Himalayan Pink Salt is renowned as the purest salt available. This is because it comes from the peaks of Himalayan Mountains which were under the sea over 200 million years ago. As the plates moved, it caused evaporation and intense conditions that lead to the formation of the salt crystals. And thus they are protected from pollutants (or most of them). Himalayan Pink Salt is helpful to soothe sore muscles, detoxify the body and skin, and balances pH.
