The Best Natural Magnesium Products in 2021

By Melissa Fine, GoodnessMe Nutritionist & Product Advisor

Magnesium, what don’t you do? This mighty mineral plays a role in 600+ biochemical reactions in the body, from converting our food into energy, to helping our muscles contract and relax. 

Magnesium is abundant in plant-based wholefoods. It’s also available in supplement form, and you can reap its benefits further by applying it topically; you’d be surprised at the number of health, beauty, and skincare products magnesium is added to today. 

We’ve rounded up our top unique magnesium products available in Australia that get the GoodnessMe tick of approval. There’s something for everyone here. 

Amazing Oils Magnesium Flakes

Whether they’re lurking in a food or a beauty product, we say NO to unnecessary artificial ingredients at GoodnessMe. Amazing Oils’ Magnesium Flakes get our tick of approval because they’re free from the fake ingredients often found in bath products like bath bombs (think artificial colours and fragrances); instead they’re made with nothing but the purest form of naturally occurring magnesium (magnesium chloride) to help relax tired, aching muscles.

No bath? Give yourself a foot soak instead. Heaven after a long day on your feet. 


Acure Charcoal Magnesium Deodorant Stick

From its short and sweet list of recognisable and cruelty-free ingredients to the fact that it’s formulated without baking soda (not fun for sensitive pits), this natural deodorant ticks so many boxes. Not only is Acure’s Charcoal Magnesium Deodorant free from ingredients we’d rather not see in our deo (aluminium, sulphates, parabens), it’s also backed by rave reviews online. 

The unique formula absorbs moisture thanks to ingredients like corn starch, all while neutralising odour thanks to the alkalising properties of magnesium hydroxide. We also love the addition of charcoal for its detoxifying properties. 


Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil

The OG magnesium oil, this magical stuff is applied topically so that it can be absorbed transdermally, or through the skin. An easy and different way to deliver more muscle-relaxing magnesium to wherever you feel it’s needed, whether that’s restless legs or a sore belly.


Green Nutritionals Marine Magnesium Powder

All magnesium supplements are pretty much same-same, right? Wrong. A good chunk of magnesium supplements are made with synthetic magnesium; not the case with Green Nutritionals Marine Magnesium, which is naturally and sustainably derived from clean, mineral-dense Irish Atlantic waters. Simply add a teaspoon to a glass of water, juice, or smoothie and you have yourself a natural magnesium supplement that also gives you an array of other plant-sourced minerals for enhanced magnesium absorption. 


Ugly Bits Blemish Correction Stick

Organically sourced magnesium gives your breakouts the TLC they’ve been asking for in this fast-acting, concentrated formula. Offering exfoliating AND healing properties, this small but mighty stick can help reduce everything from pimples and blackheads to ingrowns and age spots, so get rolling. 


In a nutshell:

Magnesium is the mineral that keeps on giving; beyond being ubiquitous in plant-based ingredients, its benefits may also be reaped through supplements and even skincare products.
