Pure Dead Sea Salt: nothing added nor removed

The Dead Sea is a saline lake in the Jordan valley, which is 76 km long and up to 17 km wide. It is 365 meters in depth. and located 400 meters (1,300 feet) below sea level. This is lowest point on the surface of the earth, and it came into being under the tectonic activity of the area.

Over many thousands of years Dead Sea Salt (DSS) has become legendary for its curative and beautifying properties. Compared to ordinary table salt which contains only sodium and chloride, DSS contains at least 21 minerals in high concentration, 12 of which are not found in any other sea salt. In fact it contains in a sample 10 times the amount of salt than the Mediterranean or Great Salt Lakes equivalents.

This wealth of minerals, such as Magnesium are known to accelerate cell metabolism for amazing skin healing properties, detoxification, skin nourishment and relief from inflammation, wounds and pain. DSS and Epsom Salts (Magnesium Sulphate) soaks are the safest way to replace Magnesium loss as it is taken up through the skin which as the largest organ of the body. Some other minerals in DSS include Calcium, Sulphur Trioxide, Bromide, Chloride, Iodine, Zinc, with Sodium, Aluminium, Titanium, Potassium oxides and Phosphorus Pentoxide.

The Jewish historian Josephus Flavius writing in the first century AD recommended Dead Sea bath salt to his Roman audience: “The Dead Sea can not be praised too highly…travellers take as much of this salt as they are able to home with them, because it heals the human body and is therefore used in many medicines.

The beautiful Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt was esteemed for her magically youthful good looks throughout her whole life, even as she aged. The real secret to the beauty of her silky skin was the anti ageing effect of these bath salts, mud and cosmetics made with Dead Sea salt. This was gathered for her at the factories she had built on the shores of the Dead Sea. The ruins of those sites can still be seen today at Erin Brooke and Erin Geed and they stand as testimonials to the ageless beauty secret of Dead Sea salt.

Recent research on Dead Sea salt studied its effects on patients suffering from Psoriasis. Dr. J. Arndt, made a study on fifty patients treated with Dead Sea salts aged between 14 and 77 years old. Patients were treated with 3-4 DSS baths per week for 3 weeks. Results show that majority of the symptoms were significantly diminished within the first week of treatment. Steady improvements were observed in the following weeks. The most important alleviation was from the itching associated with Psoriasis, while relief from sleep disturbances were also noted. More than half (54%) of the patients were totally healed while 22 cases showed markedly impressive improvements.

Salt extracted from the Dead Sea is a popular ingredient of many common bath products including bath salts, scrubs, foot scrubs, body wraps, bath bombs and soaps and a wide variety of other cosmetic products including, mud packs and make-up.
