The Dead Sea is historically and commonly known for its unique properties attributed to its mineral composition, particularly its salinity. The water has many times the salinity of water in other seas and is significantly denser.

This density gives this water incredible buoyancy, as witnessed by the many enthusiastic crowds flocking to its shores. You can find information regarding dead sea salts via

More important, however, are the health and cosmetic properties contained in the rich mineral concentration in Dead Sea salt and mud. This salt has been widely used in the manufacture of cosmetics, cosmetic procedures, and skincare products for many years.

More than a quarter of a mile below sea level, it is the lowest point on earth, so the minerals deposited by the Jordan River on its shores and in the sea itself come from the deepest natural springs known to man. It is controversial whether this contributes to the healthy mineral composition it contains.

There are at least twenty essential natural minerals identified that are effective in relieving tension and pain. The most common are magnesium, potassium, sodium, calcium, sulfur, and bromine. 

The natural minerals found in Dead Sea Salt are the active ingredients used to make Dead Sea Salt Soap, whose use has historically been considered one of the most effective ways to treat skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne.
