Help us celebrate World Ocean Day, Friday June 8th, by doing your bit to protect our blue planet and go microbead-free! It's time to ditch those tiny coloured plastic spheres often found suspended in scrubs and shower gels, as well as many other toiletries and cosmetics, and opt instead for a little natural beauty. The US banned the production of rinse-off cosmetic products containing plastic microbeads in July 2017, with the sale of rinse-off microbead cosmetics due to be prohibited from July this year. So now's the perfect time to look for some more natural alternatives. Microbeads are often used...
Westlab's Himalayan Pink Gourmet Cooking Salt
In the same manner that vitamins and minerals are perfectly packaged in fruits and vegetables, Himalayan salt was formed naturally, the minerals within the sodium work in synergy.
Himalayan salts are mineral packed crystals which formed naturally within the earth made up of 85.62% sodium chloride and 14.38% other trace minerals including sulphate, magnesium, calcium, potassium, bicarbonate, bromide, borate, strontium, and fluoride (in descending order of quantity).
Himalayan salt also naturally contains Iodine, meaning that a synthetic form need not be added in.
Approximately 250 million years ago crystallized sea salt beds left over from evaporated ocean water were completely covered by lava creating the perfect protective barrier leaving the remaining salt in a pristine environment. The lava was then further enclosed in tons of snow and ice, keeping the salt beds preserved and protected from modern day pollutants, making Himalayan Pink salt the purest salt to be found on earth. It is now hand-mined from the mountains and brought to the culinary market.Benefits
