The Dead Sea has been a precious resource that many have fought for for centuries. The sea where no life is possible contains 300% more magnesium, sodium, calcium, potassium and bromide than other seas and oceans in the world. These minerals and trace elements have a healing effect on the skin and on health in general.
The last pharaoh of Egypt, Cleopatra VII, conquered the Egyptian empire and the surrounding areas. The Dead Sea was her ultimate trophy. When she discovered that a simple bath had a strong rejuvenating and innovative effect on her skin and health, she created the world's first spa in the sea and integrated Dead Sea minerals and mud into her daily care routine. The remains of the Cleopatra VII spas can still be seen at Ein Bokek and Ein Gedi.
Today, the Dead Sea is still famous for its healing effects, but it is a protected resource. H&B Dead Sea Minerals is one of the few brands that mines it in a responsible manner, so that it is also retained for future generations.
The global demand for natural Dead Sea cosmetics is exponentially growing due to the growing concern about harmful effects of chemicals in cosmetics on the skin and on health in general. More and more people are looking for natural solutions for skin problems due to sun exposure, pollution and low-nutrient nutrition.
Minerals play an important role in maintaining our health; they contribute to healthy skin, bones, teeth, hair, nails, nerve and muscle activity and the regulation of body fluids. The body needs minerals to be able to use vitamins. We can live longer without vitamins than with a shortage of minerals. Without minerals, the body can no longer repair damaged cells and tissue. The lack of only one trace mineral can cause a multitude of skin problems. The theory that there is a greater risk for certain types of skin cancer in someone who suffers from a deficiency of certain minerals in the body or a deficiency of a trace element such as selenium is increasingly supported by evidence from different clinical trials.

The mineral-rich products of H&B Dead Sea Minerals provide special results: they treat skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, couperosis, pigmentation marks, they delay the process of skin aging and support overall health. Even people with very sensitive skin and allergies may use the products.
Why is Dead Sea salt so effective in the daily care of the skin & in the treatment of skin complaints ?
1. Dead sea salt has the ability to retain and attract moisture. This ensures that the moisture content of the skin is balanced; dry skin is less dry and unwanted fluid accumulations disappear.
2. Dead sea salt has the power to stimulate the peeling of the skin, which works very well in the treatment of skin problems such as psoriasis and eczema.
The body cannot create minerals and must therefore take them in through food or through the skin. Because our body can not store minerals (when they have fulfilled their function they are excreted) they must be supplied continuously. The daily use of H&B dead sea creams and washing with dead sea salt is an effective way to provide your body with these minerals (naturally in combination with healthy and varied food).
Dead Sea products from H&B Dead Sea Minerals have a very beneficial effect on the general condition of the skin. A pale, flabby skin will radiate with regular use. A greasy and dry skin regains balance and healthy skin retains its good condition for a longer period of time. The use of Dead Sea products has no harmful side effects and no habituation occurs with long-term use.
