Pharmaceutical Grade Epsom Salt


Epsom salt pharmaceutical grade

Our Epsom salt is pharmaceutical grade, so is suitable both for personal, pharmaceutical and industrial uses.


“Epsom salt, otherwise known as magnesium sulphate (MgS04-7H2O), owes its name to a town in England – Epsom – where it was first extracted from mineral water.


Epsom salt is a close relative of magnesium chloride, in its benefits, uses and applications. It is best known to us as a bath salt, for its relaxing action on the mind and body. When dissolved in water, it is alkaline, softening the water and making a great natural cleansing agent.


Its high level of magnesium makes it valuable for people suffering with muscle cramps, joint stiffness, stress, anxiety and other symptoms of magnesium deficiency. A great advantage of this salt is its low price which combined with its multiple benefits ensures the product’s unrivaled popularity among relaxing bath salts.


Epsom salt is used not only externally, but internally as well, in a number of detoxification programs, including liver detox. The salt loosens the stool thanks to its high level of magnesium, and binds toxins, especially phenols, thanks to its high content of sulphur.


Other applications include using it in shampoos, conditioners, body scrubs, compresses, soaps, creams. Adding the salt to a bath produces a wonderful de-stressing and sleep-inducing effect, so is great for those who suffer from insomnia and anxiety. It will also promote removal of toxins and increase circulation. I have discovered another curious property of Epsom salt to reduce the appearance of bruises after a hot bath to which 500g of salt has been added.”
