Description

Westlab Relax Dead Sea Salt Scrub and Soak is essentially a spa product that can be used at home. It doubles up as both a body scrub and a fragrant bath soak and is formulated to help nourish, soften, and smoothen the skin.

As a body scrub, the salts are rubbed over the skin. This has a gentle exfoliating, cleansing, and moisturising effect, as dead cells are removed and the skin below is replenished.

When added to the bath, the naturally fragrant, relaxing, and detoxifying soak will soothe and moisturise the skin with its salts and essential oils.

As well as Dead Sea Salt, which has been celebrated for its benefits to the skin for millennia, this formula contains a wide range of botanical oils. These work to nourish the skin and leave it feeling healthier, as well as providing other general health benefits.

Apricot kernel oil is rich in oleic acid and improves the flexibility of the skin; rice bran contains Vitamin B and antioxidants that protect the skin; and Vitamin E helps repair the skin and fight inflammation. In addition to these, the scrub also contains essential oils like frankincense, bergamot, and geranium that aid sleep, enhance mood, and boost general wellbeing.

These natural oils deliver a calming, natural fragrance, especially when used in the bath. Note that this body scrub contains no artificial additives and is microbead-free.

Research & Evidence

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts could not find clinical data on the benefits of Relax Dead Sea Salt Scrub and Soak in psoriasis. However, Dead Sea water contains a higher concentration of chloride, magnesium, sodium, calcium, potassium, bromide, sulfate and bicarbonate than other seas around the world.

Especially due to the high concentration of magnesium which helps retain water inthe skin, it is thought to have moisturising properties (1).

Studies have shown that the combination of Dead Sea salt balneotherapy (bathing) and phototherapy (exposure for UVB) have a great benefit on psoriatic lesions (2).

One study clearly points to the phototherapy as the most important factor, but it is also suggested that the Dead Sea water per se contributes to the effect (3).

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts were not able to find clinical data on Relax Dead Sea Salt Scrub and Soak and the effect in people with atopic dermatitis. Dead sea water contains a higher concentration of chloride, magnesium, sodium, calcium, potassium, bromide, sulfate and bicarbonate than other seas around the world.

Especially because of the high concentration of magnesium, which helps the skin retain water, the Dead Sea water is thought to have moisturizing properties (1).

In dry skin conditions, including atopic dermatitis, water loss from the upper skin layer is linked to a reduced skin barrier function (4).

Furthermore, a study in patients with atopic dry skin showed that treatments with dead sea salt for 6 weeks decreased the transepidermal water loss from the skin significantly, enhanced stratum corneum hydration, and reduced skin roughness and inflammation (5).
