Dead Sea Mud (Black Mud)

The Dead Sea is the deepest salt lake in the world. Its saline content is approximately six-eight times higher than that of the oceans. It is named the Dead Sea because the salt concentration is so significant that plant and animal life cannot be sustained in these waters.

In addition to its noteworthy sodium chloride (salt) content, the Dead Sea is remarkably rich in other minerals including Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium and an array of other essential and trace minerals. It is said that those that swim in the Dead Sea easily float on the water’s surface due to the high concentration of sodium chloride.

Dead Sea Mud, also known as Black Mud, is a fine, wet mud comprised of the minerals found at the bottom of the Dead Sea. It has been used for centuries for its beauty, cosmetic and health benefits.

Natural Sourcing Dead Sea Mud is carefully sourced and packaged to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this highly nutritive mud. 0.25% Grapefruit Seed Extract has been added to extend its shelf life.
