. Ultimately, it’s responsible for the operation of several biological processes and brings hydration into cells, which avoids dehydration and consequent tension. Magnesium also improves blood circulation, which is heavily dependent on the right electrolyte balance. The problem is we don’t supply our body with enough magnesium nutrition via the food we ingest. 

Benefits Of Headache Relief

Studies have shown that people with low magnesium levels are susceptible to headaches and migraines.  A 2018 Review found: “Prophylactic treatment of migraine by means of high levels of magnesium dicitrate (600 mg) seems to be a safe and cost efficient strategy in clinical use.”   Research has been continuing in the use of magnesium for headaches.  A 2020 Review concluded: “Migraine is usually related to low amounts of Mg in serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Deficits in magnesium have significant role in the pathogenesis of migraine. Mg has been extensively used in migraine prophylaxis and treatment.”

The lack of magnesium affects neurotransmitters and prevents blood vessel constriction, which results in migraines. Regular doses of magnesium are shown to reduce migraines by 40%. Apart from assisting with relieving stress headaches, using magnesium regularly has several other benefits. 

  • Magnesium assists with lowering your blood sugar levels, thus reducing the risk of Type 2 diabetes. Research has demonstrated that a magnesium deficiency contributes to poor insulin resistance hence causing Type 2 diabetes. Even though more clinical research is required to treat diabetes with magnesium, preliminary studies have shown there are positive results. 
  • Most people focus on calcium for the health of their bones; however, the wonder mineral, magnesium, assists with improving the strength of bones. It increases bone density, which decreases the risk of diseases such as osteoporosis. Apart from directly assisting with bone crystal formation, magnesium regulates the calcium and vitamin D in the body, which controls the health of bones. 
  • If you’re a fitness fanatic, magnesium is crucial to the recovery of your muscles. The processes that assist you with working out is the removal of lactic acid and boosting muscles with glucose and energy. Intake of magnesium increases your cellular hydration, electrolyte balance and muscle performance levels if you’re at the gym or playing sport regularly.

About Elektra Magnesium

Our family operation commenced in late 2008 with a commitment to developing high-quality natural body care products containing magnesium. We understood that people were not taking in the correct amount of magnesium, and that pill supplements were expensive, not efficient and used for a only short time. Our goal was to create natural magnesium body care products that would be used regularly for skin care and relaxation, but also provide the body with its essential minerals.
