The Famous Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is one of the most fascinating and breathtaking places in the world!  Located 15 miles from Jerusalem, the Dead Sea sits at the lowest point of elevation on Earth and was formed over 2 million years ago.  The consistent warm and dry climate of this blessed land makes for extraordinary low pollution.

Interesting fact:  The Dead Sea contains ten times the salt content then that of an Ocean!

The Dead Sea is internationally renowned as the center for health and well being due to the dense concentration of minerals derived from the sea itself, the mud drawn from the sea floor and from rare vegetation extracted by scientists; Dunaliella Algae.

Dunaliella algae are saturated with an equivalence concentration of carotenoids, beta-carotene, antioxidants, proteins, lipids, and a plethora of rich vitamins and minerals resulting in a myriad of health benefits.

Proteins account for about 60% of dry cell weight and also contains almost EVERY amino acid existing in nature.  These, combined, create and invisible barrier over the surface of our skin protecting it from the effects of our environment while providing all the essential moisture and nourishment to maintain healthy cell development.

The lipids and amino acids can account for up to about 20% of the dry cell weight.  The amino acids are what keeps our complexion hydrated and luminous and aides in combating dry, flaky skin.

A small portion of the Dunaliella’s dry weight is Glycerol.  Glycerol has the ability to absorb a high level of humidity which allows it to sustain itself in varying degrees of harsh climate.

Used in cosmetics and body treatments for 1000′s of years, the effects of Dead Sea Minerals remain consistent, effective, and in high demand.  Not only did Cleopatra have mud bathes and body treatments, the Dead Sea was an integral part of ancient Egypt’s’ mummification process!
