Millions of years of hot, dry desert air combined with a high rate of evaporation have been partly responsible for the Dead Sea’s profuse cumulation of salt and minerals that are essential for skin health. The mud at the bottom of the sea absorbs these natural resources, and this mud is then harvested. After being filtered and purified, it is packaged.
According to legends, the first historical figure to acknowledge the healing powers of the Dead Sea was the Queen of Sheba. Eventually, Cleopatra came to learn of its alleged mystical efficacy and travelled there from Egypt in order to build the world’s first spa.
The main chemical constituents of Dead Sea Mineral Mud are: Dead Sea Water, Organic Matter, and Minerals (expressed in Oxides: Silicon Dioxide, Calcium Oxide, Magnesium Oxide, Sodium Oxide, Potassium Oxide, Iron (III) Oxide, Aluminum Oxide, Phosphorous Pentoxide, Titanium (IV) Oxide, Sulfur Trioxide, Manganese(II) Oxide, Zirconium Dioxide, Chromium(III) Oxide, Zinc Oxide, Nickel(II) Oxide, Copper Oxide, Indium (III) Oxide, Chloride, and Bromide).
Used cosmetically or topically in general, Dead Sea Mineral Mud is beneficial for dry, oily, and normal skin types. It removes dead cells from the skin's surface, purges the pores of impurities, and balances the skin's oil production and pH level. Additionally, it accelerates the skin's detoxification process on the surface and in the tissues by gently drawing out visible and invisible impurities such as air pollution, allergens, dust, and dirt. As the mud dries, it exhibits gentle pulling action that draws out excess oil, tightens, and exfoliates to remove dead skin, which reveals a healthier layer of skin.
With hydrating and firming properties, Dead Sea Mud soothes itchiness and inflammation as well as symptoms of skin ailments such as dryness, acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Furthermore, it enhances skin elasticity, reduces the appearance of pores, and smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Gently cleanse face with water to remove makeup, oil, and perspiration. Washing the face before application will also open the pores to allow the mud to deeply penetrate the skin. Next, apply a thin layer of the Dead Sea Mud Mask evenly to face with the fingertips, using gentle upward strokes. Important! Avoid eye area and to ensure its protection, a few drops of a carrier oil can be gently applied around the eyes to prevent the mud from crossing this hydrating and nourishing barrier. Applying a mask too thickly will prevent it from drying. To soften the skin and effectively purge impurities, the mask can be left on until it has just barely dried. To remove the mask, simply place a soaked and wrung lukewarm towel on face and allow it to soften the mask until it can be rinsed away without scrubbing. This mask should not be kept on the skin if it is uncomfortable, and its use should not be continued if it causes blemishes. This mask can also be applied medicinally to help relieve symptoms of eczema and psoriasis.
When used in hair, Dead Sea Mineral Mud hydrates and nourishes the scalp and roots by boosting circulation. This reduces the chances of hair loss by strengthening and enhancing the health of hair follicles, which shrink and become narrower with age. Shrinkage prevents hair from receiving nourishment and oxygen, thereby negatively impacting the hair protein necessary for growth. This in turn leads to hair fall. Accordingly, Dead Sea Mud works to cleanse and moisturize the scalp to reduce or eliminate dryness and dandruff, thus preventing thinning, repairing damage, and leaving dull hair with increased luster. Dead Sea Mineral Mud is also reputed to effectively remove airborne environmental toxins that are absorbed by the hair.
To use in hair, apply Dead Sea Mud Mask directly to wet strands and the scalp. Simply part the hair with a comb, then apply the mask to exposed areas of the scalp and smooth it over the hair. Keep this mask on for 10-20 minutes, thoroughly rinsing it out with a gentle shampoo without rigorously washing it out or massaging it in. Rinsing may need to be repeated to remove all mud residue from the hair and scalp. Pat the hair dry with a towel, then apply a conditioner or Mending Oil.
I have used the superfoods clay mask several times in the last month, and I absolutely love it! It detoxes my skin beautifully and leaves my face smooth for several days after. It’s easy to whip up and wear, and after it’s rinsed I use my faCe revive lotion. Ive used the day and night faCe revive creams along with the eye cream for about a year now and my face soaks up the moisture and is not left feeling oily or greasy at all! These products are the best natural skin care products that I have used, by far. It was a relief to find all natural products that met all of my skin care needs.
