Canadian Catalog Update: Skin Care
Improving the Fullscript Canada catalog is an ongoing focus. Thanks to your feedback on the current catalog offering, we’ve been able to identify key supplement coverage gaps within our Canadian Catalog. Our Product Catalog team will continue to review this feedback over the coming weeks with the goal of increasing product coverage within the Canadian Catalog for specific conditions.
For our next update, we’re excited to announce that we’ve expanded our selection of products on Fullscript Canada to address skin care and conditions.

Canadian Catalog Update #3: Skin Care & Transdermal Magnesium
The skin is the largest organ of the human body and its functionality contributes significantly to your overall health. Some critical roles of your skin include:
- Regulating body temperature.
- Providing a barrier for pathogens & other environmental stimuli.
- Preventing dehydration.
- Protecting us from UV light.
- Converting sunlight to Vitamin D.
- Interacting with the environment through nerve receptors.
When the skin barrier has been compromised it not only affects the skin’s normal functions but is typically associated with itching, burning or overall discomfort. This is where topical salves are helpful in promoting healing and quick relief for these patients.
The benefits of topical magnesium
Magnesium is not only good to improve your skin’s appearance but it also targets the underlying causes of acne and other skin conditions. Magnesium benefits also include but are not limited to improved sleep, reduced inflammation, prevention of insulin resistance, and reduced anxiety and stress.
Applied onto the skin, magnesium is reported to have a therapeutic calming effect. This transdermal application is beneficial for absorption because the mineral is directly available for use by the cells.
New Skin Care Products
Here are some of the new Skin Care products now available on Fullscript Canada to help you deliver a greater level of care to your patients:
