In the 1950’s, physician studies concluded that authentic salts extracted from the Dead Sea have a proven therapeutic effect on skin ailments such as psoriasis and eczema. Regular bathing in these salts was shown to provide great relief from such psoriasis symptoms as itching, burning, flakiness and muscle and joint aches. Beyond these therapeutic effects for the skin, the University of Jerusalem has provided evidence that Dead Sea Mineral Salts also stimulate circulation and encourage the skin to renew itself. In addition, subcutaneous penetration helps relieve aches and pains in joints and muscles, providing much relief for those whom experience rheumatism and arthritis. A sense of deep relaxation is derived from frequent baths in Dead Sea Mineral Salts.
