Pink Himalayan Salt is such an interesting ingredient. It is the star of our wonderful Pink Himalayan Salt Soap. Yes, a very gentle vegan soap that incorporates the salt. Before i talk about the soap i wanted to tell you a little more about Pink Himalayan Salt:
Himalayan Pink Salt offers an intriguing glimpse at mineral packed crystals which formed naturally within the earth. The many hues of pink, red and white are an indication of this salt’s rich and varying mineral and iron content.
The great nutrients that make Himalayan Pink salt prized in the gourmet world makes it an absolute treasure as a bath salt. Naturally rich in 18 nourishing minerals, bathing with Himalayan Pink bath salt is a renewing and therapeutic experience for mind & body. This 250 million year old, Jurassic era sea salt is known for its healing properties and is used by health professionals, spas and individuals who are interested in utilizing natural products to heal the body and relax the mind.
“Himalayan Pink salt’s vivid pink color is a result of the trace elements in the salt, including energy-rich iron. These naturally present minerals are essential for human health, and can be readily absorbed through bathing therapies. Himalayan salt has long been praised for its healing benefits; and is known for stimulating circulation, soothing sore muscles, helping to reduce acid reflux, lowering blood pressure, and removing toxins.”
Turns out that pink Himalayan salt blends well into a cold processed vegan soap, and with slight modification of a recipe we have been using the soap turned out rather fascinating. Our Pink Himalayan Salt Soap is a gentle cold processed natural formula with a significant amount of salt blended in. We use natural ingredients, wonderful vegetable based oils, and our hero ingredient of Pink Himalayan Salt. Our formula is superfatted, which means that we add an additional amount of oil above and beyond what would make the soap a “detergent”, and instead turns the soap into a super moisturizing bar. And we scent the formula with two essential oils that smell incredible together – Eucalptus and Lemongrass. Some people even suggest it smells like Pink Lemonade. We have been making this recipe for 5 years and it turns out that Pink Himalyan Salt soap is our best seller.
