What's so special about Big Sur Salts? Well, for one, our ingredients.
Let's talk about just the water for a sec. Big Sur ocean water is the base for all of our products. Big Sur has extremely clean water, mostly due to the offshore coral beds, our kelp forests, and the abundance of bivalve organisms (mollusks, oysters, clams, etc...) filtering every drop of water along our majestic coast. "Each native mussel filters about two liters of water a day, so it doesn't take a whole lot to improve water quality," - (Richard Luthy, the Silas H. Palmer Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and a senior fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment).
Even with the abundance of natural filtration working out there, we filter the water a few more times before it's done. The human effort, alone, equals 7 steps of filtration, even after the natural filters work their magic!
People ask me all the time - "Why do I want that in my mouth?"
Well, the cleanest water available yields the cleanest salt available. #craftsalts #ingredients #saltlife
