Poltava's Bischofite – is a natural crystalline polymineral of the Permian period. Due to deposit's great depth, it was safely protected over 200 million years by a natural barrier which was separating it from any forms of toxins or harmful impurities. Bicshofite is also known as a Salt of the Dead Sea, though it's composition purer and richer. Due to its chemical formula (MgCl2 • 6H2O), Bischofite can be easily dissolved in water, becoming a clear liquid, with oily consistency, yellowish in color, and odorless. The main component of Bischofite is magnesium chloride (95-96%). Bischofite also contains calcium sulfate, calcium chloride, calcium hydrogen carbonate, sodium chloride (with a total content of minerals 400-450 g/l), sodium, iodine, iron, bromide, silicon dioxide, molybdenum, titanium, lithium, and traces of almost all chemical elements of the periodic table. Even though, Poltava's bischofite may be used in many industrial sectors, its high magnesium content allows Bischofite to be used in heath related areas such as: food industry (as an additive to food products, known as E-511 – neutral thickener), cosmetology, pharmacology and medicine.
