Dead Sea salt is the salt taken from Dead Sea bordering Jordan to the east, and Palestine and Israel to the west. Many tourists visit the dead sea for its well known therapeutic effects. The water of the Dead Sea has much higher salt content as compared to the water in the oceans and is substantially denser. Thus the minerals found in the Dead Sea salts such as magnesium, calcium, iodine, zinc, bromide, potassium and sulfur are higher. There has been an increase in use of Dead Sea Salts in beauty and health products to keep the skin healthy and well nourished.
