Dead Sea salt refers to salt and other mineral deposits extracted or taken from the Dead Sea. The composition of this material differs significantly from oceanic salt. The Dead Sea’s mineral composition varies with season, rainfall, depth of deposit, and ambient temperature. Most oceanic salt is approximately 85 wt.% sodium chloride (the same salt as table salt) while Dead Sea salt is only 30.5 wt.% of this, with the remainder composed of other dried minerals and salts.
Dead Sea salt is said to be of the highest quality and is best for therapeutic use such as: relaxation. easing sore muscles. providing relief for certain skin conditions.
