Sahara Desert Salt, Morocco
Centuries ago, in a remote mountain region in the southern foothills of the High Atlas range in south-east Morocco, where the mountains merge into the Sahara Desert, an ancient well was driven into the barren rock of a rugged landscape. For eons, caravans came from the desert in order to barter dates for the much sought after pinkish salt that the well produced. To this day, pack animals are still used to transport this precious commodity. Owing to the extremely inaccessible location of the well, there is only a limited supply of this highly treasured salt, which is said to be the tears of the Greek God Atlas.
Kalahari Desert Salt, South Africa
280 to 300 million years ago during the Paleozoic era in a formation known as the Dwyka, salt leached from what is known today as the semi-desert region of part of the Kalahari in Africa. At this time in our history the Earth was pristine, pure and unpolluted unlike today with the many oil spills and the dumping of all sorts of waste into our oceans and lakes.
Salt production is located the most undisturbed ancient inland underground salt pan deposit in this area to bring to you the best unpolluted, natural salt available, without any additives or chemicals.
Kalahari Desert Salt is ancient. Some people have quoted over 300 million years old. As the name implies, it comes from the Kalahari Desert where it is harvested from from a natural underground salt lake. The salt brine gets pumped to the surface before being dried in the sun. Robust with natural minerals and trace elements.
Namibian Desert Salt, Namibia
From the purest deep water of Antarctica and the sun of Africa arises on the coast Namibia, on the edge of the world's oldest desert - the Namib - our African Snowflakes salt. "African snow" as the Fleur de Sel in Namibia is affectionately called, is the noblest variant of sea salt. It forms only a few days a year with much sun, less humidity and a light breeze. The young salt then drifts like a very thin layer like snowflakes on the water. These layers are blown by the wind to the shores of the salt pans and harvested there by hand. The drying takes place gently under the desert sun. So our salt keeps all minerals and trace elements that make it so valuable. It is the result of Antarctic freshness and African sun.
