Organic Body Products  uses 100% pure dead sea salt, harvested from the Southern Dead Sea in Israel
where the mineral content is the highest.  It also contains the highest mineral content.  Dead Sea Salts contain 21 minerals including magnesium, calcium, sulfur, bromide, iodine, sodium, zinc and potassium. These essential minerals naturally occur in our bodies but must be replenished, as they are lost throughout the day. These minerals are known to treat, detoxify, and cleanse our bodies.


Acne is probably the most common skin disorder of all - 80-90% of all adolescents suffer from it. Acne, contrary to popular believe, is not caused by diet. Chocolate and greasy food aren't to blame. Acne is caused by many factors and many involve internal processes such as stress and hormone fluctuations. Dead Sea salt is high in sulfur, and sulfur is a powerful cleanser that has been proven to treat acne effectively.


Dry skin is also all too common. Our skin becomes parched as a result of climate and lack of moisture, especially in the cold, dry months of winter. Dead  Sea water is a wonderful treatment for dry skin, as it nourishes the skin and replenishes much-needed moisture.


Research has proven that soaking regularly in water enriched with Dead Sea salt can provide relief from these unpleasant skin disorders without any side effects (see spa therapy treatments). In fact, Dead sea salt has been recommended by the international psoriasis community and the National Psoriasis Foundation as an effective alternative treatment for the disorder.

Arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, back pain, bursitis etc. have all been effectively treated with Dead Sea salts. The Dead Sea minerals are absorbed while you soak in a bath and are known to provide effective relief from joint swelling, soreness and stiffness. This is due to the minerals improving blood circulation, which is necessary in reducing inflammatory response. This is combined with powerful detoxifying agents and general muscle relaxant properties. When water containing the salt has been heated, the
ability of the elements to penetrate and be absorbed into the system is increased.


There is nothing more relaxing than soaking in a tub of hot water. Your blood pressure will drop, your muscles will relax. Not to mention, you'll have a moment alone! Time out for yourself and from the demands of the day is extremely important. Bathing in sea salts also works by increasing circulation and detoxifying your body by removing byproducts, which are formed during the stress.


One of the best ways to combat water retention is to drink more water. Another way to slim down quickly is to bathe in Dead Sea salts. Dead Sea salt water contains potassium, which is an important mineral in the treatment of water retention.
