Dead Sea Salt Soak Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the dead sea?

The Dead Sea, despite it’s name, is actually a salt lake in the Jordan River Basin between Israel and Jordan. Its surface is over 1,300 feet below sea level (the lowest place on the surface of this planet) with a depth that extends as far as 2,300 feet below sea level. The Dead Sea’s water is some of the most saline on earth with 35% dissolved salts. The water gets saltier with increasing depth until it is so saturated at the bottom that salt crystals precipitate and settle. Many white crystals of mineral salts find their way to the shore. As can be inferred by its name, the Dead Sea supports no visible life, fish or otherwise. However, several bacteria and one type of algae have adapted to harsh life in the water.

  • Why does the Dead Sea have such unique health benefits, more than other seas or oceans?

Compared to the 3% salt content of ordinary sea water, the Dead Sea water contains 32% salts with relatively high concentration of minerals such as magnesium, calcium, bromide and potassium. Exposure to Dead Sea water is uniquely acclaimed for nourishing the skin, easing rheumatic discomfort, activating the circulatory system, and relaxing the nerves. This is endorsed by European Health Funds who send their members to be treated by the Dead Sea for chronic skin and rheumatic conditions. Floating effortlessly permits free, relaxed and easier movement in the water thus enhancing the effects of physiotherapy.  We are not medical professionals, and we recommend that you consult with your doctor before using any product for treating any conditions.

  • Is it safe to take sea salt baths every day?

Yes, taking sea salt baths everyday is actually beneficial to you. 10-20 minutes is enough each day to maintain soft & beautiful vibrant skin.

  • How long before the dead sea salts expire?

Salt does not expire. However Bath salt with colors and fragrances may fade over time. Shelf life for colored/scented bath salts is typically 1-2 years. Shelf life for raw natural salt is millions of years.

  • Can I use bath salts during pregnancy?

We recommend consulting your doctor first before using bath salts or taking a bath while pregnant.
