¡¡¡¡The nine-bend Yellow River breeds the Chinese civilization.
¡¡¡¡Likewise the Yuncheng Salt Lake breeds the Chinese salt culture.
¡¡¡¡Located in the South Shanxi Basin of China's Shanxi Province,the Yuncheng Salt Lake was formed in the Quaternary Period of the Cenozoic Era.After seas dried up and mountains rose up,a great amount of saline mineral substances gathered here.And after a long period of deposition and evaporation,a natural salt lake was formed here.
¡¡¡¡In feudal China,the salt tax in the area of what is now the Yuncheng Salt Lake once accounted for one eighth of the country's financial revenue.Therefore,the Yuncheng Salt Lake contributed a lot to the livelihood and reproduction of the Chinese nation.It can even match the world-famous Dead Sea in lsrael.The black mud on its bed contains 7 kinds of major elements and 16 kinds of minor elements.People can stay in the water just like riding in a boat.And the black mud can enliven and beautify the skins and muscles.Therefore,the Yuncheng Salt Lake is praised as the "China Dead Sea".
¡¡¡¡Yuncheng Salt Lake is the third largest sodium sulfate inland lake in the world with an area of 132 square kilometers and has a development history of more than 5000 years.
¡¡¡¡In October 2003, to effectively protect the salt lake resource, NaFine made the application to the state council industrial and commercial administration for the registration of trademarks like ¡°Dead Sea¡± ¡°Shenzhou Dead Sea¡± ¡°Huaxia Dead Sea¡± ¡°Yuncheng Dead Sea¡± and ¡°Sanjin Dead Sea¡±. And that was approved by the administration.
