The Healing & Therapeutic Powers of the Dead Sea I

Serenely nestled between the countries of Israel & Jordan lies one of the world’s most healing and therapeutic seas – The Dead Sea. This remarkable beauty marks the lowest point on earth – 1320ft below sea level. Her mineral rich, briny water is so “thick” with mineral salts that the water actually feels like oil. Due to the mineral density, humans enjoy relaxing and floating effortlessly on her shore line or out in the deep water.
The Dead Sea is extremely deep, averaging about 378m (1240ft), thus making her the deepest hypersaline lake (a landlocked body of water) in the world. Known as the saltiest sea in the world, the Dead Sea contains a myriad of raw materials such as Standard & High Magnesium Brine, Mineral Mud, Clay & Salts which can be transformed into a plethora of natural beauty applications that can deliver amazing benefits for your clientele.
The amazing benefits of the Dead Sea have been utilized since ancient times by world renowned Cleopatra (The original Spa Diva!) who imported the Dead Sea Mud & Salts for bathing & body wraps. The Egyptians utilized the mineral Bitumen for embalming and the Roman Government imported it for their most elite and called the Dead Sea Mud, “Black Gold”!
All of the raw materials extracted from the Dead Sea contain over 21 beneficial, corrective & restorative minerals that have tremendous anti-aging and healing effects on the skin and have been scientifically proven to aid in the healing process of various maladies of the skin (psoriasis, eczema, seborrhea, ichthyosis, contact dermatitis, dandruff and more) as well as arthritic & muscle conditions with essentially no contraindications.
