Dead Sea Salt refers to salt and other mineral deposits extracted from the Dead Sea . This salty composition differs significantly from oceanic salt. The Dead Sea Valley, in Southern Israel, is also the lowest land mass on earth—1385 feet below sea level. A visit to the Dead Sea is a unique experience for the body and soul. A vacation from the rat race with the bonus of taking a dip in the waters saturated in minerals and vitamins that do good to the skin.
Dead Sea Salt was harvested as far back as 3000 years ago by the people of Ancient Egypt and since then has been utilized in various unguents, skin creams, body scrubs and soaps.
The Dead Sea’s mineral composition varies with season, rainfall, depth of deposit, and includes the essential minerals Magnesium, Bromide, Iodine, Potassium, Sulfur, Calcium, Sodium, and Zinc.
