Lil' Mo' Maggie was formulated for babies and children because they have delicate and sensitive skin and don't need quite as much magnesium as grown-ups do. We've added a lot of extra Shea butter to make it even more creamy! All the rich butters and oils in Lil' Mo' Maggie are certified ORGANIC and serve to give a more soothing application of Magnesium brine onto the skin. Applying magnesium to the skin is a superior way of getting Magnesium and trace minerals directly into the bloodstream and right to the cells where minerals are needed the most. No need to go through the stomach and liver! *Customers have reported that applying at nap time, bed time, moments of agitation brought a calming effect. Also reported was relief from cramps and sore muscles - even headaches. (*For informational purposes only. No medical advice is expressed or implied)
In the beginning, apply to non-sensitive parts of of your baby's or child's skin. We strongly recommend applying TO THE BOTTOMS OF THE FEET to begin, to allow your baby/child to build up their mineral levels and overcome any sensitivity (which can show as tingling/itching/stinging. If any stinging occurs, product can be rinsed off but it's best to leave it on at least 20-30 minutes for mineral absorption to occur properly. As time goes on and the product is used daily, any sensitivity should abate and the lotion can be introduced elsewhere. Remember, all minerals are a salt, which can be irritating to skin (which is why we added the minerals to our lotion, so it would be less irritating). Never rub on hands because your baby/child may rub his/her eyes, causing stinging. Avoid eyes, mucous membranes, and sensitive areas. Rinse hands after application to avoid rubbing eyes.
