About the Dead Sea in general
The dead sea is the lowest place on Earth located more than 400m below sea level. Despite its name, the Dead Sea is actually a lake. The high concentration of salt in the water makes it one of the world’s saltiest lakes. Regular sea water contains about 3 % salt while the Dead Sea contains around 32 % salt. It has a very high concentration of 21 minerals in which 12 of these are not found in other seas or oceans.
Studies show that minerals in the Dead Sea water are useful in the treatment of psoriasis, eczema, acne and rheumatism. Minerals from the Dead Sea are effective for skin disorders such as psoriasis as they strengthen and support skin tissues, balance the natural skin elements, remove skin toxins and spark blood circulation. This can result in extending the duration of skin remission and is recommended for people with e.g. psoriasis and very dry skin as an alternative treatment.
