The Dead Sea is the most saline body of water in the world with far greater concentrations of minerals than any ocean (a concentration of 32% minerals compared to other seas, holding approximately 3%). Bromides and Iodine are known to be present in Dead Sea Salt, along with other minerals in a dried form, such as Magnesium, Sodium, Calcium and Potassium. All these minerals are believed to work together to assist in relaxing the body and soothes to provide a sense of well being .
The rough nature of the salt lends itself to skin scrubs (exfoliation) and can also be used with Epsom salts (magnesium sulphate). We recommend you try Dead Sea Salt as a body scrub, or just as a relaxing additive to your bath.
