FAQ

  • Where is the Dead Sea?
  • The Dead Sea is located at the lowest point on earth, in the Jordan Rift Valley nestled between Israel and Jordan in the Mediterranean region. At 430 meters below sea level, the Dead Sea is a still lake with no outlet. Due to high levels of evaporation, the sea water and mud sediment that remains is extremely concentrated in salts and minerals. The waters of the Dead Sea are so dense (8 times saltier than regular ocean water) that you actually float on the surface of the sea!

  • Why are Dead Sea minerals so good for the skin?
  • Regular ocean water is composed of 85% sodium chloride, whereas the Dead Sea has only 12-18%. What makes up the remaining salty contents of the Dead Sea? Natural, beneficial minerals. Due to its unique geological characteristics, the Dead Sea is rich in a powerful combination of 23 minerals that have been proven over centuries for their healthy, beautifying properties. The highest mineral concentrations in Dead Sea water include chloride, bromide, magnesium, sodium, calcium and potassium. These minerals, and many others, have powerful repair and nourishing effects. They are known to stimulate blood circulation and boost the skin’s natural moisture balance, contributing to a youthful radiance and smooth sensation.
