The Natural Choice For Healthy Skin.

Dead Sea minerals have long been renowned for their special healing abilities and it’s not surprising when you look at the special geography of where they come from.


What makes the Dead Sea location so special?

There are no ecosystems present due to the highest salt content found anywhere on earth (32% as opposed to the sea norm of 3% for the Mediterranean and Atlantic). Whilst it is called the Dead Sea it is in fact a lake bordering Jordan and Israel, containing roughly 45 billion metric tons of dissolved minerals situated on the Earth’s lowest elevation on land.

Unique healing properties with so many benefits.

For centuries the fabled healing properties of the Dead Sea were well known, even the bible refers to how people soaked in its waters to relieve the symptoms of Leprosy but they might have well have been referring to Psoriasis. In more recent times with the progression of Dermatology these healing benefits have been measured and quantified. These ultimately concluded that the properties of the minerals in Dead Sea mud and salt have an effective, good safety profile making them ideal to use as a non medicinal alternative for helping alleviate the symptoms of some skin conditions. 

Research conducted by the Dead Sea Research Centre (D.S.R.C) as well as other renowned organisations conclude that a wide variety of minerals, some unique to the Dead Sea are proven to alleviate symptoms of the following conditions:

Acne – The high Sulphur content cleanses and purifies the skin of excess sebum that creates a breeding ground for spot causing bacteria

Psoriasis – Toxin elimination is boosted, cellular regeneration and circulation improves which can dramatically lengthen the period of intermission

Eczema – The uncomfortable burning and itching sensations can be reduced from the first application, the epidermis structure can repair to the point that the dryness is greatly reduced and deep cracks are smoothed

Wrinkles - Research into the benefits of minerals from the Dead Sea has shown a potential 40% reduction in the depth of wrinkles is achievable

Arthritis - Minerals in the mud found in the Dead Sea improve blood circulation necessary to reduce the inflammatory response, together with the detoxifying agent and general muscle relaxant

Dry Skin – The high mineral content in Dead Sea salt and mud helps both in cleansing and replacing required electrolytes necessary for healthy skin

Skin Allergies - High Magnesium and Bromine content can counteract allergic reactions by cleansing, detoxifying the skin, providing smoothness and relaxation. Potassium and Magnesium then boost the healing regenerative process of the epidermis, which can dramatically improve the appearance of skin through the reduction of redness and repairing of the protective layer.

Case Study – 4 day skin recovery.

We recently heard from a customer that had suffered a bad skin reaction on a ring finger and decided to try out La Cure Papaya Body Butter to see if its Dead Sea salt content could relieve the itching and burning. She was so impressed with its healing qualities that she wrote to us detailing the remarkable changes over the four days: 

Day 1 – The skin was incredibly itchy with a very uncomfortable burning sensation. The skin’s surface was dry and peeling which I hadn’t experienced before. The skin irritation has also spread to the skin area between my next finger as well. I applied Papaya Body Butter, at first I was struck by the beautiful Papaya fragrance and the rich creamy texture, it felt more like a luxuriously scented treat than a skin treatment. The cream instantly absorbed into my skin and within five minutes the burning itching sensation had greatly reduced.

Day 2 – I applied it for the second time and had already noticed the dry, flaky patches of skin were completely gone and the surface had a more dewy, moisturised appearance. The dry patch between my fingers had completely disappeared.

Day 3 – After the third application the redness had reduced greatly and the skin’s appearance continued to improve, the burning, itching sensation had not returned since the initial application on day 1.

Day 4 – The redness was virtually gone and my skin was almost back to normal. I was hugely impressed with the results I experienced in such a short period of time. The cream smells and feels so beautiful that I’ll happily be using this for normal everyday use moving forwards.
