Salt of Dead Sea
The Sea's unique composition of natural minerals is produced from dissolving of the salt created in the natural evaporation process of the lake's water. The Dead Sea contains 26 essential minerals, 12 of the Dead Sea minerals do not exist in any other sea or ocean in the world. In addition, the natural minerals are essential for correct functioning of the human body and the different skin layers.
Trace Elements - the importance of Dead Sea Minerals.
The minerals compose only 4 % of the body weight, but their importance is immeasurably greater, they are trace elements needed in small quantities for cell renewal activities in the skin and serve as essential elements in cell performance, principally in intercellular communication. The minerals are essential for purposes of "exchanging information" and help to transmit signals between the cells, an activity that activates cells to renew themselves, to divide and to nourish the top skin layer with an increased water capacity.
They also participate in processes of bone building, blood production, hormone activation, neural strengthening and far more. However, like vitamins, they are not produced by the body and therefore the body depends on an external supply of minerals from food. Minerals take on a very important role in correct skin functioning. Therefore, beyond provision of the minerals(dead sea mud) reaching it with the blood circulation, the skin absorbs minerals applied externally and uses them in every single process alreadying existing in the skin layers. A deficiency in one of the minerals is liable to disrupt skin cell activity, cause inflammation, dryness and early aging.
