About Deep Sea Cosmetics
Deep Sea Cosmetics has formulated a collection of products that blend the powerful benefits of Dead Sea minerals and a unique peptide complex of synthesized proteins found in the most common types of collagen. This combination is also blended with antioxidants, vitamins, and herbal extracts known to enhance skin’s health and natural beauty. When the Peptide Complex is added to cultured human fibroblasts, it stimulates them to produce the main components of youthful skin: collagen, elastin and a key glycan, hyaluronic acid, which can hold up to a thousand times its weight in water.
In youthful skin, collagen fibers are bound tightly together by elastin forming a water-saturated net, giving the skin elasticity and turgidity. As skin ages, collagen production slows. Environmental and other stressors add to the damage, making the elastin net thin until it gradually loses the ability to retain water, resulting in dry, sagging skin.
Deep Sea Cosmetics has advanced the technology of preserving and naturally enhancing skin hydration through a biological approach to skincare that stands the test of time.

About The Dead Sea
The Dead Sea reflects something of the nature of this lake. Known in the Bible as the 'Salt Sea,' this inland body of water with its high mineral content allows nothing to live in its waters.
Deep Sea Cosmetics confidently and proudly stands behind each and every product that we sell, and we pledge that we will always uphold the highest standards of safety for our customers around the world.
The Lowest Point on Earth
The Dead Sea is located in the Syro-African Rift, a 4,000-mile fault line in the Earth's crust. The lowest point of dry land on earth is the shoreline of the Dead Sea at 1,300 feet below sea level. That the lake is at the lowest point means that water does not drain from this lake. Daily 7 million tons of water evaporate but the minerals remain, causing the salt content to increase. Figures for the Dead Sea's salinity today range from 26-35%.
Nearly 10 times as salty as the world's oceans and twice as saline as the Great Salt Lake in Utah, the Dead Sea is rich with minerals. The Dead Sea Works company on the southwest side of the lake employs 1,600 people around the clock to harvest the valuable minerals from the water. Potash is the most valuable of those extracted today and is used in the manufacture of fertilizer.
The unique concentration of the Dead Sea waters has long been known to have medicinal value. Aristotle, Queen of Sheba, King Solomon, and Cleopatra were all familiar with this and modern doctors as well often prescribe patients with skin ailments to soak in the waters of the Dead Sea. Because of the dropping level of the Dead Sea, the southern end is no longer under water, except for that which is channeled by aqueducts for the purpose of extracting minerals.
The Dead Sea, unlike the Sea of Galilee to the north, does not figure prominently in the biblical narratives. Its most important role was as a barrier, blocking traffic to Judah from the east. An advancing army of Ammonites and Moabites apparently crossed a shallow part of the Dead Sea on their way to attack King Jehoshaphat (2 Chron 20). Ezekiel has prophesied that one day the Dead Sea will be fresh water and fishermen will spread their nets along the shore.
