The history of these unique products is what makes Dead Sea skin care famous
Why in the world would anyone want to use products from the Dead Sea on their skin and hair? Let’s examine the logic behind doing this. Why are Dead Sea skin products famous and highly coveted?
There are lots of reasons. The Dead Sea is, in fact, a lake. It is the lowest point on earth in any land mass. The water evaporating from the body of water far exceeds the flow of water into the lake which produces the biggest concentration of salt in the world.
The lake borders Israel and Jordan. It is the deepest hyper-saline lake in the world and is 8.6 times saltier than the ocean. It is easy to float in this body of water because of its density. The high saline content creates buoyancy. The mineral content in this water is not the same as that found in the ocean.
So what’s the point? Who cares? You should if you are into skin and hair care products.
The Beauty of Salt
Salt is therapeutic and beneficial in many ways. The high saline content doesn’t bode well for life forms so they are non-existent in the lake, thus the name the Dead Sea; however, the saline in the water possesses healing properties for human, as those who visit the site can attest as can those who use the products derived from the lake.
This body of water is often called the ‘lowest health spa in the world,’ because of the coveted sea salts produced as well as the minerals in the water and the black mud. If you actually visit the lake, you gain additional benefits because of the bromide in the air, which is good for the body. Bromide is a salt of hydrobromic acid. Bromide is considered by some as beneficial nutritionally.
Individuals visit the lake not only because of the water and its benefits but because of the atmosphere, which is quite unique. There are lower ultraviolet rays in this region, very few allergens and high atmospheric pressure, which is good for humans, especially those suffering from cystic fibrosis and other diseases, particularly those of a respiratory nature.
