The Dead Sea area is famous for an unique blend of plants typical to the shores and the adjacent Judean Desert. All these special ingredients will keep your skin supple and young.
The Dead Sea magical ingredients include a variety of salts, mud, diatom algae, essences and oils extracted from plants that grow exclusively on the shores of the Dead Sea and in the Judean Desert. These elements can only be found there and for you to understand how unique and exceptional they are, we present you with a special guide to their secrets:
There are almost no creatures capable of living in the Dead Sea waters, which contain 350 grams of salt for every liter of water. The Dunaliella - single-celled micro-algae belonging to the group of green algae, is one of the few creatures able to live and survive in the Dead Sea water, and in general in waters containing more than 20 percent salt.
These algae possess massive amounts of beta-carotene (a precursor to vitamin A), which they are able to produce and maintain. Beta carotene protects the skin from harmful sun rays and in the skin transforms into vitamin A, which is a crucial component for rejuvenating the skin.
The algae contain a large amount of amino acids (including glycine and alanine), essential fatty acids and vitamins E and B. These elements are vital for skin anti-aging.
The algae contain a high dose of natural polyol substances with adsorption capacity and extremely high water retention, which maintain the internal osmotic pressure and allow them to survive the salty water without shrinkage nor loss of water. Polyols supply concentrated moisturization for facial and body skin and contribute to a young, elastic and vital look.
Artemisia vulgaris bush
In fact there are two types of Artemisia (Artemisia + MUGWORT), one is produced from the leaf and the other is produced from other parts of the plant. Artemisia is a bush that grows in desert areas and is named after the Greek goddess Artemis. In ancient times the bush was used to treat diseases typical of women and for easing birth. The bush is known for refreshing the body and mind and soothing the skin.
The bush components are rich in flavonoids possessing antioxidant properties, protecting against damage caused by air pollution and UV, and slowing down the formation of skin wrinkles. The bush increases blood flow and metabolism of the skin, and helps the dissolution of toxins in the body - all the features necessary from a bush that can delay the aging of the skin.
Salicornia europae plant
A plant with a unique ability to withstand high salt concentrations that grows on the shores of the Dead Sea. The plant contains a very high concentration of vitamin C, antioxidant enzymes and trace elements such as zinc, copper, magnesium and iodine, required for skin rejuvenation and proper functioning. The plant is rich in organic phosphorus, calcium and natural silicon - materials necessary to increase cell respiration and firming of the skin.
The Rose of Jericho
A primitive desert plant that was first discovered in the Judean Desert near the Dead Sea. The plant can survive without water for a very long period of time, in saltwater and at very high temperatures. At first rain the plant opens, greens and blooms. The plant contains poly-oligo saccharides, which are materials that add moisture to the skin, and special proteins active against environmental stress. Stress is one of the key factors in accelerated aging of the skin.
