The Dead Sea -- A TRULY UNIQUE RESOURCE The therapeutic powers of the Dead Sea have been acclaimed for thousands of years, and have been widely used to treat acne, psoriasis and other skin disorders, as well as being used in the skin care regiments since the time of Cleopatra. Located at the earth's lowest point of elevation, the Dead Sea has a greater solid content than any other body of water. The salts and muds found here are abundantly rich in sodium, magnesium, potassium, calcium and bromine. The mineral salts from the Dead Sea are unique for their high proportion of potassium and magnesium ions and its relatively low sodium ion content. The healing minerals of the Dead Sea stimulate blood circulation and accelerate the natural exfoliation process, restoring the skin to its natural pH balance. The mineral-rich Dead Sea nourishes and revitalizes skin cells and has deep cleansing and purifying qualities, drawing toxins from the body. This combination contributes to the allure and mystique of the Dead Sea and its renowned therapeutic properties.
