The healing powers of the Dead Sea are known from ancient times. 2,000 years ago, King Herod soaked in its water and bathed at its thermal as a remedy. Despite its morbid name, the Dead Sea is source of rich minerals which are known especially for rejuvenating and invigorating the skin, improve metabolism and promote good circulation. Ahava is the leading company to manufacture skin care products made of minerals and mud of the Dead Sea. Founded in 1988, the company is especially known for anti-aging products, hand creams and facial cleansers.
