The Dead Sea is one if not the most saline lake (33.7% salinity) in the entire world. Its outlet-free location makes the Dead Sea a “Terminal lake”, which combined with the yearly dry and hot weather, constantly losing a massive amount of water due to natural evaporation each year. As a result, the Dead Sea is highly concentrated with salts and minerals (31.5% minerals) which are enriched with Chloride salts of Sodium, Magnesium, Calcium, Bromine, Potassium and many more. The chemical ingredients of the Dead Sea’s brine reflect erosion (The natural process by which soil and rock are removed from the Earth’s surface due to natural processes, such as wind or water flow, and then deposited in other locations) and also the recycling process of older deposits. The natural leaching of minerals out of the geological stratum has an additional contribution to the Dead Sea’s brine and to some of the thermo-mineral natural springs throughout the Dead Sea shores. Furthermore, the alluvium’s deposits create the Dead Sea mineral mud, which is worldwide known as the Dead Sea Therapeutic Black Mud.
