In addition, Dead Sea mud can also boost moisture levels, therefore is especially recommended for dry skin, and as an anti-aging treatment. After applying black mud products the skin feels smoother, more hydrated and more evenly toned. Using a black mud wrap over the entire body or a black mud facial mask once or twice a week on a regular basis can dramatically change the appearance of your skin and help it feel smoother and healthier.

The mineral rich black mud is used in many of Jericho Skincare products, including masks, soaps and shampoos. Black mud has been shown to have anti-microbial properties, thus preventing bacteria growth. For this reason it is recommended for the treatment of acne, since acne is mainly caused by bacteria clogging up pores and causing inflammation.
