Taking a Closer Look at Dead Sea Salts

Nestled directly between the Middle-Eastern countries of Jordan and Israel, the Dead Sea is an awe-inspiring location that's attracted people from all over the world for thousands of years. Going back to biblical times, it's even believed to have housed the world's first health resort. To this day, over a million people travel to the Dead Sea each year. But why is it such a popular and highly-sought after travel destination? The secret lies in its unique sea salts that are used in beauty treatment products and techniques.

While all of Earth's oceans contain salt, the Dead Sea has an incredibly high salt content that's over eight times more than regular oceans. In addition to leaving an unusually salty taste in your mouth, this water also makes swimmers more buyout. You can literally lay on your back in the Dead Sea and let the current the current take you away without fear of drowning. Because of the high salt content, there's practically nothing that's able to grow or live inside the Dead Sea, so you don't have to worry about a shark, giant octopus or some nightmarish sea creature scooping you up.

Salts taken from the Dead Sea also have a different mineral composition than traditional sea salts. Several studies done on the Dead Sea salts have shown it to only have roughly 2-10% sodium chloride content, while regular sea salts are around made up almost entirely of sodium chloride. What does this mean exactly? Well, sodium chloride is a rather harsh ionic compound that can dry out the skin in excess amounts. However, since Dead Sea salts have an unusually low concentration, it may prove useful for treating certain skin conditions.

Dead Sea salts are used to treat a number of conditions, such as arthritis, acne, psoriasis, skin wrinkling/aging and even certain types of allergies. Once an individual is exposed to Dead Sea salts, the nutrients are absorbed through the skin where they go directly into the bloodstream. There are approximately half a dozen beneficial nutrients found in Dead Sea salt.

You can reap the benefits of Dead Sea salt in one of two ways by taking a trip out to the Middle East and taking a dip in the Dead Sea, or you can purchase and use the salts in the comfort of your own home. People have been extracting the salts from the Dead Sea for thousands of years to use as medical treatment products, and it's doubtful this activity will cease anytime soon.

If you plan on using Dead Sea salts, be sure to read the directions on how to properly apply it. Most packaged Dead Sea salts are mixed directly into creams or lotions for an easier and more convenient application. Of course there are also some that are 100% Dead Sea salts that are poured directly into a bathtub. After laying in a tub filled with these salts, you'll likely notice an improvement in your skin and how you feel. Continue the application process at least once every other day for optimal results.
