Himalayan salt is naturally anti-microbial. These salt deposits are roughly 250 million years old, which means they were deposited long before the earth got polluted with heavy metals, pesticides and other chemicals. While there is really no such thing as “organic” salt, this is probably the most pristine salt on the planet. Pink Salt is a pristine source of natural mineral salts. The large crystals are cut up, rinsed with water, sun-dried and then grounded in powder & crystal form. No metal ever touches the salt during grinding. No salt from other sources is mixed with this salt. The light pink color of the Himalayan salt is due to the presence of Natural Iron Oxide in the salt.
