Mineral Swim magnesium pool relieves eczema for 11 year old Eva
Families who suffer with skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis can enjoy year-round swimming comfort with Mineral Swim. While chlorine helps to reduce bacteria it can cause infections in eczema-prone skin, it can act as an irritant, worsening symptoms and causing painful, itchy flare ups.
Maytronics have a found a way to reduce chlorine levels by up to 80% whilst achieving superior sanitisation without the irritation and pain which can be caused by exposure to chlorine and harsh chemicals.
A unique combination of magnesium, sourced from the Dead Sea in Israel, and the naturally purifying element known as ‘ozone’, creates the Mineral Swim purification system which is up to 3,000 times more powerful than traditional swimming pool chemical sanitation. Dermatologists and biochemists around the world agree on the calming and healing effects of magnesium on sensitive skin, with the ancient act of balneotherapy (bathing in natural mineral-rich water) still regularly recommended for sufferers of eczema.
Brisbane mother, Natalie McKeering says her daughter, Eva 11, experiences itching and tingling after exposure to regular chlorine in pools and has to shower immediately after every swim. “We have to keep Eva out of swim squad during term 3 because her eczema is worse during the dryer weather and her skin is just too sensitive for chlorine during that time,” said Natalie. “She recently swam in a pool treated with the magnesium and ozone combination and she didn’t even need to shower afterwards. The water was so much more gentle on her skin and it actually felt softer and more hydrated afterwards.”
Maytronics Mineral Swim™ is the only magnesium pool system available in Australia that includes the additional water purification of Ozone Swim™. Mineral Swim™ can be installed in existing domestic or public chlorine or saltwater pools. Eva swam at the Rackley pool in Pimpama.

a.) Does chlorine cause eczema?
It is critical to understand that eczema and other related skin conditions highly dependent on the individual. Most people will find that swimming, bathing, and showering in chlorinated water has no negative effects on their skin.
Because pool water is chlorinated to kill bacteria and other germs, it contains a variety of chemicals that can cause skin dryness and irritation. Eczema sufferers, however, may benefit from distilled chlorine to help reduce bacteria on their skin. To keep the water hard, pools are treated with calcium chloride to prevent corrosion of the pool's surfaces. Pools with calcium build-up, according to some research, are more likely to affect people with eczema.
b.) Is magnesium good for eczema?
Magnesium is especially important for eczema suffers. Magnesium aids in the lowering of inflammation, which is essential in the treatment of skin conditions. The advantages of magnesium also apply to sleep and stress as stress can aggravate eczema. Magnesium may help lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which may alleviate eczema symptoms.
Sleep is essential for everyone, but it is especially important for people who suffer from skin conditions. Our skin repairs and regenerates while we sleep. Magnesium, when combined with sunlight, has been shown in studies to improve eczema symptoms. This is why many people with skin conditions visit the Dead Sea.
