Purest Himalayan Salt
Well, we believe the mined Himalayan crystal salt from Pakistan is one of the purest salts available on earth. The Himalayan Salt Range, a mountain range close to the Himalayas in Pakistan and India, is a pristine area. Also, We regularly send out Himalayan pink salt samples to independent labs, to test it for heavy metals. In the result, we have never seen a sign of contamination by any toxins or pollutants in our tested Himalayan rock salt crystals. Because we don’t want to compromise on our quality standards & measures!
Moreover, we have invested a huge money in creating a clean facility. We provide a healthy working environment. And, of course, a well skilled & trained staff. They wear the full miners’ dress where they blast the salt in the salt mines. And, then transport the salt out of the mine to the working facility on a vehicle. In the said Himalayan pink salt facility, all the washers have clean hands and, of course, they wear the hygienic gloves. They wash the salt with water and let it dry in the sun. Also, an enclosed machine with stainless steel hammers and an automated sieving and filling assembly. Thus, we better protect the Himalayan pink salt from contamination by airborne dust and other particles. At last, we would like to remind you that the Himalayan salt is the best mineral for making Himalayan salt lamps in natural, crafted, and animal shape salt lamps!
