Magnesium Chloride is commonly used as a more powerful Magnesium enriching bath salt than the commercially used Epsom Salts (Magnesium Sulphate).
It is also used as a fertilizer to cure Magnesium deficiency in plants and commonly as a health food supplement.
In the SPA industries Magnesium Chloride is used in floatation tanks, foot baths and as a skin softener/conditioner.
DetailsWe see Magnesium Chloride used in bath salts alongside Epsom salt, foot soaks and in the manufacture of tofu, where its role is to coagulate the soy milk to produce the rubbery curd. Known as nigari in Japan and lushui in China, the magnesium chloride apparently produces a smooth, delicate tofu, and despite having a bitter taste itself, does not taint the food. Less scrupulous purveyors of miracle cures claim it can ‘rejuvenate the ageing body’ which means that it is often found as a mineral supplement in health food shops.
It might seem at first sight that magnesium chloride is a bit of an inorganic wallflower, a compound that is limited to dull applications like de-icing. But with excellent green credentials and a role in making tofu, it should really be the darling of the environmentally conscious consumer.
