When I was a child, my mother would tell us not to shower right away after returning home from the beach. She believed that the sea salt residue visible on our skin contained minerals that were healthy for us and that our bodies needed to absorb them. It turns out she was correct. Sea salt contains calcium, known for its ability to deep clean pores, bromide, known for its ability to soothe skin, and potassium, known for its ability to reduce water retention. According to Livestrong.com  http://www.livestrong.com/article/156225-benefits-of-sea-salt-for-the-skin/ , sea salt is a natural skin detoxifier, absorbing toxins from the skin. The Greeks and the Romans also practiced talassotherapy, using sea water as a therapy to help people to relax and promote better sleep. Each bar weighs between 3.5 and 4 ounces.

 

* Sodium hydroxide is a necessary ingredient to mix with oil to make natural and gentle soap. All soap is made with sodium hydroxide. However, once the soap begins to harden, sodium hydroxide levels reduce until they are no longer present. The soap you purchase from Vita Pulita will no longer contain sodium hydroxide.
