We love using salt as it’s a natural preservative but also a great scrub that leaves the skin super soft. In addition, this extra fine grade allows us to give products nice textures and have a homogeneous distribution of saltiness.
There are different types of salt - some come from the sea (or saltwater lakes), while others are mined from the ground. At Lush, we generally prefer to use sea salt because it is less processed and has more minerals, but sometimes the moisture content is so high that it doesn’t match well with our formulae. This is why this food-grade, extra fine salt is purchased from a salt mine in Cheshire, UK.
