Gymnastics Chalk Crushed Blocks (formerly called Beta Chalk) is compliant with ISO 9002 standards. We do our best to get the best chalk for all ages!..
The Block is a 100% Magnesium Carbonate chalk crushed from blocks, specifically developed for gymnastics, rock climbing and other grip-sential sports. THE best pure magnesium carbonate available from the Dolomites in Italy.
There are a couple of things to consider when buying chalk. Some chalk contains a drying agent, which is very effective at keeping your hands dry, but can cause your hands to dry out and your skin to crack, especially if you have sensitive skin. Generally use of a good hand moisturiser (eg Climb On!) after a gymnastic session sorts out this problem.
Something you may not know: most chalk used to come from Italy, and was as pure as the driven snow. As price became more and more of an issue most manufacturers began sourcing their chalk from the Far East. Whilst this chalk is still perfectly good, it is harder to absolutely guarantee it does not contain impurities and/or bulking agents. Therefore, Beta Chalk is certainly the best product and best value chalk available for those who wish to guarantee they get 100% Magnesium Carbonate.

Our verdict, the chalk crushed block feels almost damp to the touch but this was from the incredibly light almost fluffy texture. The chalk is less dusty and stays on fingers longer and is less likely to become airborne which can be unpleasant especially indoors.
