Dead Sea Works Ltd. (DSW) is now operating the world’s largest production plant of Magnesium Chloride. DSW’s product is harvested from the unique waters of the Dead Sea. Each litre of Dead Sea water contains 170 gms of Magnesium Chloride. DSW uses vast solar energy pans to evaporate these brines to 33% concentration. Magnesium Chloride is obtained through further dehydration by heat and flaking/pelletising processes. At about 47% concentration, our material is white, is consistently of good, stable quality.
In addition, our company offers world wide logistical services to support delivery. We also maintain stock of our product in Europe and U.S.A.

When removing Dead Sea Magnesium Chloride from its packing, the product at first appears dry. Due to its hygroscopic nature, it readily takes on atmospheric moisture and softens rapidly. The bagged material should be kept closed in a dry atmosphere. When stored under suitable conditions, Dead Sea Magnesium Chloride will keep for years.

Since 1996, we are operating a new fully modern salt refinery.
Our Refined Salts are product of a natural and evironmentally friendly process out of the unique Dead Sea Waters. The process is mainly a solar evaporation process, which takes advantage of the climatic conditions at the Dead Sea area. All the manufacturing is done in a close circuit production and packed automatically to avoid contamination of any kind. The final result is a natural, high purity product that can be tailor fitted to the customer’s requirements.
We also produce Salt Tablets for the water softening industry.

Following the trend of increased health awareness and the dietary necessity to decrease Sodium intake, we have developed our own low sodium product - Sal Kal.
Our Sal Kal is a mixture of Potassium Chloride (KCl) and Sodium Chloride (NaCl) to which we have added a unique range of taste additives, manufactured by a unique process. A better tasting low sodium salt for your kitchen and your table.
Sal Kal can be manufactured in a variety of NaCl / KCl ratios, with or without Iodine compound - all in accordance with customer’s requirements and individual governments regulations.

The waters of the Dead Sea are unique, having a total salt concentration that is 10 times higher than ocean water, reaching 33 % versus 3 %. But that’s not all! The composition of the brines is also unique, comprising magnesium, potassium and calcium chlorides, in addition to a high concentration of bromides.
This extraordinary chemical composition has made the Dead Sea an ideal spot for people seeking relief from skin and rheumatic disorders, and an equally popular choice for vacationers seeking relaxation. In fact, these soothing miracle-working waters have a reputation that dates back over 2000 years when the Roman historian Flavius noted… "The Dead Sea cannot be praised too highly… travelers take this salt home because it heals the human body and is therefore used in many medicines."
Bringing the Dead Sea’s properties right into the bathtub for relaxation and relief, the widely reputed soothing effects of the Dead Sea can now be enjoyed in the privacy of one’s home. Now every bathtub, hot tub, Jacuzzi and whirlpool can be a private spa, brimming with the widely reputed therapeutic benefits of the Dead Sea’s life giving minerals, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year - whenever anyone, anywhere wants relief or relaxation.
Dead Sea Bath Salts can also be used as a raw material in the cosmetic industry.
