A beneficial touch for the skin
The Dead Sea mud, in addition to its tremendous therapeutic effect, also offers aesthetic effects to the skin. This is due to its unique natural ability to regenerate the vital skin functions in a natural way. This regeneration process is due to the ability of its fine grains to penetrate very deeply into the epidermis thus performing a deep and effective cleansing of fat and dust residues and generally of any pollutant that could damage the skin. As a result, the skin is clean, radiant and hydrated.
