Skin Care

By Kim Taylor

Rejuvenating your skin with Dead Sea minerals may seem like an oxymoronic concept, but women (and men) have been indulging in this healing practice for longer than we’ve had written accounts of it. Benefits are said to include maintaining proper moisture levels, restoring skin tissue, providing anti-allergy prevention, and offering protection against airborne pollution. Immerse your self from head to toe in these Dead Sea products, and emerge revitalized.

Ahava, which means “dearly loved” or “love” in Hebrew, offers a full line of innovative, mineral-based skincare products based on Dead Sea minerals. Ahava’s Time Line All Day Moisture with SPF 15 is light and not greasy, and will hydrate for twelve hours. This rich, nourishing cream utilizes marine extracts from the Dead Sea, which contains magnesium, calcium and potassium, as well as vitamin-rich dunaliella algae, and anti-inflammatory extracts from the Trigonella shrub and Jujube tree to soothe and nourish skin. Visit to view the complete line of serums, ampoules, eye treatments and creams.

One With Nature Hand & Body Lotion fuses healing Dead Sea minerals with shea butter for a luxurious, pampering treat to relax muscles and stimulate circulation. This fragrance-free indulgence is 100% natural and paraben-free, phthalate-free, and lauryls/laureths-free, and leaves skin feeling velvety soft. With every purchase, a portion of the proceeds go to support the Friends of the Earth Middle East Dead Sea preservation. Check out to see the astounding Dead Sea soaps this product line features, which includes soaps made with honey, olive oil and Dead Sea mud.

Adovia is the source for all things Dead Sea, including toners, soaps, superb eczema products, body lotion, a deep pore mineral cleanser, salt scrubs, body mud and much more. This line marries Dead Sea minerals with aloe vera, vitamin C and green tea as well as a variety of healing herbs for remarkable effectiveness, and uses only superior ingredients to maintain quality. Visit and soothe your tired skin with one of the line’s Skin Solutions products, which includes help for those who wrestle with psoriasis, acne, wrinkles and eczema – for blessed relief.

If you can’t actually wade knee-deep into the Dead Sea, these products are the next best thing – and far less expensive than the airfare, so go ahead and treat yourself!
