DEAD SEA MUD
DEAD SEA MUD - CARE FOR THE BODY AND SOUL
Despite years of research on the unique minerals in the Dead Sea's water and mud, scientists still do not have the answer as to why this special Dead Sea mud, from the lowest place on earth, is so beneficial for the skin and body. Yet even without a definitive scientifically based answer, hundreds of clinical trials conducted in hospitals worldwide on a range of medical problems including skin diseases, arthritis, and even cancer in patients undergoing chemotherapy, have shown that the high concentration of Dead Sea minerals is almost instantly effective in improving the skin's natural processes, easing rheumatic pains, relaxing muscles and providing inner calmness and tranquility.
The black mud harvested from the banks of the Dead Sea is in fact alluvial silt washed down from the surrounding mountains and deposited on the shores of this inland salt sea. Layer upon layer of fine silt deposits have evolved over thousands of years to form a rich Dead Sea mud containing particularly high levels of magnesium, calcium, potassium, strontium, boron and iron. The resulting mineral-rich Dead Sea mud is a natural raw material that can be used by the body as a source of essential minerals for all its basic needs.
Professional therapists in luxury spas around the world use the classic treatment of wrapping the body in warm, mineral rich mud from the Dead Sea. This results in visible toning, relieving muscle pain, moisturizing and restoring a healthy rosy glow to the skin and improving its elasticity. With increasing technological sophistication, the same professional treatment can now also be experienced while bathing at home use Aqua Therapy Mineral-Rich Body Mud.
The minerals contained within the Dead Sea mud have many beneficial effects on the skin and the body. Among other things, they help maintain moisture levels, increase blood flow to the capillaries and act as anti–oxidants. Enveloping the body in Dead Sea mud forms a sealing layer over the skin that helps infuse it with the minerals, cleansing and purifying it efficiently and restoring its natural balance. When the evaporation of moisture is decreased by sealing the skin with a layer of Dead Sea mud, its internal moisture levels increase, giving the skin a kind of 'energy boost' resulting in a radiant appearance, with a healthy rosy tone and a soft and supple feel. As this mineral-rich Dead Sea mud is a naturally healthy product, it can be recommended for weekly body-care regimes. Professional methods can be followed at home by applying it liberally to the whole body and then relaxing for half-an-hour. The Dead Sea mud is then thoroughly washed off with warm water, and the treatment is completed by massaging Aqua Therapy Massage Oil, which also contains a rich blend of Dead Sea minerals, into the skin. For daily care and added benefit to the skin, we recommend regular use of a mineral-rich bar soap such as Aqua Therapy Mud Soap. To nourish the scalp and ensure healthy hair, Aqua TherapyMineral-Rich Hydrating Mud Shampoo is recommended, with its blend of beneficial mineral concentrates and moisturizing ingredients, which combine to protect and fortify the hair.
The Aqua Therapy Mineral Rich Clarifying Mud Mask is a unique blend of carefully selected ingredients that work together to thoroughly cleanse the facial skin, hydrate and soothe it. The mineral rich Dead Sea mud, along with allantoin and chamomile extract, help absorb excess oily secretions and clarify the skin.
The purifying face mask creates a delicate exfoliating effect, which helps remove toxins and dead skin cells and encourages the skin regeneration process. This smooths the skin's outer layer and creates a sense of softness, well-being and relaxation.
Skin care using the Dead Sea mud mask is suitable for all skin types, but is especially effective for skin suffering from a functional imbalance. For example, with skin suffering from excess oils, the mask balances and calms typical irritation and redness. Applying the mask two or three times a week will generate healthy, radiant skin with a smooth matte finish.
