The Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is a true wonder of the natural world. As well as being one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world, the Dead Sea is located at Earth’s lowest point, 410 meters below sea level. The Dead Sea is so-called because its hypersaline waters are inhospitable to marine life.

In this rare environment we find mineral-rich salt and mud, hypersaline water, reduced solar radiation and a higher concentration of oxygen. For millennia the Dead Sea has attracted people looking for relaxation and optimum well-being. Cleopatra prized the formidable restorative powers of this extraordinary natural spa, while travelers have visited its shores to benefit from the rare 21 minerals that can be found in the water and mud. 

And today the Dead Sea is as popular as ever, drawing visitors from around the world in search of natural healing and rejuvenation.

The Miraculous Dead Sea

Since the dawn of civilization the Dead Sea has attracted people seeking relaxation and healing. The three key elements: mud, water and salts combine to confer a wide range of health benefits, many of which have been assessed and confirmed by independent research.

The salts, which include potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium and bromides, are used to treat psoriasis, dermatitis, dandruff, eczema, acne and seborrhea. The salts moisturize, soften and detoxify while promoting cell regeneration – ideal for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The mud is formed over thousands of years by the subtle interplay of the sun, the soil and the springs and rivers that feed into the sea. The nutrient-rich clay absorbs pollutants, fat and secretions from the skin due to an osmotic effect that draws impurities away from your skin.

The water is home to few organisms because of its high salt content. One of the few organisms that can survive in the hypersaline water of the Dead Sea is Dunaliella salina, a type of micro-algae which is a rich source of beta-carotene and a powerful anti-ageing element. 

When the salts, the mud and the water of the Dead Sea combine you get a remarkable source of beauty-enhancing, age-delaying and skin-nourishing materials. We use these elements to activate the natural repair process, accelerate cell regeneration, regulate moisture levels, prepare the skin for nourishment. This is the essence of our Co:dermal formulation methodology.

The Minerals

The salt, mud and water of the Dead Sea contains 23 minerals, 12 of which do not exist in any other sea in the world. These minerals include magnesium, potassium, chloride, bromide, calcium, sodium, and iodine. Together these minerals accelerate cell metabolism, regulate water balance, relieve and heal skin disorders and stimulate the natural repair process.

Our Ecocert Dead Sea mud offers your skin a unique blend of minerals and compounds. This material, which is world-renowned for its healing and restorative properties, forms the basis of all of our products.

Lithium

protects cells and maintains healthy nerves, which in turn supports your circulatory system and is used to treat skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

Sodium

heavily concentrated in the Dead Sea, sodium helps to balance your skin's moisture levels while improving elasticity and suppleness.

Potassium

in addition to stimulating the nerve system, potassium balances the oil levels in your skin, which helps to maintain moisture levels while protecting against conditions such as acne.

Magnesium

speeds cell metabolism and boosts protein synthesis which reduces skin redness and irritation. Magnesium also soothes the nervous system, helps your skin retain moisture and slows the ageing process by promoting natural skin rejuvenation.

Calcium

strengthens cell membranes and promotes skin renewal. Calcium also cleanses pores and provides a natural defense against cold, dry or polluted environments. Calcium also reduces free radicals, boosts blood circulation and helps your skin to remain moisturized.

Strontium

protects cell membranes and maintains tissue elasticity, which in turn help to relieve conditions including psoriasis and eczema.

Manganese

supports the production of collagen which can delay the ageing process. Manganese aids the production of connective tissue and its anti-oxidant properties also nourish your skin.

Copper

activates cell membranes, stimulates elastin and collagen in your skin and has anti-pigmentation properties which fight the ageing process and combat free radicals.

Zinc

promotes collagen production and natural skin rejuvenation while repairing damaged cells. Zinc can be helpful in the treatment and prevention of hair loss and acne.

Sulfate

promotes collagen production to help your skin stay soft, smooth and youthful. Sulfur also promotes healthy skin by eliminating bacteria and fungus, while encouraging skin renewal.

Bromine

helps to relax stressed muscles and stimulates natural skin rejuvenation. The anti-inflammatory properties of bromine soothe your skin, making this a popular treatment for rheumatic conditions.

Iodine

Cleanses and hydrates the skin. Also nourishes skin and hair.
