Salt is a super cleanser

Himalayan pink salt is mined from salt beds formed by oceans long since disappeared in the foothills of the Himalayas. Abundant in minerals, including magnesium, calcium, and potassium, sea salt is a super-efficient cleanser, absorbing dirt and toxins from the skin to leave the skin feeling purified.

Sea salt also has natural antibacterial properties making it a must-have for anyone who suffers from acne. Just take a look at the amazing feedback we've had from our customers who swear by using our Charcoal Detox salt soap to clear up their blemishes and spots.

Salt keeps your skin hydrated

You may be wondering how salt can keep skin hydrated - especially when eating salt leaves you reaching for a glass of water! Sea salt maintains the skin's natural barrier, helping to keep moisture locked in. If you think natural salt soap will dry out your skin, think again!
