Where to buy authentic Dead Sea salt/mud at a reasonable price?
June 9, 2017 6:42 AM   Subscribe

I have been using Dead Sea salt in bath and foot soaks in the hope of improving my skin. Could you suggest a reputable online company(preferably not Amazon and one that takes Paypal) that would sell a few pounds of fine-grained salt or mud to consumers? Caveat:I live in Asia so shipping may be an issue.Just salt or mud, nothing added as I have my own stash of essential oils.

Does iHerb carry a product you like? They ship to a ton of different countries and accept paypal, and I've purchased stuff through iHerb many times. They have always been extremely reliable and the things I've ordered (everything from food to vitamins to skincare goops to home products) have arrived damage-free and with good sell-by dates.

World of Judaica seems to meet all of your criteria except (I think) that there is no paypal option.

Ahava is an Israeli company that is top-of-the-line for Dead Sea cosmetics. They have straight salt and mud a few places on their site, though it is not cheap. The top part of the website lets you choose a shipping location and it covers parts of Asia.

They have dead sea salt. Look under bulk bath salts.

Vitalité is a Palestinian company that sells Dead Sea Salt (and not an Israeli company based in an illegal settlement). You can buy their products here: http://www.taybeh.info/en/produits2.php?cat=4.
You could also look to buy from the Jordanian side; when I was in Amman a few weeks ago I saw several, although did not note any names.

Response by poster: Thank you for all the suggestions. I'm currently using Frontier Coop's Dead Sea Salt from iHerb. I chose iHerb primarily because of the cheap international shipping but I asked because I was curious if there is a better source. The Frontier Coop's salt is fine for bath salts and foot soaks but unsuitable for making salt scrubs because it comes in large uneven granules and I need something finer.

After this bag runs out, I'll try another source.
