Benefits of Including Magnesium in Your Skincare Routine

Magnesium is a quiet hero of the natural world and getting enough is essential for maintaining good health, but many people get less than they need in their diet because New Zealand soils are low in magnesium. Sore muscles, restless legs, sleep issues, stress, anxiety, insomnia, cramp and migraines are all indicators of low magnesium levels.

Unlike most topical Magnesium Creams, ours is packed with nutrients allowing for a rich magnesium treatment like no other. This is one of the main reasons that more often than not our cream exceeds customers’ expectations, and has even been used to soothe symptoms of arthritis and other aches and pains.

This is because when applied topically, our NZ made natural Magnesium Cream is absorbed through to the skin to directly target areas of pain and concern. But don’t take our word for it. You can read first-hand experience in some of our customer reviews at the bottom of this page, to find out why customers find this magical cream to be a wonderful ‘go to’ to relieve discomfort, almost immediately.

How does topical Capsaicin Cream work?

Capsaicin cream works by temporarily reducing pain signals in the area where it is applied. The active ingredient in capsaicin cream is capsaicin, which is derived from chili peppers.

When you apply capsaicin cream to your skin, it binds to certain receptors called TRPV1 receptors. These receptors are found on nerve endings and are involved in transmitting pain signals to your brain. When capsaicin binds to these receptors, it initially causes a sensation of heat or burning.

This initial heat sensation is followed by a process called desensitization. With continued use of capsaicin cream, the TRPV1 receptors become less sensitive to pain signals. This means that the pain signals from the area where the cream is applied are reduced or blocked from reaching your brain.

Capsaicin cream also helps to deplete a substance called substance P. Substance P is a neuropeptide involved in transmitting pain signals. Capsaicin causes the release and eventual depletion of substance P from nerve endings, further reducing the transmission of pain signals.

Overall, capsaicin cream provides temporary relief from pain by reducing the sensitivity of nerve endings and blocking or reducing the transmission of pain signals. It is commonly used for conditions such as arthritis, muscle strains, and nerve pain.

However, it's important to follow the instructions for use and avoid applying capsaicin cream to broken or irritated skin to prevent excessive irritation or discomfort.

How to use Magnesium, Kawakawa & Capsaicin Cream

  • Apply a small amount of cream with fingers and rub it well into the affected area 3 or 4 times daily.
  • Wash hands after application if hands are not the treatment site or if applying the cream to someone else.
  • If using for relief in the hands, do not wash the hands for at least 30 minutes after applying the cream.
  • Capsaicin must be used regularly every day as directed. Immediate pain relief is not to be expected, depending on the type of pain. The full effect may take several weeks of regular use to achieve.
  • Continue to use capsaicin cream regularly if required.


  • Do not use if you are allergic to Capsaicin, or to hot peppers (from the Capsaicin family)
  • Capsaicin cream should not be applied to broken or infected skin.
  • Avoid use near eyes or other sensitive areas of the body. If capsaicin gets into the eyes, flush them with water. Wash other sensitive areas with warm soapy water
  • Tight bandages should not be applied on top of capsaicin cream.

Side Effects

The most common side effect of capsaicin use is a feeling of warmth or a tingling sensation after application. This sensation is related to the action of capsaicin on the skin and is to be expected. This sensation usually diminishes after the first few days of application and in most cases will disappear with time and continued use.

Methods used to reduce this sensation include:

  • Avoid taking a hot bath or shower just before or after applying capsaicin cream.
  • Try to keep cool, do not wear tight clothing or become too warm as heat may increase the sensation.

How does topical Capsaicin Cream work?

Capsaicin cream reduces pain signals temporarily by binding to TRPV1 receptors found on nerve endings. This causes an initial heat sensation and subsequent desensitization of the receptors with continued use, blocking pain signals from reaching the brain.

  • What is the difference between using a magnesium cream and a magnesium spray?

    The main difference lies in the application and absorption.

    A magnesium cream is a topical formulation that is applied directly to the skin and massaged in. It contains other anti-inflammatory and nourishing ingredients providing a moisturizing and nourishing experience, allowing the magnesium to gradually absorb into the skin over time.

    On the other hand, a topical magnesium spray has a higher percentage of Magnesium and is quickly absorbed into the skin. It can also be used in conjunction with the cream for those needing a greater Magnesium boost.

    Both options can be effective in replenishing magnesium levels, so the choice between a cream or spray depends on personal preference and desired application method.

  • What is Kawakawa good for?

    Kawakawa is known for its various benefits. It has traditionally been used for its anti-inflammatory properties, making it effective in soothing skin irritations, relieving muscle soreness, and reducing redness.

    Additionally, it possesses antioxidant compounds that can help protect the skin from environmental damage.
