Vital minerals & trace elements
From its ancient underground source ORYX desert SALT has all the minerals and trace elements that salt is supposed to have in the right proportion for your body to absorb and utilise for optimal functioning, vitality and health.
Three underground streams converge in an ancient underground lake. The lake holds +- 55million tons of brine and has a +- 111% saturation, which allows the salt to crystallize in +- 4 weeks in the hot summer months. The salt is collected and packed in bags. This process is not depleting the natural source.
The Dwyka rock formations through which the underground streams flow leach the Sodium Chloride (NaCl), minerals and trace elements. The rock strata are geoscientifically tested between 250-300 million years old. Ancient and pure.
The 50km2 salt pan is situated in the Kalahari Desert basin reaching over 2,5million km2. It is a remote, pristine and uninhabitable area and is as pollution free as one can get.
