Dead Sea salt is an extraordinary compound that is great for the skin. This is not some revelation or recent development. It is a time-honored fact. As a source for natural healing the Dead Sea consists of about two dozen beneficial minerals that provide healthful nutrients for the skin and body. Unlike ocean sea water, which contains well over ninety percent sodium chloride, Dead Sea water contains approximately ten percent sodium chloride.
The balance is made up of various other salts, most predominantly magnesium chloride, which makes up a little more than fifty percent and potassium chloride, which makes up a little less than forty percent. The rest are present in trace quantities, but collectively they are remarkably effective in healing and rejuvenating the skin. They also play an important role in the nourishment, restoration, and regeneration of the skin’s cells. They are easily absorbed and penetrate deeply, stimulating and strengthening many of the body’s other cells that perform important functions.
People have been taking healthful advantage of the mineral rich water and mud of the Dead Sea for several thousands of years. In fact, millions of people from all over the world have journeyed to the Dead Sea to benefit from its unique properties. Early Egyptian hieroglyphics even portray the popularity of Dead Sea mud baths during Pharaoh’s time. History is rich with documented evidence espousing the benefits and spreading the word about the wondrous effects of minerals produced from the Dead Sea. So it stands to reason that using its salts in making soap, as well as many cosmetics and facial mud masks, is one of the surest ways of conveying these miraculous benefits worldwide.
Dead Sea salt soaps are imbued with the healing qualities associated with the sea itself; and the value of these qualities is virtually priceless. Bathing with the soap has proven to be beneficial to people who suffer from skin ailments like acne, eczema, and psoriasis; and it is effective for the control and prevention of these diseases. The quality of minerals makes the soap an efficient combatant against stress and aging skin. It generates a calming effect on the nervous system, stimulates the circulatory system, and strengthens bones, teeth, and nails.
Because these nutrients and minerals are so easily absorbed and penetrate so deeply, they have an impact on many areas of the body. They alleviate pain, interact with and help balance the body’s natural minerals, are essential for normal metabolism of insulin and glucose, and help the body in the production of red blood cells.
Historically, the Dead Sea has been portrayed as a major player in human physiology. The soaps manufactured from its salts are so much more than just cleansing agents for the skin. They are about replenishing, restoring, and regenerating the cells in all the organs in the body.
