Product Rating: 4.9/5 (As per 54 Customer Reviews)
The Dead Sea is the most saline body of water in the world with a mineral concentration of approximately 32%, according to The Dead Sea Research Center at the Ben Gurion University of the Negev. Mud from the Dead Sea has a high content of salts and minerals that are claimed to be essential for the body, and it is widely used in Pelotherapy. Dead Sea Mud may thus cleanse and draw out impurities from the skin, and tightens & tones the complexion, giving it a refreshed look.
Directions For Use: We recommend that you apply the Dead Sea Mineral Mud as a face or body mask, and leave it on the skin until the mud is somewhat dry. Rinse it off well, then follow it up with a moisturizer.
Usage: 5-100% in skin-care products, 1-2 T. / 15-30ml per lb. / 500g of soap.
Active Ingredients: Please note that this product is not fragranced, and has a very mild odor similar to that of seawater. This pure Dead Sea mud is infused with the mineral-rich Dead Sea water and is preserved with a natural preservative to keep the product safe for use.
Important Note: Upon receiving the 25 kg containers of the mud, please do not throw out the water sitting on top of the mud as the water-soluble preservative is suspended in it. Please thoroughly mix the contents of the container before using it or storing it.

Rating: This product is not as thick as I thought it would be, but it goes on smoothly, and is very refreshing! The color is more grey out of the jar, not black as the photo suggests. It has a lovely "pulling" effect as it dries, much like Rhassoul clay. It has just a wee bit of a sting to it, but it's not intolerable. Rinses off easily, and leaves skin polished and feeling softer. A very enjoyable experience, with noticeable skin balancing effect. Great deal for the money!

Rating: This super rich mud needs nothing at all added to be deep cleansing and effective. I do love to add some essential oils and floral waters to dilute it a little, but love it out of the container as well!
By:Nadia, Hamilton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Feb-2012
Rating: Great product! I started using this product once a week and my skin tone is no longer uneven plus my acne cleared up! Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Date: Loyal Customer Since: 30-Mar-2016
Rating: Excellent product! I got a wonderful radiant /super-even skin tone just after few weeks of use.
My face skin is oily and rather sensitive and MUD Mask make my eyes watery for a while...but worth to wait for 10 min.
Super-strong stuff! I am going to try it on my whole body as well. Will buy again!
Rating: This mud is amazing! I use a few times a week and my skin has vastly improved. It is glowing and clear. Everyone I give the mask to (samples etc) loves it and they have all come back for more! It has a super super mild sulphuric smell to it (which should really be expected) but it's hardly noticeable. You can actually feel and see this mud pulling all the oil and junk out of your pore! LOVE IT! I am almost sold out and now need to buy more.

Rating: I am very happy with my purchased you can feel this mud acting immediately after application it is just soothing I hope to see improvement in skin texture with long term usage.
Rating: Excellent price. Excellent size! Makes your skin feel really wonderful after use. I put it as is directly on my face, let it dry, and wow! I do have sensitive skin so I did feel the tingle, but it really worked amazing and I had no reactions at all. I will be buying this again. Fantastic.
By:Stephanie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Aug-2010
Rating: I wasn't really sure what to expect when I bought this, but it's a great product! My skin felt amazing after use, I didn't have any irritation or redness- just looked fresh. I'm super happy with it, and will definitely be using it weekly. I highly recommend it!

