The Medical Side: written by Dr. Trattner
A 2005 study (Int J Dermatol.) showed that bathing in magnesium rich dead sea salt improves skin barrier function, hydration and helps reduces inflammation in dry sky. Dead sea salt also reduced roughness and red skin. Magnesium salts are known to bind water and help keep the epidermis barrier stronger. Magnesium rich lotion and oil are an excellent way to relax the body.Topical preparations of magnesium lotion and oil help with sore and aching muscles. Using dead sea salt has also helped with psoriasis and atopic dermatitis when in some cases traditional western medication has failed a patient. (Dermatol Ther.) Dead seas salt is also very high in trace minerals. Magnesium and Lithium specifically have been shown to help patients with psoriasis as well.( Isr Med Assoc J.)
In cosmetic formulations honey used as a moisturizer, it is soothing, it keeps skin youthful and helps in the prevention and reduction of wrinkles. It like dead sea salt too helps regulate pH. Honey also helps to reduce pathogenic infections. (J Cosmet Dermatol.) Honey has hundreds of studies showing positive effects with wound healing and antimicrobial effects.
Aloe Vera has been used for thousands of years in skin care. Recent studies just this year have shown some promising data with helping improve burns from radiation and wound regeneration. (Medicines (Basel).( J Biomater Appl.)
All in all
Bloom Mineral Beauty uses some of Mother Nature’s favorites as a base for all of their skincare products that we tried. Both of us at H and H tried these products and neither one of us had any negative reaction (e.g. itching, redness) and that is close to a miracle. Keep your eyes posted for a Giveaway to come in the future. We hope some of your take the opportunity to try their products. We recommend the Mud Mask!
