Long before the Ice Age, much of the Northern part of Continental America was an ocean. As it receded, mineral deposits were left behind from evaporation in very select areas. Dating back 400 million years, these unusual deposits are mined nearly 3000ft below the ground in Canada’s far North.
The purity and concentration of minerals from these ancient sea salts, offer detoxifying benefits to the skin. Warm water opens our pores, allowing the minerals in your bath salts to deeply cleanse our skin. Bathing in a solution of warm water and bath salts will work to draw out impurities, pollution, oil and dirt from the skin.
