The main manufacturer of Epsom Salts in Europe produces three grades - Pharmaceutical, FCC and Technical. Pharmaceutical grade is the purest and used in the medical world for injections, antibiotics etc. FCC (formally known as BP grade) is the grade most commonly used in the bath - high purity. Technical grade would tend to be used in the agriculture world for crops or for other industrial uses such as making loft insulation. Never heard of "medical grade".
Is this purely for use in the bath. 27 Jun 2014
Correct, these Epsom salts are only for use in the bath (does say on the instructions). They are very good getting the pH level right on the skin and especially if you suffer from skin complaints. If you skin is dry, you should also put some baby oil into the bath water. For consumption use, only purchase the Epsom salts that are made for that purpose. A small tub can be purchased from the pharmacy.
What is the main difference between using epsom salt, and course grain sea salt?.which is what I always use in the bath 13 Mar 2014
Epsom salt is more efficient and gets absorbed better in the skin for removing toxins, for aching limbs and keeping the skin hydrated.
No idea. Best email the supplier direct.
I'm only a customer, I think you can contact the seller directly. Good luck! (I really love these salts and I'm a very very picky consumer who always checks twice or more before buying).
I need to know which grade of Epsom salts is better for bathing only......food or medical? 10 days ago
I would go with medical grade
Inside the box, does it come in 10 x 1KG resealable bags? If not, what is the best way of storing it? Does it matter if it comes in contact with air? 23 Jul 2014
It comes in one 10kg plastic bag within a box so it's not ideal to store. I thought I was ordering 10x 1 lg bags. I stored mined in an airing cupboard which was too warm and the salts went hard and it was difficult to use. I would stick with smaller bags personally.
I no longer have the box but the heavy polythene bag inside is approx 40cms x 40cms. Hope that helps.
The firm advertise that the magnesium and sulphate components enhance the production of insulin, which helps prevent diabetes or lesson its severity. It is made from a combination of magnesium and sulphate. I use it as a foot soak and find it most beneficial for many things.
