Why you should be using natural salts in baths

Brandon Vickers from Bruntwood Lane

Ocean bathing has long been considered a healthy practice – especially for sufferers of eczema and dermatitis. So, forget Dead Sea salt concoctions! Here’s a brief spotlight on our local Marlborough sea salt.

It’s naturally rich in over 20 trace minerals including calcium, magnesium, potassium and many others. These salts are known to assist and promote skin barrier function giving a soothing and moisturising bathing experience.

So, have a go at adding a scoop of Marlborough sea salt to your next bath and indulge in the luxurious healing powers of the ocean.
