Pink Himalayan Salt is s natural clean salt, so clean you can eat it straight off the mountain! It is found only in the Himalayan region of Pakistan and has a whopping 84 minerals. The minerals on this salt are so microscopic that they easy absorb making it a great beauty ingredient.

"Mineral salts, such as Himalayan Salt, is rich in magnesium and calcium, which improves hydration by strengthening the barrier function of the skin. The minerals in the salt are also hydroscopic, meaning they attract water, so when you put them on the skin, they actually draw moisture and nutrients from the deeper levels of the skin up to the epidermis"
