To create this ingredient, sea salt is dissolved in water before rose clay is added. This blend is boiled to evaporate the water and create salt crystals that harness the rose clay and its valuable skin benefits.
Seawater and sea salt are often used in balneotherapy (a traditional, mineral water-based therapy); practitioners believe that they have a calming effect on inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis and fibromyalgia. Sea salt is a noted anti-inflammatory, soothing skin and supporting the protective function of its epidermal barrier. Rich in sodium, magnesium, and other minerals that aid moisture retention, it keeps skin feeling soft and supple throughout the day.
Rose clay complements the effects of sea salt in skincare. This is actually a combination of gently cleansing kaolin (a white clay), and iron oxide (a pink pigment) that Lush purchase from the USA.
