400 Years Young!

Four centuries after the restorative properties of Epsom salt were first identified, pioneering British brand Newton Wood is keen to show how this time-honoured remedy can fit seamlessly – and luxuriously – into contemporary living.

As few of us will need reminding, life finds all kinds of ways of taking it out of you as time goes on. A long day at work (or just the journey there and back) a tough day of walking, gardening, DIY or sport or even a few hours with the grandchildren are all enough to leave you feeling tired and jaded in body and mind. Plus, of course, age brings with it a whole panoply of aches, pains, complaints and conditions that make day-to-day living awkward and uncomfortable.

Modern science has answers for them all; but most of us don’t want to be on any more medicines than we are already. And with so much information and opinion about, especially online, it can be difficult to know what and whom to trust.

Happily, the solution to a great many of these everyday issues has been with us for years – 401, in fact. Because it was in 1618 that the restorative properties of Epsom salt (the common name for magnesium sulphate) were first identified. Today, this remarkable product is as effective and relevant as ever – and thanks to new British brand Newton Wood, it’s even easier to make it part of your daily health, wellbeing and beauty routines.

Newton Wood is the world’s first super-premium beauty and wellness brand bringing this traditional remedy to a global audience. A 100% natural, organic and sustainable product, Newton Wood crystals are made from the highest-grade Epsom salt, and free from artificial colours, perfumes, anti-caking agents and other additives.

Soaking in Epsom salt dissolved in warm water has long been recommended for relaxing and reviving tired muscles and joints after hard work or exercise, and easing aches and pains associated with arthritis, fibromyalgia and other conditions. It can also help alleviate common cold and flu symptoms, helping you on the road to recovery, and soothe a variety of skin conditions, including eczema and psoriasis.

Plus, Newton Wood crystals make a wonderful natural addition to your daily beauty and bathing routines. The crystals dissolve easily in shampoo, where they act as a gentle but effective deep cleanser, leaving hair softer and more vibrant. Mix them with your favourite face cream and you have an instant microdermabrasion treatment, providing a natural, organic alternative to facial scrubs containing harmful plastic microbeads and leaving your skin feeling smoother and looking brighter.

Newton Wood crystals are supplied in attractive biodegradable packaging designed and produced in the UK, in a range of sizes from 250g travel packs to 1kg packs to keep in the bathroom at home.
