EVOH is a water-soluble polymer and lines all BetterYou Magnesium Flakes resealable pouches. Its biodegradable properties allow our pouches to be 100% recyclable. The first of their kind.
Unlike other pouch linings, BetterYou pouches do not contain chlorine, dioxins, toxic gases or harmful metals but are composed of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. They are even more efficient as our linings have a 10,000 times greater gas barrier than standard LDPE film hence preserving Flake freshness while helping to reduce waste.

The magnesium chloride we 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.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of our products, occasionally crystallisation can occur in the pump mechanism, preventing it from working. This can often occur if the oral spray hasn't been stored at room temperature or hasn't been used in a while.
This can usually be fixed by removing the pump from the bottle and soaking it in warm water for no less than 10 minutes. After soaking, press the pump down firmly a few times whilst it is immersed in the water to clear any crystallisation. The pump must be clear of all water and dry before returning to the bottle.
If this doesn't resolve the issue, then please contact our Customer Experience Team here.
Our magnesium supplements have been developed to be applied directly to the skin, so we do not recommend taking them orally.
There are no contraindications with any of our transdermal magnesium products.
Transdermal magnesium is perfectly safe to use during pregnancy with no restrictions on dosage levels during this time.
While some essential oils are advised to be avoid during pregnancy, those included in our products are classified as safe. However, if you have any concerns relating to your your own health, please seek the advise of your midwife or GP prior to use.
You do not need to worry about overdosing when using transdermal magnesium. Upper limits are only set when using the product orally, as large doses can have a laxative effect due to it being a natural relaxant.
Toxic symptoms from increased magnesium intake are not common as the body eliminates excess amounts, unless there are serious problems with kidney function.
