The Dead Sea is one of the main tourist attractions in Jordan. In fact, it is the #1 reason I wanted to visit Jordan, and was on my bucket list for many years before my first visit. The magical feeling of floating easily in the highly saline water, plus the chance to relax and unwind near this fascinating natural feature was all very tempting to me… And then I learned about Jordan Dead Sea products!
From face masks and lotions to salt scrubs made from the salt left after the water evaporates, there are incredible products made from Jordan’s Dead Sea. Where they were once difficult to purchase if you weren’t in Jordan, you can now find Jordan Dead Sea products available online. Here are 10 of the best Jordan Dead Sea products to inspire you to treat yourself or give them as a gift.
This post was originally published in May 2021, and was updated most recently in April 2023.
1. Dead Sea Bath Salts
Of all the Jordan Dead Sea products you might want to try, the first one is often the salt itself! The most common form of Dead Sea salt is as bath salts, which you can add to a bath to help make your own little Dead Sea at home. This salt will help exfoliate and smooth your skin, just like the Dead Sea does in Jordan itself.
2. Dead Sea Mineral Bath Bombs
If you really love taking a bath, bath salts aren’t your only option; Trinitae also makes a fizzy bath bomb (bath ball) with Dead Sea minerals (including salt) in it. They come in a number of colors, and all feature a blend of essential oils from the Sensation collection.
3. Dead Sea Mineral Bath Bubbles
There’s nothing quite like a great bubble bath; there are also Dead Sea products for that! Dead Sea Treasures makes a Dead Sea mineral-rich bubble bath that you can use sparingly to make your bath transport you to the shores of the Dead Sea.
4. Dead Sea Mineral Shampoo & Conditioner
Jordan Dead Sea products aren’t limited to those you can add to your bath – as you’ll see, the rest of this list covers products that work from head to toe!
Starting out, there are a few options for shampoos and conditioners that use Dead Sea minerals. These vary in terms of what they use from the Dead Sea, the scents and uses, and other chemicals added. But they are all made by Jordanian companies, so you can browse and purchase knowing you’re supporting local businesses; the only one I could find that sold its products on line was Dead Sea Treasures, which offers both shampoo and balsam (conditioner).
I saw other Dead Sea products companies that sold shampoo and conditioner but couldn’t verify if they were using Dead Sea ingredients, so I didn’t include them on this list!
5. Dead Sea Mud Hair Mask
For an extra level of hair care, you could also try doing a Dead Sea mud hair mask. These are intense – be prepared for the time it will take to wash out the product after you use it. But it’s worth it, as Dead Sea mud helps reduce scalp irritation and dandruff, plus cleans and softens hair. Dead Sea Treasures offers the only mud hair mask I could find.
6. Dead Sea Mud Soap
Speaking of Dead Sea mud, you might be more open to using it on your skin. Loads of companies make Jordan Dead Sea products with mud you can apply to your skin (including facial mud, which I mention below); I prefer to use a mud soap instead, as it’s a bit less messy and intense at home. (After all, you can’t just go hop in the Dead Sea to wash it off!)
7. Dead Sea Salt Body Scrub
In addition to using bath salts for soaking, Dead Sea salts are also commonly used in body scrubs to exfoliate and freshen your skin. This is definitely one of the most popular forms of Jordan Dead Sea products that people enjoy using while in Jordan and want to bring home. Luckily, because these products are popular, you have lots of options!
8. Dead Sea Mineral Body Lotion
Dead Sea mineral lotion was the first of these Jordan Dead Sea products I tried, and I absolutely fell in love. In fact, I liked it so much that my husband had to work hard to find me a larger bottle online when I ran out of the tiny hotel sample size I had brought home. In the end, he purchased it from Trinitae, and we restocked up during our trip to Amman in 2023. They still offer that original lotion formula (in a new bottle), so you can buy the exact one that I fell in love with.
9. Dead Sea Water Body Butter
For an even more intense moisturizer, you can go for body butter. I generally love these kinds of products, though I haven’t ever tried one with Dead Sea water. Yes, you read that right!
In addition to Dead Sea minerals, the body butter by Dead Sea Treasures uses Dead Sea water instead of normal water. That means it adds extra minerals to help make the body butter even more nourishing for your skin.
10. Dead Sea Water
Speaking of Dead Sea water, it’s such a powerful experience for your skin, you can use it on its own. Dead Sea Treasures also sells bottles of Dead Sea water (admittedly, more expensive than a bottle of regular water), but they claim it’s great for purifying and clarifying your skin. As the bottle says though, this isn’t water you can drink; it’s meant for external use to make you glow on the outside, not from the inside out!
11. Dead Sea Mud Facial Mask
Finally, I’m ending on one of the other super popular Jordan Dead Sea products: mud facial masks.
While using Dead Sea mud on your body is a powerful way to exfoliate and hydrate your skin, you might wonder if it’s too intense for delicate facial skin. The reality is that many people use Dead Sea mud on their faces when visiting the Dead Sea itself, but it is a very abrasive product to use that way. Instead, you can purchase a more delicate, finer Dead Mud facial mask product to use at home.
And there you have it – 11 incredible Jordan Dead Sea products you can purchase online and enjoy at home. All of these will allow you to transport yourself to the shores of Jordan’s Dead Sea for a moment of calm and self-care.
