Why Sea Salt?
The Red Sea, a seawater inlet of the Indian Ocean lying between Africa and Asia is one of the most beautiful, exotic and fascinating natural wonders on earth. The Red Sea supports the world’s northern-most tropical reef and is an oasis of living creatures, reefs and coral formations, many of which are unique to the region. The Red Sea is blessed with the largest diversity of marine fauna of all tropical reefs around the world and has the highest density of coral per cubic meter of sea.
The unique bio-diversity of the living reef inside this magnificent region is our inspiration and the Red Sea is the source of our salts, allowing us to bring you a blend of science and nature with the living reef in every harvested grain. Sea salt, unlike the heavily refined commercial product you’re likely to find in your salt shaker, retains its natural trace minerals, which have a neutralizing effect on acids in the body. While it retains those minerals, sea salt lacks some of the chemicals added to table salt largely for cosmetic purposes. Simply put: sea salt offers health benefits that commercially refined salt products can’t match.
