Ahava – DeadSea Water Mineral Body Lotion

This week I was asked to try DeadSea Water Mineral Body Lotion from Ahava. You may not have heard of Ahava before, the brand was formed in 1988 when they started doing clinical research into the powerful effects of the Dead Sea’s rich selection of minerals in facilitating skin renewal. All Ahava products are paraben free, SLS free, not tested on animals, and contain the Osmoter™ — a perfectly balanced concentrate of Dead Sea minerals that effective replenishes, rehydrates and recharges the skin.
This Mineral Body Lotion is a white cream. As you can see from the image below it is ever so slightly gelatinous with a sort of lumpy texture to it and I think it is this that allows it to melt into the skin really quickly.
I had expected that this Mineral Body Lotion would have some kind of natural seaweed-y smell given that it contains minerals from the Dead Sea, however it has a very strong traditional floral scent. Personally the fragrance is too strong for me as I prefer body lotions with more of a gentle scent, but if you like your body lotions heavily scented then you should really like this one.
I haven’t been using Mineral Body Lotion for long enough to experience the long-term effects of the Dead Sea minerals yet, but this lotion does leave my skin feeling soft and moisturised. I like the packaging too, Ahava have kept it nice and simple and used pale neutral colours for the bottle. The lotion is dispensed via the pump nozzle but only a very small amount is dispensed with each squirt, so if you want to moisturise your whole body with this Mineral Body Lotion then you will need to press the pump many times to dispense enough product!
Overall this is a nice scented body lotion but it’s not cheap. DeadSea Water Mineral Body Lotion starts at £4.95 for a small 40ml bottle, available from Parfum Dreams. Ahava also offer other products in the DeadSea Water range, including hand cream and shower gel.
