Authentic Dead Sea Salt is used as the basis for this soothing mineral soak, together with Epsom salts to help relax and detox your muscles. Research has shown that that bathing in high magnesium Dead Sea Salts enhances hydration of the outer layers of the skin and improves skin barrier function. This leads to softer skin and reduced inflammation1. It is also recommended for athletes as part of their training and recovery2. Active Muscle Soak also contains the warming organic essential oils of black pepper and ginger, shown to relieve joint pain3,4.
