Zechstein Magnesium Flakes come from the purest known to date natural source of magnesium chloride, the Zechstein Sea.   It is extracted from an underground layer in the North of the Netherlands, however the Zechstein Sea (that existed over 250 million years ago) stretches underneath the North Sea and Northern Europe. 

Why is Zechstein Magnesium Flakes or Oil considered more pure than other sources?  

Other sources of Magnesium, such as the Dead Sea, Tibet or other surface level sources, the salt has to be 'cleaned' or processed to remove other elements.  Zechstein magnesium chloride is that it comes from the ground already as magnesium chloride (dissolved in water at 31% concentration). Nothing further has to be done to it. To achieve flake form, the water that was pumped into the underground layer is evaporated out.

Natural Epsom Salts are sourced from an ancient deposit in Germany. Magnesium Flakes (Magnesium Chloride) is also sourced from northern Europe from an ancient deposit formed millions of years ago. Dead Sea salts are a particularly mineral rich sea salt that is specific to Dead Sea. All the Bath Salts ranged by The Salt Box are natural, and sustainably sourced, however many other brands available are artificially manufactured in factories.
