What is Salt Soap?

Salt makes a beautiful bar of soap. But why would you use it over a more "traditional" bar?

Sea Salt has many benefits for the skin. Just like the effect swimming in the ocean has, salt soap can help to gently exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells and leaving behind super soft and glowing skin.

Rich in minerals such as iron, zinc, calcium & potassium, Sea Salt is a natural humectant. That means it draws moisture to your skin. Contrary to what you would expect, salt soap is also non drying to your skin.

You won't obtain a big bubbly lather from a Sea Salt Bar as the salt inhibits the bubbles. What you will have however is a long lasting bar of soap with a beautiful creamy, lotion like feel.

Luminus Sea Salt Soap range contain a high percentage of Sea Salt plus a small amount of Himalayan Pink Salt for added trace minerals. Nourishing plant oils such as Pomegranate, Avocado, Tamanu, Black Cumin, Argan or Jojoba Oils round out the skin loving benefits of these beautiful soap bars. We use earth based clays and essential oil blends for colouring and scent.
