Dead Sea Ingredients
Dead Sea ingredients are naturally rich in minerals found in the Dead Sea bed. The high mineral content allows cation exchange to detoxify the skin. They help revitalize, exfoliate and purify the skin. They draw excess oils and debris from the skin leaving a clean fresh feeling. Dead Sea salt is wonderful for use in a variety of applications such as bath salts, salt scrubs, foot scrubs, bath bombs, bath teas, body wraps and body polishers.
Dead Sea clay and mud help tighten pores and stimulate circulation so your skin is left with a smooth, healthy glow. The mud can also be used as a pack for sore joints. Use the mud as a hair pack to alleviate dandruff and oily hair conditions. It will not overdry the scalp.
To Use the Mud or Clay:
A Dead Sea mud mask can be made very simply by mixing Dead Sea clay and enough water, hydrosol or other wetting agent to make a thick paste. The best water to use is Dead Sea brine. You can also use the mud which is already wet. Try adding 3 drops of essential oil to the mud to help cleanse the pores and kill the bacteria that causes blemishes. Other wetting agents for the clay include fruit puree, yogurt, cucumber juice and milk. Honey can be added to make the mask anti-bacterial. If your skin tends to be dry in places, trying adding some jojoba to the mud mask to help balance the skin. Other good additives include our powdered sea vegetables, powdered rice bran, colloidal oatmeal, nut meals and powdered herbs.
Dead Sea masks cannot be premixed and stored, so only mix what you will use immediately. Alternatively, you can provide customers with a specially blended wetting agent in a separate container so they can prepare the mask when desired.
A great Dead Sea hair wrap can be made with 1/2 cup mud or clay (wet with Dead Sea brine), 1 tablespoon shikakai powder, 1 teaspoon aritha powder, 1 teaspoon neem powder, 1 tablespoon jojoba oil and 5 drops of rosemary essential oil. All of these ingredients are available throughout our online catalog. Mix all of the ingredients and massage through wet hair. Wrap your head with plastic and then a hot towel. Leave it in for at least 15 minutes, and then wash out.
