Dead Sea as it is today has been formed over billions of years, as a result of continuous evaporation of sea water, which has happened because the sea has no connection with the ocean at present time. Dead Sea is one of the most ancient seas on Earth, based 400 metres below the sea level. The process of evaporation of the water from Dead Sea produced a phenomenon which lives up to its name today, since no life can survive in the highly saline environment of Dead Sea.
People have been benefiting from swimming in Dead Sea for thousands of years. It attracts countless numbers of health tourists wishing to improve their joint mobility, address skin problems, nervous complaints, rejuvenate, and simply relieve stress and “recharge batteries”.
Dead Sea has given us two famous products – the salt and the mud which are used extensively on their own, and also as ingredients in health and beauty products.
Dead Sea is incredibly rich in minerals and numerous other precious substances. It contains all the essential elements of the Periodic table which are encountered and used by the body, and countless other precious substances.
Because of the high concentration of the water, the salt is actually part of the environment, with salt deposits all over the area. The sea water is so saturated with the salt that floating on the surface of the sea comes effortlessly.
Extensive scientific research has demonstrated excellent results for its effectiveness in the treatment of various skin problems such as acne, psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema. Becasue of its high levels of magnesium and bromide, the salt has been used widely to treat nervous and musculo-skeletal problems, such as arthritis, as well as inflammatory conditions.
