How to read the ingredients of cosmetics correctly

When we buy food we usually pay attention to its content, we are all aware how important is the food we consume. With similar attention we should analyse the ingredients of cosmetics, it is not neutral on our skin what cosmetics we apply.

It is worth spending some time to study the ingredients of products we intend to buy. Under the European Union law, every cosmetic authorized to sell must have ingredients listed on the packaging, according to INCI standards (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients).

There are Latin and English names in the system, they are presented in order starting from substances used in the biggest quantity to the substances used in the smallest quantity.

Next step is just to write the particular ingredient into the search engine...

Do you know that...?

There are two kinds of salt from the Dead Sea used for commercial purpose.

The most precious is magnesium-potassium salt called carnellite salt, it is the salt enriched with macro and microelements. It is easy to recognize because it leaves “greasy” trace on the skin, characteristic only for the original salt from The Dead Sea.

The second type of salt from the Dead Sea is called “crude” salt , its chemical content is almost the same as kitchen salt. It gives the same effect like after using typical kitchen salt.

OUR ADVICE: avoid buying mud, salt or water from the Dead Sea which do not have the necessary, valid attests from trustworthy institutes and laboratories. According to research some minerals are absorbed through skin pores during the bath time also when you apply salt or mud compress. When you use low quality salt you absorb the low quality substances which can be dangerous for your body.

Special recommendation for this product: Baths helpful with treatment of psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, mycosis, directed for cleansing skin pores, acne and pimples reduction also skin condition improvement.

ATTENTION: In modern clinics the carnallite salt is commonly used for depression and neurosis treatment (absorption of magnesium by skin during the bath is proven, magnesium is a mineral necessary for depression treatment). Baths with carnallite salt are recommended for people who suffer from being overworked and exhausted.

SPECIAL RECOMMENDATION: OILY SKIN, COMBINATION SKIN, PIMPLES, ACNE, DILATED PORES

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
The most popular type of salt from the Dead Sea is carnallite salt known as magnesium-potassium salt (93-97%KCl.MgCL2.6H2O,3-7% NaCI). According to research done all over the world there are many scientific proofs and tests which state that clean, carnallite salt from the Dead Sea can help with treatment of psoriasis, mycosis, inflammatory skin diseases (e.g. atopic dermatitis) is effective against acne and pimples, recommended specially against youth acne. The salt from the Dead Sea is also used as a treatment against depression, depressive state of mind and neurosis (recommended salt baths) Dominating minerals of carnellite salt are, magnesium, potassium and calcium. Other minerals contained in smaller quantities are sodium, chromium, zinc, manganese, iron, copper. Extremely unique combination of these minerals in salt crystals and its unusual effect on human skin results that it is the most appreciated salt from the Dead Sea. The Carnallite Salt from the Dead Sea is completely different from the popular kitchen salt. Carnallite -hydrated potassium magnesium chloride (KCl - MgCl2 - 6H2O) The salt may seem wet and slightly oily even long time after it was extracted from the Dead Sea, it is natural process. Although salt stored at home can lose water and become dry it does not lose its properties. Carnallite loses water but retains oily features, even if you squeeze dry carnallite in hands it leaves greasy trace on your skin. High content of magnesium is responsible for oily skin effect. In Jordan and Israel the carnallite salt is popularly called “Semi Dry Salt”.

How to use ?

1. SALT BATHS

To prepare the bath you need to add the carnallite salt from the Dead Sea to water in such quantity to obtain the necessary salt concentration. We can divide salt baths into two categories according to their salt concentration: weak salt baths used for cosmetic and relaxing purpose-the concentration is about 0,1%-1%; strong salt baths used as treatment support- concentration about 1%-6%.

THE RIGHT SALT CONCETRATION

We are not going to write about the right salt concentration necessary for the relaxing bath because it is purely individual matter, such concentration may differ depending only on personal choices or preferences. Typical cosmetic-relaxing bath require about 0,1%-1% salt concentration however there are no objects to use higher concentration about 2%-3%. It all depends on personal preferences. What is important baths with higher salt concentration can be taken as prevention against different skin conditions e.g. dermatomycosis. When it comes to relaxing-cosmetic baths the concentration is not that relevant and it may of course be different. However for baths prepared for therapy support the concentration should not be lower than 1%.

