The whole world is concentrated in a drop of water
The Dead Sea water contains exceedingly high concentrations of minerals. There are 26 different minerals such as kalium, calcium, chloro, bromine, ferric sulphate, zink, copper, magnesium, ammonium, fuor, lithium, iodine, hydrogen, phosphate, carbonate, silicon, strontium and mineral water. This mixture of minerals does not exist in any other sea or ocean.

The main functions and the active ingredients
Due to its characteristics, the minerals fulfill a function as regulators and activators of many important cellular functions.
Unfortunately, aging, bad food habits, pollution, stress, etc. provoke a lack of important minerals required for the human body.
Without minerals we grow old quicker, we get less energy, water scarcity increases and we become more susceptible to various infections.
Thus, without minerals the skin cannot humidify itself and the aging process cannot be slowed.
Water loss is the main cause of dry skin. Softness and elasticity of skin are directly linked to its humidity.
Skin only absorbs those substances which it identifies as similar components of its own cells.
Dead Sea minerals are the same minerals that our skin and our body use in order to support the health of organisms.
Minerals can easily penetrate into the epidermis and effectively have an influence because of small sized molecules in therapeutic Dead Sea products (salt, dirt, lotions).
These minerals, mainly magnesium, calcium, bromine, sodium, chlorine and trace elements (strontium, iodine, lithium, zinc, sulfate, etc.) stabilizing of metabolosm and the lever of skin hydration.
The molecular structure of minerals allows the retention the hydration of our skin.
Minerals use the method of interpenetration to convert humidity which is essential for the normal functioning of the outer layers of the epidermis.
Active functions of minerals concentrated in a drop of water
⇒ Calcium: it favors intracellular exchange.
It strengthens cell membranes, facilitates pain, and activates enzymes.
⇒ Magnesium: it is an antiallergen specifically designed for sensitive skin.
It is a humidifier and one of the elements for many enzymes which are necessary for cellular activity.
It is a necessary condition for maintaining the youth of skin.
It clears free radicals and sets the essential mineral balance.
Significant deficiency of magnesium was found in the skin of psoriasis patients hence the life-giving benefits of the Dead Sea, where the concentration of magnesium is 20 times higher than in other seas.
⇒ Sodium: sodium ions remove dead skin cells and improve the dermal absorption and make it softer.
It is ideal for very dry skin. Sodium supplements the water balance of the body and protects it from dehydration and also by adjusting the acid balance of cells.
⇒ Potassium: it humidifies and moisturizes the upper layers of the epidermis improving the ability of cells to retain water.
This element guaranties hydrous equilibre body at the cellular level.
This is the control of water balance, it increases metabolism and helps the regeneration and growth of cells.
⇒ Bromine: it is an antiseptic, it treats and facilitates skin diseases such as psoriasis and improves nerve endings.
Penetrating into the functions of the nerves it calms them (the neves) and promotes quality sleep.
This is also the mitigatory antiseptic stimulating the natural processes of cell recovery.
Due to its special geographical location, the Dead Sea has accumulated the most minerals the most powerful concentration of bromine on the planet.
⇒ Zinc: the regulation of enzymes and cell formation is the main role of this element.
It has an effect of an ananti-inflammatory and wound healing substance.
⇒ Iodine: it is a powerful external antiseptic.
It is essential for the production of thyroxine, iodine is an enzyme that regulates the energy of cell metabolism.
⇒ Chlorine: it maintains osmotic equilibrium of the cerebrospinal fluid and gastric acid.
It humidifies, refreshes, strengthens and softens skin.
Summarizing biological processes occurring in the skin:
♦ The cells need a certain combination of minerals to prevent evaporation.
♦ The humidity is essential for the increased blood stream to the skin.
♦ The blood stream contains oxygen for cellular metabolism
Vitamins presented by KosMystik gamma
Vitamins are essential for normal development and body functioning.
They make a contribution to the transfer of one molecule to another, and one electron atom to another according to the processes that can be equated to the phenomena of biocatalysis.
In order to slow down the aging process our skin needs to get nourishment and gets vitamins.
Our body cannot synthesize vitamins in a sufficient quantity by itself, not having a single-point energy value, vitamins should be taken with limits.
That is why the dosage of vitamins in KosMystik’s range (gamma) is chosen very carefully for its optimal absorption by the body.
Vitamin A: Vitamin A is fat – soluble.
In the body, it exists as retinol, retinal, retinoic acid, and retinal phosphate.
These molecules are susceptible to the influence of oxygen exacerbated by light and heat.
Vitamin A is an antioxidant, the element which protects against disease by neutralizing unstable oxygen molecules and free radicals.
This vitamin is essential for night vision, growth, cellular differentiation and reproduction.
It also supports tskin health (prevents acne and dermatitis) and the surface of tissues, especially those which have mucus membranes.
Mucus membranes are the first protective barrier and therefore vitamin A helps in the fight against colds and infections of the eyes, ears, nose, throat, lungs, etc.
Vitamin E: Vitamin E or tocopherol is a lipophilic vitamin (fat-soluble but insoluble in water), it is widely represented in vegetable oils and has an antioxidant effect in combination with vitamin C and glutamine.
Also, this is a special protector to the body cells.
It plays an important role in the mechanisms of reproduction and enters the synthesis of red cells called erythrocyte.
There are 8 forms of vitamin E (four tocopherols and four tocotrienols) the most active of them is alpha-tocopherol.
Panthenol (provitamin B5): it is one of the active ingredients in many pharmaceutical creams known for its soothing therapeutic properties.
Panthenol is absorbed by the skin cells, it declares itself in various tissues of the body in the form of pantothenic acid and its absence leads to the degeneration of the skin.
It plays a fundamental role in the metabolism of all cells and is used in the treatment of skin ulcers, burns and cuts.
Vitamin B5 is a precursor of vitamin A, it is essential for the metabolism of sugars, fats and proteins and is involved in the synthesis of some hormones.
Panthenol regenerates the skin and protects it from harmful sun rays.
It is not toxic and is very well absorbed by skin.
