Dead Sea Benefits
No place is more life-giving than the Dead Sea. SEACRET captures its power. The lowest point on Earth, the Dead Sea, is some 422 meters below sea level. The Dead Sea overflows with abundant life-supporting matter. This natural therapeutic storehouse is rich in minerals. In fact, its waters contain the highest concentration of minerals (32%) to be found anywhere in the world! This mineral concentration is 10 times higher than that of any other body of water.
For centuries, the Dead Sea has been a prime destination for those who wish to renew and extend life. Cleopatra was known to nurture her beauty there from time to time, and now you can do the same without making the pilgrimage.
The minerals and salts found only in the Dead Sea can be combined in formulas that are positive, some say magical, in their healing properties. Based on these, SEACRET has developed its revolutionary new formulas to deliver these health benefits through their products.
With, SEACRET your beauty can be not only be skin deep, but skin healthy as well.
In this field, as in the field of radiation, multi-year studies were carried out to monitor the air components and evaluate the different qualities of the atmosphere. Because of the low height in relation to sea level, high atmospheric pressure is created in the Dead Sea area, which makes the air rich in oxygen (6% more than over sea level). In addition the air is rich in mineral particles including in particular magnesium and bromine.
Additional factors making the air at the Dead Sea unique are the hot and fixed temperatures most days of the year, dryness in an area where there is little rainfall, few environmental pollution particles (there is little vehicular traffic and few polluting industrial areas) and sparse desert flora that does not release allergens into the air.
The Dead Sea is in fact a saltwater lake. Its length is about 50 km and its maximum width, between Ein Gedi and Arnon, is 17 km. The volume of the lake is 140 billion m³ of water, in which about 50 billion tons of salts and minerals are diluted. The concentration of salinity in the Dead Sea is 34 parts to one hundred as against 1.4 parts to one hundred in the water of the Bay of Eilat, which is part of the saltiest open sea in the world.
The level of the Dead Sea is in constant retreat. In the last sixty years the sea area was reduced from 1000 km² to 650 km² (approximately 35%). The rate of the level's retreat has stabilized in recent years at one meter yearly, but even though the level is likely to be reduced also in the next few years there is no real danger that the lake will disappear, because of the relative increase in the percentage of thesalt and reduction of the surface area of the water - phenomena that suppress evaporation.
The Dead Sea's unique composition of natural minerals derives from dissolving of the salt created in the natural evaporation process of the lake's water. The compound is refined through the solar radiation which neutralizes the sodium chloride (that sinks to the bottom) and leaves the compound rich with a high concentration of cation minerals such as magnesium, sodium and calcium and anion minerals such as phosphorus and boron. The high concentration causes high density of the water and consequently it is possible to float on it.
A large part of the Dead Sea salts and minerals penetrate the skin and this makes the Dead Sea the only area in the world in which the natural healing method of climatotherapy is applied for treatment of various diseases.
In addition hot mineral springs flow around the Dead Sea shores, natural hot springs that are rich in sulfur and minerals. The mineral composition and the high temperature of the springs make them unique as factors in relief of different types of skin and joint diseases.
Produced from the banks of the Dead Sea, the mud has become famous around the world because of its healing capacities in stress relief, releasing painful muscles and healing rheumatic pains. The organic mud, black in color (which in its natural form is characterized by a sharp smell) is made up of layers of the mountain soil and silt from the waters of the Jordan River and the springs, and it has sunk deep into the lake. On its way the soil absorbs a very rich concentration of minerals and enriches the lake's waters.
Scientific studies carried out on the mineral mud have proved, beyond any doubt, its benefits in maintaining a healthy skin. The mud has a strong cleansing capacity which absorbs pollutants, fat and secretions from the skin (it has been proved clinically that Streptococci do not survive in mud). In addition, it has capacities for rehabilitation, renewal and strengthening of the skin layer and is thus ideal for healing rheumatic pains, relieving symptoms of chronic inflammation and increased dryness of skin, seborrhea, psoriasis and eczema.
The Healing Power Of The Dead Sea
Modern medical researches confirm that positive combination of the minerals and salts from the Dead Sea has healing properties for different ailments.
For instance, many skin conditions may be helped by using Dead Sea minerals, which can also lead to improvement in outer appearance and elasticity of the skin, better blood circulation, metabolism and a more relaxed nervous system.
Mud from the Dead Sea contains minerals that heal wounds, wake up hair roots and eradicate dermatitis and dandruff.
