The area from which AHAVA Dead Sea Salt Products derive their ingredients is both geographically and geologically unique. The Dead Sea is the lowest spot on any continent in the world, at over 400 meters (1,300 feet) below sea level. It is also one of the saltiest; the sea has an average salinity of 35%, which precludes all sea life except microorganisms. Yet, the Dead Sea area is incredibly rich in minerals, and the salt is saturated with a wealth of these: calcium, magnesium, strontium, potassium, boron and iron, among others. The health and skin benefits of these mineral-packed salts are well known, and many spas dot the shores of this small sea.
For those unable to visit the spas in person, to soak in the beneficial waters, AHAVA Dead Sea Salt Products offer an opportunity to experience them at home. As contradictory as it may seem, the Dead Sea salts actually have hydrating and soothing effects on the skin; instead of drying skin tissues, they provide exfoliating, anti-aging and moisturizing. Even at home, AHAVA Dead Sea Salt Products provide a seaside spa experience.

Additional AHAVA Products Information
Offering a spa experience at home, AHAVA Dead Sea Salt Products are formulated with the unique mineral-rich salts from this famed body of water. Combined with carefully selected botanical extracts, these products are unadulterated with synthetic ingredients. They are made with care to protect and preserve the ecology of the area for future generations.
Although the word “salt” is not usually associated with hydration, AHAVA Softening Butter Salt Scrub proves that it can be. Salt extracted by evaporation from Dead Sea water is suspended in a coconut oil base. Jojoba seed oil, pressed from the desert-loving Simmondsia chinensis plant, almost exactly mimics natural human skin oil, providing a wonderfully effective emollient. Also present is caprilic/capric triglyceride, derived from coconut, which promotes exfoliation, encouraging a healthy skin cell turnover to renew the complexion and smooth away lines and wrinkles. The most remarkable ingredient, however, is Dunaliella salina extract. This micro-algae is one of the few organisms that can live in the high salinity of the Dead Sea, and provides beta-carotine to smooth skin and encourage cell growth.
The salt particles in hypoallergenic AHAVA Moisturizing Salt Soap provide a physical debrading benefit to loosen and remove dead skin cells and clean dirt and contaminants from the pores. The mineral content of the salt helps the skin to accept and retain moisture by strengthening the moisture barrier.
A creamy treatment, AHAVA Liquid Dead Sea Salt, uses evaporation-derived salt in a cocoa base. Vitamin E, which helps hydration, and the extract of another micro-algae, Dunaliella bardawil are also included.
