Ahava is an Israelian company that prides themselves in using Dead Sea minerals in all of their skin care products. Minerals of all kinds are carried by the waters of the Middle East and deposited at the bottom of the Dead Sea and are said to do wonders for your skin. Magnesium, potassium, and calcium are known as Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMF). These minerals attract moisture and retain it. Translation - great ingredients to help our skin stay firm and hydrated.
Yesterday I got a sample of their Mineral Hand Cream. It's a rich cream with tons of the NMF stuff. It left my hands smooth and soft with no greasy feel with a fresh, clean, spa scent. Luv it!
