It is probably a salt, yes, but nothing you would want to eat or taste.
Even when swimming in the dead sea you have to be careful not to get your eyes wet with the stuff. It's something like an oily water unlike anywhere
Its not oily just stings your eyes do to high salt content but it is incredibly easy to float and very hard to drown yourself.
I know it's not oily, but it feels oily or greasy when you swim or touch it. If you've been there ya know what I mean.
As for it getting in the eyes, my friends say you need someone to help you out and wash your eyes clean because it hurts so bad, but I don't know
because I didn't want to find out =)
The water of the Dead Sea has a greasy feel to it.