Balneotherapy specialists recommend 1%-3% concentration for skin diseases treatment prepared for baths of the whole body, 6% concentration for baths concerning only some parts of body (e.g. feet, hands, palms) It is important to remember that most bathing therapies must last at least several weeks. During this time the baths should be taken about 4-5 times a weak using salt concentration up to 3%. Salt concentration is extremely important when it is prepared for bathing therapy. The partial baths (involving only certain parts of body e.g. feet or hands) are very comfortable also because of other reason. Water prepared for baths can be reused for later baths, we can use it until we see it is not clean enough. It would be rather problematic and difficult to block our baths in the bathrooms for longer period. ATTENTION: Other good way to solve the problem of obtaining the right concentration for bathing therapy is application of salt compress.

DID YOU KNOW?

The right carnallite salt concentration is extremely important when you want to balance the level of magnesium in the body. Did you know that human body absorbs magnesium via skin during the bath time. It may seem unreal and strange because in common opinion macro and microelements are absorbed only with food. According to the research done by dr. Waring from Biringham University human body can very quickly absorb magnesium through skin. Treatment support baths require MINIMUM 1%. Once again we would like to highlight the fact that skin absorbs all elements also the dangerous ones, that is why it is crucial to use only the high quality salt. Using our products you obtain 100% guarantee that you buy the best clinically researched products.

HOW TO USE?

METHODOLOGY OF BATHING THERAPY

We have already mentioned that the concentration prepared for relaxing baths is not as relevant as for the bathing therapy and it depends purely upon individuals preferences. How often should you take the bath? There are no restrictions concerning the relaxing bath. Anytime you feel the need you can take a bath. Different issue concerns bathing therapy. Firstly, methodology of salt bath is based on the series of bathes. When the therapy proceeds the concentration should be raised also the bath should last longer. It is advised to start from shorter time of bath with lower salt concentration than the final bath, 2-3 times a week is preferable frequency to start a treatment and step by step raise the salt concentration and the frequency to 4-5 times a week. Bathing therapy should last about 4-5 weeks. Similar time is recommended for patients staying at the Dead Sea resorts. In other cases the results of therapy may not be visible and satisfying (more information about the therapy you can find on our website) when the time of bath is longer the time to rest after the bath also should be longer. It is recommended to take a bath in the evening just before going to sleep. Do not use soap after the bath. If the salt concentration was high we advise to wash off your body delicately with small amount of water. The salt minerals should “penetrate” the skin pores during the sleep.

OPTIMAL BATH TIME

The ultimate time of bath should usually last about twenty minutes, but due to the safety reason we mentioned above first bath should last half of the typical bath that is no more than ten minutes. The first baths are a very good opportunity to observe any possible reaction on our skin such as any allergic reactions (swelling, red irritated skin) if we observe any of these symptoms we definitely must finish the bath. ATTENTION: red, slightly irritated skin are natural symptoms, especially after using for bath the higher concentration. When we talk about allergic reaction we must remember that they may be very strong and they usually occur with/or swelling. What is more, skin on our feet is less delicate than on the other parts of the body that is why it is not necessary to follow strictly the recommendations for the bath time and we might even prolong the time to 15- 20 minutes starting from the first bath treatment. For anti-mycosis, prevention baths, against excessive sweating or odor it is recommended to add tree tea oil. Baths required for children should be shorter by half.

OPTIMAL BATH TEMPERATURE

Right temperature of bath is important when we take a bath of the whole body. To obtain optimal effects we should remain in water about 20 minutes. The bath should be neither too hot nor too cold. Too hot water can be not only unpleasant but also has dangerous effects on our body. Firstly, it is dangerous for our heart it may cause heart disorder and lead to state of bad mood. Secondly, it is dangerous for people who suffer from hypertension. When we take a hot bath we must remember it should not be too long and last no longer than a few minutes. Hot salt bath is recommended only for healthy people after the physical effort, it easies muscle tension it also warms them up, what is more it eliminates sour muscles unpleasant after the effort. Too cold the same as too hot temperature of water is not advised and baths with such temperatures should last in both cases no more than a few minutes. In other case we expose our body to too low temperature and the consequences it follows (e.g. we can catch a cold) what is important, cold water narrows the skin pores as a result it limits the absorption of minerals. 35C-40C is the most preferable temperature for salt baths. This temperature is similar to the temperature of body , in such conditions we are not endangered to overheating or cooling the body. We can take such bath for optimal time – 20 minutes. For baths concerning only certain parts the temperature may be higher, even up to 50 C Hot water opens up the skin pores and enables the micro and macro elements penetrate the skin. Hot baths are specially recommended for people who suffer from excessive sweating, odor. They also help to fight mycosis or feet psoriasis. We recommend also to add to every bath a few drops of high quality tea tree oil.

