We've sourced the power of the Dead Sea to make the most health-forward solution to healthier, happier skin rejuvenated by the elements and minerals found in the life-enhancing Dead Sea.
Calcium stands at the head of the list of minerals in regards to its importance to the body. It is the main component of the skeleton and constitutes about 2% of the weight and about half the entire quantity of minerals in the body. For this reason, it is important to ensure that your body is consistently nourished and supported with a proper calcium intake.
Calcium participates in the transfer of the neural impulses between neurons, and in the contraction process of the skeletal muscles and the heart muscle. Calcium also accelerates the processes of breaking down the fats and proteins in the cells, and constitutes a vital factor for the blood coagulation process. Calcium deficiency are known to cause osteoporosis and acceleration of the body's aging processes.
Calcium in the skin layer
Calcium in the skin layer plays an important role in the cell division and renewal process, from the layer of the dermis to the epidermis, through creation of protein kinase C enzymes (PKC). Normal cell division gives the skin flexibility and a fresh appearance.
Calcium also plays an important part in creation of the epidermis layer's skin barrier. A proper calcium level protects the skin from dryness, particularly in cold weather or after chemical peel. Calcium also participates in creation of the skin's own antioxidant system that combats free radicals and radiation. It protects the elastic fibers from oxidation and changes caused to DNA. Recent studies have revealed that a high calcium level in the skin protects it from early aging processes.
Zinc is integral in the immune system and the body's self-repair system. It participates in cell division, in the growing process, in healing wounds, and in keeping a correct acidity balance. It constitutes a component in scores of enzymatic reactions in the human body and as a basis in the hair growing process. Zinc oxide is one of the effective radiation screens in the cosmetics industry.
Zinc in the skin layer
Zinc in the skin layer contributes to cell renewal, is required for collagen production, and participates in elastin synthesis. Zinc is required to repair damage and duplication of the DNA. Zinc combats free radicals, improves secretion of the cutaneous lipid (sebum) and helps in acne conditions. In cases of skin damage, Zinc, which constitutes an important element in the immune system, participates in the recovery processes of the damaged tissue.
Magnesium is essential for the body's proper functioning. It works (together with various enzymes) in 300 different biochemical breakdown and building processes carried out continuously in the body. Magnesium helps in building the bones, producing protein, making vitamin D available to the body and giving vital energy to the cells.
Magnesium in the skin layer:
Magnesium is absorbed easily through the skin layer. At the Dead Sea the concentration of the magnesium salts is ten times higher than in any other seawater. The Dead Sea's abundance of magnesium rapidly heals and soothes the skin, prevents redness, itching and irritations which are the skin's reaction to allergies. Magnesium penetrates through the living skin layers and assists in the metabolic process, in circulation of the oxygen through the blood and in the intercellular neural transmission. It strengthens the cell membranes and helps in repair of damage to the cell nucleus. Magnesium helps the skin to combat aggressions by giving energy which activates the cells and the immune system.
Potassium maintains the existence of a balance of fluids in the cell and is essential for daily existence. Potassium helps muscular activity and participates in the process of sending neural information through the neurons. It releases energy from proteins, fat and carbohydrates during metabolism for the use of the cells and muscles. Potassium, unlike other minerals, is stored in the actual cells and works from there.
Potassium in the skin layer
Potassium is responsible for maintaining a suitable level of acidity in your skin. It balances the transfer of fluids in the cells and maintains a high level of moisture in the skin. It introduces nutrients into the cell membranes and participates in the protein synthesis. It helps to neutralize free radicals and to calm acne outbreaks.
There is sulfur in all the body's cells and particularly in the keratin cells which are rich in protein and build the skin layers, hair and nails. Sulfur is part of the chemical structure of the amino acids that build the cells, and is essential in the process of absorbing some of the vitamins in the body. Sulfur helps to kill bacteria and cleanses the blood, it helps the liver to clean the body of toxins such as lead, aluminum and mercury.
Sulfur in the skin layer
Sulfur earned the title "the beauty mineral" by virtue of its contribution to the cell renewal process. It helps the cells to rise to the top skin layer and allows forming of a new layer of cells. Sulfur is used as an antiseptic substance that kills bacteria and fungus. Sulfur tells the skin to combat diseases such as dandruff, eczema, psoriasis and various inflammations. In addition, sulfur must be present for the skin to create collagen, which contributes to smoothness and softness of the skin.
Phosphorus is an essential basis for almost all known life forms. Inorganic phosphorus (phosphate ions) serves as part of the nuclear molecules (DNA and RNA), part of the bone structure and the cell membranes (phospholipids). Phosphorus is the main negative ion in the intracellular fluid and plays a part in maintaining the balance of acidity and electrolytes in the body. Living cells use phosphorus in order to produce energy (ATP).
Phosphorus in the skin layer
Phosphorus' main role is in protein production which is essential for creation of new cells. This mineral is important and essential for proper functioning of the skin system starting from the creation of energy for the cells, the metabolic process, and ultimately the capacity for self-repair of cells damaged because of external aggressions.
Sodium helps to maintain balanced acidity (pH) in the body and prevents fluid loss. In addition it participates in the neural activity and assists contracting of the muscles. At the Dead Sea Minerals the concentration of sodium is relatively lower than other sea salts.
Sodium in the skin layer
Sodium maintains osmotic balance of fluids outside the cells and improves the metabolism in the cells. It allows penetration of water to the skin and increases the flexibility. An essential mineral for healing dry skin conditions.
Lithium salts serve as a mood stabilizer and antidepressant, because of lithium's influence on the brain cells and the nervous system.
Lithium in the skin layer
Lithium relieves skin diseases such as psoriasis, helps to prolong cell life and maintains the nervous system health in the short and the long-term.
Boron is a mineral that belongs to the trace element group that is essential for creation of different plants. The body requires boron in a minimum quantity and it helps to maintain and strengthen the skeletal system in particular as it ages. It prevents calcium and magnesium loss, participates in maintaining the health of the cell membrane, and calms premenstrual manifestations.
Boron in the skin layer
Boron helps to channel the hormone functions in the skin, particularly estrogen and testosterone. A boron deficiency weakens the cell membranes.
Bromine is one of the primary Dead Sea Minerals. Its concentration at the Dead Sea is one of the highest in the world (75% more than the average in normal seawater). In its natural form, Bromine comes from the water of the Dead Sea (Bromide) and helps to calm the central nervous system.
Bromine in the skin layer
Bromine helps to relieve stress in the skin and indirectly soothes sensitivities.
The human body reacts to Strontium much like Calcium because of the similarity in the chemical properties. According to recent studies it has become clear that Strontium increases bone density. In medicine, Strontium compounds serve as some of the drugs used against tetanus and against skin irritations.
Strontium in the skin layer
Strontium has effective properties for prevention of itchiness and reduces signs of skin irritations and inflammation.
Manganese is essential for life in minute quantities. It is one of the components of the oxidoreductase, transferase, hydrolase enzymes, and the lectin protein and plays a key role in photosynthesis and oxygen production.
Manganese in the skin layer
Manganese participates in the natural process of neutralization of oxidants in the skin (antioxidants) and protects the cells from injury. It participates in production of amino acids, cholesterol, and carbohydrates that serve as building blocks in forming of a healthy skin layer.
