Dead Sea Black Mud: The Ancient Beauty Aid

Written by Emma Tommasini


 

For many years, people from all over the world have been drawn to the famous inland sea in Israel located at the lowest point on the planet. The Dead Sea mud has the highest salt content of anywhere on Earth, which gives it a high density and remarkable properties found nowhere else.

The abundance of essential minerals such as natural calcium, iron, and magnesium found in dead sea mud is widely accepted to possess a number of restorative effects on the human body — particularly for the skin.

 

The worlds first spa 

Queen Sheba and Cleopatra are said to have used the mud’s natural healing properties to get that youthful glow. From Royals to Tourists, thousands travel every year to get their own spa treatment in the magical waters and cover themselves in the healing mud.

Among fans are the likes of Susan Sarandon and Julianne Moore who, let's be honest, defy the odds of ageing. The minerals found in the Dead Sea detoxify and purify the body, leaving skin feeling cleansed and renewed.