2. SALT COMPRESSES

Salt compresses based on carallite salt are common and very popular method of cosmetic treatment using salt from the Dead Sea, especially for the different types of therapy support. In previous chapters we discussed the issues concerning all aspects of taking a bath. One of the most pleasant thing concerning baths is nice atmosphere it gives, relaxation you feel and of course the minerals which have the positive and beneficial effect on the whole body. Bath of the whole body apart from its positive aspects, helps to fight the skin conditions e.g. acne, it acts also as a prevention of all kinds of skin conditions and diseases on the whole body and as well on different parts of the body. These are highly appreciated advantages concerning the salt. Salt compresses have one big advantage over the typical bath. For someone who needs to use the salt only for one purpose for example as a cure against certain skin condition e.g. limps, acne, psoriasis, the compresses are much more economical in this case than traditional baths. We already know that required effects can be obtained only when they are prepared with the right salt concentration that is about 1%-6%.To prepare 3% concentration for one liter of water we need only 50 grams of salt and if we want to obtain the same concentration for the typical bath we need a few kilograms of salt. For partial body treatment we rather recommend compresses. The preparation of compress is extremely easy, you need to prepare a bowl with mineral water with temperature about 50C (optimal temperature for salt to dissolve) and then add the necessary amount of salt to obtain the preferable concentration. You can use either hot or cool water.

Next you have to soak clean, cotton cloth in the water and apply it on the particular part of the body. You may also use for this purpose the elastic bandage. Remember that the bandage should be neither too tight nor too loose. The optimal time of compress application is about 40 minutes. Keep the cloth or bandage wet all the time, if it becomes dry pour some water on the compress. Cold compresses are therapeutic additionally they have the antiseptic and painkilling effect also they help to fight swellings and tissues congestion, for these reasons they are often recommended after the injuries. To obtain stronger effect of the compress you can cool the water in the fridge. For cold compress you can add pepper mint oil (2-3 drops) the oil helps to eliminate pain and swelling. The average time of compress is about 30-40 minutes. When the bandage dries up soak it again in the water, use1 to 3 application a day depending upon disease or condition. For hot compress use water with temperature about 50 C .You may also wrap the compress with an extra dry layer of bandage or cloth to prevent the compress from drying up too quickly. Hot and cold compresses help to absorb the effusion, help to relax the smooth muscles, have the anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect. The compresses may be helpful for treatments against psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, eczema , muscle pain (fibromyalgia). It is necessary to follow the recommendations concerning the length of treatment 4-6 weeks and the right frequency of taking a bath minimum 4 times a week. What is more, warm salt compresses have warming and relaxing effect.

3. COSMETIC SALT CONCENTRATION

Solutions are commonly used as cosmetics. The ones based on the Dead Sea water MERACTIV are perfect for everyday care of oily skin, problematic skin (acne, pimples) and combination skin.

The salt solution prepared from the Dead Sea water not only narrows the pores it also cleanse them it has slightly antiseptic effect. The effects observed after the treatment are often spectacular. The average time necessary to see the first results is 2-3 weeks for more problematic skin about 4 weeks or longer if necessary. For facial skin care the optimal concentration is 1-2% Prepare the concentration by adding the salt into the mineral water or use the water from the Dead Sea, soak cotton pads and cleanse the face do not omit the forehead. After application you should feel the “tight” skin effect, if it does not occur the concentration might have been to weak.

Next apply cream on the face, correct for your skin type, we recommend creams containing the Dead Sea minerals, it might be the cream that you used up so far but it should be enriched with minerals from the Dead Sea. Pay attention not to irritate you eyes. If the salt gets to you eyes it may cause strong burning, in such case wash heavily the eyes with a lot of water or contact you doctor if the irritation is serious. For other body parts you can use stronger concentration 2-3%. Preparation of the salt concentration- see above) the concentration can be used for cleansing the problematic skin parts when you notice that your skin is “tight” apply the body lotion preferably with the Dead Sea minerals.
