Ingredient Spotlight: Dead Sea Salts

Dead Sea Salts are beneficial to the skin in so many ways.  I have talked about them before, but I am finding that I enjoy products formulated with them more and more.

First of all, let's talk a bit about what Dead Sea Salts are.  Dead Sea Salts are salts from the Dead Sea.  They are not your typical salt.  The salt in the Dead Sea is actually less than 3% sodium chloride.  Salt found in the saltwater in the oceans is composed of 97% sodium chloride.  The salts in the Dead Sea are beneficial because they contain high amounts of magnesium, potassium, calcium, bromide, and more.  This high mineral content is of great benefit to the skin. These minerals from the Dead Sea attract water, so your skin will be able to stay hydrated and nourished.

In fact, tourists from all over the world visit the Dead Sea to reap the many benefits of the minerals in the salts.

When it comes to skin care and hair care, Dead Sea Salts can:

*Help to relieve body acne
*Help to relieve psoriasis (In fact, the National Psoriasis Foundation recommends this)
*Reduce inflammation
*Increase skin hydration
*Help stimulate hair regrowth
*Help to alleviate dandruff
*Restore shine and healthy look to the hair

It is important for you to read the ingredients listings, though, when you are purchasing Dead Sea Salt products.  The labels will specifically say "dead sea salt (or salts)" on the label. I have seen several "natural" products claiming to be Dead Sea Salt products only to have the label say "sodium chloride". So buyer beware.
