Breton™ Grey Sea Salt
Breton™ is a certified organic bath salt harvested by hand from the island of Noirmoutier near Brittany, France. For 1,500 years, salt farmers have harvested the Noirmoutier Sea salt. Harvesting the salt is a completely natural cottage industry where the only ingredients are the sea, the sun and man.

Salt farmers follow strict harvesting rules as prescribed in the ABF specifications (Agriculture Biologique Francaise- French Organic Farming), making it worthy of having the ABL seal of approval.

Far from being mere sodium chloride, Breton™ Organic Grey Sea Salt concentrates
countless benefits taken from the sea. As the seawater slowly moves from ocean
to salt pan, exposed to wind and sun, its salt content keeps rising and the
salt crystals are enriched with health-enhancing minerals. The lower sodium
content allows for more bioavailable magnesium (in chloride form), calcium and
potassium, as well as trace elements such as copper, zinc, iron, manganese, and
even minute amounts of iodine and fluoride. Being totally natural—
unrefined, unwashed and containing no additives—Breton™ Organic Grey Sea Salt retains
all of these qualities.
