Why does the Dead Sea have such a unique healing ability, more than other seas or oceans?
Comparatively, the Dead Sea contains 32% salt water density whereas ordinary sea waters contain only 3% density. This relatively high density in part of the dead Sea means a high concentration of such minerals as magnesium, calcium, potassium and bromide. Renowned for its skin nourishing properties as well as ease of rheumatic discomfort, the energizing of the circulatory system and relaxing of nerves, exposure to the Dead Sea is endorsed by European Health Funds for these numerous benefits. Sending their members to be treated by this unique natural wonder, visitors have enjoyed relief of chronic skin and rheumatic conditions. The free floating experience permits a certain freedom to relax and promotes easier movements that enhance the effects of physiotherapy.

What is left of these buildings can be seen today at Ein Gedi and Ein Bokek.
What is the advantage of separating the active ingredient mineral bars from the cream in the Precise range of Premier products?
The answer to this is a simple one, and that is protection against oxidation. Oxidation occurs when active ingredients in skincare products meet air. When this contact happens, those active ingredients are attacked by the oxygen, reducing their performance. Likewise, water in creams contain oxygen which can have the same effect on the cream, thus further depleting its efficiency. That is never the case with a Premier product. Premier has cultivated and patented a method of separating active ingredients from the cream to preserve the formula and safeguard it against the exposure. This secret purification process "freezes" the active ingredients at room temperature, similar to how water is a liquid at room temperature but becomes a solid when reduced in temperature. It is this process that ensures every one of Premier's fine products maintain their effectiveness for longer.
