Ancient Cures and Active DeadSea Minerals
I had a friend come back from the Dead Sea years ago and I remember his skin was glowing. Literally, lit from within. It was the most beautiful memory I have of clean, perfect skin. AHAVA has harnessed the properties of the Dead Sea and transformed them into killer, skincare products. 'Using osmosis, the AHAVA Osmoter, a clinically proven extract of mineral- rich Dead Sea water.''
The Age Control category draws moisture from the inside out, where it is most needed. The result is a smoothing effect, much like a baby's bottom, reducing fine lines and surface wrinkles, protecting the skin against damage. Mostly, I love the way it feels and smells. It has a clean, fresh scent and applies like water.
Age Control Moisturizer SPF15 'has Hyaluronic acid and the Osometer. Amino Acids enhance water absorption with up to 12 hours of hydration.' Packed with a whole bunch of good stuff, I rely on the after effects. My skin looks and feels lighter, fresh from a spa visit only better. Like I'd been bouncing atop the ancient waters of the Dead Sea. If I can't go there now, AHAVA is the closest thing to being immersed in the healing waters.
The Age Control Intensive Serum and Age Control Eye Cream are up next. I can't wait to add them to my skincare, beauty routine.
I love AHAVA, and the idea of using pure minerals extracted from the earth. I'm eating clean, juicing and taking care of my body on the inside, while AHAVA takes care of my skin. Pretty cool. For now the Dead Sea is on my Bucket List, while AHAVA is on my nightstand.
I always try new brands on my skin first, to see how they react. I'm confident my clients will be instant AHAVA fans, loving the moisturizers and the Dead Sea concept.
"The Dead Sea has attracted visitors from around the Mediterranean basin for thousands of years. Biblically, it was a place of refuge for King David. It was one of the world's first health resorts (for Herod the Great), and it has been the supplier of a wide variety of products, from balms for Egyptian mummification to potash for fertilizers. People also use the salt and the minerals from the Dead Sea to create cosmetics and herbal sachets. In 2009, 1.2 million foreign tourists visited on the Israeli side.
The sea has a density of 1.24 kg/L, which makes swimming similar to floating. " Wiki
