Some say that Himalayan salt contains up to 84 different trace minerals. As it contains about 98 % of sodium chloride, it means that ony around 2 % is made out of those various trace minerals. Dead Sea salt contains only about 30 % of sodium chloride, the remaining 70 % is full of minerals beneficial for our health. This is the biggest difference between Himalayan salt and Dead Sea salt.
We chose salt from the Dead Sea because of the richness of the minerals; 12 of them are not found in any other natural waters in the world. The composition of Dead Sea salt is extremely similar to that of human blood, which makes it naturally compatible with the human body. The beneficial properties of the Dead Sea have been known for thousands of years. Even Cleopatra has visited the Dead Sea because of its healing properties and its excellent influence on the skin. A Dead Sea bath reduces the symptoms of psoriasis, atopic dermatitis or even rheumatism. Just breathing the air saturated with salt and minerals has a positive effect on asthma and other lung diseases.
Salt is the essence of all these pro-health properties of the Dead Sea. Especially because the salinity of the Dead Sea is as high as 30% and is 10 times higher than the salinity of the Mediterranean Sea or the Atlantic Ocean.
That is why we are building salt caves from Dead Sea salt. We know that it is the best material for building salt caves and our extensive research, years of experience and tens of thousands of satisfied clients prove that.
