After a long, busy day, there's nothing better than a hot bath—especially, a hot bath seeped with mineral-rich salts. But where in the world do your favourite salts come from? Read on to find out more about our range of natural bath salts.
DEAD SEA SALTS
The Dead Sea is well known for being abundant with mineral-rich salt. While most sea salt contains 85% sodium chloride, Dead Sea salt has a much lower 30.5% sodium chloride content. In its place, Dead Sea salt contains magnesium, calcium, potassium, zinc and a bunch of other beneficial minerals.
Our Dead Sea Salts are simply solar evaporated salt from the shores of Ein Bokek, Israel where the concentration of minerals is highest. They are 100% chemical and additive free, using only air to filter out insoluble crystals or dirt particles.
Epsom salts are named after Epsom, England, where these salts were originally obtained by boiling down mineral waters that flowed through this area. Technically, Epsom is not actually a salt, but a naturally occurring mineral compound of magnesium and sulphur, also known as magnesium sulphate.
Most common Epsom salts are manufactured from Sulphuric Acid, Magnesium Oxide and Sea Water. Our 100% natural Epsom salts are mined from rich mineral deposits in Germany—one of the few places in the world where you will find naturally occurring magnesium sulphate. These salts are skilfully extracted with the highest care in order to retain the purest and highest quality product—good enough to eat!
Magnesium flakes are made from magnesium chloride. Genuine Zechstein® magnesium is sustainably extracted from the ancient Zechstein Seabed, which is 250 million years old and lies 1500 to 2000 meters deep beneath the surface of the earth. Zechstein magnesium is considered to be the purest form of magnesium available, as this seabed has been isolated from pollutants and contaminants found in today’s oceans.
To create the flake, Zechstein seawater is drawn up from this bed and is then naturally dried into thin, flaked pieces. Our Zechstein Magnesium Flakes are pure, unrefined and unadulterated. We have ensured our flakes are sourced with minimal impact on the environment and will continue to be available for generations to come.
