You may have heard that products made with Dead Sea minerals are good for your skin. But why are Dead Sea minerals good for your skin?

The answer is that products made from the Dead Sea often contain some combination of minerals such as silicon dioxide, calcium oxide, aluminum oxide, magnesium oxide, iron oxide, sodium oxide, potassium oxide, Titanium oxide, sulfur trioxide, phosphorus pent oxide, chloride and bromide.  These are some of the key minerals found in Dead Sea mud that may be useful in treating a number of common and uncommon skin conditions.

Specifically, acne and psoriasis are two conditions where treatment with Dead Sea salt or mud has been useful in treating symptoms. In fact, Dead Sea salt soaking is actually recommended as an effective treatment for psoriasis by the National Psoriasis Foundation. For this skin condition, it is actually the magnesium found in the Dead Sea salt that helps to reduce the inflammation that is associated with psoriasis as well as help hydrate the skin.
