Let's regroup. So far we've asked you to put lentils, algae, fungi, various raw milks, spices, breakfast foods, flowers, eggs and charcoal on your face and body. April Fools Day came and went and you didn't flinch. You're right to trust us, we're nerds and love the raw science. Where shall we go today? Take our very clean hands, we won't lead you astray...
...we're off to the Dead Sea.
Cue Wayne and Garth dream sequence... (https://youtu.be/Y_76RK_5bBs)
The Dead Sea borders Jordan to the east and the West Bank and Israel to the west. At 1,400 feet below sea level, it is the lowest terrestrial point on Earth. This hyper-mineralized body of water also has one of the highest concentrations of salt and other minerals in the world. The lake, or some version of it, is extremely old, dating back 200+ million years ago. Over this time the minerals and salt has settled and churned over and over, creating a dense rich crust one to four miles thick.
What does this mean to you? Good question. Let us mud-skip ahead.
The soap pictured (Mudskipper) is made with highly mineralized mud from the Dead Sea. This mud; thus this soap, contains natural concentrations of more than 25 different health essential minerals like magnesium, calcium, sodium, potassium and salts. Nourishing and great for skin problems, it is an excellent soap for oily skin but gentle enough for sensitive skin. The mud also provides light exfoliation, and is thought to help with pH balancing, skin elasticity, anti-inflammation and increased blood circulation. This is the same mud used in facials and masks at high end spas and salons, the only difference is that it's in our gently cleansing, highly moisturizing soap and is relatively dirt cheap.
