Spa of Iceland’s sea salt comes from an Icelandic sustainable sea salt producer who sources the mineral rich sea salt in the last stage of evaporation. The salt, which tastes bitter due to natural minerals that increase in the final stage of evaporation, is what we use in our bath line.
The sea salt is rich in magnesium, calcium, sodium and potassium
which soften the skin and improve its texture, providing a beautiful and healthy skin and supports healthy scalp.
Our producer uses geothermal energy as the sole energy source during the whole process, which means that the entire process leaves zero carbon footprint on the environment and zero CO2 and CH4 emission.
The story behind the salt
Salt of life
In restaurants around the world you see pepper and salt on the table.
In fact, salt has occupied a place of culinary dominance across cultures and it has been used from the beginning of civilization to preserve food.
Salt has always been important to man because it has been used in a variety of ways. Salt originates in a rock on land, but dissolves in water and reaches the sea. The salt we use in our food is the same as in the sea. But salt is a material that conceals itself, the crystals have a dice shaped structure.
The simplicity of salt has meant that people have taken it as a self-evident product that can be easily applied in its natural state. However, this is not the case and in recent times emphasis has been placed on improving processing methods to ensure the purity of the salt and quality of the final product. It is clearly shown in the process of Icelandic crystal sea salt produced by Saltverk Reykjanes company, located in the north of the island under the Arctic Circle. The purity of the origin controls the process, which means that geothermal energy is used at all stages of production. Thus, there is a unique product that is both ecologically and faithfully derived from Iceland's natural environment. Purity and focus on environmental sustainability shine through the entire process of Saltverk.
The purity of crystal salt makes it an ideal basis for other products, such as bath salts. Ever since the beginning of civilisation, mankind tried to make bath salts to promote hygiene, health and well-being. Bath salts are very beneficial for the skin. Adding quality bath salt to a hot bath, opens the pores and allows the minerals to be absorbed easily by the skin. It is important that the bath salt is pure and natural and that it contains the positive additives. Thus, it does not only have external effects but also improves the well-being of those who use it. Going to a hot bath with a Spa of Iceland bath salt is good for both body and soul.
