Sometimes size does matter
Cleansing, softening and calming, these big chunks of sea salt dissolve in warm water, and help the skin to stay hydrated.
Seawater or sea salt is often used in balneotherapy (a traditional, mineral water-based therapy) for the many benefits it has on skin and its calming effect on diseases that cause inflammation, such as arthritis and fibromyalgia. Sea salt is a noted anti-inflammatory, soothing the skin and supporting the protective function of the skin barrier. Rich in sodium, magnesium, and other minerals that aid moisture retention in the skin, it keeps the skin feeling soft and supple throughout the day.
A natural antiseptic, sea salt can also be used as a preservative when in sufficient quantities - it inhibits microbial growth and extend the product’s lifespan.
Extra large sea salt is purchased in Portugal, where the producer uses traditional harvesting techniques, obtaining high quality salt, while actively contributing to the maintenance of the ecosystem surrounding their workplace. Indeed, salt pans and marshes provide excellent feeding, shelter and breeding conditions for hundreds of species of birds in their migration path.
