So you may or may not have heard of the magical properties of Dead Sea Cosmetics. For that matter you may or may not have heard of Dead Sea Cosmetics, or even the Dead Sea. So let’s start at the beginning…
The Dead Sea Facts
The Dead Sea, also known as the Salt Sea, is a salt lake between Israel and Jordan and with surfaces and shores 423 meters below sea level it is the earth’s lowest elevation on land; meaning the lowest place in the world that you can visit! It is also 377 meters deep, making it the deepest hypersaline lake in the entire world (hypersaline just means a body of water containing a high concentration of mineral salts that makes it saltier than regular ocean water). And this, dear readers, is where it gets its curious name from. The extreme saltiness of the waters makes it impossible for animals to survive in hence the Dead Sea!
What draws the over a million annual visitors to the Dead Sea?
The Dead Sea has been attracting visitors for millennia. In fact, it was one of the world’s first health resorts and has been taken advantage of for its products from Egyptian mummification balms to fertilizer potash. Nowadays what draws the visitors is the cosmetic and healing properties of the salts, minerals and mud of the Dead Sea. Other than that, the Dead Sea is a fun place to visit due to the density of the seawater which allows for floating in the waters with no effort on the part of the bather!
The climate and low elevation of the Dead Sea region make it a popular center for several types of therapies including climatotherapy which makes use of local climatic features such as the high temperatures, low humidity, large amount of sunshine and other special atmospheric constituents, heliotherapy which exploits the biological effects of the sun’s radiation and thalassotherapy that exploits bathing in the waters of the Dead Sea. The region is also known for the reduced ultraviolet component of solar radiation which makes sunbathing much safer in the hot sun!
Sounds great, but how about those who can’t afford a flight to the magnificent Dead Sea?!
This is where the Dead Sea Cosmetics come in. Years ago, Israelis suddenly realized that the amazing properties of the Dead Sea minerals and muds should be shared with the rest of the world and with those who can’t make it to Israel. So they packaged it up and out came the Dead Sea Cosmetics. You can order Dead Sea Cosmetics online and enjoy the benefits of this special region…in your own bathtub!
