In an article by Beauty Press, the seas and oceans keep secrets – marine ingredients such as algae, caviar, seaweed, wakame plant in many cosmetic products. Take a look at one of the most powerful ingredients used to battle skin conditions like psoriasis, neurodermatitis, acne-prone and flaky skin – sea salt and especially salt from the Dead Sea.
Nestled 400 meters below sea level, at the lowest point on earth, is one of the largest inland waters, the Dead Sea. Numerous underground sources supply it with valuable minerals and trace elements and make the Dead Sea a natural pool of healing minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium and bromine. Diverse minerals (salts) found in the Dead Sea is quite unique. It has a unique mineral complex that works wonders for problematic skin conditions such as neurodermatitis and psoriasis.
The use of Dead Sea salt as a highly effective therapeutic agent has been researched and scientifically proven for decades. Its use in cosmetics has therefore established itself as a central active ingredient.
Benefits of Sea Salt

“One study in people with dry skin found that bathing in a salt solution obtained from the Dead Sea helped increase skin hydration and decrease roughness, compared with bathing in tap water. That said, the researchers attributed the positive results to the amount of magnesium in the Dead Sea solution — not the salt content. Sea salts that have a high magnesium content may be the best types to add to baths for those with skin issues,” in an article by Health Line.
