Why does the scrub include Dead Sea Salts and Organic Sulphur?
The waters of the Dead Sea have been renowned for their therapeutic effects since ancient times – filled with magnesium, potassium, calcium chloride, and bromides.
Magnesium is important for combating both stress and fluid retention, slowing skin ageing, and calming the nervous system. Calcium is effective at preventing water retention, increasing circulation, and strengthening bones and nails. Potassium energises the body, helps to balance skin moisture, and is a crucial mineral to replenish following intense exercise. Bromides act to ease muscle stiffness and relax muscles. Sodium is important for the lymphatic fluid balance. So we can see that scrubbing with in high-quality sea salt could replenish the minerals that are critical to our skin metabolism.
Organic Sulphur softens the skin and makes it smoother, more hydrated and flexible – perfect for skin that has lost its elasticity. The sulphur compound also has an anti-inflammatory and skin-repairing effect, which may be useful for inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, acne and psoriasis. It also may help smooth and soften acne scars and may even skin tone, diminish hyper-pigmentation and age spots.

Shake the tin before use (with the lid on) to loosen scrub. Twist open and scoop out desired amount using spoon provided (please do not get contents wet). Apply to wet or dry skin in circular motions concentrating on any problem areas. Leave on for up to 5 minutes to let the oils, vitamins and minerals soak in to the skin. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry.
Repeat 2-3 times a week for best results. Store in a cool dry place with the lid on.
The Salt Parlour scrubs are suitable for people with sensitive skin although they still recommend doing a patch test at least 24 hours before using their scrubs to make sure you have no adverse reactions to our products.
For external use only. Do not use on broken or irritated skin. If you get the scrub in your eyes, rinse well with warm water. We recommend exfoliating 24 hours prior to shaving.
