Our Dead Sea salt is sourced from Israel. It is higher in bromides, magnesium, potassium and chloride. It is thought that dead sea salt’s therapeutic properties come from the these higher mineral concentrations. Potassium helps regulate the moisture level of the skin, Magnesium encourages skin to heal more quickly, and Bromide has a smoothing and relaxing effect. Dead Sea Salt is normally used to help detoxify the skin, though there are individuals that use it for relief from psoriasis as well.