Rating: Got this from my first order from NDA, shipping was super fast! I made a mask with this yesterday and was impressed, it let my skin soft and more clear. I didn't find the smell overpowering and I think the color of this mud is very pretty haha. I will buy this again.
Rating: Hubby and I tried this as a face mask one night - and he absolutely loved it. Was also a best seller at a craft fair I did. Will definitely be ordering again and glad that I kept some for myself.
By:Ayla, Sherwood Park, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Aug-2013
Rating: This was my first experience with this product, I didn't mind the smell, I kind of expected it. I made a mask in the evening for my face and decollete, initially I had some redness ( I have reactive skin) but in the morning I saw the difference. Tighter skin, smoothness and an improvement with my labial folds.
Rating: The smell is a little odd, but not overly offensive, and the texture is really rich, smooth and thick. Great product, once again!
By:Amelie, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Feb-2009
Rating: This mud is slightly too harsh for my face. But it makes a nice body and foot scrub when EO are added so that the scent is not overpowering.
By:Pauline, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Apr-2011
Rating: An amazing product my skin felt so tight after using this product....wonder how it work on the saggy underarms ;)
By:Stacey, Belmont, Nova Scotia
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Jan-2013
Rating: My customers love this stuff, I can't keep it in stock. At craft shows it is always the first thing to sell out and I get repeat orders. A little does go a long way! I've had everyone from teenagers to senior citizens tell me how much they love how their skin feels after using it!
Rating: I tried this about a month back as a facial mask straight from the container. I have very sensitive skin and I found it too harsh for myself because it felt like someone threw alcohol on a wound. It did make my skin soft afterwards but i wouldn't use it for myself again as i feel my skin is just too sensitive for it. But i did give some out to family and friends to try and they all loved it. Overall good product. The smell makes people hesitant to try it at first but the results are worth it.
By:Kyla, Espanola, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-Jan-2012
Rating: I used to buy the dead sea mineral mud. It isn't on the list anymore. So I checked this out and was sad to see that it contained Euxyl K702 which is a preservative. I've been reading up on it and it just doesn't seem safe to me. Please bring back the plain mud.
New Directions Aromatics Response:
This preservative is approved for use in cosmetics by USA, EU and Japan. It is rated as safe in the concentrations (0.2 - 1.2% use for leave in and rinse off formulations) given and is classed as biodegradable and accepted by Ecocert.

Rating: This stuff is AMAZING. Just ripped open my order (first time customer). A little goes a LONG way. I used too much (probably 1/2-1 tablespoon). I diluted it a bit with some of the sandalwood water I bought and added a few drops of bergamot. Then I added a pinch of green tea extract (for antioxidants, and maybe caffeine(?) to brighten my complexion), and a pinch of papaya extract (to gently exfoliate). I had enough to easily cover my face, neck, shoulders, and upper chest/decolleté area). It dried pretty quickly, so I put my steamer unit on my face for about 8-10 mins. Then I washed it off. My skin felt so firm and tight (but not uncomfortably so) and clean. I'm using this to help cleanse my skin while I detox by doing a gentle cleanse diet. Fantastic!
Rating: Excellent product. Highly recommend for a face/body/foot mask for home spa. I used with some drops of Orange Sweet Essential Oil for a refreshing feeling.
Ordered 25kg, nicely packed, easy to store, and the smell is not strong.

Rating: I'm wondering if anyone knows the ingredients in this, or more specifically the INCI name. I would like to use this is some of the products I sell, but can't without the INCI name. On another note - I LOVE LOVE LOVE this mask. I don't find the smell bad at all. I read someones comment on the foot mask, and can't wait to try it with my friends at girls night tonight!!

Rating: I was so excited to finally receive my order of this mud and I was not disappointed! I really liked the smell and I used it on my face, feet and my armpits as a previous comment had mentioned. It is amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed each experience and will be buying more and in a larger quantity right away! I already have some of my customers very eager to try it out as well! Thanks fro this great product!

