Sea salt for skin
Pink Himalayan salt for skin
Despite the name, there are actually no salt mines in the Himalayan mountain range. The pink salt slabs come from the Khewra Salt Mine in Pakistan, roughly 300 miles west of the Himalayas. As the second largest salt mine in the world, people have been gathering this commodity for more than 2,000 years. Only in the last decade or so has it become popular in Western culture. The salt is comprised of 95 percent sodium chloride. The rest is a mix of polyhalite and other minerals, which give the salt its characteristic pink hue. Because of the lack of processing, it still contains the beneficial minerals that your skin will love.
