We have received a several questions from our readers about the benefits of using a dead sea salt scrub, and we thought it would be worth an entire post!

Today we will cover :

1.What is the dead sea and whats special about it ?

2.The Benefits of Using Dead Sea Products

3.Why you should start using a dead sea salt scrub, and which one should you use?

In a hurry? here are our top choices of dead sea products, grab them from the table below.

1. What is the dead sea, and whats so special about it? 

The dead sea in Israel is the lowest spot on earth, it was announced as one of the worlds wonders and is considered the mecca for people with skin conditions.

It is known that the sea contains very high concentration of salt and minerals [magnesium, potassium and calcium of course sodium & more].

Thus dead sea products are extremely popular and in very high demand.

The “dead” sea is named that way, due to the fact that nothing can live in it. No fish or any type of algae can survive in such salty water.

The combination of salt and minerals has many benefits for your skin, and it can even help in healing several skin conditions, like psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis.

Our staff have actually visited the dead sea and can confirm that you do float when you swim in its water, but be careful – if you get even a tiny bit of the dead sea water in your eyes, it’ll take you hours to recover! (ouch)


Now that we briefly explained the dead sea, lets talk about why you should use dead sea products. More particularly, we love the dead sea salt scrubs and the effect they leave on the human skin.


2.The [AMAZING] Benefits of Using Dead Sea Products