Rating: Nice product...i dont find the smell bad or strong at all. Thank you :)
By:Phyllis, Halifax County, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Jul-2011
Rating: I could not wait to try this stuff out!
Put it on my face like a mask. It is quite thick, and the sulphuric smell is a little harsh. Next time I will be adding some essential oils.
Immediately after putting it on, I could feel the delightful tightening of my skin as the mud dried. It took a bit of effort to wash it off, but once my skin was dry it felt amazing.
I'm already looking forward to using it again, and I am recommending it to friends. I will definitely be buying more.
By:Kayla, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-Apr-2010
Rating: Ok, if you can get past the smell, you'll be alright. The sulfuric odour aside, the mud is great, straight on the face. I wanted to soften up the mud a bit as it is not pourable or even scoopable into a bottle. I added a bit of grapeseed oil to a small amount and tried to thin it that way. That didn't work. It did, however make for a nice rub. I used it on my face and it felt so soft and exfoliated afterwards. The mud clumped up and formed little blobs with the addition of the grapeseed oil. It didn't combined and soften the mud. Anyone know how i can thin this out to get into small bottles? I don't want to add water for fear of spoiling.
By:Farkhanda, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Feb-2010
Rating: Possibly my best buy yet! I use this product as a ritual once a week. It leaves my skin completely rejuvenated and remineralized-- I also noticed it helps to heal damaged skin.
By:Erica, Maple, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Jun-2011
Rating: Amazing!!!! I love working with this stuff. I have done facials mixed with other clays, oils, floral waters and essential oils to customize the treatment and the results were fantastic. I have done a detox foot mask and my customers were detoxed. They reported feeling refreshed and alittle lighter on their feet,LOL. The smell doesn't seem to be an issue since I add essential oils to it. Top quality product!!!
Rating: I did find this product a bit irritating/drying to my skin and did cause some redness. It certainly did tighten my skin. I will try to blend it with some grapeseed oil and see how that goes- but not again just on its own.
By:Betsy, Brockville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 23-Apr-2010
Rating: It is certainly dead sea mud! I found it to be very drying! I did not mix it with anything else though. Irritated my face a bit. Might be better in the tub with some salts!
By:Leeann, Grand Valley, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-May-2008
Rating: Very nice product - used straight as a mask and my face felt cleansed and baby fresh! Added to my repurchase list. Looking forward to using it in soap! Not full five stars, as it has a distinct saline sea scent
By:Yulia, North York, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 17-May-2006
Rating: A silky, dark grey/green mud. It makes a wonderful mask when mixed with seaweed powder and grapeseed oil. I also use it plain as a spot treatment for pimples, and it seems to help.
By:Jenn, Vancouver, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Mar-2010
Rating: This mud is fabulous, except for the smell. Skin feels great after and the price is nice.
Rating: After reading everyone else's glowing reviews of the Dead Sea mud, I wanted so badly to like it. I have hormonal, acne-prone, "schizophrenic" skin, and was hoping this would tone down the inflammation and clear it up. This does indeed draw impurities out of the skin, but what I find is, with me, it just dredges up everything to the skin's surface and causes more breakouts. I've tried doing it every day for a week, I've tried doing it every other day, I've tried only doing it once a week, once a month, using it as a spot treatment... I bought the 1kg. jar, and now that I've gone through more than half of it, I really don't think I'd recommend it for problem skin like mine. I'm sure it's a miracle mud for others, but it never really "clears up" acne prone skin the way I hoped it would.
By:Crystal, Port Moody, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Apr-2008
Rating: This is awesome, and what a wonderful price. I worked in spas and this product would cost you a fortune. I use it on sore muscles, breakouts, and blackheads. And with the cost you can't go wrong.
By:Shirleen, Penetanguishene, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Jul-2006
Rating: I just got this mask in the mail today and it is AWESOME.
It drys prettty fast and my skin was SOOO clean after I used it. I felt like I just came back from the spa.
I highly recommend this product. It's hard to find a pure mud that you can use for your face, so I'm glad I found this one!
Rating: I recommend that everyone should try this, I didn't add anything to this I put it straight onto my face, it feels very rich and left my skin feeling nourished and toned, This will be a big part of my skin care regime from now on, it is a great price and the packaging as always is second to none ty NDA.
Rating: An excellent product that is suitable for all skin types. I use it in masks combinations with very good results for inflammatory conditions.
By:Sorina, Ottawa, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 30-Aug-2009
Rating: This is a great product, I use regularly on my underarms.........yes underarms!! I have always have problems with odour and do not wish to use any of the chemical ladden products out there, so I usually put some of this under my arms let it sit for about 10 minutes...so read a magazine for that time, have a nice bath and then wash it right off in the tub. When I use this product at least 3 times per week I have very little problems with odour or bacteria forming in the arm pit area. Great for a facial mask as well!!
By:Laury, Brampton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Dec-2005
Rating: This stuff is the BEST!!! When my delivery came it was the first thing I tried and I was NOT disappointed! It great I used it as a mask and it totally cleaned out my visible pores. I also tried it as a spot treatment on my pimples and it cleared that up too! GREAT PRODUCT!
Rating: This stuff is great. I decided to use it as soon as I received it and it felt so good on my skin! As soon as my clients knew it was in stock, they wanted it! I don't want to give it away though, because its so excellent for my skin! But I will share!!!

Rating: Love ND Dead Sea mud I find it to be very useful for cosmetic applications and for therapeutic purposes. I incorporated Dead Sea Mud into my skin care, hair care and body care products because it is a wonderful astringent. Dead Sea Mud is an anti-inflammatory that soothes skin, removes oil and impurities. It draws toxins, balances hormones and provides essential nutrients to the body. Highly recommend this product for anyone who suffers from acne, eczema, arthritis, psoriasis, rheumatism, fibromyalgia, fatigue, dry hair and cellulite.
Dead Sea mud is versatile because you can add essential oils, aloe, seaweed, extracts and botanicals to enhance healing properties to suit your need. Makes for a great spa day at home with your girlfriends or husband too.
