The Dead Sea Spa Magik range of products combines the healing and protective power of Dead Sea salt and mud with organic and natural oils to improve the feel and appearance of skin.
This Skin Softener is designed for daily use on excessively dry skin. It is specially formulated for people with skin conditions, such as psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis. These conditions tend to harden the skin and cause it to feel irritated and itchy.
Dry skin problems are often exacerbated by the harsh chemicals found in many common cleansers, lotions, and other cosmetics, which remove oils from the skin and further dry it out. Irritation also causes scratching, which can lead to broken skin and a greater risk of infection.
This type of skin needs to be soothed and protected. Dead Sea Spa Magik Skin Softener helps to do this using a blend of Dead Sea salts, oils derived from avocado, jojoba, and sesame, and a liquid paraffin/petrolatum base. These ingredients help to provide intense moisturising, softening the skin, and reducing irritation.
The treatment can be used on split, damaged skin, as the minerals will help to seal the skin and prevent infection and moisture loss.
It will also help to relieve cradle cap and nappy rash, soften cuticles, protect chapped lips, and soothe dry, cracked heels; you can even use it to remove makeup from eczema-prone skin.

HelloSkin’s experts were unable to find scientific data on Dead Sea Spa Magik Skin Softener in psoriasis. However, the product contains glycerol and lactic acid which are known to help attract and retain water in the skin thereby helping to keep it well hydrated and moist.
In dry skin conditions, including psoriasis, water loss from the upper skin layer is linked to a reduced skin barrier function, which may be worsening the disease symptoms (1), and in psoriatic lesions water evaporation is increased compared to normal skin (2).
