Dead Sea Salts

Maris sal

The waters of the Dead Sea have been renowned for their therapeutic effects since ancient times.  Two thousand years ago, Flavius wrote that the salts from the Dead Sea heal the human body

The unique waters of the Dead Sea contain 27% of various salts compared to only 3% in normal sea water.  Further, unlike in normal sea water, sodium is not the dominant component in the Dead Sea, rather the Dead Sea contains a more varied mix of magnesium, potassium, calcium chloride, and bromides

Magnesium is reported to be important in combating fluid retention and slowing skin aging.  Potassium is reputed to energise the body and help balance skin moisture.  Calcium is purported to be effective in preventing water retention and increasing circulation.  And bromides are said to ease muscle stiffness and relax muscles

Additionally, Dead Sea Salt acts as an humectant, drawing moisture from the air around it

Dead Sea Salt is a popular ingredient in spa treatments
