Dead Sea Mud: Legendary for its rich concentration of salt and rare minerals, the Dead Sea has long been praised for its healing qualities and therapeutic properties. At 1,290 feet below sea level, it is one of the most saline lakes in the world with a mineral concentration of 33%, compared to the average 3% in the world's oceans. Fed mainly by the Jordan River, the Dead Sea has no outlet and loses large amounts of water by evaporation into the hot dry air. This results in a giant reservoir of salts and minerals.
The mud has spent tens of thousands of years soaking in the salts of the dead sea, absorbing its minerals.
Each year, thousands of people visit the Dead Sea to float in the salty water and cover themselves with the mineral-rich mud. The water of the Dead Sea, which contains 21 minerals, many of which are found in no other sea or ocean, has been a beauty secret for millennia. Cleopatra went to great expense to obtain exclusive rights over the Dead Sea area.
The Dead Sea’s most precious resource, Dead Sea Mud, comes from the sedimentation of plant and sea-life deposits over thousands of years. The mud is packed with organic nutrients, proteins, minerals, and natural enzymes that help hydrate the skin and reduce inflammation which may be beneficial for symptoms of psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis.
Dead Sea Mud stimulates blood circulation, rejuvenates the skin, and leaves the skin glowing and youthful-looking. It deep cleans to remove impurities which can help ease acne-prone skin. The fine, natural grain of the mud softly yet effectively sloughs off dead skin cells and leaves the skin looking fresh and radiant.
The Dead Sea Mud used in our soap and shampoo is not a powder product, it is a mixture of Dead Sea Mud and nourishing mineral water from the Dead Sea.
In hair care, Dead Sea mud creates fuller, shinier, softer, and healthier hair. It re-mineralizes the hair and scalp and helps rid the scalp of impurities. The proteins and minerals in Dead Sea mud rejuvenate the hair and replenish lost nutrients. Mud masks made with Dead Sea Mud are said to be very helpful for strengthening hair roots when applied to the scalp.
