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).
