Product Application and Usage
Due to its gelled composition, this unique formulation performs exceptionally in applications that involve tissue manipulation, such as massage therapy. Compared to traditional massage gels, Ancient Minerals® delivers superior performance while also delivering high amounts of magnesium and MSM for both topical and whole body benefits.
Our Gel is designed to remain hydrated on the skin rather than fully absorbed for a high viscous glide during application. Simply apply the desired amount into a cupped hand and rub into the skin thoroughly. Repeat as appropriate, covering any areas needing special attention.
Ancient Minerals® Ultra MSM
MSM or methylsulfonylmethane is an organic sulfur compound known for a multitude of benefits. It is an important nutrient for joint mobility, muscle recovery, healthy skin, healthy aging, and immune system support.
MSM also maximizes the benefits of exercise and fitness through inflammation relief and muscle recovery, sulfur playing a role in both collagen and keratin. Sulfur supports healthy skin, hair, and nails, whilst it also encourages cellular detoxification and glutathione production contributing to optimal health.
With a slightly lower magnesium concentration and the skin-soothing properties of sulfur, Ancient Minerals® Ultra products are well-suited for those with sensitive skin.

Magnesium Gel and Your Health
Leading nutrition experts consider magnesium supplementation essential due to the prevalence of magnesium deficiency in the modern diet and magnesium’s crucial role in over 300 fundamental biochemical reactions.
Magnesium has been placed on the short list of nutrients of concern by the U.S. Department of Health 1 yet many continue to be unaware of the role magnesium and hypomagnesemia play in optimal health. A study by scientists at the Centers for Disease Control, published in the Journal of Nutrition, explains:
Despite the role of magnesium in maintaining health, much of the U.S. population has historically not consumed adequate amounts of magnesium… Magnesium is an essential element that is crucial to hundreds of physiologic processes in humans. Not surprisingly, inadequate intake of magnesium has been linked to various adverse health outcomes, including the development of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and headaches. Furthermore, magnesium is important in bone growth and may play a role in athletic performance.” 2
For those who suspect magnesium deficiency and hypomagnesemia may play a role in chronic ailments, or those who proactively supplement magnesium to achieve optimal health, there are several types of oral magnesium available. Yet oral magnesium is not tolerated well by certain individuals, and some forms have been shown to have as low as a 4% absorption rate.
Magnesium gel, a form of transdermal magnesium, is unique in that it is:
- Easily assimilated by the body.
- Delivered through the skin and therefore directly available to muscular systems that require magnesium to function.
- Tolerated well, avoiding problems of irritation and loose stools by bypassing the digestive tract
While the benefits of aloe to the skin are familiar to many, the application of magnesium chloride to the skin brings a new level to the benefits of healing massage and topical therapies. Topical, transdermal magnesium has shown marked benefits for enhancing skin barrier function, reducing inflammation, speeding wound healing, and augmenting skin cell hydration.
The Ancient Minerals® line of topical magnesium products, including our magnesium oil spray, magnesium lotion, and magnesium bath flakes, combine the healing power of the body’s largest organ — the skin — with the life-sustaining properties of one of our most vital minerals.
Topical magnesium is safe, convenient, affordable and effective, allowing you to maximize your magnesium intake without out fear of diarrhea, loose stools, and digestion issues associated with oral supplements.
