Ingredient of the Month: Dead Sea Salt

Pretty Little Ingredient of the month Natural Sea Salt Summer Skin Exfoliating Glow72


The incredible benefits of dead sea salt…

Every decision we make at Pretty Little Treats has taken careful consideration; from the way we package our products to the wonderfully natural ingredients that we use to create our beautiful bath treats.

In May, we’re taking a closer look at the incredible benefits of dead sea salt; with its high mineral content, this amazing ingredient works absolute wonders for your skin.

Before dead sea salt is popped into our delightful products at Pretty Little Treats, it’s extracted from the Dead Sea, a salt lake more than 15 million years old. The dead sea can be found bordering Jordan to the east, and Israel to the west.

Among the planet’s saltiest bodies of water, the Dead Sea has a salinity of 34.2%, which is ten times saltier than the ocean! Its remarkable saltiness means that it is supremely rich in minerals, including magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium, which, when absorbed, all reap many health and beauty benefits.

The Dead Sea was one of the world’s very first health resorts. Having retained the purity of its ancient waters, it remains a place of healing and tranquillity for tourists from across the world. The healing properties of Dead Sea salt can help relax muscle cramps and relieve soreness, making salt baths a popular pain-relief method among top athletes everywhere.

Researchers have even found that bathing in the Dead Sea over the course of 10 days can improve relief from pain, fatigue, stiffness, anxiety, headaches, sleep problems, and joint swelling.

Dead sea salt is also deeply hydrating and can reduce redness. It cleanses, disinfects and acts as an excellent exfoliator, promoting beautifully, youthful skin. Dead sea salt is so effective that it has even been used to treat skin disorders such as acne and psoriasis.  

The minerals found in Dead Sea salt aid in detoxifying your body, both inside and out. Once released, these minerals also increase blood flow and optimize the metabolic process of the skin cells and tissue. This can help improve the overall look of your skin, and, in some cases, even minimize the appearance of unwanted cellulite.

At Pretty Little Treats we create an Exfoliating Sea Salt Body Polish which gently helps to remove dead skin cells, leaving skin not just feeling silky soft, but also smelling amazing too! Check out our body polish’s amazing reviews; our customers absolutely love it. 

If you prefer a luxurious soak we have our beautifully scented Bath Crystals fragrance with citrus, jasmin, rose and white musk. And Gents don’t get left out either, how about a deeply relaxing muscle soak with our Serious Bath Soak to ease those aches and pains away.

We only use the most natural ingredients to make our delightful little bath and body treats, which we source from local UK suppliers where possible. Creating lovely products with amazing health benefits is super important to us and we aim to support other local businesses in the process! 

In celebration of this fab ingredient we’re offering 10% OFF all of our Dead Sea Salt products all through May! So a great chance to get your Skin ready for that Summer Glow!
