Dead Sea Salt: 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 water of the Dead Sea contains 21 minerals, many of which are found in no other sea or ocean. Cleopatra went to great expense to obtain exclusive rights over the Dead Sea area.
Dead Sea Salt is so rich in minerals that it has been renowned for its therapeutic effects since ancient times. The skin can absorb some of the minerals lost due to sun, age, and pollution which results in healthier more youthful-looking skin. Research has demonstrated that regular soaking in Dead Sea salt baths provides relief from skin ailments such as psoriasis and acne. This salt is sought out by many for its skin-soothing properties.
Buyer Beware: Beware of cheap versions of Dead Sea salt. Often times it is refined which means the salt is washed to strip it of its trace minerals. Also, some commercial producers of sea salt include harmful additives in their salt products.
